I think some of you are just pissed off because you bought a CG coat, saw some 60 year old granny wearing the same coat and decided it wasn't cool.
He's referring to Toronto, which is actually a warmer city than Minneapolis.
I don't want to call you ignorant... but Canada has a lot of major cities with warmer climates than a lot of Northern U.S. states do.
I've visited Toronto many times during the winter. His concern is accurate. You walk through a mall there, and everyone is wearing the same jacket.
The weather in Toronto is fairly mild; there's no need for a down jacket 90% of the time.
People in this city are just trendy yuppies with no personality. Moving to Toronto after university produces a lot of blind consumerism among this age group; all so you can fit in with the rest of the new young professionals making their mark in the city. The attitude and the conversations you hear these people have are nauseating - I fully sympathize with anyone getting annoyed at the trendiness of CG jackets in Toronto. It's just the tip of the iceberg.
