Portland is of comparable population to Hamilton but also the largest city in Oregon, which makes its success or failure a belwether for the state. Ontario is blessed with the nation's capital and the province's capital/country's largest city. Oregon's scale equivalents for Toronto, Ottawa and Hamilton would arguably be Portland, Eugene and Corvallis. (Even here, however, there's a lesson: Corvallis Transit System is a fareless service.)

As for Albertan economic development, they're almost like bizarro Ontario. (And the whole of AB is half as populous as the GTA.)

Alberta forecasts a balanced budget in fiscal year 2013-14 and a surplus of $5.2 billion for 2014-15. Ontario forecasts a deficit of $12.8 billion in fiscal year 2013-14, a deficit of $10.1 billion for 2014-15 and a balanced budget in fiscal year 2017-18.
