More about Chicago: "While the title of number four confers bragging rights, it also brings challenges. 'We need to focus on creating more jobs,' said [moderate-conservative] Councillor Michael Thompson, chair of the economic development committee. 'We have to make sure people can find work; we have to make sure people have housing.'"
The article continues: "Toronto is in friendly competition with Chicago, a longtime sister city, Thompson said, noting that in September Mayor Rob Ford led a trade mission to Chicago with about 60 business people, eight councillors and a handful of city staff. 'We love Chicago,' he said. 'We support the things that Mayor (Rahm) Emanuel is doing in Chicago, and we support the relationship that we’ve had."
