    Serious answer: Vancouver is obviously the only good city in Canada and the cost of living reflects that.

    I'm a bit puzzled as to why you'd move here to get a taste of living in the US though

    The weather here is much like the UK, doesn't get hot or cold but rains a lot.

    Tronno gets super cold and very hot seasonally because it's close to user Dirtbox's shithole home town Cleveland

    Dirtbox lives in Cleveland? No wonder he's always angry.

    @monkman76 if the picture of his coffee maker is anything to go by he lives in the house from resident evil 7.

    We have a huge Asian population in Vancouver and they all just buy Uncle Ben's microwave rice

    What's wrong with Quebec? Most of the Quebec-ese I've met have been okay. Well, a couple were a little weird.

    I think the québécois’ appalling French would put me off moving there.

    They're a sub species of their own. Like the Welsh but somehow more sense of entitlement and arrogance

    FWIW, I visited Canada last year and went to both Toronto and Vancouver. I'd agree, overall, that Vancouver is the nicer place to live, but that's because I'm an old fart and the bustling Toronto gave me fatigue. I'd say if you're under 30, and have a chance to live or study in Canada, go to Toronto.

    As for Vancouver, I love nature walks and Stanley Park is hands down the best national Park I've ever been to. If I lived there I would honestly go every weekend.

    Well, Vancouver is the least affordable housing in North America. Young people can't afford to live here.

    It's brilliant

    Looking at the kind of money we paid for previous apartments (and frankly the current one, although this one's nice at least) that doesn't really put me off...

    Don't want to live in the city itself though as that would mean apartments (they're called 'condos' over there eh?). A modest house with small garden and 2-3 bedrooms in a pleasant area would be great. Not sure how achieveable that is, and we don't know yet what kind of incomes we can expect. Early days.

    Well, that's the rub. When you take into consideration "affordability", Vancouver real estate is second worst worldwide after Hong Kong

    It's -23 Celsius in Winnipeg right now. I spent a few weeks living near Tronno one winter as a kid and I remember my eyelids freezing shut as I blinked sleepily waiting for a bus.

    Fuck
    That
    Shit
