I'm sure there are lots of lower income folks and retirees that really love Ottawa.

Your dislike of Ottawa is obvious. In reality, it's a beautiful city.

I like Ottawa better than Calgary as far as cities go. The thing the Alberta cities have are their proximity to the Rockies.

No way. I love Calgary. It's a great city. And yeah, having the mountains under an hour away is awesome.

It's okay. Nothing special. But there isn’t much to it. It’s a slow, quiet place. And there isn’t much to offer in terms of high end, luxury type amenities. Which is exactly the type of thing that NHL players and their families would be considering. They don’t care about a 4 bedroom bungalow being more affordable in a suburban neighbourhood.

Yeah, and Vancouver proper is about 700K. Also, that figure shown up there is actually about 2.8 million for the record.

Any family man cares about quality of parks, schools, cleanliness of a city. I'd live in Ottawa any day over LA or NYC and I really love NYC.

I wasn’t disagreeing with you. More supporting what you say when you disputed that Ottawa is not bigger than Vancouver. It’s ridiculous to suggest Ottawa is bigger. The city itself doesn’t really matter. It’s the “urban area”, or “metropolitan area” that is pertinent.

That’s lovely. You have to start to realize that “median” doesn’t apply to these people.

They do, in their own small town way. Certainly not comparable to Toronto, LA, Chicago, New York. Not even remotely close.

You’re being foolish if you think Ottawa has anywhere near as much to offer to multi-millionaires, particularly those under the age of 30.

Ottawa may be the capital, but this country is run from Toronto. And the people that run it live here.

Yes, Toronto runs Canada. What's truly bothersome about this statement is that you have the audacity to call other people stupid.

You mean the tiny amount being repaid after the province paid them out for the entire history of them? Don’t expect thanks after supporting the rest of the country for decades.

It's true. It’s why companies like The Bank of Nova Scotia, and the Bank of Montreal, have their headquarters where exactly?

You realize the reason transfer payments were initiated right? To keep the Atlantic provinces afloat. They were dirt poor, and everyone was leaving, so Central Canada had to start shelling out money so the place didn't get completely deserted.

next election I vote in, whether it be municipal or Provincial or whatever I'm totally adding one final candidate to the ballot, and with Prock in my heart and mind I will place a check mark beside Toronto.
