Wrong again my good freind


World's most livable cities


Canadian cities have the highest rankings in the Americas. Vancouver kept the top spot, at number five, followed by Ottawa, toronto and Montreal. San Francisco was the premier urban center in the United States at 27.

hmm, don't see Ottawa on that list
http://www.rcinet.ca/en/2...p-5-most-liveable-cities/
Seems to be missing from this one, as well.

But instead of looking at silly rankings, consider for a second, where a young millionaire would like to live more... Ottawa, or a city with, you know, a nightlife, culture, and generally fun things to do?

I mean, if your bedtime is 5pm, sure, Ottawa's a great city to live in. But since hockey players usually need to be awake around 7pm...

...

actually, I think I found out what's wrong with the Sens.

You're right.

The hot air balloons make it a far more desirable location.

There is much more that you don't know about Gatineau. The number one tourist destination in the National Capital region resides in Gatineau.

So to have fun in Ottawa you suggest leaving Ottawa?



I actually like Ottawa and the surrounding area though.

The National Capital region includes both Ottawa and Gatineau.........it's Canada's fourth Largest metropolitan area. It's like one city to those of us who live here. Some people live in Province and work in the other. Some people (dough-heads) but their beer in Ontario, while others save up to $10.00 per case of 24 buying our Beer in Quebec.

Lots of beer is still cheaper in Ontario, but that's mostly just craft beer. Big brand lagers are mostly cheaper in Quebec. The Gatineau area has a nice selection of Quebec brewed beer that you can't find in Ontario too. As a whole Quebec produces the best beer in Canada so that's pretty huge if you like beer.

Pretty nice store.

No, there's stuff to do in every city/town/hamlet... but nobody could seriously say that, as far as entertainment goes, Ottawa has anything on Toronto.


And really, unless you want that quiet life, or want to get into politics, there's no reason to live in Ottawa over Toronto.

I wonder if that's in the sales pitch when they're signing players to million dollar contracts.

As far as entertainment goes, there is just as much here in Ottawa as there is in any other City in Canada. There are more golf courses per capita in the Ottawa and surrounding area than anywhere else in North America other than Myrtle Beach.


And really, unless you want to spend hours commuting everyday, or want to get in the way of stay bullets and gang wars, there's no reason to live in Ottawa over toronto.

YEAH. THEY CAN WATCH POLITICAL DEBATES.

Ottawa sucks as a city. It's dry and boring. Nothing to do.

The Ottawa area has white water rafting. That alone makes it better than Toronto.

edit: then again it also has the Senators, that cancels that out.

Come on, weak argument. You could pick-out any killings in any city. Should I hold the Dawson shooting on Montreal and say it's not safe? Or Ecole-Polytecnique?

Wow. I have never seen such a mess of a dman defensively like Erik Karlsson in this gold medal game.

Every single time I've noticed him its because he's chasing (and by that I mean behind the Canadian rush going the other way) the play back. One might say, time and time again. Absolute junk defensively. AHL level defensively.
