We're #5

Time to start the debate again.

Vancouver rated #5 in the world for quality of living.

I'm sure the people who live in the Downtown Eastside are thrilled by the news that they live in the fifth best city in the world.

Let the debate begin!

It's become a tourist attraction.

Ottawa is #2 in Canada (after Vancouver) and #14 in the world. I mean, living here is OK, but not "#14 in the world" great. Have you ever been to Ottawa in mid January?

Yes, and while I was cursing to high heaven about how frigidly cold it was, I was told it was the warmest winter they'd ever had.

Vienna was #1....I've been in Vienna twice and I can't see how it got
rated so high.

That's alright, I feel the exact same way about Vancouver.

Vancouver IS a beautiful city.
I just cant afford the drop in take home pay that the move will cost.

Meh. The scenery is nice, but there's more to a city than just the backdrop.

I have some family living in Cloverdale, White Rock and Vancouver. I enjoy visiting, and it is a nice place. But the prices! Even mundane stuff like a 12" sub sandwich is $1.50 more there than Ottawa. Traffic is crazy! My modest house here at $380k costs $750k+ there. I could never afford to live there, even with a hi-tech salary.

You're right but there is more to Vancouver. As I understand it it has
the highest fitness rate in Canada and the lowest smoking rate.
It is a very "outdoors" city. My girlfriend grew up in Montreal and
even though her whole family is back there she says she would
NEVER live there again. She's an avid bike rider, skier and walker.

She loves to garden and most years our crocuses and daffodils have
come and gone before any back east are starting to poke their first
leaves out of the ground.

Of the 36 guys I worked with there were only about 8-9 of us from
Vancouver. The rest were from the prairies or Ontario. Not one of
them has "gone home". There must be something they like.

I want to know why Toronto is even on the list
