That article actually came out only a couple days after the election. The idea of disaffected Americans moving to Canada has been discussed in several threads, including this one.
It's still a valid topic, although we might want to post to one of those threads, instead of starting another.
Does anyone know the difference in cost of living US east coast vs Toronto. And also what the average/median salary would be in Cananda?
Can't be much worse than what we have here in the DC area.
Though I am looking for sources of info on this myself. From what I have heard Montreal is the most expensive area.
True ... Though the Canadian dollare took quite a beating lately. Toronto seemed cheap when I paid US$ .... Going to visit Vancouver next year. Will see...
One has to weigh way one wants a "new life" in another country. There are always "costs" that can not be measured for "happiness".
True ... That's why I choose to live outside Holland
Puzzled by your listing of DC as your city. How is it there for those of us that don't speak the language?
Washington DC is outside Holland (I think at one point we owned the area around NYC but that was ages ago). However, it becomes more difficult to stay here (visa etc..). Thus looking for alternatives --> Canada?
You can manage fine in Holland without speaking Dutch
The Canadian dollar is down to 1.19 against the US dollar; it's very strong right now.
Montréal can be expensive but it's a huge city with a vast metro area; there is very affordable housing in many places on the island (I've been checking it out for a few months).
The loonie is right at 84 cents, up from 65 cents just a couple of years ago. Many foreign currencies are very, very good investment plays, right now. Check out Everbank.com...
That, and there is something in the water there, the women are...
Oh holy **** tell me about it.
I never saw such a... "target rich environment" ... in my life.
More college students per sqaure mile than anywhere (else) in North America.
