the best place to live and raise a family?
 
Canada or United States?

Bhagi Katbamna 11-16-2012 10:45 AM

It hurts me to say this but I would say Canada based on economic freedom and potential.

I'm sure both places are just fine. The skills and involvement of the parents will have much greater impact than citizenship, in this case. Places such as Syria or Pakistan might be a different story, though.

Huntington Beach, CA. Best weather, great schools, diversity, and most of all lots of tennis courts

That's like saying "which is better, the Atlantic or pacific?"
You'll have to be more specific.
There are huge differences within each country based on your location and what you're looking for.

Stanstead, Quebec. You're right on the border. Apparently some living on the US side have driveways that briefly pass through Canada.

I voted for the Pacific Ocean.

So many billions of families with billions of years of tradition.

Detroit......not that far from Canada

GrizzlyAdams would prefer Alaska, or the Yukon.
Where does DonaldTrump live? He can live anywhere he wants.
Should the homeless live in Ross or Blackhawk? Down and out in BeverlyHills?
Should Shaq raise his family in ProvoUtah?
Can VanillaIce survive in Watts?

According to the propaganda the government put out, the United States it the best country on earth. Kinda like a Snapple!

Canada weather leaves something to be desired for tennis players.

Not really big lakes that taste funny?

And you didn't answer my question. I must know these things.
And while we're at it, is a January summer or July summer better?

January summer in Johannesburg is hotter then July summer in Vancouver. Better, I don't know.

I have never seen One taco Truck in Canada so my vote goes to the good old USA.

U.S.A...warmer climate in the southern states...plus friends bring over desserts with pecans in it here. Just had a great dessert that my friend, Miss Martha brought over.

quest01 11-16-2012 05:18 PM

I would say the United States maybe Las Vegas.

PCXL-Fan 11-16-2012 05:23 PM

I'm seriously suprised you don't consider Orstalia in there. Their economy is growing faster than Canadas. And its economy isn't tied as closely to Americas which imo will sadly be better for the Orssies

Orstralia

I agree with this sentiment - the intracountry variance far outweighs the intercountry variance.
