Canada or United States?
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.
Sumo... the Atlantic and the Pacific are OCEANS... not countries. Just thought I'd let you know. Glad I could help....
(just kiddin' you... cuz it is FRIDAY!!!!)
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?
That's funny, Canada does the same And, I lived in another 2 countries that promoted the same...
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.
thanks for the comments Bhagi khatbama, dParis, marinaHigh Tennis, Summo, ollinger, Mongolmike, r2473, rommil, Leed, tennis dude, BlueB, & acura9927.
best answer so far is dParis.
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.
I would say the United States maybe Las Vegas.
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
I agree with this sentiment - the intracountry variance far outweighs the intercountry variance.
is there lot of jobs for both Country? to be able to put some food on the table and roof on our heads.
Australia, in the big suburbial areas betters both, US and canada.
Denmark and parts of Germany outclass most .
The ideal choice would be a decent-size metro area with a leading university and a diverse economy in whatever country you live in. This would give your children a good exposure to culture and education while you would have a job market to find your proper niche and provide for the family's needs.
I'm not as familiar with the various Canadian metro areas to eliminate or endorse any community. In the U.S., here are a few that pop out to me, in no particular order:
Little Rock AR
please feel free to add more options if you care!
i guess every country has its own problem. its just that US right now have lots of drama going on. thats why Canada are leading on the polls question. i wish US wins.
True. I think having a resilient society is key and for that to be a possibility , the core of the energy sector needs to be renewed.
never been to canada, but some parts of the US has pretty places and with nice(also smart ) people. i vote for the US.
I have spent a lot of time in Denmark, and really like the Danish attitude. Outside of the weather, it is a nice place to live.
I could not imagine living in Germany. Culturally, it is too somber and serious for me. I much prefer the Danish easy-going attitude and sense of humour.
My main knowledge of Canada is based upon my experiences at the airport in Montreal. I found Canada to be airportish. San Diego seems like a good place to raise a family in the United States.
Seattle? I live here, so many people want to leave just no money to do so.
Interesting. What are you basing this on? Which societies do you identify as "resilient", how did they renew the core of their energy sector and how did this renewal directly improve the resiliency of their society? Examples?
Canada if you don't mind the cold, the health care is better and a college education is a lot cheaper.
Germany , Denmark ,Sweden to just name a few.. heard of them and what they do?
There has been loads written about their strategic planning and advanced methods of creating what i spoke of.
two more days till the post ends.
Best place to live and raise a family is where you can live comfortably, is safe, is interesting, has some surmountable challenges, and your peers are close at hand.
Could be in NewFoundland, could be in Manhattan, could be in Detroit, or could be in Fiji.
A lot of people at my work say Switerland 1st hand. They think money, maids, butlers, castles. No pollution from factories.
The Canucks rank higher in best place to live in new survey vs. the US.
Neither are in the top 5 though.
Depends on what you want. If you want economic freedom(that is freedom and opportunity to succeed, Hong Kong, Aus, NZ, Switzerland.
If you want government handouts, somewhere else.
Is the source you post neutral?
i.e. does it prefer 'economic freedom' or 'government handouts'?
good comments. seems like canada is leading and is top 6 and US rank#12. but from what ive heard Canada is so expensive to live. their mortgages is too high.
Heritage is a conservative site.
Anywhere but Brazil.
You should raise your children in either India or China where the flexible labour laws will have your kids contributing productively to society well before their tenth birthday unlike in other countries where they do nothing but play tennis and drink beer well into their twenties.
Whilst I would agree, I've never seen maids, butlers or castles in Switzerland.
The chocolate alone makes it worth living there.
you never saw castles in Switzerland? Not even Castle Chillon on Lake Geneva?
anyway, come to Australia, mate. No castles, though, sorry..
Yes, I've had a beer or two sitting by the lake looking at Chateau Chillon on a few warm summer nights...
it's nice, but by "castle" standards quite modest - and it's a museum.
If you're looking for castles, I would look in France, England and Scotland. The drawback of course being that Tennis season in the UK is what, 2 weeks?
Australia would be definitely worth considering for the climate alone.
I would consider Lausanne, despite the human rights violations.
i repeat for they have a statistical well rounded method and a gauge that seems reasoned and true to what makes a place/country nice to live in.
