At least with respect to the average temperature in Ottawa, I see this as a definite reason to move north - it isn't so stinking hot up here.

For most of the rest of the points, I agree.

Montana (where I live) is about the same as Ottowa -- temperature wise ... so that wouldn't be a good reason for me to move north. Most of my family lives in BC some expatriots, others born there. Sisters, brothers, mom and lots neices and nephews ... spread out from Kelowna to Tatla, Vancouver to Bowser. I am sorely tempted to move back closer to them!

It's an interesting topic, but doesn't mention a whole lot about Canada itself, rather it focuses more on American history. Maybe I'm dumb (which is highly likely) or this was a pretty poorly written article? Ignore me.

The article was written specifically for Americans, skewed toward those disspirited, disappointed US voters who thought (however seriously or not) of leaving after the November elections. About leaving to go to Canada, which has a reputation of being more progressive, more liberal, etc. The author I think, was trying to give the movers and shakers a reason to stay and shake the US, rather than give up and Move to Canada. I didn't think it was the greatest article in the world, just an interesting list of pretty good reason to stay and try to make the USofA a better place for ALL people to live. Thanks for your comment, though.
