    It is suggested you state who developed this website..for your own credibility. Where do you live and your background.

    You have appropriate credited all your news sources so no problems in taking in news feeds.

    Moving along: I’ve lived and worked in Toronto, Vancouver and now Calgary.

    My bet is: Toronto. It is well rounded in terms of liveability and close to the U.S. border with major local public and international transportation options, University of Toronto and University of Waterloo just 100 kms. west of Toronto (I grew up in Waterloo..) with strengths in artificial intelligence, technology hubs where talent resides. The rental market in Metro Toronto is getting tougher but housing options possible and not as expensive as Vancouver.

    I find it strange that most people in these news articles, are focusing on U.S. cities as top contenders. Guess what: Bezos will save a ton of corporate money because of our Canadian health care system: Amazon doesn’t have to pay as much to fund employee health care benefits for 50,000 employees….and don’t forget their families!!

    As for Calgary, it’s a tougher sell with our colder winters…but yes, we have millions of unleased commercial office space because of the Canadian oil and gas economic slump. We are only 100 km. south from Canadian Rocky Mountains and national parks. (Banff, then drive 1/2 hr. to British Columbian border).

    My bet is… Toronto.
