We’re Number 2!

Don’t expect the city to “try harder” though as the old Avis commercial used to say.

According a survey published in the May issue of MoneySense magazine Victoria ranks second overall among 154 metropolitan Canadian cities as the best place to live. Somewhat amazing considering the average home price is getting close to half a million dollars. Ottawa, where by comparison the average home price is a paltry $250,000, was number one.

p.s. The video is the beach just down from where we live. It’s also a bird sanctuary, as you can tell.
