Universal health care, healthy economy, safety, relatively few Bible-thumping Jesus freaks are all good reasons to haul your butt in Canada.

In Montréal you can get by speaking only english, however if you learn french you can move to Québec City, which is really booming right now with high pay jobs popping everywhere. Not that it's hard to find a job in Montréal anyway.

Health care has it's pluses and minus, it's free, but it takes longer to get treatment, sometimes. It's getting faster and more efficient now, though.

Gas is 50% more costly though.

As someone who spent time on both sides of the border, Canada is the nicer place to live and raise a family quietly. Just gotta learn the finer points of powershoveling in winter.
