Vancouver and Toronto are the most expensive cities in Canada to live in. If you want to buy an apartment or a house in Vancouver, it will cost you a lot of money. For a example, the apartment with one bedroom in Burnaby, Great Vancouver area, my friend bought for $550,000 a few years ago. The real estate in London is much cheaper. However, the car insurance in Ontario is more expensive than in British Columbia. The same thing is many squirrels and different kinds of birds that I like and even try to feed them on my balcony. In short, every city has its own pros and cons, and only we themselves can decide what we want for our life,what we can accept, and what we can sacrifice with. Every place has its own beauty, magnificence, and interesting history.
There is a very good educational institution called University of Western Ontario that is one of the top universities in Canada and has a good reputation around the world . Ivey Business School of Western University is one of the top business school in the world according to rankings from Businessweek, Financial Times, and QS Top MBA. Also, one of the largest colleges in Ontario is Fanshawe College located in London. I would say the equivalent in British Columbia is British Columbia Institute of Technology where I studied. If you have any questions regarding to London or Vancouver, please ask me. I will be happy to answer them if I can.
And, of course, I would like to share photos the city of London to give you an idea what it is about in summer, fall, and winter times. In winter the city seems a little dark because of the snow, but it is not every day :)
