The April 2013 issue of Moneysense magazine contains its well-known annual ranking of the best places to live in Canada. Quality of life is measured in 200 cities across the country.
This year, London finished 4th in the Top Ten large cities in Canada category, behind Calgary, Ottawa and Edmonton, and ahead of Winnipeg. Fourth across the country! That’s great news.
But when the categories are examined and the check marks counted, we see that London does NOT get a check mark for affordable housing. In fact, NONE of the top ten large cities get a check mark for affordable housing.
So is a city great where there is a lack of affordable housing?
