I lived here all my life, it's a nice city to live in if you like winter and four seasons. Lots of entertainment, people from many ethnicities, food variety is easy to find. The city has nice burroughs that each have their personality, and the downtown doesn't hollow out at night and weekends like many other north-american cities. I do agree that taxes are hight and healthcare is difficult, finding doctors is very hard, and the winter can really feel like it's taking forever to leave! However the pace of life in general is pleasant and the people are nice so in my opinion it compares very well to other cities of its size.

Brutally cold and snowy winters, suprisingly hot and humid summers. Fall and spring are nice.

Healthcare system is atrocious. Government is corrupt. Highest taxes in Canada yet the worst infrastructure and health services of any of the major provinces.

It is a fun and charming city. But from a quality of life standpoint, it's not great.

It's true, our health institutions have a long waiting period in emergency services since we were the last province in Canada in restructuring health services when most other provinces commenced in 1990's.
But we now have a remarkable tiered-system;(starting at the bottom) doctor's office or clinic (not enough general practitioners-because other specialties bring more tax money to the government), next inline is the Emergency departments and finally the new University Hospitals.
