MoneySense magazine has recently published their annual best places to live in Canada issue.  Ottawa ended up being number 1 this year from judging on house prices, environment, and other categories.  I found the Ottawa Citizen article on the survey entertaining.  I particularly like the quote:  “It was to some degree a triumph of mediocrity, but it was consistent mediocrity,” said Ian McGugan, editor of MoneySense magazine.

Good ole Ottawa, nothing too exciting going on, but a nice place to live.  Hopefully some new businesses (non-Government, perhaps non-Nortel high tech?) can inject some life into this place.
