Well, if you're just looking for a city of about 50 thousand in Ontario (since Maritimes, Quebec and the West are out), there are many. Belleville sounds like it'd suit you nicely, and Kingston can be quite lovely, although it's a little larger, about 100K. Peterborough could work, as could Timmins, Orangeville, and a few other places I could think of. Chatham's nice, and the weather is pretty good there.

Niagara has everything you want. Great weather,{for Canada} a few small cities, Niagara Falls, Welland, Ft. Erie and many other smaller towns. Housing costs are reasonable, shopping is excellent, the culture is diverse, though mostly Eruo. Lots of sports amd other recreation type activities. Great and beautiful geography.

Mostly Euro? Wouldn't the culture be mostly "Americano"?

I think he means it's "diverse" in that it's multicultural, but mostly multicultural from European and European derived cultures, rather than Asian, African, or Carribean ones. So lot's of Italians and Poles, but fewer Chinese of Persians, say.

Myself included, lol. I would rather be in a cold region and in a small country like town.

Been searching some areas in Ontario Canada, like Belleville, Tyendinaga, Napanee, Tweed, Plainfield and St. Catherines. Actually by the way those towns seen online, it seems very nice, beautiful and heard alot of good things about them. Even, I wouldn't mind going and living there.

Reading everyone's post of your town St. Johns. I would also agree, it would get very boring there, even by the look on the map also. People drinks, smokes, one-night stands there ...it's bad as my town in U.S. Yeah, definitely... anywhere but, there would be alot better for you.

Canada has stayed pretty much the same over the years- It still has a few rich clans that quietly run the place...It still has that colonial quality of being run like a private estate...opportunity is not as abundant as they lead you to believe. If I would have known what an oppressive and controlled nation it was- I would have gone state side 40 years ago and reached my full potential as a person.

Bitter you say? Yes- It's a secure and safe nation but with that security you give up most of your real freedom. Sorry Canada...I love you but like being disappointed in a wife- I could have done better without you.

You're not seriously suggesting "your full potential as a person" is dependant upon your location are you?

That's funny because I am an American wanting to move to Canada. Guess the grass is always greener, eh?
