Yes, Vancouver can be a very pleasant place to live. No doubt about it.

Well, with you being an immigrant from Europe and only having been in Canada for something like a year? (is that correct?) you have no loyalties yet, you haven't put down roots yet and if you don't have family or dependents or other impediments here it would be easy for you to move some place else at this stage. Just like when you moved from Europe to Canada, right?

If you aren't satisfied with the money you're earning in Canada and money is what's most important to you then you probably should move to somewhere else more lucrative before you start to get tied down here. Now that you've become a citizen of Canada if you find that a move to some other place doesn't prove satisfactory then at least you know you can come back to Canada as a last resort if you need to in a pinch. So, I think if you aren't happy here and can make a move to somewhere else then you certainly should go for it.

Speaking for myself, if given the opportunity to immigrate to Europe or USA I would not do it. I've visited USA extensively and although I enjoy visiting I would under no circumstances ever want to live there. I haven't visited Europe yet, would love to take a long visit, but I already know enough about it to know that is a part of the world that I wouldn't want to live permanently.

Now if I was really a lot younger, didn't have family ties and attachment and loyalty to Canada and a deep love and appreciation of the environment I have here, then I might consider moving to New Zealand. Money has never been a driving force for me so I wouldn't be moving there for money. But I'd still want to visit there first before making that final decision.

I'd move to the USA in a heartbeat given the opportunity. My dream is to live in Honolulu, Miami or LA permanently one day... too bad it will just remain a pipe dream for me I know I'll never be 100% be truly happy in Canada but I don't really have any other option so...

I would immigrate to America in a split second but it definitely is hard. Actually I am in the process, hopefully it will work out

Quebec will always be home, and I am devoted to it. If I had to leave I would live in the U.S. without any doubt. The US is how English Canada should be.

I wouldn't rule out the possibility of living elsewhere since I have already lived in two different countries. But there is nothing about Canada specifically that I can't stand to the extent that I want to leave above all else. I don't see myself ever giving up my citizenship.
