    I was reading through an older thread comparing U.S. v. Canada and came across your post:

    "Canada is a better place to live if you are a working class or middle class person raising kids (i.e. good for people whose household income is less than $125K).

    The US is a better place to live if you are a young and upwardly mobile person (i.e. yuppie making more than $125K) or wealthy (assets more than $1M)."

    I was surprised to see it, because it crystalized my own impressions of life in Canada vs. America before I'd even realized it. You are absolutely correct in that the U.S. is fantastic if you're the sort of hyper-ambitious individualist seeking to make as much of themselves and their earning potential as possible, whereas Canadians seem more content to eke out a comfortable living.

    It strikes me as increasingly difficult to remain the middle class in America, whereas I do not have this impression of Canada, and I wonder if you'd agree.

    Again, great post!
