Canada without doubt.

1. Canada is USA #2 (Looks almost like the U.S. where there are four seasons)
2. Canada is bilingual (French and English)
3. Canada has amazing cities, as well as very diverse.
4. All big cities offer hotter summers than anywhere in Germany, as well as more sunshine annually.
5. Lower taxes
6. Location in North America and being north of the greatest country in the world.
7. Houses, cars, etc. are bigger typical like America
8. Canadians are much friendlier
9. Canada has Quebec and Ontario

Canada is very similar to the U.S., whether they like it or not. They have a pretty good education system and of course everyone knows that their healthcare is one of the better in the world, regardless of the socialist underpinnings of the whole system.

Germany. Canada has good cities but Germany has Berlin, Hamburg, Munich, Cologne, Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Dusseldorf, Dortmund, Bremen, Dresden, Leipzig, Hanover and plenty more great cities, there are around 80 cities in Germany with a population of over 100,000. It has a better economy. You are close to other great European countries and cities. And it also has a great football culture which helps for my preferences!

Germany seems to be more exciting as paull805 described, the problem is they are not immigrant friendly (to those outside the EU) like Canada is. If you're lucky enough to make it in, you'll also need to love German culture, customs, and language to really fit in. I imagine it's easier to adapt in Canada.

Nearly all Canadians are proud of being similar to the U.S., however some might get annoyed with their politics. There are minor difference between US and Canada.

Well, you know. The grass is always greener on the other side...Anyway, I say:

Germany. Bigger, much better location and much closer to other exciting countries. Canada is too rural, small population, not much going on there. At least not as much as in Europe and Germany. Could come up with a couple of more things.

Dunno, I thought this has already been discussed..
