Why would living in Canada be boring as we have most of the sports and activities you'd find stateside, some may want to move to the USA for increased job or money prospects, or some weather weenies get a bit cold in the winter and rather than wear appropriate clothing they just want to move to Florida.
Canada is a great country and none of the people i know are expressing any desire to move to the USA.

That may be so jambo101, but let's not deny that there are plenty of Canadians right here on C-D who would absolutely move south if given the (legal) opportunity, myself included. All the supporting reasons have already been covered in this other (now closed) thread, though:

No doubt many would like to move to the USA but my response was more directed at amigago's assertion that Canada was boring,if you find Canada boring i'm not sure what you are expecting to find in the USA thats all of a sudden going to make your life exciting.

There are also plenty of Americans who would move to Canada if given the opportunity. I'd love to live in Quebec if given the chance, but my occupation doesn't fall into what Canadian immigration is looking for, and I'm not sure I'd want to uproot myself again (I'm SICK of moving).

Yeah, the two countries are VERY similar. Anything you can find in the USA you can find in Canada (except tropical weather).

I agree with that. Many Americans on this forum claim themselves how much they think Canada and the US are similar. A post from an American saying that Canada is boring doesn't make much sense.

I'm self employed and because of my wife's career that can take her all over the world we have designed it so I'll be working from home. My business will stay based in Canada since I won't be able to work down in Tennessee from day one.

It really does depend on if you're working for a company or striking out on your own. Being self employed has been the best for both of us but I do understand that doesn't work for everybody. Some months are tough and you're playing spin the wheel when paying bills but that's anywhere in the world these days it seems.
