Trail Quidi Vidi Batter Johnson Geo Centre In Conclusion... Overall, i think the most suitable geographic region for me would be The West Coast, specifically Edmonton in particular. I chose that place because they're so many options there and it’s a developing city and they're so many job opportunities & the climate is a little cooler than Mississauga's in particularly which is good- meaning less harsh winters and summers. Also, another bonus would be living so close to Canada's biggest mall! As well, the real estate is still very cheap meaning soon it'll go very high in price and I will make a lot of money if I choose to sell in the future! I think urban is a better fit for me because I like to be close to things, and I tend to have lots of luxuries that other people would be fine without that would be hard for me to get in a rural society.
