Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal are among some of the most popular places to live in work in Canada. Each city has a unique energy made up of its culture, tourism scene, and nightlife. But just because they are popular, doesn't mean they're the best.
One of Canada's big banks, BMO, put out a ranking of the best cities to work and live in and those major cities didn't even make the top 10.
BMO ranked 20 major cities, plus Prince Edward Island, based on the cost of buying a house or renting, tax rates, the job market and unemployment rate, and the average income of the city.
The rankings don't factor in culture, things to do, or other factors that make up the vibe of a city, but when it comes to practical things like affording to live or work somewhere, this is how the results were.
In the top five were Ottawa, Quebec, Hamilton, Edmonton, and Windsor. Out of the 21 places ranked, a third of them were in Ontario, with three of those making the top 10. Toronto, however, was not one of them.
Toronto did exceedingly terrible being ranked 19th, with Vancouver doing only marginally better at 17th, and Montreal coming so close to the top in 11th place. The low rankings are most likely largely based on the cities' insane housing markets.
According to the hearing documents, another patient thought she'd only given consent to her voice being used on Dr. Jugenburg's Snapchat videos following multiple procedures with the surgeon. However, the College learned that her before-and-after photos of breast augmentation, tummy tuck, and liposuction were posted twice on his social media.
In addition to this, the documents make note of the extensive use of surveillance cameras throughout his practice without adequate signage.
The College is suspending Dr. Jugenburg's license for six months — at his request, he will have 30 days to deal with tasks at his clinic before the suspension begins. He will also have to pay the College a total of $31,110.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention had updated its guidelines on the same day, outlining what vaccinated and unvaccinated Americans can do safely with and without masks.
For the most part, fully vaccinated people in the country will now be allowed to resume normal activities without masks or physical distancing. This is with the exception of places like businesses and workplaces that fall under specific health regulations.
This was made possible by the extraordinary success we’ve had in vaccinating so many Americans, so quickly. https://t.co/gTwM6Tp7lF
Biden said in another tweet that these amended guidelines were "made possible by the extraordinary success we've had in vaccinating so many Americans, so quickly." In Canada, there are currently no health orders that draw a distinction between vaccinated and unvaccinated Canadians.
