Almost all of us in the Kweeb are in the lobster pot, anglos because those of us sadsacks that chose to stay have our heels dug in with pitchforks in hand, and francos because they don't know how to ask for "hold the pickles" on their Big Macs elsewhere in North America.
So it might be logical to consider moving elsewhere but we know we never will.
Anyway just for the purpose of daydreaming, this year's median-multiple report came out with a few suggestions on places where you'd be less-badly-shafted for your rent-mortgage costs versus what you earn.
Montreal's median-multiple is unchanged from last year at 5.1.
That means that it you took the entire median household income and put every cent on it towards the median price of a home in Montreal, it would take 5.1 years to pay off.
Last year the Demographia median multiple report noted that our median household earnings was $54,700 and the median home cost $281,700, resulting in the same 5.1 result, so nothing has changed.
If you want to get richer than you already are, here's some places to consider moving to and to stay away from:
Last year I interviewed one of the authors and he suggested that if Montreal wants to give citizens a better deal, it should allow more construction in certain areas outside of Montreal.
If you can get it together to move someone, particularly the USA, these are the places where you're most likely to prosper.
