There's only one city in the U.S I'd live, San Francisco. Since you're from L.A you probably hate it there, so I guess that doesn't help.

Oh, fwiw, I think something like 72 or 73% of Canadians don't speak French, so you wouldn't be alone, especially in BC. I love Toronto, but when we move again it'll likely be back to the west coast. I have friends in the BC interior and it's pretty amazing.

My friend who has lived in Montreal for like 10 years told me if you don't speak French and you drive around in the Quebec country side, they will hate you, even if you are a European Canadian, and i am Chinese, so i wonder what would happen to me

That's why you avoid the Quebec countryside.

Seriously?

Do you really have a room for rent? how big, what's your location, etc? I'm honestly interested.

I found that folks in Quebec didnt like the Anglophones (english speaking..) b/c they spoke English...some folks in Montreal (the older generation) claim to not even speak English in our company office..personally I think they refuse to speak English...however Montreal is a party place..it's like going to Europe but you are in Canada...

San Diego. I went there twice for training with the US Navy and I loved it. If I could, I would move there. Plus it is not too far from LA (assuming you will have family staying in LA).

Vancouver BC is my favorite city by far in N.A. but Portland and Seattle are great alternatives if you want to remain a US citizen and pretend you're in Vancouver.

Nor do you lose (eliminate) the obligation to pay US income taxes.
