I like Calgary, but Alberta is too much like Texas for my tastes. I just considered there because it is booming and has a stable job market with high pay.
My first place I liked was Winnipeg until I saw how cold it got. Vancouver is extremely expensive. And my grandfather told me that Nova Scotia is too cold and wet.
So I guess Calgary is probably the best choice.

You might like Winnipeg if at first. It's a sleepy city with not much to do. The winters are horrible so you are correct. Housing may be more affordable than others. Native indians are in abundance with poor quality of life for most. Alcoholism and inner city depression is huge but you could live somewhere near the perimeter with a nice middle class lifestyle, buy a boat and go fishing.

Now, if the OP doesn't like cold climates then perhaps Winnipeg isn't for you, but I assure you that regardless, Winnipeg is a great city. We also have really warm temperature. Some years, it can go down to -40 and up to +40. I don't know very many other places that have an 80 degree temperature span.
