Cities ranked, but one left out

Port Moody omitted from magazine's list

Port Coquitlam now has bragging rights over Vancouver - at least according to one survey.

The Tri-Cities city beat out Vancouver and almost every other municipality in the province on MoneySense magazine's annual rankings of Canada's Best Places to Live.

The hometown of Terry Fox finished 33rd overall on the list, 23 places higher than Coquitlam and 19 spots ahead of Vancouver.

In total, 200 cities were on the list.

Only North Vancouver finished higher than PoCo in B.C., ranking at 21.

PoCo Mayor Greg Moore said he was pleased with the recognition.

"Everybody that lives in Port Coquitlam knows that we're the best place to live, so when a third party validates what we work hard towards . it's the validation that we're working on," he told The NOW.

I think the whole Tri-City area is pretty special as we have many of the things that Vancouver does with more reasonable housing prices. Port Moody should be at the top of the list as well.
