I find this hard to believe. Vancouver is one of the most expensive places to live in the world (top 5 I believe). So how can the cost of living in New York City (which is also one of the most expensive places to live in the world) be 59% more than Winnipeg, but yet Vancouver only 6% more than Winnipeg?

Something is wrong with those numbers as they are likely not accurate.

the site says they aren't accurate...even asks people to enter numbers for various things on their evaluation list.

What are they taking into account? If it's simply sh1t like buying groceries, paying hydro bills, registering your kid for soccer, then yes, Vancouver isn't going to be that much more than Winnipeg. Now if you have to factor in tax, real estate, insurance etc. then it's totally flawed.

they are taking into account whatever numbers people decide to type in.

apparently the whole internet is built on trust.

Average house price in Vancouver is about $730k according to MoneySense magazine. I wonder how they're figuring this 6% on?
