I most certainly am making assumptions. I find it
impossible to think without doing so. As soon as

It's just a facsimile, and not a very good one.
There are all sorts of reasons that you might choose
to move to a certain place. Cultural factors are only
one of them. The weather and beutiful scenery are one
of the main reasons people choose southern BC over
other areas in Canada. If you had a thing for wheat
and very flat open spaces then Saskatchewan might
appeal to you better. :)
