City’s romantic side lands on top 10 list

When it comes to romance, Kelowna is allegedly one of the best Canadian cities to find it.

Amazon.ca released a report on the Top 20 romantic cities in Canada, placing this city eighth on the annual ranking.

Victoria took top spot, Guelph, Ont., placed second, while Calgary took the third spot.

Next up was Saskatoon, Sask., Oakville, Ont., Regina, Sask. Kingston, Ont., Kelowna , Nepean, Ont., and Burlington, Ont.

The final cities in the Top 20 were Winnipeg, Man.Richmond Hill, Ont., and Edmonton, Alta., followed by three Ontario cities—London, Kitchener and St. Catharines -- then Burnaby, B.C., Thunder Bay, Ont., Richmond, B.C., and Ottawa.

The online retailer says the list is based on its sales data of romance novels, sex and relationship books, romantic comedy DVDs and CDs by Canadian crooner Michael Buble since Jan. 1 on a per capita basis in cities with more than 100,000 residents.
