LaSalle is the second-most romantic city in Canada: survey

You might know LaSalle best for its shopping malls and the condo towers that seem to have sprung up from out of nowhere around them.

But according to Amazon Canada, the borough is a hotbed of romance.

An annual survey done for the e-commerce company has ranked LaSalle the second most romantic city in all of Canada.

Victoria, B.C. ranked number one, for the seventh year in a row. Last year, LaSalle ranked 11th.

No other Quebec cities made the top 20 list — in fact, no city east of the Quebec-Ontario border did. The other Quebec location to make the Top 20 list last year, 14th-place LaPrairie, didn't make the list this year.

Amazon's list is based strictly on sales data from last year, on purchases of things like romance novels, romantic comedies, books on relationships, jewelry and "sexual wellness" products.

Here's the list:

1. Victoria, B.C.
2. LaSalle, Que.
3. Fort McMurray, Alta.
4. North Vancouver, B.C.
5. Spruce Grove, Alta.
6. Whitehorse, Yukon
7. Kelowna, B.C.
8. Sherwood Park, Alta.
