thunder bay: 125,000
I was going to say, Minneapolis is larger than Vancouver and almost the size of Montreal. There is no problem getting immigrants and refugees to stay here because it offers the opportunities and resources of a major city. More comparable cities would be Duluth and Fargo. Fargo gets refugees and holds on to them because it has economic opportunity, Duluth doesn't.
