Nice palace!

We don't have a president in our country, only a king.
Anyway, this is the Royal Palace in Brussels, Belgium:

If its only Presidential Palaces allowed you might aswell count half the world out of this thread. There are just as many countries with a Royal Family as there is presidents.

I just assumed "president" just meant the leaders. Or the face of the nation

Hmm.... For Canada... Well, it can get a bit tricky. If you mean royal, then Buckingham Palace it is for us too.

However, Rideau Hall is the home of the country's Governor General:

And 24 Sussex Drive is the home of the Prime Minister:

It's no giant palace for our nation's highest elective (but hey, our current Prime Minister doesn't deserve anything too opulent! )

I don't think we need anything more than a house like this for a prime minister either, but I heard that 22 Sussex Drive is falling apart. I don't mind our taxes going to ensure that it's maintained properly.

In a way, it's nice that our leader is put up in a regular house instead of some palace. He/she should live somewhat like the rest of us do.
