Buying litecoin

Assuming that desktop mining is over for litecoin. instead of buying an ASIC Machine, do i just buy litecoin? I would be holding long term. Would anyone recommend a website geared for North America (CAD) to purchasing lite coin?

any exchange that allows a USD transaction and sells litecoin will sell you litecoins in the US…buy them on their server and send them to your personal wallet…coinsbank sells litecoin using debit cards and is based in the UK but you can download a core wallet at and have them sent there to your personal pc…also coinbase is based in California…Bittrex in Seattle only deals in crypto and does not sell for dollars…also check out shapeshift all US based except coinsbank…but like I said it does not matter where you buy your coin…only that you receive them in your personal wallet
