That's two very different questions in one. Confused

I prefer Roxy, although they're nothing to do with Canterbury.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

Camel, but I don't think the two bands are particularly similar to need comparing.

How are Roxy Music semi-Canterbury?
Phil Manz was in Quiet Sun and Country Life has a mild Canterbury flavour.

Neither band had anything whatsoever to do with the Canterbury scene initially. 

Camel acquired several ex-members of Caravan and there was some interaction with others who came fiom the Canterbury scene outside the band as well, so there were some influences after Moonmadness (Down on the Farm could have been a Caravan song more easily than a Camel one), but Camel are not a Canterbury band.

Roxy Music are totally unconnected with the Canterbury scene.

To answer the question, I like some Roxy Music. I love (almost) all Camel.

No contest for me - Camel by a country mile.  This is not to say I dislike Roxy, because I don't - I actually have more of their album's than Camel (probably because Camel is almost non-existent where I live).

I also love Roxy but I have to go with Camel.
(And even though Manzanera was in Quiet Sun I don't really see much of a  Canterbury connection...though I'm going to listen to Country Life to see this 'mild Canterbury' thing)

I've heard some roxy but I don't think I like em. Kinda sh*te but I maybe wrong 😎
All I like is prog related bands beginning late 60's/early 70's. Their music from 1968 - 83 has the composition and sound which will never be beaten. Perfect blend of jazz, classical, folk and rock.
