For 5 years I have toyed with the idea of moving to Canada from the UK.
3 main reasons:
1) We need to move house now and what we can get for our money in the UK compared to Canada is a massive difference (Not taking about Vancouver BC but Nova Scotia)
2) UK is just so cramped. We drive to the "beach" we sit in traffic for 2 hours there. Fight for a patch of sand. Sit in traffic for 2 hours to get home. Traffic jams and cramped living almsot everywhere. I want more space.
Over 60m in our small land and it's going to get worse. Projecting 70M+ by 2050. What tha'ts going to be like I have no idea.
3) We *THINK* our children will have abetter quality of life over there as to that they will have in the UK.
Weather? I am not a lover of really hot weather and love the seasons. Cold/snow I like to a degree. So the Wx isn't a factor.
Now this isn't one of those "jump out of bed with a great idea plans" We have looked into it for 5 years. Going for a holiday next year. Talked to a few expats etc...weighed it up for 2 years. Shall we? Shan't we? Everything seems to come up on the side of taking the chance and giving it ago.
We are now at the point of actually putting the wheels into motion...We have to do it soon or it's going to be too late.
Anyone in Nova Scotia? Anyone form the UK live or lived in Canada?
What I need to know is the BAD....it can't all be "a bed or roses" and we need to know what the bad is so we can take it all into consideration.
