Dear Westerner;
You all have a number of very nice qualities, and I am happy to have you here. But, I don't understand why some of you are here since you seem to hate it so much. Every day you complain about the rain, the temperature, lack of entertainment for your child, the driving conditions, our education system (even though your kid isn't in school yet) and our accents.

I am sure you miss your home and that the weather there is more what you are used to. I have lived in different provinces, so I can understand that.

But, what I have no patience for are the constant insinuations that Nova Scotians are inherently inferior to residents of other provinces. We aren't stupid. Just stop it. If anyone is stupid, it is the person who manages to get themselves stuck somewhere they didn't want to be and then proceeds to bitch constantly about the place they find themselves and the people by whom they are surrounded and then fails to understand why they are unable to develop relationships.
