Re: “Saying farewell to Nova Scotia for a reason

I agree with most things said about Alberta living not being all it's cracked up to be. We tried it and couldnt stomach the illegal housing where you cannot even speak in a regular voice without your downstairs neighbor freaking out at you and having a tantrum because the house is not meant to squish several tenants in it without proper facilities and sound proofing. You pay BC prices for a ghetto shanty. Open racism is indeed a problem there. Our experience was in Red Deer, I cannot say anything about Calgary or Edmonton or the more modern minded areas.

I also agree with what is said about Nova Scotia. We live in the Truro area, a truly horrible town filled with underage single mothers, drug addicts, alcoholics, gamblers, petty criminals, the highly uneducated (functional illiterates) and too many elderly. Town council is a nightmare that kills any all all progress that tries to rear its head. There is not even a transit service here. Finding a physician that didnt get their degree from their home printer or a cracker jack box is impossible. Never mind finding one that speaks proper, understandable english.

The worst part of the province that we are currently experiencing is the way employers treat the employees. Because they know work is hard to come by and bills need to be paid, they pay like garbage and work you to death, expecting cadillac results on a beater pay. Our employer makes the choice to close up due to weather and refuses to pay us for the day. Their choice not ours but we get penalized for it. They treat women here with extreme disrespect and pay us far less then men in the same job, often speaking inappropriately and berating and talking down to us. Anywhere else I have ever been would have resulted in legal action hands down. But we take it and get ill with stress because being hungry and homeless is not an option. The government doesnt protect workers here, they dont give a damn and side with employers who are downright evil here.

Its a shitty province to live, dont move here and make that mistake like we did. Go west or go to Ontario where its far better all around. If we didnt realize how long our house will sit on the market (2+ years in a good area too) we would be gone tomorrow. Good luck finding another sucker to pay the $3120/year property tax bill for streets that are paved half a day after a storm if we are lucky, no streetlights and no reason to pay more then we paid in Toronto for heaven's sake.

I look at slavery throughout history and ask myself what the difference is and I dont see any.

Re: “Ariel comes to life

What an odd but unique idea! I would have loved to see this when I was a little girl!
