Re: “Saying farewell to Nova Scotia for a reason

My wife and I moved to BC over a year ago because there was no chance of starting a career in her profession without moving to a rural setting for 3mo government contracts in hopes you land a permanent position. With a family and my career to also think about, moving around like such is not in the cards. We are in our early 30's, and family and friends are all there. However, since moving to BC it is WAY more affordable. Utilities are more than 50% less, urban infrastructure is proactive and well planned out, and honestly an incredibly beautiful province. Yeah you are close to the ocean in Nova Scotia, but living an unaffordable life to look at a body of water is pretty meaningless really. We are 4 hours from the coast, and live in the Okanagan. This year we went to the beach on Easter weekend because it was 31 degrees, it does not get extreme weather, has 4 seasons, and you can enjoy an outdoor lifestyle just by living here. It has no industry so unless you have jobs its not somewhere I recommend moving, but HEY if you are a highly educated individual and working a minimum wage job ya might as well come enjoy life vs stress over it. Halifax by Design... you can certainly take credit for the 4700+ people moving away, and for the increasing business developments moving out of the city core!!! Such a dysfunctional city :(

Oh yeah... employers of the private sector in NS want you work you to the bone and expect you to do it for peanuts. If you are lucky to score a government job, then you can sit on your ass and fuck the dog until you retire because the unions force you to be compliant and avoid being proactive or go the extra mile. Probably why everything takes an eternity to get done around there :)
