To be able to take advantage of the lifestyle I wanted Canada to offer me makes it considerably more expensive than the UK. Day to day living is not greatly different, but if all I could attain here was a similar lifestyle, what would be the point of moving? I'm not interested in comparable survival, I want improvement and that costs $
