A few people have just left work to get stuff from home. The is an immediate evacuation order for a few neighbourhoods near the Elbow River. Two years ago around this time our basement was flooded. We will look forward to the golf ball hail next month.

Calgary is the most bland city on Earth. Definitely not what I'd be looking for as someone in your 20s.

All the forms, caselaw etc. are totally different. Even the tax year is different. Forms of corporation, residency for tax purposes, tax shelters, how payroll taxes work, you name it. Obviously any accountant would understand the basic principles but the system is entirely different.

Ever filled in a T2? Another major difference is the GIFI system. Federal/provincial. Separate security commissions, etc.

I didn't say he'd struggle to find work, I said he'd need training.
