I didn't think you could drive to and from 'the island'.

Is it possible for you to let me know if it is a good place to buy a hoiliday home?

My wife and I are thinking a place in PEI or even a cabin in Vancouver.
Nah, not offended as I live somewhere even more remote! PEI is connected to NB by the Confederation Bridge. Or there is a ferry to NS. To drive to PEI from Halifax is about 4 hrsish & there is a small airport at Charlottetown.

Is it a good place to buy a holiday home? Well if you like beaches, lobster and faintly South Devon like countryside then yes. It gets busy in the summer and is dead (and very snowy) in the winter. Property seems ridiculously cheap when I last looked on mls.

At the very beginning we were tempted even though SEEMS remote ! I really liked the idea of running a B & B around the Bay of Fundy so that all my guests would be impressed with the whale watching etc. Not much there for the kids though I feel, could be wrong.

"EEEEwwwww"

Have to say I was thinking the same :scared:

Yuk I know where I'd choose to live in that case

On the other hand I hear Winnipeg can be a tad chilly so if you hide from the bogeymonster you may tolerate Toronto conditions better

On the tourism side and being more helpful I would definitely say Ontario's likely to be a better place to try setting up a B&B. Winnipeg would be off the beaten track for many a tourist, whereas Ontario's got all the sights & definitely a tourist hotspot.

I don't think they can legally synthesize. It's an interesting legal battle because the argument of the PMU producers is that random elements of their product, dirt to you and me, cannot be accurately reproduced in a laboratory and therefore synthetics are not equivalent. The demand is decline because of publicity about the conditions in Manitoba, it seems that lots of women would rather not have the drug than support the conditions of production.

All sounds to be a bit of a 'mare to me.

It looks like the nasty kings castle in Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang

I'm really after up upand running B&B.

When you see a property you like do you need to add GST on the price. Or do you pay what you see?

GST is only on new houses. I suppose that, if you bought the B&B as a business with no residential element, you might get into GST but I don't think you'd want to do that.
