In Newfoundland the air is even cleaner, if indeed that's possible, than NS and taxes are lower. Lowest infact, in Maritime/Atlantic Canada.

After living here for almost 2 years, here is what I feel.

1. If you get a job you like, your life can be very nice here. If not, it is difficult to move as the opportunities are much less than big cities can give.
2. Depending on your taste, if you like theatres in big cities like London, New York or even Toronto, the productions here are not comparable. You can still see some small shows, but not Les Mis or Phantom of the Opera. Big stars never come here for a touring promotion.
3. The weather is way better than London, sunny, blue sky most of the time, even in winter. Yes, there is more snow here, but hey, how often are you outside in the winter? Half an hour a day perhaps. Put on a Canadian coat, it is not a big deal. Maybe you need to plow your driveway, but 5-6 times a winter I would say. It only costs $25 to get somebody to plow for you.
4. Nova Scotia is Canadian's Ocean playground. I love the slogan. Have you ever driven on a beach? If not, come to Nova Scotia, you can drive on it for miles. Many people own a boat. Yes, even those people who just earn regular salary. Cruise around in the sunny summer time. It is a joy.
5. Tax is higher than most provinces, but you are paying quality Oxygen and water here rather than CO2 and pollution.
6. The grocery is higher than big cities like London, Vancouver or Toronto, but the cheaper properties can give you much better quality of life here than living in those cities.
7. Hardly any traffic here. You have an extra hour of life every day here than living in big cities.
8. Many artists live here. Driving along the coastline or walking around those coastal trails, you will see why it attracts so many artists.


I'm just curious, How often do you go outside in winter?? What a strange thing to say. I go outside everyday, several times a day, I work?? What if someone works outside? Vey odd! Where did you find the statistics that state that on average people spend 30 minutes outside every day during the winter?

I'm paying for higher quality air??? What the F???? I have never heard such a load of clap trap in all my life....The air quality here SUCKS especailly where I live....

In my almost 5 years here I have NEVER seen anyone driving on the beach!

Where do you live that the air quality SUCKS? Currently the air quality index for NS is 2. The second lowest on the index. And, after 45 years here I've seen lots of fools driving on beaches. ATV drivers are the worst offenders but there are some idiots in cars as well.

In the North of NS it SUCKS big time! and as far as people driving on the beach I have NEVER EVER seen it and we live right on top of a beach and for that matter I've never heard anyone talk about it either lol

Well, you have another forty years to observe. In the north your beaches are too small anyway. You should see the idiots on the east coast. And why is your air so different from mine on the ouskirts of HRM.
