Did not know of Oakville but one drive through it was enough. Its a great place in my opinion. my wife and I fell in love with it immediately.

Has fast access to downtown Toronto.
Great neighbourhoods and schooling.
Though GTA is generally safe this area felt really safe.
Great lakeshore and High Street.
Large expat community and has pubs!

Could go on and on......though again this is just my opinion....its something that felt right for us. In fact liked it so much we have jumped the gun and already bought a place even though have not heard anything re our application from CHC!


Hi, yes many thanks for the input. I wholehartely agree with you, this i a wonderful place. Did you go to Coronation Park when you visited? If you didnt, check it out when you get here. Wonderful relaxing place, just the right spot for a bar b q, and many do!.. Check out some pics ive got online if you want

Proper bods and tets, or stuff that has been gassed and frozen to death?

I got seriously peed off in Ottawa when I found a place selling imported hand-pulled London Pride, and then found that it was chilled to buggery. Ruined it.

no its the proper stuff although it is stronger 4.5% compared to the english 3.9%. apparantly labatts who distribute it say they wouldnt be able to sell it to the canadian public if it wasnt made stronger.

they also sell john smiths creamflow in the abbey arms

I agree about jazz, although the general ambiance is nice, in an Oakville sort of way.

Do you know the Wedlakes, BTW?
