I bet you can't spell Bobcaygeon either.
Oh, we can spell 'twat' well enough... and know the root meaning as well.

Default Re: where are most brits moving to and why.

Preference order:

1. Nova Scotia
2. New Brunswick
3. Ontario

Ultimately, it will be wherever I find a job first. If I don't, and PR comes through, it will be Nova Scotia.

Can't speak for everyone but I'm not emigrating for job prospects, I have friends and family in Toronto and have lived there off and on and love it. Wouldn't be emigrating if I couldn't live in south-west Ontario

NS - because thats where OH's job is. We love it though, it's beautiful. No great culture shock here for us either as we came from Scotland.

We had been to Ontario 3 times on vacation but over the last few years we researched as much as we could over the internet and were open to moving to most provinces. In the end, Nova Scotia got lucky

That's because it's only got 4 letters. I enjoy a nice root round there now and again
