Re: Working in Ottawa as new to the country

That is a weird one. If it is "Ottawa" referring to the geographical location, it isn't the Forbidden City, so there is probably something more going on with your company.

If your company is in...

Re: Has anyone moved from NS to another province? can't decide

We have been here coming up on 5 years now. I think the only thing that has stopped me getting completely bored is the fact that, for almost two of them, you couldn't do much no matter where you...

Re: Emma Raducanu!

Let us hope they don't start rolling her out like Michaela McCollum.

Re: Emma Raducanu!

Not just that... she seems to have become the focus for unhinged political ideologues to make their stupid, boring points yet again. Sad people can't just enjoy a fantastic victory, a great story and...

Re: Could I move to Atlantic Canada without quality of life DOWNGRADE?

Hard question to answer because it is up to you to define what is attractive about moving, for example, to Atlantic Canada, or anywhere in Canada. Just make sure it is a really good reason.

You...

Re: The Four months of not winter - 2020

That's funny. Yesterday was pretty humid here, today is blue sky, warm and no humidity at all.

Re: Dear Boris

It is a good point but I am not sure it is that simple.

Political parties seem to be very ideological these days, to the point of being unable to appreciate nuance, and I would suggest this is at...

Re: Is the whole of the UK now racist?

Isn't that more a function of historical reality and the demographic make up of the population? I am not sure you are suggesting this but I can't understand why anybody should have power based on any...

Re: Dear Boris

I like it.

There really needs to be something (I don't know what) done about the p*ss poor quality of people who stand for election. I am watching the NS elections and can't believe any of these...

Re: Dear Boris

:) Fair enough. Canada will likely be added to the green list soon anyway so I don't see what the fuss is about.

Boris, however, seems to be someone who wanted to become Prime Minister, rather...

Re: Where to live? Thoughts?

What are you fed up with in the UK? What is it you are afraid of losing exactly? And why does Canada solve these problems? If you don't have very specific answers for these questions, I would start...

Re: BC Gas Price

Mazda 2 is a great little car. My mother had one and it was a blast.

Re: Dear Boris

Erm... didn't we all leave the UK for various reasons? Why should the government of any given country care about people who are not resident there, citizens or not?

Re: Moving Back to UK from Canada- Any Recent Experiences?

In general, "rude", "ignorant", "*rsehole" and "progressive" come as a package, perhaps with "conceit" as the cherry on top.

Re: Considering move to Nova Scotia

If you have a decent amount of equity in your home, it may make sense. But do some very serious research on the housing market. There is a big debate whether this is an aberration (in which case some...

Re: Considering move to Nova Scotia

I will try to be as objective as I can as my experience here, for the things I want out of life, hasn't been that great.

The province is beautiful. Depends what you are into but it has nice...

Re: Buying a Car in the UK with Finance

Depends if you are going to buy or lease... I imagine dealers have good options for leasing, but the figures need to stack up. I never found that leasing would be more economical than buying a 3 year...

Re: Moving Back to UK from Canada- Any Recent Experiences?

Pro-con list I think. Actually write it out. I did that this last weekend and I have many pros (for the UK) and only a few cons (mostly things like the litter and dog crap that is everywhere, some of...

Re: Moving Back to UK from Canada- Any Recent Experiences?

I read the Guardian quite a lot (for a different perspective) and I genuinely wonder if most of their journalists, and a lot of the BTL commenters, have any joy in their lives. Yet the reality is...

Re: Trudeau

That's laying it on thick is it not? Trudeau made headlines with his sunny ways, it is 2015 and the fact he wasn't Trump. Now Biden is in he is an irrelevance. And, as far as I can tell, his...

Re: Investing back in the UK

Barring keeping a float for repairs, months of no rent etc. I would agree it is better to invest where you are tax resident. Only thing to keep an eye on is exchange rates, although there isn't much...
