Re: Another US school shooting

I thought Piers Morgan handled the issue extremely well on CNN yesterday.
Less guns, not more guns, is the only way to stop something like this from happening again.

Re: Help......Looking for a Babysitter in Bedford NS

Have a look on kijiji, as there are usually ads on there.

Welcome to the area, and if you have any questions, I'd be happy to help. We have two girls (5 & 7) and live about 15 mins from you.

Re: Am i needed??

Re: Hiring a car in UK with a Canadian Licence of less than 1 year?

I've rented on a Cdn license before lots of times, and I suspect you're being given false information... I wouldn't even worry about it. If one asks too many questions, go to another company.

There's a large expat community in NS, and there's a few meet ups throughout the year (BBQ in the park, bonfire night, etc).

Unless you're looking for a LOT of land (eg/ over 10 acres), you can...

Re: Realtors ...

I'm still struggling here. It is perfectly possible to employ a lawyer to prepare the contract here in Canada, for much less than the cost of using a realtor (purchasing). It's not a service that...

Re: Realtors ...

You think your realtor deserved the $30k (or whatever it was)?
