Hi Sandy

Welcome to our world

What sort of advice were you looking for? Specific to Westcan or the process in general

Just read a scary post about westcan while on this site and was looking to see if this was general opinion or a one-off.

wanted to see if anyone else had come from uk to westcan, calgary and if they recommend it/ hated it - any comments really.
