    My dad is! Love it out there. Don't know much aside for pricing etc. Haven't been in a few years. Missed this years trip due to moving :(

    You don't want New Brunswick. It sucks here. We freeze 7 months, drown for 4 months and have one month of sun.

    We have no real show circuit here, only one equine vet in the entire maritimes and I could go on and on lol. I want to move back west *sigh*

    The only good thing about this area is the trail riding. Yet the barn I board at doesn't even have trails *grumble*

    Not so horsey, but calling Albertans, if you earn around $100,000 per anum and live in Calgary would you be well off, moderately well off, rich or poor?

    Well, the weather is EXTREMELY flaky. So it can go from raining to sunshine in liquitty split. But the land is very nice actually, I am from the UK but I wouldnt mind maybe having a summer place down here.

    Ps. There is no good reliable weather man down here.

    A single person with a 100k salary would be reasonably well off. Harder to support an entire family on 100k per year with as comfortable of a lifestyle. An average family home in Calgary will run around 450k. It all depends on what you expect as well off, rich or poor. Affordable horse property around Calgary doesn't really exist. Acreages withinn a reasonable commute are very expensive. Sales tax and income tax are low than in Sask. I'm not sure about property tax.

    A number of years ago we moved to Sask from Alberta. Everyone in Sask told us we would find it way cheaper to live. We didn't find that at all. Insurance was the same or more, property taxes were double, income tax was much higher and the cost of goods was the same or more in Sask, except PST made them quite a bit more. Since we've been back in Alberta however, prices have been steadily increasing, but our property tax is still less than it was in Sask 10 years ago.

    Hey Canucks, have you all frozen? Been flooded or just snowed in?
