I just noticed in your profile that you mention you are possibly moving to Vancouver (so jealous...) I lived there for 10 years and LOVED it. Expensive though. No space given the mountains and the ocean so real estate is very very pricey. Hence board is also pricey close to the city. Expect to drive at least 45 minutes outside of the city to get something for a reasonable price. Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows (where I used to ride), Abbotsford, Langley, all have stables but require going over a bridge if you live in Vancouver itself. And bridges, as you will discover make for NASTY traffic.
B.C. as well, just had a referendum that repealed the HST (GST + PST = 12% in BC) so that now they only have GST on some items and GST + PST on others. Confused yet?
Board, as a service, will only have GST applied so you will only pay 5% in B.C.
Hope that helps!
