Bill 310; There are some great things on the horizon, health care wise, in Kelowna. It is, after all, Premier Clark's riding. Big hospital addition, new Cancer Center. Even a doctor could barely afford to purchase a home in Vancouver, these days. Some companies are planning their escapes(from Vancouver), they are not able to attract quality employees, due to the overpriced housing market. People want to own their own homes. A million dollar shit-hole in a bad neighbourhood does not appeal to most folks. We toyed around with purchasing a studio in the west end, the longer we are away, the less we miss Vancouver. We certainly look forward to visiting the big smoke. I know that there are other great place to retire in Canada. This is the best places IN B C thread. You pesky easterners should start your own thread. I moved to Vancouver, from Manitoba, 28 years ago. I always wanted to. My father was from Vancouver, my mother was born in Kitsilano. B C has not disappointed. Unbelievable recreation opportunities. Endless motorcycling, really. Anywhere else to recommend? Creston is a great place, it was on the horizon for us at one point. We decided that we wanted more of an urban environment, and as well wanted to be within a reasonable distance to Vancouver, the ocean and the Island.
