Fair enough, but I thought since i lived there recently I qualified for an unbiased opinion. I've lived in many places in Canada. Most posts I've seen so far in this thread are of beautiful blue skys, mountains, riding in Feb at 8c with a little snow, flowers etc. While all the above are true and my experience as well to some degree. Many of my co-workers have those sun lamps, because of the dark gray sky and rain just about every day from Nov till April. No rust or bugs are a couple things that I remember most, along with lower taxes and bills out there compared to the East of here.
