I just moved to Toronto 4 years ago (from London ON) and although yes, there are some rude people, I think in general people are very nice here! The only time you really encounter the rudies are during the rush hour commute. Everyone is busy so it's hard to not get pissed off at people that block doors on the TTC etc. But in general I'd say compared to the states, TO is still very polite!

 

I actually get a tad annoyed when I go back to London now because everyone moves sooooo slow! If you're in a rush (and I always am), you're screwed!

 

I love when I visit out west though. It's a different pace, it's nice. I'm not sure I could work/live there but maybe when I'm retired I could! For now I'm an east-coster I think!

 

Let's accept each other's provinces for both their good and bad qualities and call it a day cheesy.gif

You said it Heather!! There are definite advantages & disadvantages of all provinces in Canada!! It's all what you're looking for in life!! And there are rude & nice people EVERYWHERE!!!

 

I'm an Ontario transplant as well...I moved here from Newfoundland 3 years ago & would not change it! But there are also people who moved & are dying to get back to the rock!! Not me though - even though all my family & friends are there, I like the bigger city living!

Amanda - I've heard that Newfoundland is like another world (in a good way of course!). I've never heard anyone say anything negative about it...it sounds like a fun place to be and I'd love to visit there someday! :)

Well Kathy...I CAN say that I don't want to live there...it's too quiet for me right now! But if you're a big nature person (hiking, fishing, boating, snowmobiling, etc) it would be heaven!!! It truly is a beautiful place!! You should definitely go someday!! Let me know & maybe we'll be there the same time! I am going home next weekend for a few days - my aunt is sick, it's mother's day & my MOH's prego belly is getting bigger & bigger!! And I'm going home July 24th for our AHR (aka backyard bbq party!) - so if you want to come you are MORE than welcome!!

What part of Newfoundland are you from? My mom's family is all over the island, and even though I was born in Ontario, I call Newfoundland "home". I love the East coast and would love to have a summer house in Twilingate some day (should there ever be money for a summer house of course).

Jenn, I'm from the west coast...born & raised in Benoit's Cove (near Corner Brook) minus 3 yrs when my mom & I moved to Belleville/Peterborough when I was 1! DH was born in St. Johns but his family lives in Port aux Basques now.

 

Kathy, I would be happy to travel NL with you since I've yet to do the "touristy" things!! LOL

Newfoundland is really slow-paced, even here in St. John's. But I kinda like it that way :) I'm originally from the SW coast (Port-aux-Basques area) and FI is from Corner Brook. I wouldn't be able to live in my hometown, even my parents are moving out of there, but St. John's is perfect for me right now. Then again, coming from a population of 800 (yes hundred, not thousand) to over 100,000 was a little nuts lol But I will say, some of the best scenery is on the west coast. I miss the table mountains...

I bet I know your FI or, looking at your age, someone he is related to! I went to school with a Monique Lewis. Any relation??
Do you know the Merrigans in PAB? Or maybe Lynnette King from Fox Roost?? I went to school with her!

Small world!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
