Re: “Saying farewell to Nova Scotia for a reason

I am 24 years old and just moved away from Nova Scotia for two main reasons. First every apartment in downtown Halifax was so over priced and infested by mice it was impossible to stay sane. I finally moved to a wonderful, affordable place ( with out a pest problem) away from the downtown core and commuted. However being young and working full time I love living downtown and never minded paying for it, it was the on going mice infestations that kiled it ( 8 different buildings with 8 different landlords). And the real issue I left, wages. Doing the exact same thing on the opposite coast of canada where I now reside ( Vancouver island). I do the same job and went from making $12.50 to over $18.00 ( with the same company). I ask why can there be such a huge flux in wages and I'm simply told, the economy is horrible out east and we don't have to pay more, we are competitive in the N.S. Market. Halifax was one of the best places I have ever had the experience of living, but I could barely make ends meet with horrible wages and high housing costs. It's really too bad, it's such a wonderful place to experience, there just is lack of opportunity.
