Re: “Saying farewell to Nova Scotia for a reason

I love Nova Scotia. I grew up there, went to university there (Dalhousie which is super expensive!), and at one point wanted to live there forever. But now my husband and I are in Manitoba and the reason is better job security, better pension, better health benefits. Gas is way cheaper in Manitoba, electricity is way cheaper in Manitoba, taxes are cheaper in Manitoba, housing costs is reasonable in Manitoba. Do I miss NS? Absolutely! Do I want to live in NS? Absolutely! I miss the ocean scenery and family and friends and Halifax which is a great city and the Annapolis Valley filled with amazing local produce, etc. But I like having financial stability and a safe financial future more and the reality is this is much more attainable in the west. My husband and I are well educated 30 somethings who love NS and it breaks our hearts to turn on the NS news and see more jobs being cut and cost of living rising, and general financial doom and gloom. At the very least in 18 years when we hit retirement we will move back home to NS, but until then the west is the best for us financially. I really wish we could return to NS sooner, but I just can't see it happening.
