Re: “Saying farewell to Nova Scotia for a reason

I moved to this Province in 2001 from the UK. Lots of changes in my life since then. For instance I am now a single parent. This Province claims to want new blood but there's nothing here for the current occupants, let alone to attract new ones.
Despite paying the highest taxes, our services suck. We have family courts and maintenance enforcement yet no ability to enforce a damn thing. I work 80+ hours a week, am owed over $100k in child support, pay the highest taxes in the country, and yet am a low income family. If it wasn't for the terms of the court order which force me to stay in NS with minor children, just in case their Dad wants to put in an appearance after being MIA for over 4 years, we would move too.
My now 17 year old plans on doing just that - heading out West as soon as school is done. There's no opportunities here for him to learn a trade. My now 14 year old intends heading off elsewhere too to study for his doctorate.
NS has endless policies supposed to improve the quality of life for all but all they do is keep the honest folk honest.
I love this Province. I love the place, I love the people. But the infrastructure of zero support even for those working their butts off to survive, massive taxes on the dwindling population and little opportunity for future generations, means that even those who would like to stay, won't be able to.
