  1. Hi, Any Salisbury residents still about as have a new job was looking for rental properties, wondering if anyone had an insight into demand and pricing at the moment , also any areas to avoid.
  2. Ten days for which not paid, plus working 55 plus hours a week and no sick pay, Canada
  3. I truly believe I live in the best location, plus 2,300 Sq ft house approx $165,000 English speaking peace and tranquility
  4. Some real stereotypes here about Canada I moved to the South Okanagan from Marlborough Wilts some six and a bit years ago and am now a dual Citizen. There is a lot of Canada outside off Vancouver and Toronto. Ware I live we are semiarid about 8 inches of rain / snow a year, we do not usually get much snow and only cold for a couple of months normally in shorts from April to November, we do however get bears rattle snakes wolfs and scorpions but you leave them alone they leave you alone.Eighty mile long lake 1/2 mile down the road, and when I want to escape I jump on my ATV with the two dogs and there are hundreds of trails in the back country were you can go for days without seeing a another human being. Now I do miss my football and local pub but don't think I will be moving back any time soon.
  5. Not all of Canada is in winter ten months of the year I live in the semi arid area called the Okanagan BC, shorts normally go on in March and stay on to end October nice 80 mile warm lake to swim in and hundreds of wineries to visit.
  6. You can buy my place if you like 950,000 Canadian, in The Central Okanagan BC. in the warmest part Canada Very little Snow or rain very warm long Summers In shorts now till mid October • Nearly 6,000 Square feet • 190 degree lake view • 4 Bedrooms • 4 Bathrooms • 850 square foot lake view deck • 14 years old quality CONSTRUCTION on 3 floors • Most rooms have lake view • Home Theatre room • Games room • Lake view 8 person Hot Tub • Oversized double garage
  7. So many posters with no debt all must be of a similar mind set. Asset rich cash poor not much debt but no savings $23,000 Canadian on Line of credit bailed out on the UK 4 years ago. Million dollar house no mortgage business brought with cash (small taxi company) Truck, boat, Corvette, ATV, couple 3 & 5 cars brought for kids. Am I mad thinking on returning to England as I miss my Football and English pubs
  8. Wow what a lot of rubbish is being thrown around in this thread class divide seems alive and well in the UK. I was a Gas Service Engineer for 25 years in the UK and the general opinion from a lot white colour workers is to look down on you because you’re a trade’s person they seem to have a superiority complex. That’s until there central heating breaks down in the middle of winter then I have had them on telephone begging me to come and fix there heating. Now I have earned nearly 200,000 a year working as a self-employed gas fitter but I have certainly gone the extra mile for my customers including working Christmas day and after midnight plus many 80 hour weeks in the winter so why shouldn’t I earn that much. Also I completed five years of training before becoming fully qualified. Lots of responsibility if I leave a screw lose or over look some think I could blow someone up, or kill them with carbon monoxide poisoning. But I believe I always did a good job never had to advertise and had a waiting list for new customers. Invested lots money in the best equipment and a large inventory of parts, Insurance and training. Anyhow I left the UK 3 years ago to come and live and work in BC Canada in my $1.5 million lake view 6,000 sq ft house. The trades are certainly more respected in Nor h America than the UK not the same class divide.
