Jreist,

I was born in New Brunswick, moved to Alberta for 10 years after university and recently moved back to NB...........I think it is a great place. The biggest industry here is forestry, and then probably fisheries (mining has really declined here in the last 10-15 years). Lots of jobs, especially if one is bilingual (English & French).....we are expecting a huge shortage of nurses (1000 jobs over next 5 years and trades people. Housing is much cheaper than in Calgary (where I was living), but other things are very comparable (food, household items, etc.) NB has HST (14% - combination provincial & federal tax) whereas Alberta has only 7% GST. But what people tend to forget is that our provincial portion of HST pays for services that are provided to all residents of NB, but one has to pay for in Alberta such as school bus, healthcare, etc. Overall, there are pro's & cons for NB, but it is a more relaxed way of life which I enjoy. As for weather, it really depends on where in the province one lives. Summers is usually humid, hot and rainy. Winter is cold, windy and snow (depending on where one lives can vary from 10" to 120" of snow per year.

Thanks

Dan
