I moved from BC to Sask. I'm back in Ontario now. BC was nice except for the endless rain and the many people that couldn't drive if the road conditions were anything but dry (i remember the storm of 96, whole city shut down for a week or 2, traffic was awesome). Sask was ok except for the endless driving (and the deer are suicidal!). I was lucky, I only had to drive 15 miles to buy socks.
oh ya there was also the issue with frost bite on any exposed skin if you went out in January.
