My thanks Glacier. Gotta keep Vernon a secret.

I was up in Fort St John late in the winter. They have lots of jobs and there are toys in every driveway, just like Alberta, but there was a winter's worth of dog poop all over the place. Nobody cleans up after their dog. In fact, they just open the front door and hope he does his business on the sidewalk or in the neighbour's yard.

You couldn't pay me enough to live in Fort St. John. I don't care WHAT the stats say, I'd pick Vernon over Fort St. John any day.

Fort ST John and Vernon are not comparable, people would choose one or the other for completely different reasons. IT's great to live in a province and a country where we have this choice.

Perfect hopefully it will cool down the real estate market here. I was born and raised in Vernon. I worked up in FSJ off and on for 10 years, and would stay for 3-4 months at a time. There is no chance in hell that FSJ is a better place than Vernon. The only thing that FSJ has over Vernon is high paying jobs because of the oil field.

Vernon is a absolute living hell.

Really, it's not. I moved to the Okanagan in 1982 and don't think that I'll ever leave.

Vernon is for me too.

My next move will be into a pine box, 6 feet long, 18" high. Need that much length to show off b/w glossy tail.

The best part of Vernon is leaving it.

Like Mark Twain said, step high and fast so it looks like you're leading a parade rather than being run out of town. :biggrin:

I think we actually agree on something :130: I moved here in 2006 and no real desire to leave. Love it here for the most part :smt045
