Oh ok nice. You definitely know more about Alberta than I do then, lol. Like I said, I only spent my 2012 there on a one year contract.Uncle dans leg wrote:Thanks again TBK
I lived in Okotoks before we moved here(VCR island) and also spent a winter in Whitehouse so I am very familiar with winter...
Btw, I don't plug in until at least -25
You are confirming much of what I had heard as well and all things do look rosy I suppose. We ended up choosing the west side as well.
I look forward to converting the heathen anti-canuck ignoramuses as well. On a mission
Funny that you mention Vancouver Island and Whitehorse.
I was born and raised on Vancouver Island (close to Nanaimo).
As far as Whitehorse goes, I almost accepted a position up there a after my 2012 contract in Lethbridge expired.
Northwestel made me an unbelievable offer and I almost accepted it. I didn't realize that the lifestyle and benefits of Whitehorse in general were so off the hook! Lol.
Re - ignoramuses in Lethbridge. From my experience, the people in Lethbridge were unbelievably nice. Even though most made it clear that they weren't Canuck fans, I found them to be respectful and logical in hockey discussions (I.e. Great respect for the twins, but usually mentioned the fact that they often found it difficult to play at the same level during the playoffs.........which I agree with by the way).
The only idiotic "sisters" comments came from Calgarians when I was up there.
I also don't advise listening to 960 "The Fan" very much while down there. Don't know what it's like now but back then, half of the hockey talk there revolved around Canuck bashing. Luckily, the Jim Rome show made 960 "The Fan" atleast somewhat decent.
