  •  Well, I was able to purchase property (0+ / 0-)

    several years ago. I would not be able to actually stay for longer than six months at a time (I think) without permanent resident status, which is what I found when I talked with folks at Immigration in Nova Scotia. There are several streams to follow if you want to stay permanently - sponsorship, community ties, family members who are citizens, etc. But I am very close to the magic age (older...) where it does become more difficult.

    My fall-back option is as you said, get close, and then be able to vacation on Cape Breton!

      I was hoping I'd missed something!  My wife and I are at the magic age already I'm afraid.  But we'll be close enough to bike over the border if we want to.  Can't wait to see some of the great parks and events in Vancouver.  It's a superb city--my favorite in many ways.  (Montreal is also up there.)

      America needs a UNION NEWS channel. We (unions) have the money, we have the talent. Don't buy 30 second time slots on corporate media, union leaders; fund your own cable news channel and tell the real story 24/7/365

        but still in the US - and soon, I hope. Hubby wants Maine, I want Vermont. (It's closer to Centre Bell - alle Montreal Canadiens!)

        •  Vermont may also get single payer (0+ / 0-)

          healthcare soon.  Their House just voted for it.  Maine has a teabagger gov and Republican Snowe for Senator (Vermont has the best Senator in the Senate in Sanders).  I'm with your choice!
