DJ – We moved from Edmonton, which was a wonderful city for careers and rasing children (but such long cold winters!) to Vancouver Island five years ago and love it. The weather is soft and mild and never really too hot, although the winters can have some terrible winds and lots of rain. A big bonus is the views of the ocean and mountains from my desk. How cool is that? A little Canadian humor for you. Question: How do you define an Albertan? Answer: Someone who was born in Saskatchewan and retires to BC. That’s me!
