Is Alberta better than Nova Scotia???


No, for the reasons i shall explain now.

-The Alberta oil sands have a huge carbon footprint.
According to government agency Environment Canada, greenhouse gas pollution from Alberta oil sands is expected to increase by 124 percent between 2010 and 2030 if left unchecked. By 2030, climate pollution from oil sands could make up 14 per cent of Canada's entire carbon footprint and some 60 per cent of the forecast rise in the nation's greenhouse gas pollution.

-The Alberta oil sands produce lakes of toxic sludge.
A 2013 report concluded that an accident related to the failure of one of the oil sands tailing ponds could have catastrophic impact in the aquatic ecosystem of the Mackenzie River Basin due to the size of these lakes and their proximity to the Athabasca River. Also, according to documents from the Canadian government, the tailing ponds are leaking and contaminating Alberta groundwater.

-The toxic tailing lakes are considered one of the largest human-made structures in the world. Toxic lakes in Northern Alberta span 176 square kilometers and can be seen from space.

-The oil sands are set to lose even more jobs.

-largest ever auction of Canadian industrial equipment has recently taken place.

-Wages are plummeting, and are the lowest in the country, while Nova Scotia have the highest wages.

-Massive fires. And no money for firefighters.

-hockey teams suck!!!!!

For reasons why Nova Scotia is better:
-The Ocean,In Nova Scotia, you"re never more than half an hour away from the sea.

-The temperatures in Halifax are mild and cool and a lot less extreme than in other cities, which have very hot summers and very cold winters.

-Employment Destination, Halifax offers a wide variety of employment options from Industry, Technology, Health Services and Government. It is a destination city which offers jobs to a large labour force, educational training.

-Transportation, HRM is very easy to get around, once you know your way. The urban core of HRM is well served by Metro Transit, which operates a good bus service as well as the pedestrian only harbour ferries connecting downtown Halifax to two locations in Dartmouth. Two suspension bridges link the municipality"s urban core. Halifax Stanfield International Airport is the main airport located 35km (22 miles) outside of downtown Halifax and provides scheduled flights to domestic and international locations.

-Roots,Halifax has been a place to call home for many generations. Many transient careers that move into Nova Scotia never leave. The people are friendly; there is a quality of lifestyle and a sense of well-being. Starting a family, building on your career, or retirement living, there are more and more people setting roots in Nova Scotia as opposed to moving on.

They are places, and not everything you don't know is automatically "$hit", that's the same logic as toddler has. Just cause your ignorant about places that are outside your own country doesn't they are stupid, and they are beautiful places, and Alberta supplies a most of the worlds oil, so surprisingly A LOT of people care.

Nobody knows what those things are so nobody cares. They are equally $hit.
