cadet said:Thanks for your reply, BernDawg. I am posted to Cold Lake,and have tons and tons of questions.
Prices..They say, groceries are "expensive"...Is it true?
Car insurance - which companies are most affordable?
PMQ? Which ones are "good", which ones are not?
Schools - are they on base or off base? Buses?
I should stop by now... If you answer at least part of my questions, I would greatly appreciate it, thanks.
OK from the top...
Groceries are not too bad in relation to the rest of the world. Some things a a little higher and some things are a little lower. Remember no prov tax!
I go with the personal and I pay less than $300/mo for 2 cars, a trailer and my house
I have no opinion on the Q's as I live off base but I hear the Martineau is the place to be.
There's a couple schools on base but I think they are moving off. You have to confirm as my kids go to the school down the road from the house. I f they have to bus then I don't think you have to pay and the cut off is 1.5km (I think). If you mean public transit that plan washed out this summer after a 6 mo trial and no use/profit.
Good luck and feel free to ask more if you wish
ps when are you posted?
