I swear it's that breakfast meal you have down there called grits and gravy.

TorpedoVegas All you guys who have never seen a fat chick in Alberta obviously have never set foot in a local Wal-Mart.

Hmmmm, no need to cert and/or emissions test used cars.

No taxes on private sales of used cars.

No 50 km/h over "stunt driving" laws.

Radar detectors are legal. (can you tell I used to live in Communist Ontario?)

Land transfer tax is significantly lower than Ontario.

Gas is the cheapest in the country.

Pay tends to be higher and the job security is good.

1:20 from my house is a town that many people come from all over the world to see (Banff), and the same for mountains that we get to ride for up to 7 months of the year.

On the same note, there are enough mountains here that if you're careful you can ride an entire season without ever standing in line.

Our drinking water comes from a glacier. Fuck yeah all you bottled water bitches...

There are more sunshine days per year here than most other places in the world.

Very low humidity means A/C is pretty much not necessary, even when it's 35 deg out in the summer.

Long summer days with the sun coming up at 5:00 and not setting until 10:00 at night.

Relaxed atmosphere around firearms meant that when I had a semi-auto pistol I quickly got a permit to bring it to any border crossing, range, or shop in the province. In Ontario I required separate permits to bring it to different ranges, a shop, etc.

Beer/wine/spirits are sold in private stores. In Ontario the LCBO is provincially owned and controls all the booze except beer. LCBO closes at 9:00 pm every night and earlier on sundays.

Provincially owned financial institutions and credit unions have some better offerings than the big banks for credit cards, accounts, etc.

We have some great locally brewed beer. What do you expect in grain and glacier water country?

There are massive parks dedicated to off-road vehicle use, sleds, ATVs, dirt bikes, and trucks...

Hmmmm... you might say I like it here.
That's it. I'm moving. Also, I've been to Banff a few times and never seen a fat chick.

Yeah, my usual grocery store has a beer store right beside it (co-op) so I usually get most of my beer there. If I'm looking for something they don't have Sobeys usually has it.

Yeah Alberta's not perfect! Using p-gravel on the roads in the winter , a WCB system that heavily favours the employers (and I AM an employer...), crappy produce from the states instead of good stuff grown close to home in Ontario, but the positives FAR outweigh the negatives.
