First thing was to get a local # now next is to get a place to stay then look for work. Will start tomorrow. First impressions: a lot less cars on the roads than TO, prices for gas is 20-25 cents per litre cheaper (1.25/litre in TO VS 1.05 here), cars look cheaper as well as car insurance.
More later on!

I was definitely surprised when I researched the gas prices. But the cars look like beaters on autotrader. Good luck out there, I saw some cheap rooms for rent on kijiji fully furnished for $600-650 ( don't know if they are in great neighborhoods) What kind of car are you planning on buying? I'm trying to get a lesser piece o shit to drive out there as we speak but don't know what'll be able to handle an Alberta winter
