Hey

I'm being offered C$6000 monthly after tax as an expat. Is this enough for a family of 3? The kid will need to attend kindergarten for a few years before going into public schools. The missus is also planning to get a job once we get there

Some twit at Google or somewhere else that is used to verify place names has decreed that St. John's must be Saint John's. This is clearly crap but what can you do?

I live in Saskatoon, SK I was thinking of moving to St. John's. But rent costs are no different in price, the wages are lower, and utilities are more expensive. I think I'll just stay out west I guess.
