It's got it's good and bad. If you like hippie/politically correct/environmentally friendly kind of atmosphere you'll like it. If you don't believe global warming is man caused then you wouldn't fit in. I don't visit Nelson much.

It doesn't have any industry so it really is a gorgeous setting, no pollution unless you count the hippies panhandling on Baker st.

Downfalls are ridiculously high priced real estate and lack of work.

That'd be the West Kootenay unless you cross the ferry.

East Kootenay seems to have the colder winters then us, we get more of the Okanagan weather. Cranbrook and east is always fricken cold.

Nelson has a huge indoor gardening community. I bet 50% of that town is unemployed. I have allot of family in nelson. They have there like every were else. A good town to retire but not to make an honest living. Not a lot of acerage either

I'd have to stay within driving distance of work so Squamish would be my choice, close to Van yet it feels like your in the boonies and I have family there!

If everything goes good , I am buying a house in Castlegar, this summer ... So I would say the best place for me would be Castlegar.
