    Re: Retirement towns

    We lived in in 9 different towns in BC and settled on Cranbrook as our retirement locale. Moved here in 2004, from Kamloops and have never regretted the move . An hour from Alberta, 45 minutes to USA, regional hospital. Probably the best variety of Big game hunting in the province. Doesn't have the brutal weather or bugs, of the North. Housing is affordable. If your an outdoor enthusiast the East Kootenay's have it all.

    Re: Retirement towns

    I moved to Quesnel a year ago and love it. Bought a rural property. It's affordable, people are nice and there's a hospital. Quesnel has everything you need, plus PG is only an hour away. My folks moved here too. My Mom recently had a hip replacement in PG. - the surgery wait time was a lot less than in the lower mainland where she was before.

    Re: Retirement towns

    Very interesting thread and a lot of great information here. I don't know which town or towns would be best to retire in, but I will mention some of the trends that are coming which one may wish to consider. I know I will get some hate mail on this, but, I don't really care.....So here goes.....

    1). I believe we are in Global Cooling and not Global Warming. We have had 3 successively colder/longer winters in North America and Europe. If this next winter is colder or longer, then that will be a confirmation of the trend and we can expect much colder and longer winters in the years ahead.

    2). The civil unrest cycle is picking up, so moving forward it may be unsafe to live in any of the cities or towns where there are a lot of SJW's.

    3). Food is going to become much more expensive for 2 reasons...because of the shortened growing seasons and eventually (2024) because of the decline in value of currencies as people lose trust in Governments.

    4). Commodity prices (which include oil and gas) will have an interim peak in 2024, so expect much, much higher fuel costs going forward.

    5). Broke Governments will start to go hard after your money and your assets and real estate is a sitting duck as you can't pick it up and move it....

    6). The Canadian $ will move sharply lower vs. the U.S. $ over the next 5 years. That means food, gas, and everything priced in U.S. $'s will be much, much more expensive.

    7.) We will move from deflation (currently) into a period of stagflation which means much higher costs for everything, with a slower economy...but this will not be a demand type of inflation, it will be a cost-push inflation.....the cost/push comes in because of higher commodity prices and higher taxes.....

    These are the big trends that will take place over the coming years, so I just wanted to give people a heads up and something to think about as you make your life decisions. These trends are going to affect everybody and the people who feel that life has wronged them will petition Governments to do something for them, but Governments won't be able to help as they are broke. This is going to make for a lot of angry people and Governments have actively pointed at "the rich" who in their view don't give enough in taxes, as the primary problem for their ineptitude. This WILL give rise to civil unrest and may make richer people vulnerable.....I am making decisions now in my life based on these trends, as I want to protect myself and my kids. You can call me crazy, and you may disagree with me....but, just look at what's happening now, people are uneasy. There is a lot of anger out there. I see it everyday in drivers and just in people's attitudes. Everyone knows that something is wrong, but most can't put their finger on what it is. Governments will exploit this and further divide the people. I would urge everyone to seriously consider their financial choices in light of these trends. I hope this post helps at least one person.......If it did, them please pm me.... blessings to everyone....

    I believe you are right on the money, money that will be in short supply for a large part of the population and it will eventually spill out in the open.
    Hopefully by that time I will be well established in my place of retirement and have some reserves in cash, food and ammo.
    Self sufficiency (as much as possible), will be the most important qualities one can have, but you can never be 100% self sufficient.
    Trade and barter, knowing a few people you can trust will make all the difference.
    Of course the government will anticipate all this, hence #5 on your list is something that will be a problem.
