We could just make things easy and paint the curbs where you're no longer permitted to park. I've seen some cities paint the curb yellow or red where the restricted area begins. At least there's no guessing, and it draws attention to the pedestrian corridor. Win-win.

Except for CPA who don't get to issue tickets there now.

Who is going to be responsible for the costs incurred of those painted areas that will need to be redone every year because of our winters?

Its the same reason why it takes so long for road lines to be repainted because our winters destroy them.

Do you actually have time to complain about this? “lol”

They both have things to offer, it just depends on what you are looking for and generally how outgoing you are.

Calgary is a bigger city, more opportunities in general. Many activities to choose from. More population. Excellent public transit (compared to PG, that is). More business-minded, maybe not as blue-collar. Mountains 1 hour away. More choice in everything - shops, restaurants, arts & entertainment. Excellent transportation links to other places.

Prince George is smaller, largely based on industry (forestry, sawmills) though UNBC has resulted in more young people there . Your money would probably go further in PG. Housing is cheaper. Maybe not all the recreation opportunities that there are here, but still lots to do and see since you are surrounded by forests. To fly anywhere (in many cases) you would have to transfer through another larger airport. And they still have a Drive-In theater. Rush hour lasts about 10 minutes. PG has everything you need, just less of it. And no Chinooks

It is almost apples to oranges.

Way more recreation in PG than Calgary.

Better fishing, camping, swimming, skiing etc.

Yes, but the downside is you live in PG.

Surprisingly good reply and advice, for this sub's standards.

I must add, u/JazzlikePermission, remember to always, ALWAYS get a carproof for a car, no matter if it's from kijiji or a dealership. Most dealerships have deals with carproof so they should be able to show you a carproof for free, if you get one done on your own it's around $50. A carproof shows whether the car has ever been incidented and whether the seller ever officially serviced the car. A lot of servicing and recalls are normal since most people get this done through dealerships officially. If the records show very little servicing and/or little or no recalls, I wouldn't buy that car as the owner either didn't ever bother with maintenance or did it themselves. Either way you could get screwed over easily.

I once came across this complete retard who was selling a sport bike and he claimed proudly that he was running diesel oil in it because it was cheaper and offered no change in performance. Needless to say I laughed my ass off at the guy and walked away.

u/JazzlikePermission, when buying any vehicle there are red flags you should be looking for. If the buyer says or does something that arouses one or more red flags, you really should consider walking away. There's nothing wrong with walking away from a deal, you need to do that sometimes, otherwise sneaky fuckers will rob you blind through pressure sales techniques.

Don't ever make any sort of deposit on a car, ever. I'll tell you why: either you change your mind and your money from your deposit is gone OR when it comes to getting the car from Kijiji it turns out that the seller was using a fake name and wasn't selling it in front of their own house and you're royally screwed out of your money. That happens very often.

Lastly, they'll always tell you there are a million gazillion people waiting to look at the car, which is one of the oldest tricks in the book and is absolute bullshit. They'll also tell you their manager is giving you an amazing deal that won't last, that they've never seen their manager give such a deal, etc. Don't fall for their tricks.

Source: ashamed as I am of it, I used to be a car salesman. Problem is that I was too nice and honest because I didn't want to pressure people into making horrible financial decisions or rip them the fuck off, so I just wasn't making enough money and went back to school to get into an honest career. Best decision I've ever made and now I have colleagues that aren't the scum of the earth, which is nice.

Carproof is a joke and gives you really nothing.

Your budget is going to dictate what you buy. Generally I find anything under 4-5k is going to need work and other stuff.

Does not say that. So quit making up rules.

It literally says that

Yielding to pedestrians 41(1) A person driving a vehicle shall yield the right of way to a pedestrian crossing the roadway within a crosswalk.

It says YIELD while crossing. Define YIELD and CROSSING.

It says roadway but it does not say distance.

Maybe annual driving tests

Edit: obviously annual driving tests are impractical but I would be quite happy to see licenses pulled for failing to complete remedial courses if you are cited for things like unsafe left turn, failing to stop, tailgating, speeding > x km/hr, and testing following any at-fault collision

Screw the driving test. Just make an advanced knowledge test.

So based on your description you want people to not talk about the mods poorly? Sound legit

The first rule of /r/Calgary is to not say anything bad about moderation. Guess we lose that "free speech" right around here.

Good advice, the first place we went was actually the red deer humane society as we thought we found an awesome match but the dog was not ready to be adopted (had been a stray for a year and needed a bit more time)

When looking for a dog we found the majority of the good ones got picked over pretty quick locally for good reasons.
