30 Year Resident

Starting in January of this year it is estimated that 10,000 Americans a day will become eligible for retirement over the next 19 years. These numbers are smaller in Canada but proportionally the same will be true (with an estimate of 1000 Canadians per day looking  to retire).  Retiring urbanites commonly look to escape the high cost of city living and seeking a lower cost and more relaxed pace.
Liverpool offers a very good hospital, curling rink, fitness centre (20 million cost to build with indoor walking track), golf and proximity to three ocean beaches. It is  the canoe capital of Nova Scotia with many lakes and rivers, remote camping, good fishing and fresh water swimming.  It has an excellent and active  theatre that brings in much  entertainment, good restaurants and a new Best Western Hotel. Liverpool is 1 hour from Kejimkujik National Park, 45 minutes from Keji (Kejimkujik) Adjunct ocean wilderness, 45 minutes from Thomas Raddall Provincial Park, and 1.5 hours from Halifax.  Liverpool also offers better than average Canadian weather.
I have lived in a number of other places before coming to Liverpool where I have been for 30 years now and have raised my family here. Liverpool has a lot to offer and in fact has everything we want. There is plenty of room here for good folks who like the things I have mentioned.
Some developers are seeing the potential mentioned and are already building a few condos. Others are in the beginning stages of  some nice single story housing (900-1200 sq ft) with attached garage and deck. All of this comes with electricity and heat for $1,200 a month and is situated in a convenient, quiet, wooded location by a well treed nature walking trail.
Tell me, where in Canada you can do better than that?
