If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.

Think twice. Not what you expect it to be. More laid back and very expansive and expensive. We may speak English, but Canadians and Americians are very different. Also, the weather here is very dreary and cold. Which is to be expected.
