Also, I just think for a town the size of GB-W (5 100), it is tremendously under developed...My parents still live there and it's almost heart wrenching at times to see the lack of services...
I agree. Compare GBW to St Stephen or Sussex. GBW has almost 1000 more residents than either of these towns, yet has hardly ANYTHING.
Sussex and St Stephen both have Atlantic Superstores, Sobeys, Shoppers, multiple fastfood restaurants, relatively full strip-malls full of banks and other services, etc.
What does GBW have? A hopeless Sobeys and a Guardian Drugs? Subway?
