Watching the Rick Mercer Report and he's in Ft. McMurray. Talking to the Mayor, and the average salary is $91,000. They're paying $12-13/hour at the Tim Hortons!

Yes, they've got the oilsands, but really, even I'm willing to move to where the dragons are (see map) if hubby and I had a chance of making that kind of coin (of course in this fantasy, he'd be out slogging in the oilsands, and I would remain in some sort of non-physical, IT geek [read WARM] type job. Oh and of course IT personnel would be just as valuable as the dudes haulling the billions of barrels of oil out of the ground). Monster.ca here I come!
