Even in paradise it can be “damn cold”, says a German businessman who has been living in Nova Scotia for more than 20 years. In winter, the temperatures would always drop below minus 25 degrees Celsius. The argument that brokers liked to use, that the province on the east coast of Canada lies on the latitude of southern France, only won over a tired smile from local people like him.
Nova Scotia is therefore a paradise especially for people who are not afraid of the cold and love outdoor life, who hunt moose or bears and who want to fish large amounts of fish. The part of the province that has become a hotspot of German emigrants and real estate speculators in the past, the island of Cape Breton in the far north, is considered to be particularly natural.
For some time now, according to a businessman, “German citizens with brown ideas” have settled in Cape Breton.
