  • American tries to figure out what Canadian road signs mean, fails

    Boston Globe film critic Ty Burr returned home to Massachusetts this week after spending some time "car camping" near the coast of New Brunswick with his wife. Burr's friends and family on Facebook were equally confused by a photo he posted of a green-and-white River Valley Scenic Drive signpost. "The signs of New Brunswick's highways and byways aren't exactly done wrong, but they seem to require a cognitive leap of which our American sensibilities, enfeebled by reality TV shows and Katy Perry songs, are incapable," he explained.

     A potential nightmare example emerged last week with an Antigonish, Nova Scotia house that saw its assessed value drop to $1 from $365,000 after the owners found Mi’kmaq artifacts on the property and reported them.

Real estate laws in Canada can be murky on this stuff, as sellers are only required to disclose material defects to the property, such as a crack in the foundation. And while nobody expects to find a burial site when they start digging out the basement, there are value killers you can watch out for.
