I live in a rural part of Nova Scotia
Amazingly I cannot buy a SIM card online and have to travel to halifax to get one ? is this correct ?

Also is it possible to get a number local to my area even if I buy the card in Halifax ?

Yeah sure, if you activate at the store you will have to give your address, and the number will reflect that.

But I thought you could buy a SIM card online, did you go to the accessories section?

I spoke to customer service and they told me I could only buy prepaid in a store.
would love to know if this is correct - would happily buy online if I could

I can see right there online there is a product !! I m going to try it - wish me luck
very disappointing customer service rep.

Hopefully the Galaxy ace takes a normal sim ??

The Galaxy Ace does indeed take a normal SIM.
