Canada is a great place to retire. Social welfare, racial harmony, beautiful scenery, close to America (and so you can still absorb US pop culture).

I wouldnt mind visiting Britain. I wouldnt want to live there because i heard that it is really expensive. Well, Europe is expensive.

well, what I meant is you have to have so many qualifications and pass an interview as well... a bit like unversity admissions... and this was the procedure way before 9/11

I here you. Our immigration system is a bit of a mess. Its on the news almost everyday. I was watching Global National, and one report was explaining how over 500 unemployed, reciently immigrated doctors are in B.C. at the moment. The stupid part is that we currently have a shortage of doctors.

OO, to add to the above post. Did you here about those foreign students who were spying on nuclear power plants in Ontario? If you did, that is why people are insecure about immigration. Also, where did you immigrate from? I know its a quicker process if you immigrate from a western country opposed to a 3rd world country.

yea, I've read the papers... that's what happens when they need 'canadian experience'... how are you supposed to get it? slghtly off topic, our unemployment rate is higher than most western countries, based also on generous unemployment benefits

I've been dreaming about moving to California lately. Too many bleak days in London. Maybe if I'm lucky get a place to do a PhD at a Californian uni.

no, i didn't really hear about that... what you just said is funny b/c ... I came here from Albania, and about the spying thing, it just reminded me of that simpsons episode where the albanian kid sent to live with the simpsons was a spy for the albanian gov't, and he was spying on homer's nuclear plant too

Well, you see the generous unemployment benifits for those layed off kept my family afloat. The softwood lumber tarrifs killed a lot of jobs here. My mother is going back to work in March, but she has been layed off for 2 months so far this year, and around 5 months last year. As for getting another job, well she is 50, and she has been a log scaler for almost 30 years, not easy.

As for the rest of the country, i know Newfoundland has a 10% unemployment rate, mainly because the huge decline in the fishing industry.

As for Canada having a huge unemployment rate, its not that bad. 7% versus the U.S. 5% and Germany's 9%, i say we arent doing that bad.

Yes, i know people who abuse it for sure. There is this drug dealer 3 blocks from me who recieves the benifits and sells marijuana. Also, im sure you have heard of the 7.5 billion dollars dumped into Native affairs.
