Default 48 years today

I landed in Montreal on March 4, 1969. How different things were then. No internet, no BE forum and phone calls were prohibitively expensive. I had no idea what I was getting into but it seemed like a good idea at the time. I have no regrets. Canada has been good to me. Good luck to everyone beginning the journey.

Curious to know if you still have a British accent after all those years?

Things were much different then. The whole process took only ten weeks from start to finish and there was much less paperwork !

Congratulations!!
