I've known people eat six Krispy Kremes as a snack. KKs run to about 900 calories. Each.

Yes, I do know that there are loads of calories in donughts (heart attack material) - but I still found your comment amusing anyhow

So a Steve666 baiter, baits Steve666. In fact, I think I'll promote myself to senior Steve666 baiter based on the success of this bait.

I always like the look of KK's and have bought a six box in the past to share with hub...but I always feel sick after the first one, have a massive sugar rush and can't eat any more. I'm just a lightweight. Although you wouldn't know to look at me...I have very efficient fat storage mechanisms...

Canada wants the lower end immigrants who will serve you fries. Well educated white western Europeans don't stand a chance. And you struggle to find a job because of the unionized positions that go to people in the unions first. You can stick it up your %^&*

Then why has a Waterloo institute (right near you) just hired one of Australia's greatest minds?

http://www.perimeterinstitute.ca/en/...chael_Nielsen/

I don't think Dr. Nielsen will be coming to Canada to serve fries. BTW, the majority of Perimeter Institute's scientists are from White western European countries or the US.

I think immigrats face the same situations in most countries.
I came into the UK on a HSMP scheme about 5 months ago, It took me about 4 months to get a half decent paying job, everyone wants Uk experience or Uk qualifications or the local knowledge, my husband got a good job with a bank only for the bank to change their minds..and thats after they both had signed a contract, they paid him a week salary for the inconvinence - no reasons given.
To make matters worse Mr Liam bryme(Immigration minister) decided to make the process of getting further leave on HSMP impossible for anyone above 30 years who earned less than 35k p.a. Most people had to take crazy cuts to salary just to get the so called Uk experience. A lot of the interviews I attended, I was over qualified for in the employers words.
I wonder how the Homeoffice expects people to go back to their home countries abruptly after they have sold all with no jobs to go back to.
Labour is doing this just to show the voters they are doing something about immigration when there are less than 50,000 people on HSMP visa in contrast to millions of illegal immigrants.

At least in canada you get Permanent residency and even if you want to go back home you can do so at your pace.
So every labour market protects its own, thats just the way it is

My canadian immigration process was started 5 years ago and its getting close to the PPr stage..hopefully!!!! and I honestly cant wait to leave UK.
I have enjoyed my stay here galivanting the country to attend interviews but at serious cost, and I would rather face the problems in canada knowing that it wont last forever rather than staying in Uk where immigration policies keep changing everyday as I am not interested in becoming an illegal immigrant.
