But you can all take peace of mind that every month 250,000 foreign workers will be here to take your place. Mmmm, think of all those Chinese, Colombians, Vietnamese, Asians, and Africans taking over the Maple leaf.

Oooh, doesnt it make you wanna grab a Molsen!
Are you a racialist?

What do you expect of an immigrant populated country? Perhaps you'd be better off alone on an ice floe.

What actually are those individuals 'taking over'?

I have to assume they are taking over good paying jobs then accept a quarter of what was actually being paid, earning as much money inthe time allowed them to remain in this country,(such as it is), then take the money back with them.

Bleed the country dry before you lose your minds to this idiotic government.

Yes, a Moslem even!

I know this country is full of sceptics - but honestly, go to Perfect Fit on 44th in Calgary and wait by the gates at 3.00.

Its amazing to see all the non Canadians piling out to their battered mazdas etc etc, and getting paid $8.33 p/h.

All to easy to see why no Canadians dont want to work

I'd ask the question why move to the UK! I have to concur with most of the comments and statement of facts that offer a good reflection of the UK and where it's going. Lucky for me I met an adorable girl who lives in Canada and i love everything about Canada (except the lack of twisty roads and 'proper' race circuits)

Squid, you're getting things all bass-ackwards.

The last laugh's on the immigrants you speak of. Obviously they came here to exploit the Canadian economy, and become wealthy and successful. We've managed to screw them over with low paid menial work, and prevent cradle Canadians getting their hands dirty. It's genius.

Your perceptive comment concerning Canadian's work ethic is pithy and noteworthy. Thank you.

You keep mentioning this, but need to do better research: http://www.sccbc.net/

Live anywhere near some mountains and you're going to find twisty roads.

Awesome, thats what im talking about, a 'proper' circuit As you say I should have done better research.

Ill have to perused the wife to be to move to BC though as I imaging it's a long drive there Lol. Then again its a quick flight on westjet for a weekend trip to the races.

That now means I can't think of one negative about Canada, ah except the holiday entitlement but I can live with that in all honesty.

That's very much employer dependent - my first employed job here (after running my own business), gave me 5 weeks vacation, so it's not necessarily that bad.

They'll be 'nice' to your face while spreading lies about you to your co workers or even your boss. Don't ever talk about something controversial with them either, like politics. Basically they're mild mannered, passive-aggressive twits that are best dealt with aggressively. Don't ever think they're your friends. The only friend a Wasp Canadian has is a dog or cat. People to them are lower than rats.
Just suck what you can out of them before they're able to suck what they want out of you....because, make no mistake. You are only as good as what you can do for them, and only as long as you are able to do it. You're just a number to them.
What do you expect from a people where no one talks to one another in the streets, people dress shabbily, they live to work and not work to live and for whom the highest aspiration is to watch hockey with a beer in one hand and channel changer in the other.

Wait till China and India take over your economy
By the way, if you are educated you should know China & India are bigger economies in term of GDP than Canada. Play hockey, drink beer you uneducated jerks.

Mmmmm - food for thought for the foreign worker
No element of truth.

It's insane.

Why dont the good people of Britain stand up against their teenage oppressors?
This.

Maybe they need to read some Gordon Neufield. It might help explain some of this behaviour.

I was in England at Christmas and I've always seen myself as a latter day Paul Benjamin/Kersey. I have a gun. And knives. I was ready.

Alas, I never saw anyone wearing a hood. I never saw anyone faintly threatening. I did hear jolly, slightly rowdy, crowds outside pubs but that's how it should be, innit?

Perhaps 99% of the good people of Britain aint got teenage oppressors.
