It is not just the UK coming out of recession and I think Canada wasn't as badly affected by it as the UK was. It sounds like Canada isn't the place for you any more and it is time to head 'home' Please don't spend the months between now and November being so angry and bitter - it wont make things any easier for you. I hope your eventual return to the UK is a good one and that you are not disappointed in what you find there.

I reckon he'd be dancing down Stephen Avenue, wearing a 'Canada' hockey jersey, carrying a Tim Horton's Coffee, whistling Gordon Lightfoot's, "Alberta Bound" and merrily greeting every Black, Brown and Asian person who came his way!

I don't want to open up old wounds but I find this negativity about Canada and Canadians a bit saddening. Some of us have embarked on such a journey to realize our dreams and have a better life for our family. I know not every shoe will fit everyone but if we could just try and see the positives we can all achieve our potential. To answer the original question, I came to Canada to be happy.

Default Re: Why move to Canada?

I have not had time to read through this thread yet:

However the reason why I would like to move to Canada is because I would like to. I am not sure what it is, but something just draws me there.

I am happy living where I am at the moment, but I know I do not want to live here for the rest of my life.

If I am not able to get to Canada then I will move to the highlands.
