Re: British traned physio therapist- wants to work in British Columbia

It could come through in time then or just a month or so in to your visit.

Re: British traned physio therapist- wants to work in British Columbia

Unfortunately it took them about 5 months to do mine. That was back in 2004 though. I'm not sure how you can tell how long it will take them. They did come back with questions for mine and I had...

Re: Bugs

It's certainly abnormally bad over here in Vancouver. It's putting me off doing the yard, or at least that's my excuse.

Re: What do you like about living in your part of Canada?

I'd concur with the original poster, I encounter better customer service. Sorry to hear of your experiences.

Re: Crossing to US from BC - easy or hard

Yeah, it's the old central train station (now also the Greyhound terminal) near Science World; it's a grand old building (as in Seattle). As BTJ mentions the customs clearance is in the station (in...

Re: Crossing to US from BC - easy or hard

Depending what time you are going, and what for, the train is a great option for a weekend away to Seattle and MUCH easier on the whole border thing.

Re: British Media Slams Canada at the Games

Think I prefer that Tessa Virtue, on balance.

Re: Sensational GOLD for GREAT BRITAIN

Well BBC sport is still listing Vancouver 2010 (currently happening) lower down the importance ladder than London 2012 (two years away), so I'm not sure there's much chance of that!
