You'll have to explain to me the benefit to the economy of repaying debt to banks when compared to, let's say, buying an Apple phone, insofar a investment being pumped into the economy is concerned.

Re: Social life in Canada vs other countries

The part of your post that I quoted made reference to the "home fees in the UK" :p

Re: Social life in Canada vs other countries

Tuition in England and Wales is 9,000 pounds a year. Which course costs that much at your university?

Re: How the heck do you choose?!

Wanting a big house and garden is likely to rule out Vancouver (if you wish to purchase) but all your requests are likely to be met by all of the other locations you have suggested.

Re: How the heck do you choose?!

Each location would likely be able to offer you what you are after, based upon your first post.

Re: Diet

Where is that professed?

Don't Canadians, and the rest of the world, eat beef because they like it? Is there a big difference between the amount eaten in Canada and the amount eaten in the UK?

Re: Diet

Holy f*&k

I am one inch taller than you but almost 100 lbs heavier. I'll happily admit that I have never rocked the Jagger look.

Re: Guitar Mad People

It is as light as a light thing and "fits" just like a strat does. I could imagine that I could play for hours with it standing up and not have any issues.

Sat down, it feels very thin when...

Re: How to bring my Violin - UK to Canada

You may be able to take it onboard with you but, in any event, I would purchase a hard case for it.

Re: Dual British/Canadian citizen considering moving back to Canada

Re: Ukraine flight PS752 crash

If Iran hadn't attacked the US interests in the region, the US wouldn't have responded, and so on.

However, to blame the shooting down of a civilian airliner by "accident" by Iran on the US is not...
