Re: Your observations when visiting UK from Canada !

More googling Maryland? You'll go blind. An overcrowded train, prison or house, is not the same thing as an "overcrowded" country. Do try to stop going off on irrelevant tangents.

Re: Your observations when visiting UK from Canada !

Re: Your observations when visiting UK from Canada !

Re: Your observations when visiting UK from Canada !

So, you only lived in Canada for 7 years, and haven't lived there for 16 years. You haven't lived in the UK for 14 years. I suggest that you are not really qualified to talk about what it is like...

Re: Your observations when visiting UK from Canada !

On dentists and doctors, personal experiences vary.

Our GP in Edmonton is much better than our GP here. And, I don't just mean her manner. She diagnosed a serious condition my husband was...

Well that's a decision made. I'm retiring to Afghanistan. Should be able to get away from the crowds there.

Re: Your observations when visiting UK from Canada !

As far I know, China has not, and...

And you can bash contributors to this forum from anywhere too, even Maryland, which isn't even Britain or Canada.

Re: Your observations when visiting UK from Canada !

Re: Your observations when visiting UK from Canada !

I can only speak for myself. I'm married to a Canadian, with joint British nationality, who spent 30 years living in the UK. When he was made redundant, in 2004, he was unable to find another job...

Re: Your observations when visiting UK from Canada !

No, I'm in Alberta, but the thread does not say "Vancouver pros", it says "Canada pros", so as far as the thread is concerned I live here.

Re: Your observations when visiting UK from Canada !

Electric and phone lines buried underground...
