Would anyone that wanted to immigrate to Canada really care anyway?

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

What? While I accept the US generally screws up everything it attempts to do on the world stage, I fail to comprehend how EU employment law can be blamed on the US.

I was thinking of legislation...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

If I recall, and I may be wrong, the poster stated that Britain had massively contributed to the world. I asked him/her in what way and s/he didn't reply. You then gave art as an example. I don't...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

So I take it that films contribute massively to the world. Great, now I know what to send those starving people when Save the Children runs its next commercial about starving kids in Africa - a...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

I am not suggesting anything. You were the one that said that the country is full of chavs. I asked who the parents of such chavs are. If they are everywhere, surely, the parents must be your...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

Jon, my post wasn't particularly aimed at you and I apologise if you feel that it was, that wasn't the intention.

The "fit" thing, though, IMHO, is a relevant consideration. I am sure that it...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

OK, let's talk about it. Are you seriously suggesting that a First Nations doctor would have more difficulty in obtaining a position at the local hospital than a white "middle class" one? If so,...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

Didn't John Major come from a relatively shitty background.

In my experience, those that complain about their ability to "get on" on the basis that their accent, their colour, their height, the...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

Who is responsible for breeding all these chavs?

Are they not your neighbours' children (evidently they are not your children):confused:

I used to live in Reading. Reading with mountains and a beach would still be bloody awful. I have never been to Vancouver but if all it is is Reading with mountains and a beach, I am not too sure...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

In my experience, Canadians simply wouldn't believe you. I have found that it is not the case of being able to convince Canadians that a system is better, it's the ability to convince them that...

Sure, but then they are idiots. When I lived in England, I would have liked a view of the Snowdon Horseshoe from my living room window. Trouble is, I was in the wrong country.:rofl:

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

I have never been able to understand this objection. How many people regularly travel more than an hour away from where they live in the UK? Most people will spend more time travelling to and from...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

My. my, we are xenophobic?

It cuts both ways though and, other than the immigration one, I doubt many UK voters care about any of those and there are, of course, reciprocal rights that British...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

Most people in the UK do not vote in National Elections. The EU, as I am sure you are aware, is made up of sovereign states that have agreed to "hand over" certain powers to the "federal"...
