Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

Modern housing in the UK tends to be rubbish. Strucutrally sound, but uninspiring drivel. Most 'heritage' housing in the UK would probably be the streets and streets of terraces built up for the...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

In terms of production, there's a lot going on in Canada, but cultural influence on ideas and subject matter, the UK would be ahead, but this is always an area that Britain likes to big itself up...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

6th in terms of GDP, but that's not necessarily manufacturing. Banking and finance, I would imagine to be a large sector of that and it's currently being propped up by the govt. One of the basic...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

I'd definetly agree on this, but I do think it's becoming less important as there's a global homogeny occurring, thanks to cultural imperialism coupled with the internet.

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

Again, the same can be said about the UK (especially London) when compared with other parts of the world. Good quality food is very expensive. I also worked for a fashion brand for 5 1/2 years and...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

History accounts for nothing and has little impact on quality of life.



Surely you're talking about England here?

My view on life in London is that it's impersonal, very hard work,...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

Actually, I totally forgot the time some kids threw a lump of concrete at us in the park and tried to steal our dog. And the friend who got beaten up for being gay and another friend who was...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

Yeah not great and not the only borough with problems. Sure London is not all like that but anywhere close to the centre is more expensive, anything further out costs to travel (time and money)....

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

But Hackney is not a large city, it is one of 32 London boroughs. When you have multiple incidents on the same weekends, 15 mins walk from where you live, it does affect you. Hackney is also quite an...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

I can remember in Hackney, there were stabbings and shootings over many weekends. We lived there and we were aware of how much was going on. We moved south of the river and my girlfriend has been...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

Brighton is dirty and the beach is terrible. It's become quite a stressful, overcrowded place. There are better places to hit the coast.
