Re: Will you still emigrate when the Canadian recession kicks in?

We have a flat tax of 10% at the provincial level in Alberta which hasn't worked imo. What has happened is that the rich pay less and the poor pay more. The disparity is so great that it has led to...

Re: Will you still emigrate when the Canadian recession kicks in?

Of the Americans I've met here, I haven't met any that came in under the skilled worker programme. There was an American at my citizenship ceremony and he'd married a Canadian for example. I...

Re: Will you still emigrate when the Canadian recession kicks in?

These were the sorts of views put forward in the US around 1812 and during the Civil War when a lot of slaves were escaping to Canada. Didn't happen then, won't happen now. It's a really old...

Re: Will you still emigrate when the Canadian recession kicks in?

I have to say I was highly suspicious of my citizenship ceremony because there weren't any Chinese or Indians at all but there were loads when I took the test. I'd say more than half were Chinese. ...

Re: Will you still emigrate when the Canadian recession kicks in?

It will never happen because the US is so much larger in population than other North American countries, and those countries would fear a loss of sovereignty, plus Americans by and large are pretty...

Re: Will you still emigrate when the Canadian recession kicks in?

Re: Will you still emigrate when the Canadian recession kicks in?

Look at the housing prices in Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary etc. and compare them with most of the US. I'm not saying it's universally the case but it is often brought up as an issue when trying to...

Re: Will you still emigrate when the Canadian recession kicks in?

Re: Will you still emigrate when the Canadian recession kicks in?
