Re: Construction worker retraining options?

Still in construction, but maybe electrical/plumbing. The drywalling just always seems to be the bottom of the heap with no room to progress.

Re: Getting married in the UK, while PR in Canada

Re: Deep Cove and areas nearby

If you mean Deep Cove NS, then I'd have though that late teen kids would want to be nearer the city.
