Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

I did say the point was fair - not the means of making it. However, if you had to ride this route on a daily basis you would probably have a little more tolerance - believe me :)
I am really trying...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

Funny. I was on a bus in Toronto today which serves a route that is really busy. Always big lines, packed buses, long wait times, those lovely ancient buses that Toronto has. It ended up absolutely...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

This is one of the most offensive posts I have ever read on here. However you want to dress it up this is racism. Why don't you move back to the UK and join the BNP - this is clearly the rhetoric you...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

I thought the thread was dead, oh well...:)

What do you think the UK has lost? I wasn't around in 1963, but certainly see it as a much better place now than when I was growing up in the 70's, and...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

Expensive and poor, never a good combination. Many of the serious incidents in Toronto also happen in one might be considered one borough, and again there is no doubt poverty plays its part. The...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

No, I wasn't suggesting this, and my comment was a little flippant and intended to be a little tongue in cheek. Perhaps not appropriate here. I am not an expert in this field - either in terms of...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

Are you talking about White Rock? A real ethnic melting pot :) :)

My elderly parents always loved White Rock, it reminded them of England in the 1950s.

We could of course talk about being First...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

Again, my experience is different. My 'non-white' friends never suffered from any racial abuse and this in Norfolk which is not noted for its ethnic diversity. I am quite happy to accept that people...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

My point is that the fact that you may have witnessed these (and I am curious about how frequently) does not make them generally common nor it the case that they are accepted in Britain (whatever...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

Hmmm. I love generalisations.

There are approximately 12,276,600 kids in the UK under the age of 16. Not sure what you mean by most, but using a range of 51% to say 80%, you are stating that...
