Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

Well, let us start with this. Why did you originally report this as

Well, obviously, I am crushed by your opprobrium. Should I join you in the Are Salaries Lower thread to see how it is done properly?

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

Don't say that! Think off all the poor colonial types out here who haven't had the good fortune to have been born in Britain. If the Brits stop emigrating Canada will fall to pieces within a few...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

An ad hominem argument is a logical fallacy. If I said, "Oink is a fool, so you can't place any value on his opinions about Canada," it would not be logical. Just because someone is a fool doesn't...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

All well and good. But it is not exactly news that immigrants benefit the economy because:

In the trades the legal minimum of 2 weeks for the first five years and three weeks thereafter is the norm. I don't hear anyone complaining about it. It never comes...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

a) You negotiate. This is the legal minimum but there is nothing stopping you agreeing a better deal with your employer.

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

You can make a decent argument for these. In the 60s and 70s Canada had two visionary liberal leaders (both big and small L) who transformed Canada from a colonial backwater to a modern liberal...

Re: Why do you want to move to Canada

I wouldn't chose to walk about the center of, say, Woking, at chucking out time on a Friday evening - but fair enough.
