Every time I travel and come home, I am thrilled to be back in Canada, the real best country in the world.
However, Europe is more sophisticated, and the US has more business activity.
but as a place to live. this is it!
The only thing that disgusts me in Canada is stupid conservatives, like you. The major economic problems are related to the American 2008 depression, thanks Bush....
Dude, don't blame Bush for 2008. It was the Clinton administration that removed the last roadblocks that allowed the robber barons on Wall Street to pull off what they did.
This all started way back during the Reagan years and every administration since, whether Rep or Dem, has had a hand in what happened in 2008 by altering legislation and laws.

Seriously, it was a right-wing agenda to not have any regulations.

Clinton was just trying to be co-operative.. A dumb idea for democrats to go along with
Robber-Baron-Republican ideas.

Thankfully, Canada has some good reg. in place. Harper and his REform buddies ala Fraser Institue would like to have an American approach. "Letting the crooks do whatever they want." " That's real capitalism".

Sounds like you to have got a lot of propaganda via Liberal/NDP! Europe ,is that why there is so much economic problems because its such a jewel! If the above mentioned items bother you,,,than YOU are without doubt in the WRONG PLACE! Why are you here,what kind of MORON lives in a place where so many things disgust him...you must be a brain surgeon
Canada does not disgust me.. Stupid Conservatives disgust me who would try to turn Canada into a

similar dump as is the US.

What kind of a Moron does not just go to a place they think is good. That would be you.

The Canada of today was built by the ideas, primarily of Liberal governments.

Don't like it.... head for the 49h parallel.. They love right-wing idiots across the border.
you can vote for Newt Gingrich next time.. and Sarah Palin.Go for it....

Yeah, like offshoring to avoid taxes, mass immigration, failed multiculturalism, failed bilingualism and racist policies.

The racist policies are in the US. The mass immigration is the Americans now coming to Canada.

Off shoring is what American companies do when they go to China...

Yeah dude, Canadians without dual Can/US citizenship vote in American elections all the time. But since you have a problem with reality, let's take a look shall we?

Paul Martin was the head of Canada Steamship Lines before joining the Liberal govt. During his time there he registered ALL of CSL's floating stock to an overseas country. Which is funny because lake boats aren't ocean-going vessels.
Other Canadian corporations have also off-shored because we as consumers want lower prices and stock holders want higher profits.

The mass immigration is NOT Americans coming to Canada. Hell, do you have ANY idea how difficult it is for an educated American or Northern European to emigrate to Canada these days?
The mass immigration that Canada has IS racist and it IS the Liberals (and NDP) that make it racist by insisting that every Canadian from non-European ancestry be hyphenated, eg: Indo-Canadian, Asian-Canadian, Muslim-Canadian, etc. I haven't seen any calls to hyphenate Canadians whose ancestry comes from Germany, or Holland, or Italy or the Ukraine or any of the UK countries.
SO why do 3rd world immigrants have to be hyphenated?
That's what I mean by racist.

So no, I'm not confused. I'm just not ignorant of reality nor blinded by partisanship

RE: Move to Canada? It's Not That Easy.
..... Different countries have different laws related to their population numbers. Let there be freedom of movement among peoples, provided everyone concerned complies strictly with all of the involved legal requirements. Consider also the religious habits/customs and their influence, if any, on existing populations of countries.
It should be no problem if you are a white American!

On the other hand, if you are black, brown or yellow, it may not be that easy.
This color coded rule applies to all the English speaking Anglophile countries I am told.
You are welcome to applied - but only if you skin is white.

You've been told wrong. Canada takes in over 250,000 LEGAL immigrants every year. 30% alone come from China, India and the Phillipines. Very few come from the US or Western European countries.
For some of us, it's not the location the people come from, it's the ridiculous numbers that are permitted in every year. It doesn't give time for new comers to settle in as there is a constant influx of an average of 5000 new, legal immigrants every week. Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal together end with about 85%-90% of the total.

When you factor in illegal immigrants that are permitted to remain, the total intake jumps to 300,000+ per year.

In fact, if your skin is white and you come from an industrialized country, you'll have a harder time getting in unless you've already been sponsored by an employer that's planning on hiring you. Or you're independently wealthy.

A smart American wouldn't bother getting his butt shot off for a bunch of congressmen who own shares in the Industrial Military Complex corporations. Their business is war. and ordinary citizens are the fighting/dead employees.
Their propaganda makes people believe they are fighting for freedom. They are fighting for
corporate profits.

Canada got the smart guys. Many of the poor dumb guys came back in body bags.

Get a brain people.

Canada has enough Brits, Americans, Anglos... It needs more international people to better function in the new Global world.
I see many Asians, Blacks and South Americans where I live. They are making Canada an interesting place to live.
The Anglos can stay in England, the US or wherever. They are mainly just racists anyway.

However, I have met a lot of Americans who have moved here recently. Some are quite Liberal,
but unfortunately, some are here because there are fewer Black people.

It was a Republican iniyiative/set up... Clinton was just trying to be cooperative. Hopefully, Obama will not make those mistakes.
Take the REpublican ideas like" more tax breaks for the rich" and shove them up their butts.

All Republican ideas are destructive to America,,,, How did the majority of the wealth end up in a few hands??

I like that, Clinton was just trying to cooperate by allowing the near destruction of America's economy.
So I guess Obummer was just trying to cooperate with the REPs when he handed all that military grade weaponry to Mexican drug gangs?
You know, the same shmuck who is now trying to gain traction for gun controls in the US.

You probably mean fight for it.

You usually are fighting to rip off and pillage other countries

Your politician's propaganda tries to make you believe you are fighting for your freedom instead.

Get smart.... The smart guys came to Canada. Welcome...

More and more Yanks are buying property in his city.

Why don't you buy US real estate instead. It's a lot cheaper.

Plus this is a "socialist" country, according to you..

With Universal Health care.... the seeds of communism..

You better run for your lives.

You have a Mexican border problem..

We have an American border problem....

I would rather have the Mexicans, at least they are hard workers.

Arabs would definitely be a step up for this country compared to whatever people like you are.

That's the way it should be. most of t he "white guys' from industrialized countries" are usually running away from some problem.. If they can't behave there, we don't want them. Lots are running away from Litigation. particularly those from the US of A where they love to sue for a hobby. They will just cause more problems here. Otherr immigrants come here to work.. hard.. we need them...
