Sybarite: Yeah, moving to a country that has nationally legalized same-sex marriage. That'll show 'em!


Meh, he'll overlook the nationally legalized same-sex marriage to escape the creeping horrors of socialism, such as nationalized health care and gun restrictions. It's not just about social issues, you know.

Cythraul: I've actually looked into Canada's immigration policies and naturalization requirements. And my reaction was, "yeah, I SO do not meet their standards."

Unless I'm misremembering their 'must have' list.


1) Can you milk a moose?
2) Can you drink 24 beers and still cook one pound of back bacon without burning yourself?
3) Do you love and respect the beaver?
4) Do you find anything Rick Mercer's says to actually be funny?
5) Do you think the Trailer Park boys is actually a documentary?

The best I can do for you is a 6 month work Visa. Americans always get tripped up by the beaver question. Canadians love and respect the beaver no matter what context the term is being used.

TheSteamingPile: please do not. we like to keep as much herp-a-derp south of the border as possible.


Isn't it "racist" and "xenophobic" if you don't want immigrants from south of the border?

TheMysticS: kimwim: If Rmoney wins, I don't think I want to live in a country that could elect such a person. If my grandmother could leave Poland to give her children and grandchildren a better future, I honor her memory by doing the same.

But it's hard to move to Canada. We looked into buying property last year. The only way to do it that we could see was to borrow money from a Canadian bank, and, we had to own property in the US that we had to go back to at the least every 6 months. The Canadian government didn't want us overstaying our welcome. So I don't know how one retires to Canada.

A problem I've been having, too.
We'll have to keep a residence here in the US. Fine by me. Pay dual citizenship taxes. Also fine by me.
Borrow from a Canadian bank? Ok.
Purchasing land anywhere in the Laurentians? Almost impossible.
Whatabout up near Calabogie?
Also difficult.
May have to just rent here and there.

/if you come up with anything let me know!


I forgot-
Is there an exchange-senior program?
For every snow escapee in Florida and Arizona- can we send a US citizen up there?

Seems only fair.
I promise I'll come back to the US for healthcare. And bring cheap American smokes! (not anymore!)

WhippingBoy: Immigration to Canada should be a graduated process:
- the first year you're here, you have to live in the most northern town in Canada
- every year after that, you're allowed to move slightly South
- by the time your children's children are born, they'll be allowed in the good parts - Vancouver, Toronto (snerk!), etc.


Your shenanigans -- I'm having Nunavut.

My sister's way ahead of the curve. She moved to a southern suburb of Vancouver and commutes across the border every day because she has a telecommuting job that requires her to be physically somewhere in the US. Her hubby got a COO job for a Canadian mining company that has most of its mines in the US and Mexico but they required him to move to Canada and become Canadian. She's getting an absentee ballot for her place in Washington to specifically vote against Hobama Dohbama Slobama and I didn't have the heart to remind her about the electoral college and the fact she might as well be pissing into the wind.

Actor/musician/celebrity disagrees with republican policies: "Who cares what some hollywood type thinks?"
Actor/musician/celebrity agrees with republican policies: "Lets put him on TV to show that the cool people like us."

To be honest, the only opinion I care about from Stephen Baldwin is what he's going to do to get Jayne Cobb and Firefly back on the air, a plan which would preferably involve Wash coming back to life.

Adam Baldwin is Best Baldwin.


What? Don't tell me I got them confused again.
Hmm, according to wikipedia Stephen Baldwin is best known for his role in The Flintstons in Viva Rock Vegas. Let me change my comment: I don't care about his opinions at all.

While I do respect the beaver, I can relate much more with Wally. How does that rank me on Canuk-O-Scale?

\Actually already lived in Canada so they'll probably welcome me back with open arms, damn Snow Mexicans and their creepy politeness.

I guess these people didn't notice when the people claiming they'd do this because they were left-wing and didn't like Bush (which at least made some degree of logical sense) were universally derided as stupid?

Yeah, not helping by doing the same thing but adding that you'd move to a country generally further to the left over us electing a president slightly to the left.
