Tried two ltrs with Canadians....not ruling it out, but am very skeptical about their intentions. I doubt any would ever leave other than for a vacation. Just seems to be how it is. Plus, what a comittment on their part to sponser a person-geez. I am willing if the right one was honest enough. Time either takes it's toll, or brings you closer together on that one. The latter is the norm I think.

Years ago I considered moving from Canada to the US, I had an incentive, but now it's not so practical.

From message 830:
We have high taxes cause Canada's a large country with a relatively small population.
It costs $$$ to maintain that infrastructure. Canada's not owned as part of the British Commonwealth...

I lived in Canada for a while...long ago in galaxy far, far away LOL. I spent two years in Goose Bay, Labrador when I was in high school ('63-'65) and loved it. Of course at that time there was no road connecting Labrador to the rest of Canada, access only by air or sea. But it was a wonderful place to be a kid and I had a lot of Canadian friends. There was an American high school and a Canadian one. They regularly kicked our tails at Hockey (most of us had never skated before!) and we would regularly thrash them at Basketball. But we all skiied, hiked, camped and sang together (that's where I became a folksinger). I've visited a few times in the century or so since then and have always enjoyed it. Indeed, I have considered moving there a time or two for the beauty and the friendly people. The cold doesn't bother me...I lived for 16 years in Alaska LOL. I'll have to hoist a LaBatt's in tribute to our Canadian cousins tonight. And yes, there are many beautiful Canadiennes on PoF...and not a few in my fading memories.

Well, considering I was all set to move to the Czech Republic to be with the woman at one time, I think I could handle moving to a country I could drive to.

Heck yes. I'm considering moving to Canada anyway, so if I were to marry someone there that would simplify the paperwork. Generally, I wouldn't move for a just maybe relationship though, but a serious one I'd consider (especially involving Canada).

Well, I've recently decided that all the smart and good looking guys are located IN Canada.

So if I met one online, and we got to that level of talking/wanting to be together officially, then it'd have to be a mutual agreement on where we would move. if he wanted to move to the US, then I'd be game for that. If he wanted to stay in Canada, I'd be game to move up there. It would all depend on HOW STRONG I felt for him, though. I'm not about to move somewhere and then get stranded because of a stupid arguement.

Tim Horton's vs. Krispy Kreme? Nope... Can't move to Canada.



...Actually...a Krispy Kreme location just opened up not far from where I work...I still prefer the taste of Timmy's coffee, but if your a connoisseur of donuts, by all means head to Krispy Kreme

I wouldn't have a problem moving to Canada ... I grew up in Ohio and lived in Germany for 10 years (that's like Southern Canada) the weather wouldn't bother me. I got really spoiled by the Socialized Medicine in Germany, so I'd be thrilled if I moved up there and could get the medical coverage.

The only problem would be finding work ... I have no clue if they recognize my nursing abilities there. I really should ask ... eh? I've seen some pretty desirable Canadian men on here ...

I am grateful to my Canadian friends that have served so well in a leading role in Afghanistan. I am grateful and respectfull to my Canadian friends that did not agree with my country's decision to invade Iraq. I am also grateful for my Canadian friends that are not consumed by stereotype and biased, rhetorical bites of history taken far out fo general context. I am also grateful to my Canadian friends capble of enough critical thinking to understand whatever our motivations for not entering the conflict until 1941 that without the addition of the industrial capacity of our then nation of 100,000 million and 12 million in Uniform that they'd of been speaking German by Christmas of 1943.

Odd a Canadian would note us as facist when the cycle has us turning left, not right. Who did you people just elect? LMFAO.

"Oh Canada!" You're whole other country...almost anyway. Love you!

Americans are no more Fascists than Canadians are, and if that has become the Description of the current US Politics & its President, I'd take that as nothing other than a Protest and a possible Desire for Change. PR flogging & Labeling during Elections usually goes a little overboard.

But I'll tell you this: I would not want your current political Line up of Candidates running our Economy or managing our Country. Its the worst & most sordid Lot in US History.

Politics aside, the American and Canadian People are pretty well much the same. I could not tell if I had an American among us, nor was anyone ever able to tell I was Canadian when in the US. Just a Line along the 49th ...

Oh, I would move for the right man, but not until we both visit each other's cities a few times first...assuming I am meeting him on here.

My daughter is grown, I would probably have better job opportunities elsewhere, but my job is one I can do anywhere. The man would have to be one helluva special person to get me to pack up and move for him, tho.

ok, i have lived in the states, LA,, and grew up across the river from Detroit, Windsor with a metro area of 450 th, has seen one police death, one since 1850
Detroit which is about a third the size of Toronto has more then 1000 gun related deaths, TO, 50 to 100 a year 'this is not a subtle cultural difference'.
We do not have a military presence in over 180 different countries in the world
We do take an active role in the world, while the US was still selling Hitler, munitions Canadian soldiers where in the thick of fighting
We where the first country to bring into being 'peace keeping' and have had an outstanding record in the world
We live up to our NATO obligations, we have been fighting and dieing in Afghanistan, our first casualties, were from American planes .
We are very far from being perfect, we are a country that has systematically turned its back on native affairs, aparthide was in fact based legally on the CDN, example
As far as being socialist, we are very very far from that,we belong to the developed countries of the world,all of them have housing, education, health care, no death penalty and so on....we are far less unionized, or socialistic then most EU countries
there are many many major cultural differences between our two countries
lol My aunt Clara would come over to visit us several times a week, she had a side arm in her glove compartment, and one in her bag, we never once locked our door

Metropolitan Detroit is slightly larger than Metropolitan Toronto, although the Core City is better than a Third of the Size. Just a different Distribution.

Post #891, I have stood shoulder to shoulder with Canadian service men. And I respect and am honored to have met and known them. As a US solder, I respect Canada as a neighbor and those men and women who have put themselves in harms way for love of country, even if not speciffically supporting a given conflict.

Racer71, you are very misinformed about health care in Canada. Very. I have lived in both places. It is way more expensive for health care in the U.S. You are very wrong about the quality of health care in Canada. My brother happens to be a Gastroenterologist. Canadians are better educated in their Universities. You actually have to have a very high GPA to get admittance into a Canadian University. There are quotas. To get into Sciences, you have to have a minimum of 86%, based on that particular year. Here in the U.S., you can buy a degree with a C average! The quality of education is no comparison to the education in Canada! Here, the majority of students can't pass the state exams! In Edmonton Catholic Schools, 75% of students are above proficiency levels!!!When I left Canada, I was paying $33 for 3 months of health care. University students have free health care & back then, anyone who made under $10,000. Canada takes care of their people. Unlike the U.S. who dump the poor on the streets of L.A. who don't have health care insurance. People here go into major debt if they get really sick. Watch "Sicko" by Michael Moore. I had a health insurance card that I would give to the pharmacist to receive prescription drugs. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A CO-PAY in Canada nor do we have to pay to use the Emergency in hospitals. We also can go to ANY doctor & ANY hospital that we choose!! No such thing in the U.S.! You need to check out your facts & research before spewing non-facts about Canada!

i like canada its people diversity and the fact that most problems that canadians complain about are actually quit trivial compareded to many other nations around the globe it has been rated as a top nation to live in by the united nations for several years. though ccanadians and americans share simularities canadians differ greatly when it comes to political social responsibilities than the states; we are often bombarded with u.s media such as cnn, fox, nbc, spokan news, tbs, etc more so than our own news so u.s politics sort of overshadow our own for instance the campaighns for obama. had more coverage than our recent election for stephan harper. so i think canadians cant help but get offended by some policies in the states and i think may share some of the same grievences as many other nations about some foreign policies.made in the last eight or so years however politics aside i feel amaricans come off as average ordinary people who are making it in the world the best they can and based on the few i had met maybe their is a bit to much demonization of u.s citizens
