(Lefties)Moving To Canada? Choosing The Right Destination For You
EscapeArtist.com ^ | February 2005 | Thelma O Connor

Posted on 02/17/2005 2:43:03 PM PST by The Loan Arranger

You’ve decided to move to Canada but before you go you must choose a destination in which to settle. Canada, with over 10 million square kilometers of territory, is the second largest country in the world, with many wonderful cities, towns and rural communities beckoning the newcomer. The vastness of this country makes choosing a destination all that more difficult. Do you choose to live near the ocean, in the mountains, in a large city, on the prairies, or in the lake regions? Suddenly, choosing somewhere seems overwhelming!

So how do you go about deciding which place is best for you and your family? You might imagine that most newcomers would suggest that economic factors were the chief reason for their choice of final destination, perhaps even climate or the existence of a particular ethnic community in an area. --snip-- Choosing to move to where your relatives live, or picking a city that is well known might seem like an obvious and logical thing to do under the circumstances, but it may not always be the wisest choice. Strategically choosing your settlement destination may bring greater rewards in the short and longer term.

There are many areas in Canada where business is booming but there are severe shortages of skilled trades people. For example, a recent TV broadcast in Alberta highlighted the desperate need for more than 40 electricians, welders, meat cutters and construction workers in rural communities throughout the province.

The ironic part is that there's basically a 99% chance that no matter where in Canada they go, they will be within a few hours drive of the US border. Unless they want to live in uninhabited tundra, that is.

I love seeing a NEED for an article like this to be printed. I am still waiting for the mass exodus from Hollywierd to Europe or some such. Wasn't Barbara S. promising to get out of here? I kept my end of the bargain and voted for Bush, then she broke her end of the deal... I should sue.

The problem is, they and their leftist nonsense will be as unwelcome in most Canadian rural communities as they would be on Free Republic.

EXCELLENT point. That's the one thing that will need to be addressed when these puke puddles ooze their way across the border. They want their little Socialist paradise? Fine. But, it must come with the caveat that, if they are voluntarily expatriating themselves for the reason of political incompatibility with their former countrymen, they forfeit any further right to participate in the domestic democratic process for as long as they reside on foreign soil.

Hey, there is a nice town for them to go too. It is called Churchill. I believe it is just within the Arctic circle. They can play with the Polar bears whenever they want to.

From what I've heard on the many news reports about people leaving the country (and the media like to make it sound like the best and brightest are all leaving and America is sunk without them-bah!) at least some of these people are talking about getting Canadian citizenship and making sure they never again have to pay taxes here or be called an American. They want Canadian passports. If so, obviously that takes care of the voting issue.

LOL, these are exactly the kind of people who won’t be coming. I rather expect professional students, mediocre artist, screeching feminist and various other forms of perpetual adolescents.

They should all go to Nelson, BC where we dumped our refuse last time around.

Apologies to all Canadian Freepers, but it looks like you are going to get more of our pollution.

You won't notice them. We're suggesting they relocate to Frozen Moose, Manitoba.

You are absolutely correct. We should advise all disgruntled Lefties to instead go to Singapore and be sure to take lots of dope along and smoke it in public while demonstrating in favor of bringing Communism to Singapore.

"the desperate need for more than 40 electricians, welders, meat cutters and construction workers"

What about professional protesters?

I'm with you FP. The last thing we need is a bunch of Leftist lunatics settling in Canada! What has Canada ever done to us???

Hey, everybody! Encourage these morons to move somewhere they'll fit in--like North Korea. They'll love the political system, and they'll get a big kick out of Kim Jon-Il (especially when they start protesting).

Actually, Churchill (Manitoba) is well below the arctic circle--it's about the same latitude as Juneau, but has more bracing winter weather, I believe. Excellent views of Hudson Bay.

The prime consideration for these emigrants should be to get as far away from the U.S. as feasible. Yellowknife, NWT, seems a good choice--centrally located and it's on a lake. If they can't take the small-town environment, they can try St. John's, Newfoundland, which is closer to France than it is to Crawford, Texas.

Actually, according to the second item that came up on a Google search, he was born in Lynn Lake, on the other side of northern Manitoba from Churchill.

Thanks. And.....if they try to come back, hang them from a big oak tree on the Canadian side of the border.
