Bitcon, I feel for you. I am curious what is so bad about Canada? I know you guys have gone to a lot of socialist policies but is it really so bad that you want to get out of there?
Income tax up to 50% and of 14.5% sales tax. Being told that your wrong for not supporting same sex marriage or anti-American, yes I know you gave that there but at least most of you agree that it shouldn't be legal and there's alot less support for anti-Americans. Our military sucks, the main reason I want to leave is because I want to serve. Guns are pretty much totally illegal, only rifles, shotguns and handguns and they're all heavily retricted as in the barrel of the handgun must be 105mm or more, about 4.13 inches, (don't ask me about storage, it's even worse). Jean Chretien as Prime Minister. The NDP (commies with a different name). In Saskatchewan the Bible has been declared hate literature. Gov't health care that doesn't work. I've already been denied promt service twice (one of those I was almost completely denied service) and I'm only 18, I dont want to know how many times it's going to be denied me in my life time. Don't tell me to go pay for it because that's illegal in Canada. I could go on but I think the list is long enough. This isn't the type of place I want to live and most people here don't want to change it so my choice is to leave.

Their gun control policies have cost umpteen times more than they had planned, and neighbors are allowed/encouraged to turn in neighbors for not turning in illegal guns...or not registering the ones they have.
Their socialized medicine is pretty bad I hear... I would say yeah, it's pretty bad. I sure wouldn't go there. I'd have to sell my new toy.

It honestly depends on what Province and specifically what City you live in. You can forget the cesspool of Central Canada where their bogus laws come from. I live in Kelowna, B.C. and our mayor outright refused to have a Gay Pride Parade. The homosexuals took him the UNELECTED Human Rights Commission where they ruled against him. Did he bow to their wishes? NO!! There has NOT been a Gay Pride Parade here since and the mayor in question is STILL the mayor. Elected again. This foul putrid legislation only passed by the speaker of the house breaking a tie. Several chicken$hit Liberals whose political life depended on a no vote stayed home. Several other Liberals broke party ranks and voted NO. The Canadian Alliance of course voted against such depravity. Good luck trying to criminalize scripture. Incidentally, last year I was given a copy of a piece of secret legislation that was passed very quietly in the United States by the wonderful Janet Reno including Evangelical Christians in cults. There was one more piece to the legislation that brought some criminality to it. I will find it and post it. It may take me a day or two but I will find that. The more Liberals there are ANYWHERE the more of this you are going to see. They are on the rampage everywhere. I was aghast that Judge Moore was dismissed and the Ten Commandments were removed from a public building in a SOUTHERN State. The infection is spreading everywhere. As Christians, we must stand AGAINST this depravity regardless of consequences.
