I saw it too. I was annoyed that all they put for the Maritimes was that "people talk funny". Surely they could have mentioned fish, potatoes, Anne of Green Gables and beaches

That should have been limited to Newfoundland with the addition of "people who eat baby seals"

Choose a location - Working in Canada (http://www.workingincanada.gc.ca/report-eng.do?action=search_province&source=widget5382&no c=2114 - broken link)

Check those links I sent you. I'm guess you're American, which means you can benefit from a 3 year temporary work visa and your credentials don't have to be recognized for you to start working.

As soon as you land a job, it'll be a piece of cake to immigrate permanently.

Is there a particular region/city where you want to settle? Some places have a provincial nominee programme which makes it easier to immigrate if you plan to settle in said province.

I have a graduate degree a doctorate, at this time I'm retired form my profession and I'm a writer...my husband is retired business owner . I think we could go back to school ...but at this point in our lives it is little odd. We would rather open a small coffee shop in Canada and play classical music sip coffee and encourage local artists to come and hang their painting on the walls!

Default I like Clayton the English tutor...Montreal

I'm a mature woman who has been coming across Clayton the English tutor on & off; I feel attracted to him, but am not sure how he feels about me...we see each other at Depanneur Le Pick Up...a few days ago he offered to "get me a coffee" and when I showed up at Depanneur Le Pick Up he was gone...I suspect that there may have been a misunderstanding, but am too much of a chicken to ask him about it...Clayton, feel free to invite me again!
Thanks for helping me communicate with Clayton the English tutor.

That sounds really cool. I hope you are able to make this dream into a successful reality. There is a programme, {Still in effect?} where a would be immigrant gets fast approval when they are bringing X numbers of dollars to Canada to invest. You might look into that.

Default (lack of) Bus Hygiene in Vancouver

Is it possible to force bus passengers to have bathed in the past 2 weeks to board busses here? Perhaps we could have some sort of car-wash for people one has to enter to board. Lowering the fare to $1 and then enforcing it for EVERYONE might fix things. Don't see why taxes should subsidize public transit for crack heads and prostitutes to go from score to score.

Hey if that's too much, how about at least kicking off people that spit phlegm on it?
