Sky is the limit for visible minorities in Canada, no different than in USA,
just google Michael Lee-Chin.....he started off very poor and became a billionaire in Canada
.
He is Asian and Black.Not sure what he says his idenity is but every Canadians go to guy is Michael lee Chin which again show how much many Canadians are clueless when it comes to minorities.
Micheal Lee Chin made most of his wealth in Jamaica. Jamaica claims him to but I know officially he is Canadian but thats not my point.
This is my point:
Tyler Perry owns one of the largest movie studios in North America.Not quite a billionaire but very close.Its not just about wealth its about power.He single handily has put more minorities behind the scenes and is a major player in Hollywood.

Its so fascinating when I encounter posters on here who apparently are are so upset with what I have to say,that they go out of there way to find a way to let me know and others in public forum to gain some support for themselves.A seemingly attempt to dissuade a poster from posting something they dont agree with.
I would think if you take issues with a post,you would find a more intelligent and more well thought out response to discredit my remarks.
Perhaps sense you cant you and others find it easier to "bully".
Not a good look at all but if you think it works for you,lol,be my guest.Please.I implore you to get the help you need.A mind is terrible thing to waste

LOL.really? Why didnt you say Florida?Oh yeh thats right.Half your country is there much of the year.

.
Well, Mississippi is similar enough to most of Florida in terms of temperatures, and the "climate-concerned" people here seem to think that Florida is just fine in this respect.

Yes.It was American Cheese because we were cooking hamburgers at his house.They didnt have Kaft Slices.It was a Canadian brand only I had never heard of.
Vancouver is quite different Im sure so you may not have the same things.
It was only 20 slices and was 4 or 5 dollars.Here where Im at it about 2 something for a similar size.
I bought eggs also and it too was expensive comparatively speaking.I think over $3 for a dozen.
The Midwest and Southern US tends to be much cheaper than the West and Northeast

The Dairy industry is "thriving" in Canada because its protected from competition from outside of the country.This was big sticking point in recent negotiations between Canada and the US.

https://www.factcheck.org/2017/04/u-...dairy-dispute/
No it wasn't " American Cheese". You do know that we are talking about a type of cheese, called American Cheese, not cheese made in America?

Google " American Cheese Canada" and you will find Americans in Canada looking specifically for this cheese. It isn't available, and IF it were it would be labelled " American Cheese" whether it was mad in the US or not.

The dairy industry in the US is hurting and yet you have both subsidies and a very restricted imporing rules.

If Canada doesn't produce it.

By me the yellow version doesn't sell.... so most offer just the white in our deli's.

Of course ..... Canada better and best. America bad and worst.....
Google American Cheese, the type. It's a processed cheese. I didn't say American Cheese, meaning cheese made in America was crap, I said the type " American Cheese" is crap.

Canadian fast food restaurants use only Canadian made cheese. No hormones, including the US chains that are here.

https://yourquestions.mcdonalds.ca/a...ese-come-from/

Canadians can buy all sorts of imported cheeses from around the world including the US. The US cheeses sold here though, are mostly specialty made cheese, not processed cheese. This company's cheeses were available at my local store for a bit, but they stopped carrying it.

https://beehivecheese.com/pages/our-culture

It should be noted that the cheese company states "No cow is ever administered artificial growth hormones, most commonly referred to as rBGH or rBST. In the event that a cow becomes ill, the cow is separated from the heard and treated. The cow is then held until she’s well and then reintroduced into the herd once her milk tests clear for antibiotics. "

Not sure if you are genuine or being sarcastic but either way for you probably very little.For many minorities for which I am one, it means quite a bit although its not the only important thing
Dont expect you to understand.

I've been to a ton of American cities but only been to Vancouver, Canada, so hard to say. But Vancouver seemed to have a better quality of life than any American city I've visited.
