jossy26:Yes. It also gives the same benefit as ASET in Alberta. Some employes/ jobs would require a CET or Asct designation.

DexterousOne:I know we have our failings as a people but really?, that your statement right there is just wow
|Re: Living In Canada/Life As A Canadian Immigrant Part 2 by etrange: 9:22am On Oct 23|
Why are you still resisting the the urge to use the word 'monkey' when the bolded statement above has contextually done justice to your line of thought?
I appreciate the fact that we blacks have a long way to go and we don't seem to even be in the right direction but we must desist from this attitude of self defamation. It is internalised racism and that is a terrible complex. We're not where we want to be, referring to ourselves (yourself inclusive) as animals will not, in any way, take us there. I am not an animal, I am an African and I'm sure the Canadian government knows that, that's why they granted me permanent residence in their country.
|Re: Living In Canada/Life As A Canadian Immigrant Part 2 by etrange: 9:51am On Oct 23|
I don't wish to proceed any further. Let's just say your Africa is not mine because the Africa you know is the people around you. My own Africa does not consist of animals/monkeys. They are doctors, engineers, programmers, lawyers, teachers, etc. They are loving mothers and fathers. They are people that have and acknowledge their limitations but also have great potentials. They refuse to identify as animals even with their shortcomings. They have travelled far and wide and they know that all human races have their own limitations; some are just better off than others. They are full of life and hope and they will not see themselves through the eyes of others. They will not let the activities of some define the entire continent. The Western world is competing to have them in their countries. They are my Africa.
No nation ever made it in history by calling themselves names. None.

It's all good
You can believe what you want.
But it does not change the fact on the ground
Nigeria is so good yet there is a mass exodus of both skilled and unskilled people
Africa is so good yet most of the societies are pig stys?
All the best in all your endeavors as you leave a failed country

Truth in its raw, undiluted and purest form. It's easy to 'speak positively' when you're not directly affected by the events in this joke of a Country.

If possible, I'd like this post 1 million times. @bolded you have said it all
|Re: Living In Canada/Life As A Canadian Immigrant Part 2 by DexterousOne(m): 11:17am On Oct 23|
As a matter of fact
Most of us here are not
If we are facing the short end of the stick like most Nigerians
We will not even bother running the express entry program in the first place
Even those of us fleeing
Is it not because of the dilapidated mess that Nigeria has become (which btw is largely in part due to the illiterate; unexposed and barbaric way of most Nigerian )
I refuse to delude myself
It's clear for all to see.
Most of Africa and Africans conduct themselves no different from animals
|Re: Living In Canada/Life As A Canadian Immigrant Part 2 by Kaycee54321(m): 11:33am On Oct 23|
This is the truth. It's the sad but bitter truth. I believe in Self Love and all that but the fact is that the African Society is not something to be proud of. Imagine a situation where a statesman has the temerity to come to the public and say that a Snake swallowed monetary funds.
It goes to show you how lowly the citizens and individuals are rated. I Love that I'm black but the fact remains that Africa or rather at least Nigeria (where I have personal experience) is only good to be celebrated from afar and not within.

If someone calls you a monkey/animal and you contest it, and the person comes back to tell you it's self denial then he's actually insisting you're a monkey but just denying it. Africa is not such a great continent. We all want to run away. All true. But I refuse to be tagged animal or monkey metaphorically or otherwise. That's derogatory and unacceptable.

Will you also tell the white man "this is true" when he calls you or any of your loved ones a monkey? You guys are missing the point. The dude I quoted had every reason to be mad at Africa. His position was right and perfect. But his post called us monkeys/animals. That's a tag that every reasonable person should reject outrightly. That we are in the abroad today does not make us less African and if we're not monkeys or animals, I think it's unjust for him to call us animals. Feel free to point out all my flaws as an African but I'm not going to be tagged an animal for any reason whatsoever. That's derogatory and I'll be surprised if you don't see it that way
|Re: Living In Canada/Life As A Canadian Immigrant Part 2 by Kaycee54321(m): 3:37pm On Oct 23|
I clearly understand where you're coming from. It's actually derogatory but I dare say you could blame it on frustration because the entire situation is sickening. Sometimes, you see things that make you wonder why you're even part of the failed society in the first place. The 'animal' and 'monkey' tag is just borne out of frustration.
The other day I saw a documentary about a guy complaining that he was deported for the seemingly harmless reason that he was caught pissing on the road while possessing an overstayed visa...
Things like this can just make you scream 'Oh, my God, Africans are animals'

There is no justifiable reason to call or liken any human being to an animal, no reason atall.
I sincerely hope that you understand @etrange's point of view.
Nigeria, and Africa as a continent, may not be where it should be, that does not give anyone the basis to use derogatory words to describe your fellow human being.
Have a great day.

Baba how are we going to fix Nigeria? The problem isn't our leaders, that's an over simplification. I think the problem is in everyone of us, there is something about our culture that makes it not matter who is president or governor. The same old shit, would still go on regardless because we are cultured the same. It explains why born Canadians of Nigerian descent are ideologically very different from their parents.

einsteino:This is a question far beyond my level. I don't even blame or direct my anger at the leaders anymore, because they are just a representation of the people. They are not aliens. It would be nice If there was a way bad Nigerians could be purged of everything evil like corruption, dishonesty, wickedness etc. It's no surprise the US or other developed countries come hard on corruption. The US especially will use a sledgehammer to kill a fly when it comes to corruption/dishonest/fraud because it spreads like a plague. The irony of it all is that we are also very religious.
We have also seen several instances on this thread of how people have requested for ways or ideas of gaming the system. What about Nairaland itself? Can discussions on this forum be compared with Reddit or other 1st world countries similar platforms? This platform is just a micro-representation of Nigeria, and we can see how alot of Nigerians reason and comment on the politics and crimes thread. If you say something bad about yahoo or fraud, and Kids or maybe adults on here would swear at you or curse you out for calling out evil in the society. It is also okay to steal money aslong as the person is your kinsmen. Sometimes, you just feel like closing Nairaland's account out of frustration. I won't call people animals or monkeys because it would be wrong to do so, but some people truly exhibit animal behaviours, not just blacks though. Even white people do, but some countries have them in greater numbers than others. lol. May God help Nigeria o.
It is better to leave Nigeria's wahala discussion out of this thread to prevent derailment.
|Re: Living In Canada/Life As A Canadian Immigrant Part 2 by Tina26: 6:26pm On Oct 23|
einsteino:Nigeria was never created to be work. the west and our leaders are benefiting from the status quo. so nothing would ever change.

I do understand his point of view and I do not justify the use of abuse to describe a human. I'm simply trying to view it from another perspective... the perspective of one who is frustrated... It's like when one says the Super Eagles are Super Chickens because of their dismal results... It's not ideal but sometimes it can't be helped
I also sincerely hope you understand where I'm coming from.

Hello house! Could you please recommend driving instructors in Toronto and GTA to me. I failed the G drive test and need to book for G2 but the available dates are in far away locations and I dont want to travel as far as I did for G. Thank you
|Re: Living In Canada/Life As A Canadian Immigrant Part 2 by Eddy4400: 9:16pm On Oct 23|
Use jobbank and click on "explore the market* under the menu tab. You can search for any financial related role in Newfoundland and Ontario and it will give you all the info you need from the wages, to skills required and even current job vacancies.
Above the available financial jobs in your search in Newfoundland, you'll see similar jobs in other provinces and the total vacancies posted. This will easily let you know where you'll have more opportunities in that field. I could be wrong though.
