You would rarely..i mean rarely see americans moving to canada for work. The only few times i see them in my field here in canada is when we cant get a canadian to fix our broken down american made equipments from GE, Caterpillar, Rottler etc

If AutoCad, GE, ford, gmc, chevrolet etc pull out of Canada, It wont be funny.

Lol!...that will never happen.

Canada is so dear to the US. cheesy

I don't even have access to my email u can ask me here and I will be honest AF

I value privacy alot, it's about migration and I'll love to keep it secret. Alot of people knows me here on NL hence the reason for the privacy concern. If there's no way I can contact you, it's fine.

The greatest country is where your basic requirements are met. To some, America is the dream country. To others, it is a nightmare. As bad as Afghanistan is, some people will not want to leave it for anywhere else.

Beyond the rhetoric, everyone's experience will be different.

True that, people don't know there are thousands of black Americans that have relocated to Africa especially Ghana and most say they are not going back to America that some Africans will do anything to get it's visa.

Why would anyone want to move to biggar. You would get similar wages in bigger cities like weyburn or estevan or yorkton or swift if it is about higher pay.

Very dead country bra.

Most UK cities look so old like Africa, no stollen money from Africa again to build new infrastructure.

It hurts me that Hitler didn't succeed in destroying UK and leveling it down completely.

The way Nazi fighters bombarded London that made Chamberlain picked race, I expected UK to have been leveled if not for US intervention.

Very wicked people called Brits!

Their doomsday is still coming as they are beginning to appoint terrorist apologists as their city Mayors, its just a matter of time when UK will be finally laid to rest angry

I’m never moving to America, Never! Security is the most important. SECURITY. Then comes acceptance.
You are very right.
What do they know?

All these boys shouting up and down grin grin

As at last 4 or 5 yrs, there was a very heated argument from people in diaspora here about countries that are actually best in terms of living condition, feeding, acceptance, etc in this nairaland cos as usual, people in America will not allow us to hear.
Folks that have lived in said countries dug deep, really deep and compared lots of things.
Was shocked that US people were floored.
For sometime, we enjoyed relative peace from them.
That said,

It is also important to remind them that during the bad days of recession in Nigeria, according to cbn report, it was folks from UK that bring in the much needed foreign currency into the country through money they sent to tjeir people especially,Not US grin

Yet,hardly can u see folks from UK make noise.
Or other European countries.

Add other countries.
It's only USA. Na only dem dey away grin

It's visa free to go to the states

How many Australians have u seen relocating to the states lol
Come to central now u will see a lot of USA backpackers working 100%
There are Australians in the US working 100%. Australians relocate to the US as many as Americans relocating to Australia. You are able to recognize Americans in Australia based on your comment because of their backpacking culture. It’s difficult to identify white people from New Zealand, England and Australia in the US because they are all white. Unless they tell you where they are from you won’t know. I have seen a couple of them that said they were from New Zealand and Australia. They mix with American whites and take advantage of American white privilege.

Besides, most of the American backpackers you referring to are possibly tourists. Hence why you see them in backpacks for the most part. If you see an American backpacker in public places anywhere around the world, 99% of the time, he is a tourist. Unless you want to tell me you follow them to the place where they are working. Americans spend money on tourism around the world more than any country on earth.

Tax i.e sales 6% and 5% pst.

Income tax is different and its based on your earnings. Between my wife and i, we pay close to 80k per year in tax plus other deductions.

I do. And dental too. But that’s still not bad.

Have you ever seen a doctor without your health card before?
