Blame Canada!

 

It may seem like a quiet country where not much happens besides ice hockey, curling and beer drinking. But our neighbor to the north is proving to be quite the draw for thousands of disgruntled Americans.

Well, now we are only getting about half as many people back as we are losing to the states each year.

 

We are losing valuable people (doctors, educated people), and we are getting draft dodgers, etc in exchange...

 

New thing Harper should take the draft dodgers and send them to the Artic, protect Canadian waters from Denmark and Russia rofl

 

It is a pain that we are losing the docs :( , if only Canada would pay them more.

The draft dodgers were from the 60's and 70's! The Americans who come to canada today are just as educated as the canadians who go to the US.

 

The positive thing about this is that in 2000 there were 30,000 canadians who left for the US, while there were only 5,000 americans who came to canada. In 2006 the numbers were closer. 23,000 canadians heading to the US and 11,000 americans coming to canada. A nice improvement!

One thing is, I was going too move to the US a couple years ago. Did not work out, seeing 9/11 happened and then after the US economy went to shit. Plus the place I was going too move to, not sure if it was going too be the same all over, if you open a business, for ever owner you need like 4 employees or something, plus the health care costs would have been just insane.

Regarding the healthcare costs: that is precisely why the Big 3 US Automakers are having financial problems. They have to pay health insurance for hundreds of thousands of employees.

 

The solution in both Canada and the US is having two-tier. One-tier systems were proven not to work in either country.

One thing I do like the two-tier system, as long as I can get some decent health care and what not I am happy.
