Canada is the future (I think)

Canada is the future (I think)

by Heather Gittens

I currently live in Atlanta, Georgia and would like very much to move back North again (I used to live in NY/NJ). I visited Toronto and Montreal years ago and I must say that if it were left up to me and I had some money, I would move to Canada in a heartbeat. I understand that no country is perfect, but you go where your heart belongs. Once upon a time, I wanted to live in America (I'm originally from Trinidad, West Indies). Now that America doesn't feel like home anymore, I wish for something different. And Canada provides that balance that I like without the extremes: a little British and Europe mixed with USA and a dash of Trinidad. It may be younger than the USA and a shadow of the USA, but it's a progressive nation that is looking brighter for the 21st Century. I'm glad to say that my favorite celebrity, William Shatner, is from Montreal, Canada. Even though I haven't lived in your beautiful country, I'm inspired to move there.

Went Back
by: Lime

I am from London (Ontario) and I went to America 5 years ago but my destiny fetched me back to the future, and I longed to see London again, so I went back.

Hi Savoera

Thank you for putting a smile on my face. It's nice to know that I'm not the only island girl that feels this way. I knew someone from Amsterdam, The Netherlands, whose family is from Suriname. Her name is Maureen Moore-Wolff and I worked with her briefly at Rutgers University in Newark, NJ and never heard of her again.

Hello there!

Hi Heather,

Well, guess what! I've also lived in Atlanta, Georgia, and I also come from the Caribbean! My home country is Suriname. And believe it or not, I also lived in New York for 3 years before moving to Atlanta (spent 12 years there). I love it here in Canada! Best decision we ever made to move here! ☺
