I do not like living in Canada
I was born in Canada and remember nothing but suffering. I left Canada for 12 years and have now recently returned to a living nightmare. I arrived in Ottawa in -30 degree weather and had to take the bus system 2.5 hours each way to my new job at a Pre-school. I worked here for one week as the details arranged at the interview had slipped the employers mind i.e. a contract, 40 hours per week, and a wage of $19.00 per hour. I complained to the HRDC and my complaint disappeared into the abyss. I was earning $10.00 per hour in Canada almost 20 years ago and was at least able to have an apartment to myself...a basic human right. Now the wages for the jobs are still only $10.00-$12.00 per hour, however that same apartment is renting for $1000.00 PER month. Food is so expensive that it is a luxury. I want to so desperately have a stable life, live in my own home, and be able to buy my own food, instead of living on food-bank food.
Did I ask to be born into this type of life? Why do I not have a good paying job when I was always consistently the best student in class? A country where people can have the freedom to live as they choose, based on the merit of their hard work? In a training class I am currently in I received the top marks in the class exam, yet I was not chosen for the better jobs, but my neighbor who only received 80% was... a fair and democratic country? My eyes are full with unshed tears and I live each day in Canada without any happiness, hope, or future possibilities. I wished that I had never been born here.
