  So, what´s wrong with driving taxi or gas bar!
So many white people or even middle age white people are doing those kinds of jobs in Canada!

One more thing, do you tip cab driver when you take taxi in your home country?
Taxi drivers in Canada earn another 40?50% of total income from tips.

What misunderstood is you have what kinds of degree in your home country and you suppose to get related jobs in Canada, this is impossible.

Most of jobs in Canada are under regulation, which means you have to get licenses or pass examination and registered, then you can work in those kinds of field.

It?s about choice, that?s super correct!!
Choice the life you enjoy.

You know what? Money is not everything. Even you won 649, so what?
Statistics shows that people live unhappier after they won lottery.

Something money cannot buy, can you buy as fresh air as Canada?
Can you buy no crime in community in your home country?
Can you buy friendly neighborhood?

Finally, wanna give Canuck a song from ?Barenaked ladies?
?If I had million of dollars?
After you listen to this song, you might understand what kinds of Canadian life am I choosing for!

Top Eight Reasons NOT to immigrate to Canada (in reply to: to Canuck)
Top Eight Reasons NOT to immigrate to Canada



8. Discriminatory and Dishonest Immigration System.
Immigration to Canada is based on a point system, obtained with your education, qualifications and job experience. Points are good enough for immigration, but in Canada, they are not good enough to get a job in your field. Amazing, how the credentials that qualify you to come to Canada are the same credentials that don´t qualify you for your profession in Canada. The reason is, Canada only wants immigrants to do the labor jobs - pizza delivery, driving taxis, factory work etc.

7. Out Of Control Cost Of Living.
From rent, to utility bills, to shopping, to phone, internet and cable bills, to gas, to car insurance, to eating out, to basically anything you have to pay for or buy, the cost of living in Canada has become astronomical. Recent immigrants are astonished as to how expensive everything is. It is estimated that compared to most countries around the world, the cost of living in Canada is on average five times greater.

6. Health Care Crisis.
Practicing physicians in Canada are in a shortage, 1 in 4 Canadians cannot get a family doctor. Canadian doctors are leaving to move permanently to the United States. Statistics Canada and the Canadian Medical Association both have identified that for every 1 American doctor that moves to Canada, 19 (nineteen) Canadian doctors move to the United States! Doctors in Canada are overworked and underpaid, and there is a cap on their salaries.

5. Very High Taxes.
Yes, you have the GST, the PST, totaling 15%, on practically everything you purchase and many other taxes taken out of our weekly paycheck. You have to pay a whopping amount to the government, out of your hard earned salary, so that the government can turn around and give it to beer drinking, hockey watching welfare bums. Fair? It does not matter, it´s Canada.

4. Money Hungry Government.
Canadian Embassies around the world lie to foreigners, painting this picture that Canada is Utopia, because they want foreigners to come to Canada. Why? Because foreigners bring money! So after being deceived, these foreigners come. They must bring with them at least $10,000. Canada has an immigration quota of 250,000 per year. So please do the math, 250,000 multiplied by $10,000 each equals a whopping 2.5 Billion dollars that Canada gains from immigrants every year.

3. No Culture.
Unlike almost every other country in the world, Canada has no culture. Actually American culture is what dominates Canada. When was the last time you had some ´Canadian´ food? There are no Canadian traditions and there is no national identity. What does it even mean to call yourself a ´Canadian´. . .nothing really. People living in Canada, still identify themselves as to where they ´originally´ came from.

2. Worst Weather.
Yes, Canada has the worst weather conditions of any country in the world. Freezing cold temperatures, snow, ice, hail, winds, storms etc From the Prairie provinces to the Maritimes, from the Territories to southern Ontario, the weather is so horrific and disgusting that many Canadians leave Canada simply because of this reason alone.

1. No Jobs.
Yes, coast to coast, there are no jobs. Immigrants are highly qualified (MD´s, PhD´s, Lawyers, Engineers etc.) but they are driving taxi cabs, delivering pizza´s or working in factories. Even people with bachelors degrees from Canadian Universities cannot find jobs after graduation. This is the tragedy associated with immigration to Canada. I feel sorry for those immigrants who are stuck in Canada for the rest of their lives. It is indeed a very sad and hopeless future.
