Did I tell you most cars here are automatics? Including 4x4s?
For the most part, if you want a stick, you gotta specify or it'll come with an automatic. Certain models notwithstanding.

Seriously how bad is it out there. How many months can you just survive with a light jacket and without shoveling your drive way in the southern cities


It depends where you are. I live within a 20 minute drive of the longitudinal center of Canada. (Winnipeg) We get the entire range of -40 to +40 C throughout the year. The length of each season varies quite a bit from year to year. We got our first snowfall just over a week ago, and it will probably last until March at least. We'll get 2 months of bitter cold a year, and 2 months of extreme heat. The rest of it is somewhere between. The beach picture was from Grand Beach in Manitoba, which is about an hour's drive from here.

And hey, we've got a desert too!

I spent a lot of time out at Carberry, and out in the desert as a kid. One of my fav spots was for trout fishing at Pine Creek campground. Right where the creek crosses underneath the Trans Canada.

You can basically walk anywhere you want in Labrador DD. It's bigger than most of the Middle East put together and is a tundra. Vroom vroom.

We did the Epinette hiking trail at Spruce Woods in February once without skiis. It took almost 4 days. That place and Tulabi Falls in Nopoming Park are my favourite places to enjoy nature.

The credentials recognition is huge and in Canada it is in desperate need of reform. To be honest it is in your best interest unless you already have a job secured is to go to Australia 1st. Immigration reform just isn't going to happen here in a timely manner.

I had to redo everything Scape, but it was worth it I'm doing better than I would have done in the UK.

Despite the intial hassle, if you have the skills and are determined you can make a go of it.

Those supposedly skilled types who haven't managed to transfer their status and education/experience etc usually lack communication skills (written and spoken) or their education just wasn't up to it in Canada.
