After the 2004 election, I got a flurry of email from people interested in moving to Canada. The first person to contact me was Nick from Colorado - and Nick was also the first person, out of everyone who wrote, to actually act on the idea. Now he has an application in the CIC queue - he and his partner are moving to Toronto!
Though we don't know each other well, I know we are kindred spirits. One day Nick and Mason and Allan and Laura will meet for a drink in our new city.
Nick and Mason have started a blog to keep track of their emigration experience and to update friends and family after they move. (Seems to me that was the original purpose of this blog!) It's called Destination: 43:40:12N 79:22:12W. Pay them a visit when you have a moment.
I've also reorganized the "friends of wmtc" links into alphabetical order. They had been in some kind of vague order in which people found me, but that was getting ridiculous. Now I've conformed to what seems to be the blogosphere standard. (That's me, always the conformist!) If you're reading wmtc and I don't know your blog, please send it to me so I can link to you.
That's it for this morning. More from me later tonight.
