we move to canada
Laura, I am so happy to read your detailed accounts of your journey, your house, and your beautiful neighborhood! Oh, excuse me, I meant "neighbourhood." That's really looks strange, but I think it's correct. I can accept "honour" and "colour" and "centre," but it will take me some time to get used to "neighbourhood." It may very well be that your (and Allan's) pioneering adventure (as Mom called it) will give us a bit more motivation to move to BC. Thank you! Incidentally, when I took The Test today on the CIC website to estimate my total points, I was able to click "yes" for "Family in Canada as Citizens or Permanent Residents!" Isn't that exciting? It didn't seem to actually give me more points, but it was very cool to answer "yes" anyway!
Hey Marcie! We got 5 points for Allan's Uncle David. However, you & Marty have way, way more points than the minimum, by virtue of graduate school educations for both of you - plus you speak French. (And don't tell me how rusty you are, it would all come right back to you.) So you don't need the 5 points, but it is cool you could click on that anyway!
I remember taking that test just out of interest a couple of years ago when a friend of mine in the US was talking about moving to Canada. I passed with not much to spare. An older friend of mine (born in Toronto) living down by the CNE took the test and failed. I wonder if that means CIC can deport him? :) "Your last name's Scottish? Better grab some sheep."
