Unfortunately Jr. it's all about the money for this kind of people.

Oh? Your a Christian? Didn't know that. :D I am too.


Good to hear,I sensed that maybe you were. There could be a couple more on here who are Christians.
A Stanley Cup and 2 feet of snow would be nice
But I still haven't found what I'm looking for

You don't know what inspiring is. I came to this wonderful country in 2003 with my wife and 4 suitcases and $9000.00. I was 26 years old when I came and it was the hardest thing I had ever done.We didn't know anything and anybody, everything was new to us and incredibly difficult. In 2013 I decided to start my own business and it worked out. Now I work with one of the highest end builders in the city and Whistler. People don't know how fortunate are to be born/living in this country. This country is my home, my kids are born here and I can't be more thankful.


Ok, now can I be inspired? :lol: :lol: I have always lived in the Vancouver area and am impressed by people who are brave enough to change countries, especially as you did with not much in your 'pocket' and no one here. Takes a lot of guts. Where did you move from?


I moved here from Bulgaria, Eastern Europe. Living there wasn't easy, during and after the communist. That's why I say how fortunate people are to be born in Canada.

Although epic winters were guarantee there.


My parents and grandfather had a similar story many years ago,running away from communism in former yugoslavia(croatia) and wanting to make a better life for their family in Canada. My mother was pregnant with me and hungry when they literally were hopping trains and walking through fields for miles and miles on the way to italy and stumbled onto a Catholic refugee camp. From there someone sponsored us and we were on our way to Canada(montreal) via boat. It's amazing how they(we) got through that whole ordeal. I have no doubt that God was with us and paved the way.

I can totally relate to that. My grandfather was political prisoner in labour camp for 8 years after his release he managed to cross the border with Yugoslavia and emigrated to West Germany with the hope to get his family there (that never happened). After 11 years there he came back home in 1989 and never went back.
