Well, there’s more than just me out there going to Canada. Looks like, according to ABC news there are 10,942 Americans all gone to Canada.
If you want, I’d love to collect your stories, find out more about who you are and share that with people. I’m a writer, working on my own immigration memoir, and I’d like to know more about your immigration, your coming to Canada. if you give me a way to contact you, I would enjoy interviewing you.
I think our stories need to be heard. Check out this link:
O Canada! More Americans headed north
The tagline at the top of the window actually uses the word “flee”–which I think is interesting and loaded. If you read this and have a comment, please post. Thanks.
I mentioned your story to a guy I met this weekend at Context in Columbus. He said that his daughter emigrated to Vancouver B.C, and had the usual troubles with trying to get a residency permit. Then she mentioned she was a ceramicist, and alas, the way cleared.
Hmmm…I’m a ceramic artist too, and I speak French…
