4th of July in Canada

My first Independence Day in Canada. I have a U.S. flag flying in the condo window for the construction workers on the high rise across the street to see. Later today, my Love and I will have a bar-b-que of steak and veggies in the high heat of early summer. But this is just another Wednesday for Canadians, and I'm working as usual. I had my long weekend already, for Canada Day (July 1). If I were in the U.S. my brother and I would be going to see friends and fireworks later on, and I do miss my brother a lot, but we had years to prepare for my leaving the states, and both our lives are going happily on. I feel free from heavy handed government, from useless politicians, from a violent police force in Seattle, from taxes that only line the pockets of the wealthy. I am proud to be an American, but I don't feel America is the "land of the free" anymore. Here in Canada, I feel free.


  1. Thank you for this post. My family is moving to Canada from Texas next year, looking for that feeling of freedom as well!

  2. I'm so glad I found your blog-- my partner and I are in the very beginning stages of exploring the process of leaving the U.S. and Toronto is a potential destination. We want to leave for all the reasons you listed in this post and then some: tyrannical government, police state, runaway taxation, messed up healthcare system, lack of civil liberties, endless war, etc.

    I've only read your most recent posts but I look forward to reading more, along with the ones you have yet to write. I'm especially interested in the skilled worker angle because I'm a web developer and am hoping that might help out with the immigration process.

    Thanks again for keeping this blog! :)
