I also met a guy from Bonn who's doing research work at U of T. He's been here over a month and been around the city.. Yet he says he wouldn't want to live here.
Cause in North America things are soooooooo hugely different from where they are from that most can't accept it, you see sex everyday on tv and people talk about it very loosely, like the show "Keys to the VIP", I find it amusing, while my cousins find it shocking that they would make shows like that, even the in-laws find it disrespectful, and they are from Holland!

And sometimes life can be very materiliastic here, where elsewhere people don't really care or have a choice in what they drive, you can buy a ****ing 745 for 20k for ****'s sake.

I agree with you on the abusing welfare system, I pay tons of taxes and it pisses me off when I see people abuse it, for example, this guy I know, whose family I absolutely hate, have tons of money, live in a 800k house, drives a brand new 60k truck, his dad is 80 something from Marutia (originally China), they have tons of money and still claim for welfare by going thru loop holes, I want to burn their ****ing house down and pee on their dead bodies.

I say let's do a protest, start a riot, when you got enough news media on you, they gotta do something.

Who wants to start with suicide bombing? any volunteers?

How do you think they get to be so weathy??? Most of them(not all, some are generous)) nickled and dimed the poor, like me

They hire accountants to set up offshore accounts to hide their millions, for they do not want to pay taxes.

Alot of pant up frustration. what can you do about it?

A BMW meet at City Hall instead of Kelsey to show these clowns that we do not take it anymore, all these taxes and increase of their salaries.. ???

i dont even live in Toronto but I think what Miller and his gang did is not good for the GTA and all businesses.

fintrac is shit, so are the mindless fools that work at the government. I called them told them that if they walk into these welfare abusing peoples house or just do some surveillance work they will see that:

1) the lady claiming to be a single mother, is in fact, not single because her husband comes to her house 4 times a week and gives her cash, etc...
2)The somalian lady, apparently lives a few blocks from the school itself in a subsidised housing complex, but drives a $100k audi
3)A old couple living across from the school raising their daughters child (because his parents are deceased so they are on welfare now for help with $$), have the following in their drive way: Range rover HSE, Cayenne, escalade, and 745. They are apparently only working a newspaper route????wtf
4)If a healthy young couple sit at home, while the mother is constantly pushing babies out and collecting welfare, and neither has a job its time to cut their relief cheques the govt signs every month.

In the end, they said that they know for a fact these people require the money, because a ****ing piece of paper in front of them tells them so, HAH

When i came here, everyone used to and still says that Germans are very racist. Its not that their racist its just that if they allow some ****ers to come into their country then they dont want to be paying their rent for them. My mom was a dentist in europe and when she came here, they told her she would have to do another 5 years of schooling here to get her license. A 40 year old will not agree to do another 5 years of school while raising two kids, but you know what, she didint go on ****ing welfare or even get osap. She worked 3 jobs, my dad did 2, and she now teaches. What we need are these ****ing welfare leeches to be burned and ****ing deported to the shithole they came from so we can set some precedence in place.

Thats why i will be getting my degree and moving on, because the quality of education here isnt that great but if your paying 50 times more for it, then it suddenly becomes "greater" than degrees earned in other countries.

I wish I was 60. I would love to move back home in my village and just work on a farm. Go to bed at 8PM ,wake up at 5AM. Take my dog for a walk. Wake up my wife to pop the milk out from the cow. Go grab a glass of water that comes from the mountain. Play a chess game with my fellos. Take the horses out to feed them in the field. Just enjoy, and don't worry if it is Monday or Sunday. Go in my shed and pop out some FETA cheese and smoked meat. Put a blanket under the tree and fall asleep in a shade like a pure hick.






40 more years to go........

Euro 7 i agree with ya man...

America & Canada outlived their glory days.. These type of things are meant to happen. The Baby boomers had a hell of a ride for the last 50 years. Think about it, in 1800s Englad was the place to be in. By the end of 1800s it was overcrowded and new hot spot was the "New World" Now the "New World" has been thoroughly raped into every hole, chewed out and spit out, the party's over... Now Europe & Asia are reclaiming their power. It's just a natural cycle.

Name me a country outside of Africa where tuition is 50 times less than it is here. In fact, find me another country where education is cheaper.

Lets compare the costs a few international mba programs.

Tuition for McGill/Desautels mba program is $4K CAD.

Tuition for LBS (UK) is ~90K CAD. Harvard (USA) is ~77K USD. Insead (France) ~75K CAD. IMD (SWI) is 60K CAD.

So again, tell me what school in Canada charges 50X more for a comparable education elsewhere.

Are you suggesting your life would be better in Asia? Good luck with that.

Even baby boomers are holding tight. They are not giving their jobs easly. The perfect example is the former OPP officer , Cam Wooley. The son of a gun retired at 50-55 as they get early retirement. Guess what? He ended up getting a job with CP24 as some traffic safety specialist. Yah after all the cash and benefits collected with OPP , he needs cash at his age.

Screw some kid that went to University and blew a fortune on the education. That kid does not need money to pay back to the bank. Cam Wooley needs it at 60. haha lol

We live in a very fake and nasty world.

not sure if your familiar with "exageration" at all, if i said 500000x more $$ would you still have taken it literally, i mean i dont know. those schools you mentioned are highly regarded schools im guessing, "most" european universities in europe charge $1000euros for your yearly tuition, regardless of your program, ask me how i know. Most people in europe dont dish out 70k for their degree, ask me how i know again...now if you can answer me this question, why was my mom who - whom of which obtained a medical degree from Heidelberg germany for an almost insane amount of money - told she has to go and get another half a decade of schooling here???

why are we apparently paying far less than other counties for our education here, YET we believe to have a superior system of education in our country, seems a little backwards doesnt it?

I believed that's job protectionism, there is on going debate on this issue.

Local graduates would have lost a placement if an external "highly" qualified professional would land one of these jobs.

There are a lot of qualified doctors, engineers etc etc.. doing odd jobs
just to put food on the table for their families. I think Toronto Star ran a series of articles on this topic.

this is a big issue that the federal/provincial goverments has to address.

I agree with you, some like your mom took it upon herself to work and provide for you and better herself in securing a better paying job while others(not all) would rely on goverment's support.

Ya ya. Not to mention, no funeral drama like here. You just pay 50 euros for a nice wooden casket and you are done. They drop it in , and some lady will come to put some flowers on top.
