    Bayview and Sheppard: Toronto's most congested intersections

    Sheppard was always congested during peak time. I remember taking the bus to Yonge subway and at it's worst, Don Mills > Yonge (where we have the stubway now) could take upwards of 1 hour. The problem stems from the intensification of suburbia North, in Richmond Hill and Markham and the...

    Solaris Condos (Tridel) - Real Estate -

    Wait a bit before moving in. No hot water for us on the upper floors (32-40). First few days was bliss (instant hot water) but then... for some reason the hot water disappeared for a few days, then it would come on but only after running the shower for about 10 minutes and now it's off again...

    Conservative Immigration Policy

    Oh bother, you're an idiot an a rather mouthy and stupid one. I'm just highlighting the fact that rules are not consistent for people in similar situations/ For your information, yes i am an immigration Consultant but no, I do not rely on that for my bread and butter. I'm a programmer by day...

    Conservative Immigration Policy

    I'm not at liberty to disclose confidential information but I do have proof/am saying that rules are not consistent for all people in similar situations.

    Conservative Immigration Policy

    No offense but that article is just an editorial mouthpiece. If you actually see the work in immigration, it's a different story. The backlog is lessened but for a different reason; they are just fast-tracking rejection. More and more people are getting rejection letters even though they've...

    Scarborough: Japanese-owned Japanese restaurants

    Well @ Cafe Michi if you're asking if the guy buys the fish and slices/plucks the bones out himself then yes. There used to be one @ market village (a real sushi expert) that i went to. He closed down awhile ago though due to lack of items (he had sushi and sashimi but nothing fancy, just the...

    Scarborough: Japanese-owned Japanese restaurants

    I go to Cafe Michi too but the Sushi there is limited, what is there is good though. It's reall a cafe rather than someplace you eat sushi in. Their cooked stuff is really good and the cheesecake or green tea cake is excellent (although their other cakes are not as good). When going for the 1st...

    Immigration App Rejected

    Geez, I'm surprised I didn't see this before. Judging by what you've said, I'll think you made a skilled workers application and you are classified as an OAB worker. What you have not said is how long have you been working at said job (or similar jobs). I hope you have retained an...

    Education of newcomers to Canada (moved from transport)

    The likelihood/desire though is that the kid will grow up to be a taxpayer. Also, unless the wife is getting social assistance she's forcing the guy to spend more at the very least on food and basic supplies. Many H&C cases are based on this. While the mother/parent (usually single parent...

    Education of newcomers to Canada (moved from transport)

    I say hogwash to this. It's not always grandma but the frikken wife and children! Helllooooo! They are also family class and the biggest part of it! You're taking the worst example instead of the best and most frequent.

    Financial Crisis

    Honestly the easiest way out of this mess is basically converting to a socialist regime in which the top 1% no longer hold 90% of the worlds money. "Off with their heads" I say! But yeah, major power and wealth redistribution needs to happen, more or less another revolution at some point down...

    Education of newcomers to Canada (moved from transport)

    Oh god, don't remind me of the nightmare that was Chinese school either >< I just could not get it. Sure I can speak fluently (enough) but how they tried to teach (which was basically assuming your parents giving you the basics rahter than um, watching those cheesy martial arts period flicks)...

    Education of newcomers to Canada (moved from transport)

    And that leads back to why we need immigrants (productive ones) which is one of the essential themes of this topic. In order for the boomer generation to move on we need these immigrants but it becomes a grab here, boomers don't want to give things up and hang on to the high paying jobs/money...

    Education of newcomers to Canada (moved from transport)

    That isn't a bad idea but would Canadian employers accept credentials from such a university as readily as they would from U of T or Waterloo (not like Waterloo is that great, bright minds there but couldn't speak english to, well, land a job unless it's purely applied math and sciences for...

    Education of newcomers to Canada (moved from transport)

    Well my first job that I'm still at is as a programmer. I've found that it does not pay as much as I want and there is very little mobility upwards so i started immigration Consulting (which is the same industry my mom works in) basically because when I started taking classes for it, the upkeep...

    Education of newcomers to Canada (moved from transport)

    That's what I'm being forced to do too. Hoping that in the long run I can make it successfully as an Immigration Consultant but then again, it is not easy. The biggest problem I face is the CSIC board charging way too much for a license (it eclipses even a lawyers license). Once again, at the...
