Canada will continue to muddle through because it always has. If countries like Canada go truly belly-up, then I'm sure other middling countries like Canada will go belly-up long before Canada does.
The issue is would you want to pay a mortgage of a $500,000 property when its only worth $250,000 face value?

you are right on many aspects here. canada is a great place, but it's not the only great place.

As for Europe's economy, don't be so quick to judge based on the headlines. For educated people, especially in finance (like myself), the opportunities are abundant and way greater than in Canada (and even in the US for myself, or so I found). Also, Germany (which admittidly is the economic engine of Europe) has full employment - they are having issues filling positions, yet you won't hear that in the news that much around the world (and why would you)

also, on the economy front, for unemployed it is so socialist here that they have amazing benefits (something I personally hate), but it has been explained to me why this system works so well for society on the whole, and you do start to see the benefits to it... don't get me wrong, I pay a top marginal tax rate >50%, which is sickening, but life is very harmonious (until a jihadi goes on a lone wolf crazy attack, *knock wood*)

That's another headline that gets it entirely wrong.

Europe has had to live on mass in migration for years now.

Europeans do not like groups that do not integrate, I can understand and appreciate this.

There are HUGE groups of Asians in many cities (especially business cities) throughout Europe. Dusseldorf has one of the largest Japanese communities outside of Japan, Amsterdam has a huge Japanese expact community (>5,000), on top of that a large indian, american, chinese, etc. group of expats / immigrants - difference is, they integrate.

the best place, if you're worried about xenophobia, is london, by far the most multicultural major city in Europe, and huge career opportunities, only downside is you have to live in london (personal opinion) and the cost of living is high, but for a short time, it'd be great for your life (career, cultural, experience, etc.) - plus there are special tax rules if u are on a <2 year temporary placement which makes things a LOT better.

A huge problem with north americans is they read the headline news and conclude that's how life is. What is written about Europe and real life is totally different. From a lifestyle perspective, life is easier here than it was in Vancouver for me, but that's just a personal anecdote

hmmmmm, well I guess it's just a perception thing.

mind you, relative to say, the america political system, the above probably is more true in Canada... but the BC liberals and Federal Conservatives are doing their best to play catch up!

Vancouver is mortgaging its future for a market that?s anything but free - The Globe and Mail

good article from G&M

"...Vancouver’s housing crisis has been directly caused by government policy, and now that an entire generation has been priced out of the market, we’re being told to deal with it – it’s the free market. That term, “free market,” has become meaningless in the process – invoked when it benefits the wealthy and powerful, and completely circumvented when it doesn’t..."

blame your fucking government. It's your fucking stupid government that lets in 76000 millionaires each year. What do you think all the millionaires gonna do with all their money. Duh. They gonna buy your properties. Well go ask your fucking stupid government why they let in so many millionaires in the first place. Now that the millionaires have your citizenship it is no longer a Foreigner vs Canadian thing. it is Rich motherfucking Canadian vs non-rich Canadian. Again go write to your MLA why they let in so many millionaires in the first place dumbass.

Millionaires are corrupt, not ALL but a whole lot of them. Again your stupid fucking government is STILL protecting and even handing out REFUGE protection to some of the most wanted corrupt ex Communist members such as Muyang Cheng (Michael Ching go read it up).

It is your fucking government's fault. TLDR: your government is a stupid whore that opens her legs up to who ever gives money. everyone in the world knows that canada's reputation as a safe heaven for corrupt elites.

As bad as this sounds, I still have to agree with this guy. I can't say that all millionaires from China are corrupt and just trying to park their money here. Some really just want a better living environment for their family and relatively speaking, Vancouver is still quite cheap compared to other great cities especially with the CAD and interest rates tanking.

Well at least I'm not corrupt in any way.

Yea!! fuck those Chinese who literally risked their lives and worked hard under an oppressive government, saved enough then got lucky and eventually made it out given the 1/billion people odd chance. Then, FUCK these Chinese even harder when they come here with their hard earned money and invested in to our economy and made Vancouver in to the multicultural city it is today with investments all over the world and making a bunch of locals rich.

BUT WAIT!

FUCK THEM. WHITE PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS RIGHT BECAUSE WE WERE HERE FIRST!
THEY NEED TO BE LAZY LIKE US! SPEAK ENGLISH!

and even though we say we know the problem. Lets not do anything about it .... leave it unregulated, that'll show'em

your feeling is 100% correct.

I have never bowed down to any Anglo-Saxons. Why the fuck should I suck on some honky's toes. Your country has so little history, why the fuck should I bend over to follow your motherfucking backward barbarian culture? assimilate to whom? I'll assimilate to aboriginal culture just to fuck you around.

doubt you can even afford a direct business flight... go suck your bong

Are you aware that assimilation does not imply servitude?

I can't afford a direct business flight, it's true. Sadly I live on welfare and it's barely enough money to cover my internet, weed, and deep fried food costs.

It's not my fault though, Canada is such a disaster, terrible educational system and no job prospects.. I was hoping to maybe get a job driving heavy haulers in Ft.Mac but I have like 3 DUI's, turns out having no license makes me ineligible.

Not sure how you assimilating to aboriginal culture would "fuck me around"? Oh, you're insinuating that they are a bunch of degenerates, silly me.

Why do you live here then ? Why stay ? Go back to your third world country with polluted air and water and go pay taxes there ! You should be kissing the feet of these anglo saxons for letting you or your parents into this country.

You left for a reason ! Dummy !

I understand your frustrations. But let me clarify something 1. I'm not a Canadian citizen (Im PR and don't ever plan on obtaining citizenship). 2. Your government still owes me money so I can't just stand up and leave yet.

also you need change your perspective. I live a easy and comfortable life both here and in China. It's more of me taking a sacrifice living in a boring underdeveloped country like canada more than anything else.
