HA! I was just listening to the Gutter Twins!

but now moved onto Radio head-house of cards


"you fondle my trigger then you blame my gun"

Timeline: 13 month long journey from filing to visa in hand

If you were lucky and got an approval and reunion with your loved one rather quickly; Please refrain from telling people who waited 6+ months just to get out of a service center to "chill out" or to "stop whining" It's insensitive,and unecessary. Once you walk a mile in their shoes you will understand and be heard.

Thanks!

Lol...Aren't we all Canadians exports? (just kidding). Seriously though, you kind of have to wonder why all the Canadian talent is headed down south to America, which Canadian culture-wise is somewhat unfortunate.....

I do not mind that Celine Dion is an export.. the US can have her.. good riddance I say! (not a fan at ALL)

And there are loads of great CDN talent still in Canada and who stay in Canada.. glad to say. Thankfully all the action doesn't move to Nashville & Hollywood.

As for the rest of us.. I'd be back in a heartbeat if I could *insert really big sigh here

Do we really need to answer this :lol: - I don't really see how Celine heading for Vegas affects Canadian culture at all (and I don't mean I don't like Celine, because I do).

I have been listening to a bit of Elton John this week - not a huge surprise as he is my favorite music person.
