In 2005 I decided I wanted to move to Vancouver, BC. There were a variety of reasons for this, not the least of which was that I liked Vancouver. I also liked Canadian social tolerance versus the rising tide of intolerance I saw in my own home country of the United States.
At the end of 2011, I was formally rejected for permanent residence in Canada. While I’ve been working on achieving permanent residence in Canada for the past six years, my journey to achieve this has not yet been achieved. Indeed, all that has happened is that it has moved into a more challenging phase.
Thus, I decided to start this Blog in order to capture my experience in hopes that it will both help me organize my own thoughts as well as help others who might find themselves in a similar situation.
