    I AM OFFICIALLY QUÉBÉCOIS !!!

    After an irritating Holiday season back in New York - insulting gag gifts from Trump supporting family, a minor (but annoying) car accident in Queens, no chance to take public transport in going between NJ, Westchester and CT by car for family functions and a dissapointing Christmas Eve in Manhattan (Sacks Fifth Ave christmas show was out of comission! I was like Whuuut!) and having a doctor cancel on me meaning no cheap perscriptions under mom and dad's insurance (thanks Affordable Care Act).......BUT.......

    Just got the best Christmas gift ever. I recieved today my CERTIFICAT DE SELECTION DU QUÉBEC! Meaning I am now recognized as a Québec resident in the eyes of law and more importantly I am a provincially sponsored immigrant, which makes it all but given that I will obtain my Canadian federal permenant residency by the end of 2017 (Québec controls it's own immigration as a post-referendum consession from Ottawa not to secede from Canada).

    F***ing OUI!! I am so elated, I love Québec and now my future there is secure. I will be entitled to finish my masters at Universté de Montréal, McGill or Université Laval for next to nothing, I will have healthcare and will be eligible to join the l'ordre des urbanistes du Québec opening up opportunities in the public sector. And yes, I will also be able to get a medical cannabis card, completley legitimately

    Who's coming to Montréal to celebrate with me? Planners style!

    Je vous aime, la Cyburbie!

    Congrats?

    But really...good for you. I'm happy you're happy.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Félicitations pour votre émigration réussie. [translation: you commie bastard! About time you left!]
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor
