A long hallway and three shots

It was my good fortune to be invited to lunch with some local couples who are immigrating to Canada. Lunch was in this fifth floor restaurant that consisted of many private dining rooms and that was longer that an American football field. I hope the photo below conveys the length.

The couples will be immigrating to Quebec and Prince Edward Island. The couple that is immigrating to PEI has a house in West Vancouver -- 3,000 miles apart. They have been told that even though they are expected to go to PEI, they can move away eventually. The couple going to Quebec was curious about how they could get by there without speaking French. One of the men had lived in Fredericton, New Brunswick for a while and found it to be very small.

It took me three tries to get this photo, taken in the dining room, right.

What's wrong with being in PEI? It's a bucolic paradise where people are friendly, the scenery is beautiful and unspoilt, and crime is virtually nonexistent. But of course the couple will leave for Markham or Richmond the first chance they get, can't dare to be different than the rest of the hordes after all SIGH

They already have a house in West Vancouver!

They would think PEI was too small. One of the men at the dinner commented on the smallness of Fredericton.
