雖不關金銀事,也幫幫金甲小妹!

有金甲小妹妹來電求意見,小弟覺得集眾人意見,好過齋聽小弟一人說,為免誤人前途,望各位金銀甲大大給金甲小妹妹一點意見,金甲小妹妹情況如下:

金甲小妹妹17 歲移民加拿大,現已34歲,家人在加國,自已則在美國西雅圖一軟件公司做會計,對薪金,工時,工作壓力等比例滿意。

不過居安思危,都想試下有沒有新發展,知道溫哥華有很多金銀礦公司,有 head office accounting 類型的工作。由於已成為金甲,看好未來金銀礦公司發展,故想試試回流加國找這類工作。

回流好處是:媽媽已65歲。身體頗健康,但開始有小問題,感到她老了,回流可留多點時間陪伴老人家。心中已決定若一天她有大問題,會毫不猶豫辭職回去。時常思考應否早點回家享受天倫之樂?

但問題是溫哥華薪金較低,大約要比現在薪金少20-30%,況且看了168的糟老頭大分析,知道mining is a high risk business,在昌明之地好多環保之士阻撓,九反之地又有土匪,政府攪亂,故怕自已過份樂觀,放棄現有工作會否犧牲太大?

如果是我,我會回加拿大,因為小弟覺親情更可貴!特別這幾年好幾個朋友的父母突然離開。

"加拿大梗係好 銀行冇乜玩衍生工具"

That's incorrect. In fact, the Canadian government has secretly bailed out TD Bank (one of the 5 Canadian banks) back in 08/09.

Also, the banking system of Canada is highly exposed to European bonds.


I live in Vancouver, so I know a thing or two about the city.

Financially, please consider:
Your wage/salary is 20-30% less than in the States. On the other hand, your everyday-expense (e.g. food, housing, gas) is likely to be 2 double than when you are in the states.

Politically, please consider:
1. Canadians are living in a more prison state than Americans. The Canadian government continuously does a lot of things to rip your freedom away secretly. One good example is the signing of ACTA back in 2006, when the government did it secretly and the presstitutes turned a blind eye to the event.
2. You have a government and a population that loves central planning. They love government to step in and do stuff for the population. I hate this aspect of Canada.
3. You have a police force and a military that took an oath to serve the British queen instead of the public.

That being said, a few good things:
1. Spending time with your family is good.
2. Vancouver has a nice multicultural society (you probably know about this). If you especially like Asian products, you will find nothing short of abundance of Asian shopping/dining options.
3. Vancouver's city dynamic is less oppressive than Seattle (I've been to Seattle and I know people who lived in Vancouver and works in Seattle, and this is the opinion I got).
4. Your work is likely to have less pressure than what you have in the States.

At the end, I believe you have to make the final decision yourself. I, however, can provide you more pros/cons or information about Vancouver (if you are not familiar with it already) to help you weigh your costs/benefits to make your decision.

Jammy,

Your analysis is very depth and broad. Of course, Canada is much better than U.S. for living standard.
Furthermore, I totally agree with the point what you mentioned about financial institutions that bailed out by Canada government secretly.

Many people thought that Canada in this field did much better than US but actually not!

if you have already got a good exposure in precious metals or mining companies, don't work a job in mining company.

In short, Don't put all your eggs in one basket.

白銀Backwardation係咪巳出現了幾個月?

但石油Backwardation好像大半年前到現在都出現,又有什麼事?

以下是個人的想法與淺見:

本人住在溫哥華,所以就以溫哥華而論。我不是富裕一群(非經濟移民),知道米貴。不是讀經濟,但尚有新聞觸角,常留意加國本土時事,及其中英文傳媒的報道與言論節目。溫哥華薪金較低,生活開支高。假期加人都紛紛過境買菜買grocery,因爲大溫哥華百物滕貴選擇少。還有不要忘記,這裡是萬稅萬稅萬萬稅的地方。

回加拿大,淨是為了和家人一起生活就是了。不要覺得可以大展鴻圖。在加拿大,不要以爲有什麽可以發展,在這裡很多人反對發展這回事,最好永遠不變。一個decision要講夠N年(齋講),然後實行又拖幾年。又有d人阻頭阻勢,反對這反對哪。

犧牲…..每個人對於犧牲都有不同的定義。我會情願窮點也要和親人一起生活。
我願意犧牲錢。或者說,我覺得能夠和親人一起生活太重要,跟本不覺得是犧牲的問題。在我眼中,金錢完全無法和親情相比。(還有想想古巨基的歌吧,不要愛得太遲呀)

如上面的網友所說,我們無法幫你決定。Just as what other has said, no one can make the decision for you. 還有我們不熟識你的狀況,只能夠給你非常表面的意見。我們旁觀者齜牙鬆杠,但最後承受的是你自己。

我屋企人都在温,係我就會返加,税是高,living standard亦是。但近屋企人重要,至於發展機會,肯放眼世界到處都是機會,現今是globalization 社會,就算人在加,亦不是局限一個地方,一個城市。
