Submision Type



Leaving the US for Canada in 1969, I began living and working in a country that was opposed to the war in Vietnam. I had talked with immigration lawyers who told me that I had a 50/50 chance of being accepted as a landed immigrant. I decide to wait for official word from the Canadian government.



Short Summary

Entering Canada, without any working papers, I began working at jobs that paid cash. Starting a communal house in Vancouver, with people from Vancouver, Toronto, Michigan, and California. I left Vancouver for Vancouver Island, where I began a career in forestry while waiting for a decision.
