U.S. expat reflects on decision to move to Canada

Andrew Stivelman didn’t like the direction his country was heading in and jumped at the chance to leave the United States in the summer of 2003 when his Boston employer opened an office in Toronto.

Stivelman didn’t consider George W. Bush his president after Al Gore won the popular vote but lost the electoral vote to his Republican rival back in 2000. He also felt America was becoming a war-loving nation with the invasion of Iraq later in 2003.

“So I made the switch and never looked back,” Stivelman told Yahoo Canada News.

Immigration lawyers in Canada said they advised several American citizens like Stivelman who were upset about Bush and wanted to leave after the U.S. president won a second term in 2004. However, it’s worse this time with the election of Donald Trump.
