#1 Strange how that works. Taxes go up on businessmen, the businessment and jobs go elsewhere. Perhaps our Champ should take note.

#4 You might think, if you were president of the United States, that it might be beneficial for this country to encourage these wealthy French businessmen to immigrate here. They would be France's loss and our gain. I mean, these are the kind of industrious, wealthy, entrepreneurial people who could help our economy much more so than millions of poor peasants from Third World countries and religious whackos from Pakistain. That would be logical, would it not?

#5 If Canada was smart they'd make it very favorable for these rich folks to move to Quebec.

#6 According to what I've read, Canada is #3 behind Belgium and England as destinations, Canada being specifically Quebec.
