VI. Becoming Canadian
In my life, looking ahead was always more important than looking back. I enjoyed my life in Montreal. I loved the people. It didn't take long for me to forego my plan to go to the United States. I was close enough to my relatives living there and reasoned that we could visit each other anytime we wanted to. I know I made the right decision.
