What were your hopes and dreams for your new life here in Canada? Were they fulfilled?

Initially, coming to Canada was a short term alternative. It was just a step in my life that I would make out good and return to Germany. Canada seemed to have a lot of freedom in the marketplace and Montreal was a very big city, which had the best of everything. I was not a spoiled person from the big cities in Germany, but one of ten children from a small town.
