Hangin' up my hat
Hanging up my hat for 2020?
If the Covid pandemic is a war then I also wonder if Canada will benefit as we did when the US was in Vietnam. We got many of our very best potters and potter educators during the 60's and 70's. They came to Canada as conscientious objectors.
In the remainder of 2020, the US will not issue employment visas and that includes educational visitor programs. This is the perfect opportunity for Canada to attract the best and the brightest to our universities and high tech companies.
"Canada is awesome!" is the slogan Shopify uses in an effort to poach foreign talent blocked by The Smartest Man in Worlds immigrant visa ban. Shopify Inc. is a Canadian multinational e-commerce company headquartered in Ottawa, Ontario.
I heard that realtors in Montana during Covid have not been this busy for 11 years. I'm assuming that was people moving out of the city after the market correction. Well ,potters if Montana doesn't work out for you and and you are in for another 4 years of The Smartest Man in the World and the borders open up again "Canada is awesome!" I'm willing to bet some successful US companies are eyeing up Canada as a possible location. Mexico used to be their choice because of cheap labour. Maybe clean water, open spaces, health and safety will be the deal breaker for the brightest and best. Be well and safe my brothers and sisters of craft. Hugs to y'all!
