RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
Thanks for that, Kick.

Anyone have any word on unskilled Americans getting up there? Is it a hassle? How long does it take to get the visa? I'm getting the vibe from this thread that it's hard for Americans.

I'm leaning pretty heavily towards hopping on all of this, and I'm willing to go to North Dakota if necessary, but Canada definitely looks like a better place to be rooted lifestyle-wise.

"The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe.
To be your own man is a hard business. If you try it, you'll be lonely often, and sometimes
frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself." - Kipling
