RE: Working in the Canadian oil sands: 6 figures in 6 months!
Looks like the Canadian government is facing some pressure lately over the use of the Temporary Foreign Worker Program, there was some scandal involving a major Canadian bank hiring Indians or something:

Not sure how this could potentially affect any skilled tradesmen wanting in on the oil sands cash or the Filipino burger flippers in Alberta because according to this other article, "Alberta town would be 'shut down' without foreign workers": http://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/alberta-tow...-1.1236262

Don’t sweat the petty things, pet the sweaty things.
