(Hamilton, Ontario, Canada)
When I came to Canada I was in my early 20s and emigrated here on my own.
The first few months were lonely but I got on with the guys I worked with and I soon made friends and it was through one of my friends at work that I met my wife.
My mate was having a BBQ and invited me along, I think he felt sorry for me.
Anyway, one of his wife's friends was there and we talked for a bit, as you do, and we got along really well – she had a cute Canadian accent!
We have been married for 35 years now and have three adult children.
If I hadn't come to this country I wouldn't have had the great life I have had – no regrets from me!
