Another glorious Canadian winter. And, as I write this post, in our hometown, we are colder than the North Pole.
The brutal cold is a big reason why so many Canadians go south in the winter in their retirement years. I am hoping that U.S. lawmakers will pass H.R. 3513, the Canadian Snowbird Visa Act. The legislation, proposed by Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-N.Y.) and Rep. Ted Deutch (D-Fla), would extend the time Canadian citizens, aged 50 or older, may stay in the United States from 6 months to 8 months.
And that would suit us just fine.
Canada is a beautiful country and in certain regions, between May and October, the weather patterns are quite pleasant. But whenever winter hits hard, it can get cold.
Really, really cold.
On my bucket list for retirement is never to be cold again.
