  1. Go to the San Carlos forum and ask there. They are much more in tune with what you want to know...
  2. True. And not everyone receiving a Residente Permanente is American so the use of the term Green Card is both confusing and inaccurate.
  3. We frequently drive down to Mexico from Vancouver Island at the time of year stated. Last winter it was the second week of December. We keep a close eye on the Siskiyou Pass situation. If there is snow or the threat of snow we head over to the coast on 101 and come down the Oregon Coast through California to Ukiah and then head over to Interstate 5. Just reverse for going north.
  4. Listen to Ferret and Sonia. I am Canadian and have been living part time at the Lake since 1999. It seems the ONLY valid reason for moving your dad down to Mexico is the climate. There are many smaller communities in BC where the weather is much improved over Ontario, and which are friendly and supportive communities with loads of activities for seniors. Consider this alternative. Your message reveals your complete naivite about Mexico and the difficulties that would face your dad.
  5. You might want to re-think your plan to apply for a RT in Mexico before you take the oath of citizenship for Canada. http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/resources/tools/cit/grant/residence/intention.asp
  6. Excuse me, but I have been on Armour Thyroid for the past 14 years and never have had problems obtaining it in the US. I obtain it in Portland Ore where my family doctor is, but now that we are living in British Columbia I can obtain a similar natural product here. I manage my hypothyroidism much better on natural dissicated pig thyroid. My doctor does blood work regularly and my lab results are stable. Many people do better on Armour Thyroid. For them, it is worth the effort to find an endochrinologist who will prescribe it.
