I travelled greatly because my father was a travelling academic, but I consider myself Canadian since I have lived there since I was 5. I do non-traditional legal work because I trained as a lawyer but didn't like practice. My mother was raised in New York but has slowly come to see herself as Cdn also. She is a retired social worker. My daughter is an 8 yr old girl in french immersion grade 3. We have all been to New York many times before as we go most Thanksgivings.
