Nixon Brought me to Canada

STORY BY: Nancy Dobbs
YEAR: 1970
LOCATION: Victoria, BC

Nancy tells us how she was an American who moved to Canada in 1970. She often says that "Nixon brought me", because she didn't want to pay taxes for the Vietnam War, and the draft was not an issue in Canada. Had she not come to Canada, she would not have given birth to her daughter - whose husband is an old friend of BOOM creator Rick Miller. Thanks for sharing, Nancy.
