I truly hope these are isolated incidents from a few ignorant people and not the general consensus. Canadians come here to flee the snow and cold weather. We stay a maximum of 6 months, pay the local property taxes & H.O.A. Fees, support the local economy, and forge close friendships with many of our neighbours to the south. I think Leslie and I have more friends in the U.S. than we do in Canada these days and I know they enjoy spending time with us during our brief visits to Phoenix.
