Looking for advice on making the move from US to Canada (AB). I’ve done some research and it doesn’t seem as if the licensing requirement is overly burdensome. Anyone have first-hand knowledge or know of someone who has made the transition? I’m currently in my fourth year of civil litigation PI, and my GF has about 2.5 years experience in criminal. I have Canadian family members.

Not sure why all the fake news about the post office. It was probably a distraction from the UAE-Israel win. Here are FACTS: • USPS received a $10b loan via the CARES Act that will sustain it through 2021. • USPS notified states weeks ago that some state ballot request deadlines & reasonable mail delivery times were incompatible. • Trump established a task force to fix the PO.
