Hi LS,
Right. If I decided to leave for Canada, I would be emigrant for my country, people, but immigrant for Canadians.

Hello,
You're exactly right. There was a mistake when the answer was input into the system. It will be changed right away.
Thanks for the input.

Hi Amy,

You are right, I've made the change now and it will go online next week when Mr. Gromov returns to the office.
Thanks a lot for your help.
