More power to the gent. It is nice to read success stories like this, true rags to riches stories, that involved nothing more than hard work, and a good idea.

Oh, and a country willing to take an immigrant, that was hungry for nothing more than success. It is this type of story, that makes me think about the words at the Statue of Liberty, and makes me feel that they got it right. This gent emigrated to Canada, but the words still ring true, regardless.

Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!
