Election 2012: Canadians in America

Video: Canadian expat in ground zero of U.S. housing crisis describes why she still has hope in America Add to ...

Canadian Penny Stamp lives in Florida - a state hit hard about the housing crisis. In fact, she had to refinance her home. America is often depicted as a divided nation, she says. But it’s the ‘shining stars’ in her community that give her hope in America.

This is part of our U.S. Election 2012: Canadians in America series - expats talking about life and politics south of the border.

In a year when Americans must choose between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, The Globe and Mail has reached out to Canadians living across the U.S. to offer a unique perspective on a pivotal election. In the coming months our expat group of 50 Canadians – chosen from hundreds of submissions to offer a wide range of perspectives – will answer your questions, offer up their insights through blog posts and join in on-line discussions. Their personal stories and perspectives may well challenge your assumptions about American society and politics.
