Subject: Run away
  get your ass back home or get youself to a social worker and see if you can´t get some help. The street is no place to live. Once you go there it is very difficult to escape. I see it every day. Don is panning outside Shoppers Drug Mart right now. He used to come to BC to pick fruit in the summer. Then he decided it was easier just to stay here and live on the street. Then he got his first taste of Crack... and it helped him get through those nights that were cold. When I first met him he was a twenty something kid with an attitude and an interest in doing life his own way. Now, his teeth are gone, his skin is full of sores, his family has no idea where he is, he is addicted, and will likely be dead before he is 30.

Please, don´t become another Don.

I had ride alone with my friend´s dad who is a paramedic on hasting one midnight after our party, has nothing to do...

it´s like third world country there in East Van...

You could see some chicks look as hot as Pam Anderson, blonde and blue are doing crack....

I heard my friend said after less than a year, it turns you into old granny. That´s how bad it is....

drug problem is really my concern, when I decide to have a kid here in Canada. It´s really scare me...

The problem is with my current income I could only afford house in bad alley....sigh..

I am sure not everybody will agree with me, especially not you, my Russian runaway friend, but.. at this point I believe being sent back to Russia is actually a luxury vacation compared to becoming one like Don in Sharon´s story.

Show at least a little bit of brains by calling your parents and letting them know you are Ok. Make further decisions based on whatever they say on the phone. They cannot hurt you if you call them, but it is a very good way to KNOW what they think rather than guessing it. You may ruin the rest of your life because of errant assumptions, do you know that?!? If they worry about you they will tell you, if they want you to go to hell, they will also tell you that.. If they care, they will not waste probably the only chance to hear from you again. If they hang up the phone and refuse to talk to you, then get some professional help as Sharon suggested. Alone you can´t make it and you can´t make the library your residence. Nothing is free in this world, not even for you, my friend. Call me names if you wish, but listen to experienced people. Don´t listen to me, I only have an interest in Canadian skilled worker immigration, I am not a shrink or a social worker..

Take care!

here´s the sad part - Don does not live on the downtown east side. He sleeps behind a posh ladies clothing store in the South Granville shopping district. There are 4 of them. Don, Evan, Richard and Marnie (a girl). All under 30 and all with far to much life left to live to be doing what they do. I am sure if given the chance to do it over... they would have called home.

Runaway, this is not the time to play ´chicken´ with your parents. You have been given an opportunity for a different life from Russia. Take advantage of it.

Mr. Runaway, again Sharon and Uniden´s honest advice. Specially what Uniden told. At least give them the last chance. When you are out the situation is completely changed. They might have changed their mind. Yes, surely we don´t know the whole story. May be your parents are exceptional; but usually all of them never can think any harm for their kids, no matter how bad they are. At least you can talk with them, what´s wrong?

Worse case may be, go to Russia and stay there till you are adult. If you are so self confident then go to other provinces and start your life. Remember, if that´s case, you must not blame anybody else other than you in the future.

sorry I keep coming back on this...

runaway - I know it is cliche but 18 year old males don´t think straight. My nephew gave his parents hell for 5 years. Left home, changed schools 3 times, quit school 2 times, got in trouble with the police - you name it - he did it. His parents were heartbroken and were really at their wits end as to how to turn their kid around. Lance turned 19 and somehow, it was like flipping a switch. Maybe the Stupid Hormones slowed down. By the time he was 20 he said, Dad... I am so glad you have finally become normal and we understand each other! hmmmmmm not exactly sure who became normal, Dad or son.

Anyway... Lance now is married, has a daughter, as is telling his younger brother to smarten up.

Guess what

dear Run Away

Please try to understand your parents, there must be some reason why they want you to go to russia. If it is unreasonable call a social worker. You have rights as a PR.

I would say hang in there for a year and rethink later.

I am sure your parents mean well - all parents do but you only realize this after it is too late so please hang in...
