be careful dealing with the USA As a Canadian living relatively close to the USA ,that is a country I never plan to invest in. Not sure I could ever afford enough insurance. They will sue you for everything and anything if the oppurtunity arises.Even if it is their fault , they will find a way to pass the blame on you. Even criminals have sued and won against their victims. Being so far away how can you possibly manage/oversee your investment? Just my thoughts, but I'm sure we get more news stories than you do which may have tainted my perspective.
