He obviously made a copy/paste mistake. Here's his other message: http://www.canadavisa.com/canada-immigr ... 646.0.html

(Here's Spain and Norway too.)

Are you looking for sources in Finnish or English?

We have the major newspaper Helsingin Sanomat, some smaller newspapers, two tabloids, the public broadcasting company YLE, a few commercial TV and radio stations... and that's about it.

Hi!
What's your point, Finlandniels?
Do we have any reason to suppose that you are any serious at all?
Seems like you'll be moving to all over the places to do your mastersl, to Canada, to Norway, to Spain.... where else?
