"We had enough money for the fare to Montreal and about 40 dollars after... we didn't care, we really believed that Canada was the place where, if you had enough money to buy a pick and shovel, you dig the gold off the streets" (John Laxton)

Cliff Michelmore reports on John Laxton, a very rich and highly successful lawyer living in Vancouver. Laxton, a working-class, grammar-school boy, was brought up in Oldham, then took a degree in Law at Newcastle University. But he never practised in Britain because he felt that the barriers to someone from his background were too great. So, in 1957, he and his wife went West. Laxton explains the trouble he had getting started, but how and why he (and other immigrants) can make it in Canada.
