Microsoft's Canada center trumps international borders

Microsoft, in a bold move, looks to trump governmental efforts to counter immigration:
"The facility, at a yet-to-be-announced location in the Vancouver area, will have space for 200 employees initially, with room to grow, the company said. Microsoft said it chose Vancouver based on factors including the city's diverse population, its status as 'a global gateway' and its proximity to Redmond.

However, in announcing the facility, Microsoft also said the Vancouver office will help the company 'recruit and retain highly skilled people affected by immigration issues in the U.S.'"
Economics and globalization are making political borders irrelevant. That is the new reality. Are you ready?
