On the other hand, I’d be lying if I said that late 2008 – and 2009 in its entirety – was easy.

That’s why articles like this one is very encouraging:

“Unemployment rate falls to surprise 7.9%” – National Post

The article reports that Canada has added over 400,000 jobs since July, 2009, “recouping almost all of the jobs lost in a slump that began in the second half of 2008”.

This makes me smile.
