((((((HUGS))))))) to you and your dh.
I'm so sorry. I have to say that it sounds like his parents are using emotionally charged (and somewhat abusive) language in order to try and manipulate your dh. Absolutely they are trying to make him 'choose' because then they can play the victim card.
I realize that this may be a long shot but one of the recommendations that we have made for families dealing with similar 'abusive' relationships is to reach out for couples counseling to help you both gain the tools and resources needed with dealing with this type of bullying behavior. Again - this is NOT because you and your dh are having marital problems but instead working TOGETHER to face this huge challenge. Even being able to share a phone consultation to seek advice could be worthwhile.
Unfortunately (and quite honestly) it sounds as if this crew will continue using and draining your dh's (and YOUR!) generosity until it is depleted and then they will move on to prey on someone new.
Sending you continued positive thoughts and prayers that you both can get some relief soon!
If they have been in Ontario for 3 months they qualify for OHIP (or whatever the name is now) and can get their health cards. I do find it strange to want 2 pieces of photo id, then again I did get asked for 2 pieces one time for a job and my government employee id worked for that.
Sounds like they need to move out here. There are tons of jobs and a lot of people are from the East coast.

Margaret, FIL and BIL were out there a few times over the last few years, but they didn't like it I guess (not really sure the details of why they went back east). I admit it would be better out there, lots of jobs in construction and reno which is what they do, especially after the Calgary flood. DH's uncle has a fishing boat in the spring/summer/fall but instead of going on seasonal EI (like most east coasters) in winter, he goes out west to work.
