Well English and French are our official languages, I would suggest you become proficient in your primary language before you learn another, what happened to the poet with the silver tongue? This post looks like it was written under the influence?

Whats up with that Mathew?

Its not like.......

When you cross the border at Niagra Falls, hop on the 1st snowmobile and you will be there in no time.

Canada is not much different than most of the US. Southern Ontario, which is where I live is at the same latitude as Northern California.
Canada is the 2nd largest country in the world, the US is 4th.
It is an extemely large place, It has great expances of rough and rugged country, but it also has some of the most cossmopolitan cities also.

We are not a bunch of simple eskimos like a lot of people think, although we have some....lol

If you live in the United states and have never visited Canada- Shame on you! Canada is very cool place. You'll notice the people are more easy going and don't seem to have much to prove, which is refreshing. The cities are clean and safe and they have socialized health care policies that are wonderful.

sites

If you want to see sites in Canada I would have to recommend the okanogan in the summer. In winter I would recommend the Rockies. And if you have the money, reliable 4X4, gas cans and likeness for bugs, try the far north.

Mathjew;
I've been there several times showing my car, And there is not much difference . Every thing is high priced, like gas and cigs.
And they talk about the same, eh. Hotels and motels down town are very expensive, I guess it's the taxes. Make sure you have good car Ins. because they drive really wild there.eh. The mountains are beautiful winter or summer especially around Calgary.
After the snow has been on the ground for several weeks in the cities it looks a little trashy, with all the trash a city has and the melting and freezing and wind. I have made a lot of friends there over the years, and they treat me like royalty. I love it.eh. Hope you get to visit some day.

Troy

If you want a quick primer on Canada, I would pick up a couple of Stompin Tom CDs. He sums it up like no other!

The only section of Canada that I've visited is Ontario (Quetico Provincial Park) just across the border from the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) in Minnesota. Beautiful country and some of the best fishing anywhere.

My friend and i were just up in Hamilton/ Waterdown Last weekend, picking up a recent ebay find. He goes up there quite frequently, so he had a line on a couple good pubs. We stopped at the winking Judge in Hamilton prior to returning to the US. It's like a bar in someone's house.

Canada
Good beer
Cool relaxing pubs.
Tim Horton's
Bob and Doug

They give so much and ask so little.

Iv'e been to Oskosh Wi. Every bodies house is just like a bar....lol

By the way, lay off the Tim Hortons when up here. Its very addictive. When we go to the US, we have withdrawls, and as soon as we cross back into Canada, we have to hit the 1st Tims for a fix.

Yup, no doubt about it, we drink waaaaaayyyyy too much coffee. Come to Friendly Manitoba.....you have to see Grand Beach--one of the top ten beaches in the world--and Clear Lake. It's one of the deepest glacier lakes in the world--they still haven't found bottom in some places--and clear right to the bottom. I'm serious even where it's over 50 feet deep you can see the bottom. don't swim in it though, very cold

Chickie.
