Hopefully one doesn't have to be Canadian to join this group, do they? To be honest, I'd really like to move to Canada.

We Canadians will take anyone because after one generation even the kids tropical immigrants are playing hockey, drinking beer, saying eh and eating maple syrup on their poutine.


Welcome. (and No I don't know your cousin Dave in Calgary).

Thank you. You don't know my cousin Dave? Everyone knows him. He's the guy that wears clothes. You know who I'm talking about. Walks upright. The guy with the face. Just kidding. I don't have a cousin in Calgary. As far as I know. Lol

@Captain747ex I know you got teased on this post. As for my comment, it's a question that many Canadian relates to i.e. an American asking if we know such and such that live 621 miles (1000 km) away thinking every Canadian knows every other Canadian. Again welcome!

@Lukian I know what your saying. I was only joking along. I don't get why people think each Canadian knows everyone else. It doesn't make sense to me. Thanks for being so welcoming.


We welcome you. We promise not to put you in a cage and desperate you from family like some countries do..

@Tommy19 Thank you, I appreciate that. Not a policy I would have thought up let alone implement. I have no idea how these people can sleep at night knowing what they have done. Yeah, nothing I'm proud of. What an embarrassment.


I'm thinking about starting a new Group called 'Americans who wish they were Canadian' , I think it could be really popular. Americans could share their interesting stories about the metric system and how nice it is up here what with all the free health care and the lack of slums. They could also express shock at discovering that Canadians have a lot of guns and know how to use them too, as a tool and not just as something to hang off your hip as a fashion accessory.

@Silverwhisper While there are a few Americans who think it would be as easy as just packing their bags and showing up on Canada's doorstep, sort of like moving to Hawaii or Peurto Rico, it is a bit more complicated than that. Not as complicated as it is for a Canadian to immigrate to the US but still complicated as we Canadians well know. I still think there should be a practical skills test for all new immigrants involving drinking beer while following an NHL game without the smart puck to help them.

If you do start a group like that, let me know. I'd definitely join.

@Silverwhisper For me, this really didn't have anything to do with trump. At least not at first. I've wanting to relocate to Canada for a while now. I know it won't be like packing up and just cross the border. I wouldn't expect that. I have always enjoyed going to Canada, I visited a lot prior to the September 11th attacks. Then it became more difficult to cross the border.

@Silverwhisper, @Surfpirate Well, if I had to drink beer while watching the Puck at an NHL game, I'd fail the drinking beer part. It's not my choice of alcoholic beverage. I can keep track of the Puck with out that horrendous smart Puck. Worst thing ever.

@Silverwhisper Just move to the Upper Peninsula and you'll basically be a Canadian without having to go through all those immigration hoops.

@Captain747ex Everyone should have a passport to my way of thinking but I have done a lot of travelling over the years. Getting to Canada should be pretty easy, it's getting back that can be a hassle, US Customs can be a real challenge, even when you are super polite and have nothing to hide or declare.

@Surfpirate I'll keep that one in mind. Lol

@Surfpirate, @Silverwhisper Coffee isn't too bad and white wine is pretty good too. Your recipe for bread pudding sounds pretty good too.


We Canadians are a welcoming lot. ?

That's good. I like Canada. I went to Toronto once and would really like to go again, hopefully for longer than a week. I had a great time.

@Captain747ex Yes Toronto is like that, very multi-cultural with people from all over the world living there you would almost think it was a world unto itself, many Torontonians definitely think so. 😀

@Athena It is such a great city. I want to live in a norther Toronto suburb if I am ever able to relocate. I figure that with an Aviation background I could either work at the airport, one of the airlines, or one of the several charter/corporate aircraft operators in the area. Converting to metric would be a small hurdle at first.

@Athena Not too bad then. For the driving, my car can register in MPH or KPH. I thought that was pretty interesting.

I do like your currency. It is more colorful. I still have some 1 and 2 coins from when I went to Toronto. I am kind of glad that learning French would not be as crucial, bit I am open to learning a new language.

I really do appreciate all the insight that you, and everyone else, have given me.

Posted by SnowyOwlDefinitely a white xmas again this year. This year I think I will gift myself a fill up of our propane tank, that's a thousand bucks right there.

Posted by bookofmoronsAlways love to share this at Thanksgiving (Although Fiona stripped our fall foliage off so colours are few and far between this year . . sigh)

Posted by QuidamOutrepontSome major change

Posted by bookofmoronsheard that nonsense from the local and Ottawa tantrum convoy at least a dozen times. If you're gonna "overthrow the government", you should at least know which country you're in.

Posted by SnowyOwlJust for Laughs. :D

Posted by QuidamOutrepont"Don't be sad. We could be in Ottawa, living in tyranny."

Posted by SnowyOwlSoon the occupiers who feel privileged will realize that privileges are not rights and hopefully leave and go home.

Posted by SnowyOwlIt's easy to believe that you are in the majority when you live in an echo chamber.

Posted by actofdogNinety percent of Canadian truckers are vaccinated so the ''freedom convoy'' is useless and has no end game, plus it is illegal now they only had a two day permit.
