In spite of a bit of mocking from our neighbours about our taxes and socialized health care, U.S. News has ranked Canada as number 1 in the world for quality of life and 2nd for Best Country Overall. You get what you pay for.

That's not surprising. Peter Ustinov commented that Canada is what the USA would be if it was run by the Swiss.

Why do motorcyclists love these cold places?   Riding season is far too short.

Sorry,   Vancouver ..... not REAL Canada.    But don't get your shorts into a knot.  If you didn't get to walk to the community league/pond and go skating in the winter,   you're not a real Canadian,   merely a Canadian wannabe.


BTW   "Queen's " Commission ...... don't make me go there.     Twofinger

That's why we like Vancouver (it ain't real Canada)

But the girlies in Mobtreal are still more better looking than the ladies in Vancouver.  Bigsmile


On occasion the night of, but the day after, Vancouver wins every time.
