I think Cloutier had a bad night against Minnesota.

<<was insulted by the ladies at the welcome station because of their bigoted beliefs.>>

It is just so hard to get good help these days.

One of our ministers was speaking in NYC today, trying
(most solicitously) to revive a dead tourism industry in Toronto
by getting Americans to visit. This he does by addressing
his comments to the US Travel Writers' Association.

It doesn't help that various public figures in Canada said
some awful things about the US in the past few months.
Politicians on both sides of the border are doing their best
to patch this up but only a few percentage points worth of
Americans are mean-spirited, 'patriotic' grudge-holders.

This type of individual won't even recognize that much of the
money he'd spend in Canada would just end up in the US
bottom line anyway. He doesn't think that much about it.

What do I think of Canada?

Fan-bloody-tastic!.. But then I've only seen a
smidgen of the West coast ... I should probably
upgrade my opinion given the reports I've
heard about the rest of it.

The only "Canadian" I met that I didn't like was
a bleedin English exile ... a particularly irritatingly
pompous twat playin at being some suedo
colonial rajh.

I can't wait to go back and continue my
explorations ... but methinks it's gonna take
several lifetimes. :D

It is such a big country, I have lived here my whole life, all 27 years, I hitch-hiked from one end to the other a few times & I must say I have many more places still to see. I had a friend who wanted to see all of Canada(he is from Bermuda) He told me it would take him forever. For those who don`t know Bermuda is only 21 miles squared. I walked from one end to the oter in an afternoon. Keep em coming, I want to Know what you all think.

Vive le Canada Libre!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think for this disillusioned American, Canada is the promised land. At least for the near future.

Here in QC the minimum wage is 7.30, a shame for a G7 country. There are a lot of "professional" chomeurs, i.e. people that do not work for generations and live on Welfare benefits.
Quebec has observed an economical degradation for the past 20 years. How about other provinces ? What is the minimum wage in Alberta or BC ?

Imports: Stuff from the USA, but labeled in both french and english
Exports: Hockey players, bad weather, dogs

Nice people (almost too nice) ;)

Beautiful geography, wonderful camping.

RCMP doesn't (or didn't anyhow) much care for US hitchhikers- and generally did their level best to do the little things to make life miserable for them.

Their political campaigns are low on hype and almost sane (budgetarily speaking)--nothing like the USA's. Same deal with their news programs.

I hear Canada's chock full of socialists, but you can't tell from looking at them.

Actually never been, but hope to get to go.....

I hear the views are breath taking and people are great.

I have spoken to a few Canadians and I love their accents. They are very polite and kind.

I was saddened by the advisory for not visiting there.

Other than Toronto, Alberta, and Saskatchewan (which I have read about), are there any other places in Canada which are note worthly to visit (more out of the way and unknown to the crowds).....

You need to talk to CHORNY for suggestions on travel
in the Parry Sound area. That's his neck of the woods.

It's quite beautiful up there. Lots of lakes and beach
opportunities. It's cottage country for Torontonians
going back many generations so the summer atmosphere
is suitably festive. My preference for that area would
be a long-established B&B where the hosts actually
care about your welfare as a tourist and can make
helpful suggestions.

Toronto is like a little NYC in the sense that there's
something for everyone.

Niagara will be memorable. The terrain around Niagara and
Toronto is surprisngly flat

I feel sorrow. The loss in WW2 was bad. I lost most of my male relatives that were of age. I don't think Canada ever recovered from the Big one and I feel sorrow.

RTH: Depends where you're coming from. If you are east,
then Quebec City is a must-see. If you are west, then try
Victoria and Vancouver Island, generally.

Unless you are a city person and drawn to the city, then
why not just give TO a pass like Torontonians who have
their druthers do and get up to the lakes?

If you like auto racing, then perhaps you would be lucky
enough to be in the area when they run the F-1
Canadian Grand Prix and make it a centerpiece event
of your trip. I've been to two of these and don't regret it
for a minute but then I'm a car buff.
