From: Toronto Canada
What continent is Toronto on anyways?
Toronto - Tor - on - to - (enunciated in a single syllable - Tarana) and indeed Canada now reside in the continent of euphoria... at least since the 2008 economic crisis.
Minor governmental deficits under control, Bankers with ethics, low unemployment...indeed the Blue Jays, Toronto Raptors both actually competitive...well the NewYorker proclaimed "Canada is cool" in the same fashion no doubt that the "Big Bang Theory" is the most popular show. Boring is "in".
We exported our most "boring cultural spies" to infest the USofA - Wayne Gretzky, Mike Meyers, and Nickleback....our nefarious plan is working.
Hey Macclan5, what you say about Canada and Winnipeg in particular is most inaccurate!
Firstly, most Molson products are understrength and unsuitable for mainlining. But in the last two decades Canada has sprouted some mighty fine micro-brews that will do the job. And sometimes we import some good off-shore ales like "Wee Angry Scot".
Secondly, although Winnipeg winters have a deserved wicked reputation (more because of the wind than the temperature), the summers are glorious - warm enough for a T-shirt, cool enough that you can stand to be outside at high-sun. Our a/c bills are considerably lower than sticky climes! I know because I lived in Southern Ontario for three years, and I got sun-cooked at poolside in Las Vegas in late March!
I would never disparage Winnipeg (Winterpeg).
The city may be cold in winter but the people are intelligent and warm.
The beer debate is worthy of a taste off....PM me if you come this way.
However Sir BB you too have failed to fully disclose the truth of summers.
The Mosquitoes (in summer) in Winnipeg are about the same size and weight as an F4F Wildcat! And I do mean with drop tanks and a bomb load.
