    Been There And Studied It

    I was fortunate to be at Northwestern while R. Barry Farrell was still alive. I was in his Canadian Studies program. Probably the personal highpoint was getting a bit drunk with the late Robert Bourassa, Liberal Premier of Quebec. Rene Levesque came to NU also. I have always been...

    My family decided that we had to experience

    camping in Canada in the middle of summer...little did we know that our little pop up camper didn't have even close to the heat needed to counter the freezing nights we found...and the mosquitoes....were the size of small canaries...we came home with welts all over our faces...

    I Am Victor Meldrew Sometimes

    Last week the tree surgeon called to ask - for about the 20th time this year if I wanted conifers trimming. Not in a good mood to start with, I said 'only if it's free' - he said I can give you a good quote, so I said 'sod off'. He did.

    Visiting Canada

    The town I live in and have with my brother

    and sister and mother for about 10 years now is less than an hour from the US/Canada border. In 2 hours we can be in Winnipeg whereas it takes 3 times as long to get to the nearest major US city. Roughly 40% of the town's revenue comes from Canadians coming here every weekend...

    Several Times.

    I live in Michigan. I've gone to Maine on several occasions, and New York on several others. We almost always go through Canada on our way. I suppose I've never done anything truly of interest in the country. I've slept in a hotel there once or twice. I've been to some gas...

    Once I Went to Thunder Bay

    It was cool, the US dollar was kicking butt that day so I bought a bunch of stuff. The liqour is so much better up there, and stronger. It stayed light until midnight which was really weird to me. I just hung around town, went hiking, saw stuff, went shopping, drank a lot, went...

    Loved It!

    I went to Canada last year for a month. It was great. We went to Montreal because people speak French there and my mum wanted to practice speaking French. I had so much fun there though. I liked looking around at all the sights and exploring all the nice places. I liked walking...

    Canada, Eh?

    I went to Canada to see the Niagara Falls a few years after I visited France. All I remember is that there were **** shops on the street and I wanted to go in, but I was with my parents. I also remember their music video station.
