  1. Canadians are only polite when not drunk. The Trailer Park Boys are always drunk (and stoned)… Have you ever seen Julian without a rum & coke? Have you ever heard him apologize?

    I think Curling was invented by a drunk Canadian who was bored while ice fishing.

  2. Hey Lingo – are you a Canuck?

    Pretty cool – I love it up there. Beautiful place. I could have sworn that Lacrosse was the national sport.

    I’m actually waiting patiently for Hockey get going again.

    Go Avs!

  3. I’m actually NOT a Canadian Citizen… I am considered a Canadian Landed Immigrant! I hail from Wales U.K. but moved here in the early 80s.

    I guess I had better get around to getting my citizenship… Technically, if I did something wrong, I could be deported!

  4. That is pretty interesting – I have never been to Wales, but it’s on the list.

    You better behave yourself or they might nab ya.

    I need to get back up there – Vancouver is absolutely breathtaking. I’m into trees and mist and such. Cool, cool place.
