A great part of the attraction of Canada has to do with the great outdoors with the scenery, the wide open spaces, the hunting, fishing, camping, etc. Canada is the second biggest country in the world and most of it is wide open forest.

There are roughly one tenth the number of people living in Canada as in the United States and the winters are generally cold so most of the tourism occurs during the summer months although many people come in the winter to ski, hike, etc.

The American dollar always changes relative to Canada's dollar. Gas costs more than in the States and general prices overall a little more expensive. Most places will take American currency.

Gas is measured in litres. One liter measures 0.22 gallons or about 4.5 litres per gallon. They have $1 and $2 coins.

July 1st is Canada's Confederation Day.

The coolest places and events in Canada according to mainstream logic are as follows:

Banff, Alberta.
Calgary Stampede, big rodeo
Canadian Arctic, northern lights, polar bears.
Montreal Jazz Festival
Montreal Comedy Festival
Ottawa, ON, capital of Canada.
Quebec City, Quebec, city most like old Europe, winter carnival in February.
Vancouver, BC, beautiful city.
Victoria, BC, beautiful smaaler city
Wasaga Beach, north of Toronto
PEI north shore in the summer

Try #917 at the library for books about Canada.

People who can’t immigrate to the United States or England, often pick Canada as a third choice even though it’s cold there.

As a Canadian citizen, I believe we’re the most multicultural and gay country in the world. The United States has lots of racism. It’s not tolerated as much here. We’re about half white and half everything else which is a real mix. It’s not like the 1960s when we were 90% white.

Canada is nice in the summer, tolerable in the fall and spring and pretty cold for at least four months a year, Decemember until the end of March unless you live on the west coast which has a temperate climate all year long which is why retirees and rich Asian guys buy houses in Vancouver and Victoria.

For emergencies call 911.

Canada has vast stretches of untouched landscape. I’ve been in places where no human has ever been just ten miles outside of the city I live in called Halifax, Nova Scotia. They have good roads for where they have roads but much of the province is straight forest. It’s not like New Jersey where there are towns and people everywhere. It’s easy to walk ten miles into straight forest on the side of most roads. I’ve done it. I’ve been lost in the woods.

Most Canadians live in cities that are close to the American border.

The culture is freedom and live and let live.

The police are not allowed to stop people without probable cause.

We’re taxed too much but everybody gets free medical care.

The best way I can describe a Canadian is leave me alone, get out of my space, don’t bother me with your bullshit.
