Here, here.

Getting Harper out would be a great first step. One thing I respected about Chretien, he called shenanigans to Bush and co. when the situation dictated it.

This is a great thread! Wish I could have read something like this before I moved to Canada. Yes, I fell for the whole "some Newfoundlanders live in igloos" thing. Travelling up north certainly was a disappointment, haha.

Zoomerang, I'm glad you brought up the whole UK thing. It was probably the thing that struck me as being most strange when I first arrived here, second only to the shitload of trees clustered all over the place. You're almost just as likely to see the Union Jack as you are to see the Canadian flag. It's actually almost quite bizarre (but in a good way) to drive around Newfoundland. You're guaranteed to see any combination of the Canadian flag, the Union Jack, the Republic of Newfoundland flag and the provincial Newfoundland flag anywhere you go. I like it that Canada still has such strong ties to Britain. I don't exactly know why, I just do. Since I'm a foreigner, I can say with little bias that Canadians outside of Quebec really are more like the English and less like the Americans. Which is, of course, contrary to the beliefs of most people around the world.

Looking forward to that day when I can officially become one of you guys. If only it didn't take so bloody long. Interestingly enough, getting back to Zoomerang's point, you have to swear allegiance to the Queen when you become a citizen of Canada!

I don't know how it is in other provinces but you never see the Union Jack here. Ever.

Weird! It's everywhere here. Even at the university in front of the administration building.

"Everyone has heard that the tragedy of Canada is that they had the
opportunity to have French cuisine, British culture, and American
technology, and they ended up with British cuisine, American culture,
and French technology?"

not at all true, anitram and i don't even live in your province.

do i have to remind you what your provincial flag looks like?



both the union jack and the cross.

gibson girl what do you mean though... does the union jack fly on it's own? like the entire flag is the union jack? cause in manitoba i don't ever see that... it just exists in our red ensign or however you spell it.

Which I find terribly sad, as I want nothing more than to be able to swear allegiance to this beautiful, fabulous country. Honestly, I have been eligible for years and I long for the day I can take an oath to swear allegiance to CANADA.

This country is amazing

Yeah, it flies on its own. Maybe Newfoundland is just weird. I'll see if I can find some photos. There are loads of places around here where you'll find the Canadian flag, the Newfoundland flag and the Union Jack all flying together.

I think she lives somewhere in Alberta.

Blah, I must say, the one thing I don't like about Canada is the weather. Anymore, at least. When we first got here it was a blast. It was snowing the day we first set foot on Canadian soil and neither of us had ever seen snow before. The lowest temperature I had ever experienced was 8 degrees, or something close to that! I remember the neighbours looking quizzically at us when we all set out to shovel the driveway together with huge grins on our faces. My sister and I actually fought over which one of us was going to put the salt down.

Now (and especially since I rely on public transport) I hate snow and winter in general.
