  2. Got to love those Canadians, to tolerate their weather takes guts.
    Plus the fact that my wife was born in Canada and lived in the Yukon.
    A country I have yet to visit, old age permitting.
    Cheers gp

    I remember the heated discussions re a “new” Canadian Flag. Fifty years later, – I still like it an am proud of it.

    • I can’t complain myself. Every summer I DO complain about the constant 90-100*F temps – I asked for the weather in the 40’s and I’m enjoying it. Of course this is nothing like what the NE part of the country is getting!

  15. I lived near the American Canadian border in Northern New York. Many fond memories of trips into Canada. In fact my wife and I went this summer. Great people and a great country. Also much of my Mother’s family came from Canada. Also they do have a great looking flag.
