Las Vegas actually is not bad.....not much humidity, 30C+ hot days much more bearable than Florida or many Asian destinations


Sorry, to me Saskatoon is a freezing hellhole.


I agree completely with Mikeyc...most people think warmer weather is better because, simply it is.....no other way around it.....this is why someone built "hellhole" Las Vegas in the middle of the desert but nobody will ever build something similar in Yukon....I rather deal every time with one day of 35C+ in Miami in summer than a day of minus 20 in Toronto in winter....

I think it's strange how nowadays Britain is treated like an incredibly foreign country, while the average Canadian is pretty much indifferent to the fact that we're a different country from the United States. A lot of people with "Canadian pride" tend to spit out the same kind of "U-S-A", "Red White and Blue" language but for Canada. That's not us. We have a 400 year history with ties to Britain. The Queen living in Buckingham palace is equally ours as it is Britain's. The American media has completed warped our values. There shouldn't be anywhere near this much resistance to people coming to Canada from any country, whatever the reason. Let alone the country we share 400 years of ties with. State borders should protect us from invasions, economic domination by other countries and corporate monopolies. Not Tom, Dick or Harry (or José, Sanjay and Ahmed) wanting to start a new life in Canada

Corporate monopolies? I'm mainly referring to foreign companies here. Our businesses should be able to grow without a larger company from a larger economy stealing their business.

You are mixing things up. Canada's relationship with the British goes back about 250 years. The country with the 400 year relationship with Canada is France.

Cabot wasn't French. Nor was the Hudson Bay Company.

Depends what part of Canada you're referring to. It's a bit of a stretch yes, but Rupert's Land, the Arctic, Newfoundland and Nova Scotia have had British influence for close to 400 years.

There were very very few British residents in Canada until the 1770s.
