Default Not Boring

Canada is definitely NOT boring. At all. There is so much to see and do in this very large and varied country.

In fact if one finds Canada boring it might not be about Canada ,maybe the complainant is just a boring person.Life is what you make of it.

^^^This is generally the root cause when someone fusses about something being boring

I don't understand personally how someone can broad brush an entire country as 'boring' anyhow, especially one as large and varied as Canada.

I find Canada interesting and love to visit The part that I want to make my next visit to is Newfoundland/Labrador.

Marie Joseph? I'm I detecting a possibility of some Canadian ancestry?

Bored people are usually boring. As much fun to be around as a teenage believing the whole world is against them

This idea that Canada is boring, probably stems from people who really don't know much about Canada, probably have never been, or been to one place.

People don't hear much about Canada on their own news, so assume nothing is here, nothing is happening and it's just snow and ice.

I love Montreal and Quebec City. I'd go back to each 100x if it made sense. Toronto is ok, but everybody should go at least once. The Maritime provinces are beautiful and quite a bit more conservative than the rest of Canada from my own observation. The Canadian Rockies have some breath taking scenery, hardly boring.

There's no place on earth that I have visited that was boring on the first visit. There's always something new and different to see. After a while, some places get routine, but boring is reserved for watching paint dry in my world.

Not to totally derail a seemingly wandering thread, but there's a pretty high price paid for that social order. As nice as the benefits are, individualism and non-conformity pay dearly.

Its funny whenever I hear people saying/ calling Canada a quote on quote "Small" Country, especially considering the fact that it has the largest Landmass on Earth & also a bigger Population than almost every Single Major Metropolitan Area on Earth. (Save for Tokyo), & even Tokyo will be surpassed in Population by Canada in/ within the next 3-4 years or so, making it zero @ that point. (& Canada is also larger in Population than about 87% of the World's Countries). It's also the 10th Largest Economy in the World, but yes relative to the US Canada is a "Small" Country but in reality it's actually a very big one & has several Cities/ Metropolitan Areas already that are larger than anywhere between 20-30 Countries or more. To me though/ however a real "Small" Country would be a Country with a Population under 10 Million, realistically this would be "Small" as it would likely even have fewer problems than Canada. (Which is already a pretty placid & peaceful enough place as it is). I think what's fair though is to call Canada a "Medium Sized" Country, most Countries in the World Fall within the Canada Population Range, their are more Countries between 30 to 45 Million in Population total than say 100 Million+
