    You got no time for short stories.
    Living in Canada you need to spend a lot of time making your house wolf proof.
    Posting on here you need to do the same thing with your psyche.

    So what have you learned?

    Things in British Columbia and Quebec are much different than they are here in the Maritime provinces. You can't say because you been to two Provinces you know Canada, all you know is the little you learned in BC and Quebec.

    I didn't say I know Canada.
    I just said I have spent a lot of time in Quebec and BC.
    My original post was meant to be light hearted but I see it has fallen on deaf ground and stony ears.

    Very cold in winter. Summer ok.
    Lots of trees, mountains and lakes.
    Speak French in Quebec. Export a lot of iron ore.
    English in BC. Export a lot of timber products.
    Exporting stuff was my reason for being there.

    You must have been to both places when it wasn't a hot summer.

    Did you happen to notice how big the trees were in BC?

    Did you know that in Quebec they speak both English and French?

    What do you export?....You aren't involved in that weed crap we got over here are you? 😛 😉

    No weed.
    Have not been there for 18 years.

    Exported Iron ore from Quebec and timber products from BC.
    Your right about the summers, they are pretty decent.

    Just saw the trees through a car window ,they looked big.

    Our trees here in Nova Scotia look like little twigs compared to the trees in BC.

    As you know the Government of Canada is now in on making money from weed.

    I've been told it is not as good as the illegal stuff so people are going back to their suppliers. Everyone is allowed a certain amount on them so very hard to control as to where it came from.

    Interesting.
