Yeah it's kinda hard to hide that. Mosquitoes the size of small pigeons....

All Canadians know that Victoria and Comox Valley BC are Gods Country where everything is peachy and beautiful and clean!

Lets just say I'm NOT looking forward to the cross country trip if I'm pregnant, because my DH is gonna get posted in June, and if this cycle is promising, I'll be out to *here* pregnant by then and well DND doesn't cover train trips, and planes wont take me. YAY Prairies in the summer while pregnant woooohoooohooooo

BAH

I'm thinkin Winnepeg aint that bad now, at least it's not far far far...

Sure it might be a nice city and all, with it's obvious draw backs, like only two seasons, bitter cold and mosquito. But man, does anyone know if midwifery is covered by the MB medicare because for crying out loud I am NOT gonna birth in that hospital *shudder* if that happens no THANK YOU. I'd go UC before I went there.

EEEAAASYYY there!
As a born and bred Winnipegger, I take offence to you slamming my city because of a hospital's mistake (s)
Just so you know (because obviously, you've never been there), Winnipeg has 4 -count them, 4 seasons!
A much welcomed spring starting on April
A hot (albeit mosquito fouled summer)
A beautiful, usually warm fall (with the added Indian summers from Alberta)And a MUCH, MUCH warmer winter than when I lived there even 10 years ago.
Last winter we got a blizzard on Dec. 30. (It needs to be warm to snow, which is why they are more common in the spring)

I'm sure there can be nasty things said about every place on earth. But unless you've lived there, you shouldn't slam a place based on hearsay.

Sandy (who is a bit surprised that I got so protective of Winnipeg. LOL)

And I've been there...well through there, and over there...so it's not like I've never really ever BEEN there..just passed through.

Bah. Rick Mercer makes fun of Winnepeg all the time. You just let him because he's famous

Let's give peace a chance and make fun of Quebec then shall we?

Are you kidding me?? It can get into the high 90's there during July and Aug. (Although last summer did suck)
As someone who has also lived in Quebec, I can and do make fun of it.
So I can live with that!

July and Aug fall into the Mosquito season.

And I can and do Make fun of Quebec too, I'm half French, my DH is full French.

Hell he was at his school the other day, and some Quebecer private damn near ran him and his fellow classmates over. My DH is a Cpl, the dummy was a Private, so my DH was allowed to dress him down. My DH went "ESTI QUEBEQUOIS!!" And it made everyone laugh because here was this french guy bitching about french guys!

Hey have you noticed that the ambient noise level is exponentially proportional to the amount of Quebecers in a room?

There's a real equation for it my DH made up

Q > 4 = N^8

Q beign the number of Quebecers and N = the noise level. Get it?

I love my family I really and truly do...

I live in North Dakota, 150 miles south of Winnipeg (but not far enough south to be any warmer!)

We get to pick from any number of season descriptions:

1. Winter 2. Bad sledding (though it's so flat here there isn't much sledding)

1. Winter 2. Road construction

1. Winter 2. Late winter 3. Mosquito 4. Almost winter


Actually, we do have lovely spring and fall weather - but usually they fall on weekdays.

I would rather endure cold than heat. One can always put on more clothes to stay warm - there's a limit to how much I can take off!

And we do get the most delightful Northern Lights.

If the chips are down, the buffalo is empty.

This is a hoot watching all of you Eskimos trying to defend that place for a guy that thinks being born this far north (Georgia) was a birth defect. :

Don't let any "Eskimos" hear you call them that! They'll string you up!
Eskimo means meat eater in English.
The PC term is now Inuit. Pronounced: in-u-eet.

I also just want to let the southern boy to know FTR, we do NOT live in igloos!

My cousin moved to Canada and spent nearly 10 years convincing her father that she didn't live in an igloo or take a team of dogs with sled to do the grocery shopping (she lives on Vancouver Island which I hear is quite mild).

As a Canadian living in the U.S. permanently, I have seriously had many, many people asking me what it was like to live in an igloo. I thought that certainly they must be joking, but I'd look and see that, no, they were completely serious.

On Vancouver Island, it rarely even snows, maybe a few days a year in a cold year. There'd be no ice or snow to make an igloo with. Too funny!

If we knew when they were coming, we could take the day off!! Oh, and they aren't usually consecutive.

Okay, I recently shared this gem in a TAO thread about Canada (and misperceptions thereof) and I think many of you will enjoy it, as well:
