how shall I put this ... not entirely grounded in reality, based on pictures of mounties and pristine looking mountains and lakes.[/QUOTE]

Excuse blinkin' me, having just spent the last three years waiting to get me PR card, I am expecting a Canada full of lovely mounties, pristine looking mountains and lakes, and folks dressed as cowboys floating around on pink clouds inviting met BBQs, offering me jobs and generally being nice! I'm right? Right?

I'm hardly upset... but your employer would be upset if they knew how often during the day you posted here.... then you would be upset after they told you to knock it off or get another job.

Well done Steve - next we'll be worrying if we will be getting an 'anonymous' phone call at work describing our forum addictions.

I've been here long enough to consider myself truly Canadian and I can get a tad testy when people criticise Canada.

But that was totally childish and uncalled for.
