Phone charges, homeless people, bank charges, crap driving, gangland violence, everywhere shutting early, interventionist government, institutional racism, jobsworth attitude, RCMP corruption, more homeless people.

Cinnabon is ok though, no? Not sure what the topping they use is though but don't think it's cheese?

crime

mozzies

fish flys

Shops that dont open til noon on sundays

Having to buy a new driving licence every week - Ive had 3 and been here for 18 months!

I could go on , but then it is friday evening, what do you expect!
What's putine? I was under the impression that crime in Canada was low? I guess not

A terrible idea indeed. As if the baked beans weren't bad enough in the first place. There are even worse things too. Streaky bacon, lousy curry and kebabs, no squash, the KFC isn't as good, bright green cole slaw with everything. The list is just endless. You would be so unhappy in Canada. Better stay in Basingstoke where everything is as you like it !!

I H.A.T.E baked beans, yuck!

When I visted I didn't think the food was that bad, I guess living here is very different. And trust me, this town is full of chav's. I will be glad to see the back of it!
