Re: Canadians' Sense of Humour?

Re: Canadians' Sense of Humour?

There's a joke there somewhere about Brits and pigeons. Too bad I'm not funny enough to make one up. ;)

Re: Where's better Calgary or Edmonton

I'm not a Brit but as an outsider that's lived in Edmonton for nearly 21 yrs, I'll chime in. I moved to Edmonton from Nova Scotia in 1988 and found it to be quite different than Halifax, and it took...

Re: Winter tires or All season for Calgary???

Re: Winter tires or All season for Calgary???

True no matter what season....which says more about how we train drivers in this country than which tires they choose to put on their cars and trucks.

You're probably right to some extent. There...

Re: Winter tires or All season for Calgary???

It's possible. But that may be true whether they've got winters on or not. I've made a few winter trips between Edmonton and Calgary in horrible conditions and the only vehicles in the ditches were...

Re: Winter tires or All season for Calgary???

In Edmonton there isn't nearly as much snowover the course of the winter as there are in other parts of the country, and I believe Calgary to be about the same, perhaps even better because of the...

Re: Winter tires or All season for Calgary???

Not that it hasn't already been said, but I'll add my voice to one side of the debate...proper, winter-rated tires are worth the investment. There's a remarkable difference to all seasons,...

Re: daytime running lights

If the first character of the VIN is a 'W', then yes it was. I'm not sure which models were built where, but my 01 GTi was built in Germany while most ordinary Golfs sold here at that time were...

Where was the vehicle originally manufactured? From what I've read on Transport Canada's pages at:http://www.tc.gc.ca/roadsafety/safevehicles/importation/other-than/index.htm, vehicles manufactured...

Re: Do you need a degree to survive in Nova Scotia!

No. All you need there to make ends meet is a Bobcat and a flatbed trailer....and possibly the ability to steer around porcupines, if you're so inclined.

Re: Do you need a degree to survive in Nova Scotia!

No, certainly didn't leave for that reason. I usually get back to visit every 2 years or so just to recharge those Maritime batteries.

I studied engineer in school and specialized in the field of...

Re: Do you need a degree to survive in Nova Scotia!

In my case it wasn't a pay issue. It was simply that there weren't any jobs in my chosen profession.

Re: Do you need a degree to survive in Nova Scotia!

Yes....as Simon says, it's mostly because of job prospects. Most people who leave always have in their minds that they'll make their way back sometime. In my case I thought I would only be away for...

Re: What food would you miss from Canada?

I've lived here my whole life and it took me 42 years to work up enough courage to try it.

I'm a convert now though. When the cheese curds start to melt over those hot chips....mmmm :D
