Re: Little Mosque on the Prarie.

It wasn't bad. The jokes were a bit predictable, but it was better than I was expecting for a CBC effort at sitcoms. I'll watch another episode or two to see how it turns out. I'm hoping they...

Re: Canadian House in high winds

Hah, no, I wasn't aiming that at you! It was more my observations over the past couple months since winter weather arrived.

Re: Summer Recce to NS & Toronto Advice Needed

The South Shore is probably the most recommended area of NS to visit, and if you are heading to Shelburne to will have that covered. I am estimating Shelburne would be a 3 hour drive from Halifax,...

Re: Canadian House in high winds

My 2-storey apartment building survived winds between 160 and 180 km/hour during Halifax's Hurricane Juan just fine. The building shook but stayed completely intact and, more importantly, so did the...

Re: Passport question.

Is there a lot of extra hassle involved if you let the UK passport lapse and then have to get it again from scratch? Or is the same amount of paperwork involved in both processes, as I believe is...

Re: missing our family in UK (and Europe)

I would hazard a guess that part of your problem is your location. I was born and raised in NS and love the place, but it does certainly have the faults you describe. Rural NS in particular can...

Re: Health Insurance in Alberta

Also, I don't believe health insurance is paid via company payroll. My understanding is that you personally are sent a quarterly bill from the Alberta dept of Health, and it is up to you to pay it...

Re: Typically British things? Ideas?

Not sure where you are in Ontario, but I would suggest Pimm's as a typically British drink not many Canadians will have tried. We found it in several LCBOs around Toronto, though it was more...

Re: Typically British things? Ideas?

Shortbread, pickled beets and porridge oats are no problem, you will be able to find them in any grocery store. Oatcakes tend to turn up more with real home-baked goods so you may have to visit some...

Re: Christmas plans?

Thanks for the best wishes. I am hoping it stays put until at least after Christmas, and preferably the New Year!

Have a great Christmas season all.

Re: Christmas plans?

Waiting to go into labour. I never want to be pregnant over Christmas again - much too tiring.

Re: Marzipan

You can also try the Gingerbread Haus bakery at Queen and Fenwick. If I remember they make little shapes and figures out of marzipan during holiday seasons.

Re: Wildlife in Alberta

There are a number of arctic hares hopping around Edmonton, though you have to look harder for them now as their fur has turned white (it is grey-brown in the summer). Apart from that I haven't seen...

Re: BBC article on UK immigration

Quebec pays people to have babies (or used to, not sure if the policy is still in effect) - the amount received goes up with each child, so you might get $500 for the first one but a couple thousand...

I'm not really clear whether you are already in a relationship with a Canadian and contemplating a move here, or whether you are hoping to find a willing Canadian to sponsor you. If it's the former,...

Re: Would this happen in the UK?

This is too funny - HB has found a place that sells suet and now he wants to cook with it over Christmas. I think I will have to insist on a risk assessment!

Re: Yee haa and Canada eh! and all that jazz

Welcome Ki, glad things are going smoothly! Just keep telling yourselves "it's a dry cold" - supposedly this makes a difference!

I am amazed at the lack of snow removal here in Edmonton - in both...

Re: Canadian Passports

Actually I believe all Western countries, or at least the English-speaking ones, have passports that last for 10 years. Canada is the only one where you have to go through this rigamarole every 5...

Re: Any real Canadians like Corner Gas?

I like Corner Gas. I can't say I make a point of watching it every week, but if I see it's on I'll watch it. It's a drier sense of humour - and no laugh track, which is a nice change!
