Re: What do you dislike about living in Ontario?

Re: What do you dislike about living in Ontario?

From your time in Ontario?

The early snowfalls are not so bad. Shovels are so well designed here that pushing often is enough.

Re: What do you dislike about living in Ontario?

But that's 'country' though. It looks it anyway.

It's just that I look at Kingston (I think) through Toronto and onto London (I think) and even around the corner of the lake to Hamilton and I see...

In my case it would also be kept in the...

Re: What do you dislike about living in Ontario?

Re: What do you dislike about living in Ontario?

Every winter the newspaper here has some sort of feature/advice on it.

I'm careful. Sometimes I just look at what's there and say sod that!
