I use NordVPN and I recommend it. Got a 3 year subscription when it was on sale a few months back. Multiple servers around the world to choose from and simple to use.

Re: Canadian cities where minorities are the majority

There's no clear cut answer. It will always be a multi-sided Rubik's Cube of diversity vs integration vs tribalism vs assimilation. You go for one side and the other sides get knocked out of...

Re: This is America

It's a start - having a creative interpretation of the gun and police state dystopia that abounds south of the border. But it's kind of preaching to the converted - the type of folks who will watch...

Just wondering because it seems to be a labour of love just to get a decent streaming connection to Skype / WhatsApp video messaging / other that doesn't pixelate/drop halfway. I have to prep my...

Re: "White British"

I ain't white but I won't hold it against the cultural norms of a time period, as to what were the normally accepted terms at the time. I still remember at school being asked to fill out forms asking...

Re: Technology, society and the human race

I've always considered the 'Great Filter' theory to be a plausible one and explains the lack of alien civilizations, many of which I believe are now dead.

There will always be barriers to the...

Re: Lamb - best price ever

Fresh lamb is pretty hard to find in Ontario, so this is a good find.

Re: The Whisky Thread

Re: Zimbabwe

Structurally nothing changes. It still remains an authoritarian state, with one dictator about to be replaced by another, who will continue protect the entrenched interests of Zanu-PF.

Re: When did your relationship with UK friends and family start to fade

When I moved to Canada, I made a conscious decision to focus on Toronto, rather than Vancouver, as it would probably make it easier for me/guests to come and go from Heathrow (cost, travel time,...

Re: Scotiabank newcomer account, a grim tale


True that. Scotia are the worst of a very bad bunch. The bank tellers in the GTA are generally an incompetent lot and assume everyone is a naive immigrant.

Re: Pay check to pay check living, about half of Canadians do.

The concept of average and stats like this can be misleading. I'd be interested in a demographic breakdown of those living on the edge - rural vs urban, Ontario versus rest, and last but not least,...
