Re: Perhaps someone could tell me nicely what they like/dislike about Canada?

Another world. Last night we went trail riding in the country, it's pretty much like that out there, around Orangeville. I don't mind Toronto proper, gangs, drugs, drunks, dog shit and all, but my...

Re: Perhaps someone could tell me nicely what they like/dislike about Canada?

I, for myself, tend to beat around the bush, I have trouble expressing myself clearly and usually understate my position. Nonetheless, in a bid to be less mealy mouthed I'm going to come write out...

Re: Perhaps someone could tell me nicely what they like/dislike about Canada?

Re: Perhaps someone could tell me nicely what they like/dislike about Canada?

Re: Perhaps someone could tell me nicely what they like/dislike about Canada?
