Re: Winnipeg

Re: Canadian Thanksgiving

I thought it was simply a day to mark the official end of summer/the beginning of winter and give enough time to get up north to shut down the cottage for the season?

Re: Shipping Leeds to Niagara

Is there a reason you want to move to NoTL? It is a very touristy town. Unless you are talking about somewhere more rural away from the town itself?
