Ontarions need geography lesson!

life is all about perspective. I currently live in Edmonton, and it's considered 'northern alberta', despite being central. When I lived up in High Level I found it highly aggrevating that Edmonton was referred to as 'northern', given that it was a 10+ hour drive south.

I have a friend who calls whenever there's a Leafs game on TV here he can't get on satellite on the Mackenzie Highway - if he's not at home "down south" in Grande Prairie

My question would be; why? Not why would you drive through the states, but why would you be going to the maritimes, unless just to visit.

If all you're doing is trying to make time that would be the best route, but, yes it is boring, except in winter.

Yeah, I made a comment about my brother who lives back east in Ontario, but I was in Sydney NS, I was looked at as if I had six heads, (sorry, that's a newfie expression). How ya's all gettin' on? It works better if you can do the accent. (It's hard to discern a Caper from a Newfie accent).
