I like to think that it's more exciting than Saskatchewan :P But yeah, it's flat here.

I've been to 5/10 provinces...Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec. None of the Territories, but I would love to one day. :)

Manitoba is flat...I went by Winnipeg once, and you could practically see the whole city, it was so flat. I've been to B.C, Alberta, Saskachewan, Manitoba, and Ontario.

I was just thinking about asking people where they have been in Canada! I have been to:*takes a deep breath*BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, PEI, Newfoundland, and NWT. So all 10 provinces and 1 territory. I love it out east, PEI especially. I have been there three times, and it was so amazing! I miss living so close to the ocean.

You lucky ducks. I went to Salt Spring Island, which is a Gulf Island, in BC, and I live in Alberta, and I went to Saskatchewan a looooong time ago for my great-grandma's 90th birthday. I was probably six at that point.

You should try visiting BC, when I went there I felt suffocated half the time by all the mountains and Alberta isn't even that flat! I felt like I could breath so much better once we got back. Weird, I know.

Heehee, I love the diversity we have in Canada. I do love the mountains, but whenever I go to BC, I miss the big sky the prairies have, and the late sunsets :D

I hope you don't mind a non-Canadian dropping by for a brief visit...
I have a question.. which I should actually ask the Americans I guess... owh well. Can you tell the difference between Americans and Canadians i.e. on behaviour or the way the speak, like pronouncing?
Whenever I happen to call Canadians American, they tend to correct me by stressing each syllable:
No, I am Can-A-di-an!! :angel:

I'm not nearly observant enough to notice a difference. Americans and Canadians sound the same to me. Except of couse the Americans with Southern or New York accents...

No, I think the behaviour is very similar, Canada being so close in location and culture to the US. Besides the fact that Canada's bilingual in parts.

Yeah I'd think accents and dialects would probably vary more than behavior... You must have tons of different dialects in Canada...

Dialects of what? We speak English and French mainly, and though the French does differ from what's spoken in France, those are basically the only two languages. I live in an area heavily populated with immigrants from the Middle East, so they speak their language sometimes, but I think that's pretty unique to my city.
