I read somewhere that Canada has the highest per capita basis for coffee shops per person than any other country in the world.

Tim Hortons on every corner, literally. That's Canada for you! I don't really like Tim Hortons coffee, though. I prefer Country Style, if I drink it at all.

Let's not forget the gay marriages and the almost legalized marijuana.
People know about this stuff, but i've been reading maclean's and in fact I sent the journalist an email letting him know he was wrong...
The journalist claimed that many americans don't like us now because of the gay/pot thing. But the fact of the matter is, he needs to read more papers over here, and talk to people. Because the people i've talked to, don't really give a #.
They are more concerned with the war and the run for the white house. That journalist embellished i'd say just a little too much. But Maclean's is a biast magazine and I wouldn't expect much from them anyway.

The provincial gov. didn't give up control of it's resouces, it was taken from us by Mulrony 20 years ago. He signed NAFTA,which was great for Ontario, he allowed foriegn fisheries to farm our waters in treaties, basicly, he sold us away for the rest of the country. Am I bitter, yes. I want to live in my province, not 1200 miles(1900kms) away. I could do it, but it would mean that I would be working at Tim Hortons and let my family live on welfare in another house. That's not happening.

I wouldn't doubt it, IMMORTAL!
The school I go to has 5 Tim Hortons alone, and probably a dozen other coffee shops. It's crazy.

A few things I forgot to mention:
-I'm not from Quebec, I'm an Acadian from New Brunswick. We are distinc from Quebecers and I hate it when people generalize us as being the same. There are cases where some Quebecers hate us and we hate them back.
-I dont like the governement in Quebec, they scare the hell outa me and I probaby would'nt like to live there because of them.
-I dont hate people that speak english or people from the west, only racist people who hate the french and the east as a whole. To the rest of you peace!
It's just that when I see someone from the west making us look like a bunch of idiots I dont take it. I'm a freakin' human being just like you, not a stereotype or a statistic and I demand to be treated with decency and respect and in return I will give respect.
Those that hate us blindly can come sit on my middle finger and swivel. Those who respect us on the other hand are fine by me.
My anger here is only aimed at a narrow minded minority, to the rest of you have a nice day and enjoy a Tim Horton's coffee, if so many people line up for it, its because its good.
Peace ya'all (well almost all of you), .:Ranger007:. oxxx[=======>
