greetings to the hosts and all members,

am new to this group. In short, because it´s Canada. Would be too long to tell. Without wanting to sound  flowery, I´ve loved this country since my childhood, probably I didn´t even know yet, then, where exactly Canada was...I´ve been a couple of times to BC...Vanada is love and peace...Friendly folks out there...Well, with all due respect, and everybody´s got their experience , but there can´t be a place, more friendly ( the natural way ) and more helpful  than " out there " . All folks sociable, always ready for a natter, on the street, in a bar, in the park...

I came across you a while ago, browsing here and there. Love to exchange minds on whatever comes to mind. Love music.

Hope, I´ll post soem time . Bye now, thanks.

Thank you, Che August 26, 2006 5:29 PM

for the invitation a veeerrrrryyy long time ago.  I've just cleaned out my messages (I'm a bad girl and hardly ever respond to or delete my messages) and found this invitation to the group.

Hello Everyone.

I'm Sheena...I am not Canadian, but I know two (maybe more) here who are lovely people.  Che, and Christian.

Should I leave? 

I know very little about Canada, but wish you all well, and hope the fishermen leave the seals alone dammit.

Be well,

Hi Everyone August 16, 2006 11:22 PM

I'm here on Vancouver Island, BC.  One of the most beautiful places in Canada.  Right now the weather is perfect, temps around 25 degrees celius, starry nights, perfect for watching the meteor showers, and tons of stuff happening this weekend on the island.  The big VIEX Midisland Fair in Nanaimo, Sandcastles and fireworks in Parksville, Car Shows in Cowichan...boy I'll be busy.  Nice to see some friends here.  I'm off to read all the threads.

Let's impeach the president for lying

And leading our country into war

Abusing all the power that we gave him

And shipping all our money out the door

He's the man who hired all the criminals

The White House shadows who hide behind closed doors

And bend the facts to fit with their new stories

Of why we have to send our men to war

Let's impeach the president for spying

On citizens inside their own homes

Breaking every law in the country

By tapping our computers and telephones

What if Al Qaeda blew up the levees

Would New Orleans have been safer that way

Sheltered by our government's protection

Or was someone just not home that day?

Let's impeach the president

For hijacking our religion and using it to get elected

Dividing our country into colors

And still leaving black people neglected

Thank god he's racking down on steroids

Since he sold his old baseball team

There's lot of people looking at big trouble

But of course the president is clean

Thank God

Hey! All the best stuff's . . .can_ani_icon.gif !!!

Hi everyone

I come from Australia, which is the 51st state of the US of A. {Our dear leader John Howard is 'close buddies' with Bush}

Canada has always held a fascination for me: spectacular landscapes, multi-cultural cities...and the accent is cute!

Hope to visit some day.

anonymous Greetings, All! July 17, 2006 9:09 AM

New here I'm living in southwestern Ontario and I have been 'back' in Canada (after years abroad) for almost seven yeaars.
Love the maple leaf on this groups's homepage btw. I thought 'Oh, a still growing Canada.' Then I thought, 'An environmentally aware Canada'. Then I read that it was simply anit-flags (not anti-Canadian flag, I do understand, but anti the concept of flag idolatry. I hope I've judged that one right cuz I don't want to get slapped!). Anyway, it's great.
Hope to meet you all later.

In the Yukon, we get -45 degrees celcius below. (sorry, I have no clue as what that is in farenheights.) in the summer, we get the midnight sun, which means that it doesn't get "dark" at night. (well not on june 21st and days surrounding it anyway.)

The summer season is very short up here. But I love winter's calm and silence... (this silence involves wolves howling and wind blowing.)

In the summer, if one is in the shade, it is not too hot...

In that case you might like the coast here. Hardly ever warmer than 75 or 80 and cooler than 30 to 35. Hotter in the interior duringthe summer, with temps around 90 and cooler in the winter with temps around 0 to 10.  [ send green star]

You forgot about Alaska. Actually it is very hot and humid in central Canada, similar the north eastern USA. On the Island there is very little if any snow other than in the mountains. BC is similar to Oregon. Hot plateau in the central part with lots of fruit grwoing and desert areas. Great wine country. On the coast similar to the oregon coast. Cascades similar to coast mountains here. Go see my posts with pictures of palms in BC.

Yes. There are lots of palms on the west coast. They are planting more and more. They need little water, so do well in boulevards. They are a hardy group which can stand freezing as long as it warms up most days. They are on the Island too, even on the west coast in Tofino and Ucluelet. Snow is rare there. Just as rare as 30C degree days.  [ send green star]

I would love to move to Bolivia. I think Argentina would be an interesting country.If you are from Oregon, you would find little change moving to British Columbia. Portland is a city I find has a "canadian" feel to it. 6 month visitors visa will get you into the country for a longer period. That can be renewed several time. If you have a job, or enough money to start a business, you might be able to get in under NAFTA regulations. Our firm has a subsidiary in Oregon so any of our employees could move to the states under NAFTA regs. Same goes the other way. If you are studying at University, apply to one in Canada and get a student visa and stay a few decades. Many do. Especially during active war times. Several in my graduating class were from the States and are not returning anytime soon.

I found exercising clears my mind of exterior bullshit and began exploring the ancient art of transcendentalism and seeking only self satisfaction while shielding out all evil, including politics, some time ago. Sometimes I burst out and go crazy though...but only a mildly, like in chatrooms and hanging on threads....nothing....too..strange. ha  [ send green star]

In Quebec French is spoken outside Montreal and Montreal is really the only bilingual city in the whole country.

The rest of Canada speaks almost solely English, although they want to think they are officially bilingual.

I don't know if Canada is the best choice.  It is a great country and it is rich.  It is less of a ghetto than the US and there isn't that schism between rich and poor that exists in almost every country in the world.

The reason I would tell you to wait before you made your decision is because Steve and George are meeting too often and making too many conservative deals.

But all in all, Canada is a great country.  But taking a look at the new socialist revolution in South America always gives me hope.

I am not Canadian, nor have I ever visited the country, as close to it as I may be. 

However, I know that Che has a good reason for inviting me to this group.  So, I will try to be active as possible, at least on issues that I know a little bit about. (Or pretend to anyway.)

Hello Canada July 09, 2006 12:02 AM

Thanx, Che, for the invitation..I am honored.. I've never had the pleasure of visiting your country, but I have two lovely friends in Nova Scotia who give me glimpses and I am somewhat familiar with your judicial system.

I'm an old geezer, pretty much of an iconoclast and an unapologetic
believer in a higher power. However, my ecumenical right brain usually keeps me out of trouble when it comes to religious proselytizing or debating. Morals and values, however, are open to debate...along with politics, ideologies, psychology, personalities, gossip...whateva. When I'm
not here, I love my "job" taking care of other old folks, animals, my grandson  and promoting their rights via education and legislation.

Watch it guys, Che can precipitate right brain hyperthought!

The ones that have a fur coat.

Never been to canada...don't believe in borders. This, to me, does not signify freedom in any way. I am extremely claustorphobic...I have been handcuffed and worked myself out of them and begged the p.o not to put them back on. This was after they shoved me to the ground so hard that I was not able to walk on my ankle for a month. 

I do not like organized religions in any way, shape, or  form. They make me VERY uncomfortable. I believe that we all have minds that we take for granted.  It is easier to have someone to tell us what and how to think rather than think for ourselves.  I am willing to take the hard road and think for myself.
