Things that you like or dislike here in Canada

Speaking of condo, when I was still in college, I remember one time I was giving a ride to a classmate back to her home, I asked where she lived and she replied "I live in a condom." I tried so hard just to keep a straight face without cracking out loud and calmly replied "I guess it must be a pretty good size condom, isn't it? "

One thing I really dislike is we are "visual minority" here, many trouble come to you so easily. Many of those " ??" people always try to take advantage from you, it make you so tired to defend yourself. One simple example, is they might charge you a little more for just a pack of cigarrete.

Did you teach them about Canada's freedom, human rights, democracy, equality and other b.s.?

Did you tell them it was wrong to discriminate you?

Ok, no problem.

But there are some differences between Toronto and Vancouver, or even Calgary, Edmonton, Montreal, Halifax, St. John's in Newfoundland.  So people might confuse "Canada" with what's happening in your own province.

For example, Alberta doesn't have PST, so it will never have HST.

"2. Close to USA" We now need a passport in order to go to the States. I miss the pre-911 yrs. that all we need is to show them our driver's license at the point of entry into the U.S.

Alberta has oil, they can afford to have less tax.

Newfoundland also has oil and natural gas, but it has HST.

In terms of volumn, Newfoundland can't compare to Alberta.

It is nothing about those, just that they feel that you don't know many things, as simple as the price of a pack of cigarette. You need to be alert always.
