I honestly don't know how you guys put up with that. Would drive me nuts. Every time I'm in Ontario I have to go searching for a government sanctioned "Beer Store" and when I finally find it the prices are mental.

Ontario gave me a new appreciation for the American way of being able to be buy cheap booze at many convenient locations lol

To be fair, if we had to deal with the "stuff" you guys do in the states, Im sure we'd need cheaper and more readily accessable booze.

Ontario does allow grocery stores to sell alcohol and will soon have legalized weed so It'll be a different state of things.

Entirely coincidentally, I've been thinking of moving back home to Ontario, haha.

At least out here in Washington State, we've beaten you to it. Weed is legal in BC I think?

In Seattle maybe.  I suggest you start watching the national news.

Nowhere in Canada is weed legal...yet.

"Superior" is putting it lightly lol. 

Do malls still close at like 5 pm on the weekends in Canada? Or did they realize people can't be deprived of fun.

Of course! Yup just got home on the dog sled and currently skinning my seal in the igloo!

Also I'd be careful comparing anything education related :lol:

I don't watch the fake news

The entirety of Vancouver reeks like weed, so I just figured. 

BC Bud! ohh I can smell it from here... either that or downtown eastside. 

Weed might not be legal but it's openly consumed and sold. I remember one place in Vancouver that was literally across the street from a Police precinct. Right upstairs from the Amsterdam cafe.

They actually closed them down, but I think t had to do more with the Robert Pickton case.

Weed is supposed to be legal across Canada in 2018. Of course the ontario government is going to make sure the black market thrives still by only letting government run stores sell it.

I love Vancouver. Super nice place. I think the UN just ranked Vancouver #1 most 'livable' (whatever that means) city in the World (Seattle #2)

God bless Le Weed Minister. They said he couldn't do it, but that wasn't Trudeau.

What about it? The United States has the best university systems in the world aside from Oxford and Cambridge in the UK.  

Best scientific research aside from China which picked it up in the earlier part of this decade. Partly because there's no regulations there and you can eat a dog if you wanted to. 

Highest number of patents, GDE in research and development, highest weighted and fractional article count in scientific journals. 

So much so that my university graduating class consisted of about with about 40 Canadians, half of whom ended up staying here because of the job opportunities.

I guess that's all great as long as you're a well-off privileged white male. I was more referring to the national average.

That's pretty inaccurate. Lets shift back to hockey though before we get in trouble
