Only in Canada…

  • You can’t get your mail for three days because the mailbox outside is frozen. Too bad, your first paycheck was in the mail…
  • You see people queuing outside in the snow at 7:00 am for a cup of Tim Hortons coffee
  • You’re 50 cts. short for buying a Coke because you thought taxes were included
  • You see people wearing shorts and tee-shirt when it’s “only” 5C.
  • You have to plug your car overnight to make sure it starts in the morning
  • You can treat yourself with the leftover dough of a doughnut (yep, it’s called Timbits and people actually like them)
  • You’re considered as “fluent in French” if you can read most road signs and food products’ boxes
  • There are kids playing hockey depicted on your banknote

Eh, this is Canada !

    La vie est comme un tricot que nous tricotons une maille à la fois. Une maille est un jour. Une maille est une année. Je vous souhaite plein de mailles à l’endroit et de reprendre les mailles à l’envers avec bonheur.
    The life is as a knitting which we knit a mesh at the same time. A mesh is one day. A mesh is one year. I wish you full with meshs at the place and to take again the meshs with back with happiness.
