    Are we going to name each person who is sick or has died from this?

    I was thinking it would be pretty hilarious to run a poll on this after seeing how this was worded.

    Been to and skied out of both. And dang, it does not suck.



    Can’t speak to the politics of different Canadian provinces but...the folks in the Banff area were some of the nicest I’ve met in my life. Quebec, less so. However, my trip to Quebec City, MSA, and Le Massif last year was amazing. We felt more welcome there than a previous trip to Montreal and Tremblant but, this is subjective stuff.

    I used to live in WA state and my visits to Canada have been largely positive experiences. I actually moved from WA to NH by driving across Canada, which to this day I think was a stroke of genius. There’s a funny story in an Ontario bar that I’ll post here sometime.

    Cool. I have family opposite the sound from Seattle, so I know that area a little bit. Also made a mini jaunt though Toronto on my way to move from Boston to St. Paul a while back and loved it.

    The Québécois and French tend to really like me because I can speak French. I understand that's rare, and even my wife doesn't feel the warmth when we visit francophone areas. The number one thing I've heard from the Québécois is how nice it is that a New Englander like me cares to learn French more than my fellow millennials living on the island of Montreal.

    You may find this funny amidst all the political craziness these days, but I'd actually love to spend a year in Montreal/Quebec if I could ever swing it.

    That does sound like a great idea. Only negative in my book is radar detectors are illegal in Canada. That and Canuck highways often leave something to be desired in terms of maintenance versus American highways. But for those who've done the cross USA trip several times I think it'd be great.

    Not crazy at all. I took a few years of French when I lived in n.VT & visited Montreal regularly, to the point that I know the city very well. I tried to "spend a year" there by applying to a school for my MBA, knowing it would be brutally difficult as Canadian schools accept very few Americans, and alas, I did not get in.

    Don’t forget the price of gasoline in Canada. That’s a turnoff.

    With the current exchange rate the difference is not that large anymore.
