I dislike ice tea.


probably 0 degrees :lol:



In what month(s) is it around the freezing point - 0 degrees? You once said that in the summer it is +50 degrees and in the winter minus 40 or was it +40 and -50?

I must say that you are lucky to be born in Canada with the enormous differences in temperature over a year knowing that you're interested in the weather forecasts.


The Canadian weather might be worth a study.


I do genuinely believe that you will make a GREAT meteorologist with your mathematical skills and good brains.


But personally I couldn't live in a country with so cold winters and so hot summers.

Did anyone here go to the Coldplay show at Toronto's Rogers Centre in the summer of last year?


For the concert, was Rogers Centre in its baseball configuration or its football configuration?


I know it's a stupid question, but I was just curious.:embarrassed:


When I saw U2 at Rogers Centre last year, the stadium was oddly its baseball configuration.:inquisitive:

Mounties and maple syrup (and an excellent healthcare system): Why Canada is the preferred destination for British expats

It is the land of maple syrup, the Mounties and... British expats

Those emigrating from the UK have rated Canada as the best country to live in, it has been revealed.

The country was seen as having the best quality of life, is peaceful and has a sound banking system, according to a survey.

1. Canada

2. New Zealand

3. Australia

4. France

5. South Africa

6. Portugal

7. Spain

8. U.S.

9. United Arab Emirates

10. Singapore

11. Hong Kong

12. China



Expats also gave high marks to Canada's natural beauty, its healthcare system and its education standards.

There are currently more than 600,000 British expats living in the country.


New Zealand was second, followed by Australia, France and South Africa.

Of the 1,430 UK expats surveyed by NatWest International Personal Banking, more than half earned between £50,000 and £100,000 a year.

The biggest earners were in Hong Kong where almost half - 47 per cent - of UK expats had annual salaries of more than £100,000.

In contrast, only 5 per cent of those who have moved to Portugal earned in excess of £100,000.

Natwest PIB head Dave Isley said: 'Canada's excellent working conditions, financial security and peaceful reputation have pushed it into this year's pole position.

'It seems the pull of the beautiful Rockies, the Mounties and the marvellous taste of maple syrup is a real sticking point for British expats.'
