    Default Food, Drink, Fun, and Those Pesky Canadians

    Hey, they put a picture of the queen on one side of the coin and a beaver on the other. What's that all about?

    Unbelievable.

    (Though I got a giggle out of it, admittedly. Just for having the sheer cojones to try that)

    Hmmm, giving out a ticket for 29 mph speed to a tourist? Canadians certainly know how to do business. Are they in big debt like Greece now?

    My past experience is that unless something serious police here in US usually gives tourist a warning rather than ticket. Even in local areas, I noticed that police in richer cities tend to give warning rather than ticket, while poor cities give out tickets no matter what to accumulate as much money as possible.

    With worsen economy, maybe AAA or some organization should start building database of cities making easy profit from tourists.

    It would help if tourists actually paid attention to local laws.

    I know, I know - it's a radical suggestion. I'll probably get slammed. Shame on us for expecting them to do that!

    And you're not likely to speed again in Canada, are you now?

    Hmm...radical suggestion...actually make people take responsibilty for their actions instead of letting them think they're above the law.

    Canada's been metric for what... more than thirty years? With big signs up at the borders reminding people that "KMH" does not mean "MPH"? You go onto a Canadian expressway and think, "Wow - I get to drive 120 MPH, woohoo!"? Seriously?

    Slammed? Just slammed? How can you even suggest such a thing -- that tourists should pay attention to local laws -- it's un-American AND un-Canadian!

    Wow! You two! You know VERY WELL that there is a law AGAINST taking "responsibilty for [your] actions"! Talk to ANY teenager -- they can tell you....
