Hello! Erock, I've bumped into you on the Election thread and the current Politics thread but have never actually said hi, so an extra one to you, I guess.
As for placement, Nova Scotia, which all my friends from Ontario have also started calling "the land of the strange way of saying car". Which is also my note on accents - the pronunciation of that particular word changes as you move west, though the people I live with from Ontario (from around Toronto and Kingston areas) and BC (Vancouver) don't appear to notice that.
Also, Joe, have you seen a certain Molson Canadian commercial?

But soft! What light through yonder window breaks?
It is the East, and Juliet is the sun! Put out please.
Born in Calgary, moved to the US at age 3, still a Canadian at heart.
I am getting sick and tired of telling people I know that Canadian bacon and ham are two very different things. For one, Canadian bacon is back bacon, and two, it is probably one of the most disgusting things I have ever tasted. No offense to others who like it, though.
I'll stand and fight until the day they put me in the ground.
We used to have milkbags available everywhere when I was a kid, but fewer people buy it like that now. There's a pitcher you can buy that looks like this;◊ that's how we stand them up in the fridge. You shimmy the bag into that thing, cut open a spout with kitchen scissors, and pour at will.
My Canadian family used to have bags of milk. I remember that being my favorite thing about visiting, even though I hate milk. I have family in Oshawa, Toronto and Missisauga, btw. My mom lived on Jane and Finch in Toronto for a while.
