Australia's had its share of floods recently as well. And I thought it was just one big solid piece of rock, but there have been a few earthqukes here too.

@R0ckstar... good point. Plus Canadians are delightful, friendly people. And I think some tech hubs in the country (Vancouver in particular) aren't getting the credit they deserve.

To me, it's not surprising or particularly alarming that the electronics industry is going with business as usual in the wake of the floods. The companies have well trained employees there (who buy the way are happy to have the work). Most of the facilities are intact, and much of the equipment. You can't hide completely from natural disasters (even in Canada). Best you can do is fortify your facilities to hopefully better withstand the next one.

I think you have the right idea with Canada. Setting up shop just off the Hudson bay gives you access to the northwest passage, and with the global warming and all, it's also destined to be a tropical paradise as well. Eh?
