@David:  The main problem is there are no real difference between any 2 on the ballot -- just a choice of who you want to steal/squander your/our money.

Politions are money grubbers who cannot keep their nose out of our business or their hands out of our pockets.

I have been to Toronto twice and enjoyed it. Also Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec, Victoria, and Vancouver.

If you are into scenery, might I suggest the Canadian Rockies and the Badlands (can be done in one trip). Also out east in Nova Scotia and the Gaspe Peninsula. I believe Newfoundland is well worth a visit (haven't made it there yet).

@antedeluvian I have also been to Toronto a couple of times and liked it.  But Canadians (or at least Torontians) obviously pay as little attention to the idiots they elect as Aussies do.  They say you get the politicians you deserve....and if you don't look closely at the guys first you are stuck with them.....

I'm not sure, though, we want to be connected to Toronto at this time

There is much more to Canada than just Toronto.

But admit it, you are loving the entertainment!

"socialized medicine in Canada means there is no financial implication to me"

Maybe Canada can annex those of us just to the south of you. Smileys

I'm not sure, though, we want to be connected to Toronto at this time.

My family doctor retired about 18 months ago. He referred me to a much younger doctor at another practice who left town less than year later. I was then transferred to another doctor in the practice who also left for another postion, though still local. So now I'm on my third doctor in that practice, but have yet to meet him.

I did have physicals with the first two doctors before they left.

Well, what can I say...I agree that we need to take time to visit as many medical professionals as possible.

@Sheetal.Pandey: Medical checkup once in a year is nice to do.

I agree -- I do that also -- life is very short so it's best to do all one can do to make the most out of what little time we've got :-)
