I just wanted to post this little chuckle that is in the news...

Canadian-born Robert Moisescu, sentenced to seven years in prison for robbing a Plattsburgh, N.Y., bank, told the judge in a letter that his time should be reduced to four years because his loot was worth only 62 percent in Canadian dollars (May). [Mainichi Daily News, 7-5-02] [News Dispatch(Michigan City), 3-27-02] [Edmonton Journal-AP, 5-10-02] :).

hehe :D

even with the bad exchange rate, over 90% of all Canadians live within 40 miles of the US border! I suspect a lot of it just has to do with climate though :)

That's because 90% of canada is tundra j/k :)

it IS getting sort of far north there... and unlike alaska, there isn't a nice ocean to keep it a little warm...
