Hey, I was born in Wingham Ontario myself! All my relatives live in & around Kitchener & Waterloo. I'm American now though - took that Naturalization test. I gotta get back up there soon and visit some family. My husband's never been to Canada.

We have two official languages in Canada, French and English. The highest population of French speaking Canadians are in Quebec. So, in almost every province we have both languages on all of our signs. However, something that I find ironic is that in Quebec, it is illegal to have English on signs so they have French only. LMAO!!!!

I speak very little French. However, my kids are in a French Emersion school program. They both speak French all day long and have done so since grade 1. They take an English class a few times a week. Since we have two official languages, I thought that my kids might have more opportunities for jobs etc. if they are proficient in both languages. I imagine that the same would be true in the USA for English/Spanish speaking individuals.

Cheers.

how cold are we talking about? im used to single to sub zero single digit temps in the winter time in wv.
lots of people come to Winnipeg for the American spring break cause the age to drink in Manitoba is 18, as for how cold it gets, it can get cold, really cold. Im not sure what it is in Fahrenheit but it gets to about -30 -40 sometimes colder in Manitoba, and thats the average temp in February

Don't forget...

Bilingual (english/french) packaging.

laugh...sorry for the example, it was the only good one I could find.


From what I remember, one side of a product would be english - while the other side would be french. Is it still that way? (it's been a good 15-20 years since I've been up there)

Funny, but in the States....a lot of stuff is Spanish/English.

That's why they're in small quart bags.

They drink a lot of milk up there - they believe in strong bones & teeth.
