I think most of your readers would also include North Wapiti Siberians in there discription of what makes Canada the best place to live and play.

I agree you forgot to list NorthWapiti kennel as one of the wonderful things about Canada.

I have never been to Canada, but was inches from the Canadian border. Why did I not go? Because I did not have a passport - and had we gone to Canada, there would be no guarantees I would be allowed to come back to the U.S. I did have my MO Drivers License, My Social Security Card and a Certified Copy of My Birth Certificate. Apparently that did not matter. So, some day I want to go to Canada - legally that is!
From what I did see of Canada - it looked just spectacular! Happy Canada Day Karen and everyone else who are Canadians here!
