I think Saskatchewan has a ski hill though! But don't quote me on it. And don't be surprised if it's just a bunny hill. :P
...is there anywhere without wheat that you can stand? XD

    Ahh, centennial coins... I'm a coin collector (which kind of contradicts the fact that I'm bad with hstory lol, but whatever) and have the whole set of them. If you want to see for yourself:



    All are pretty common and very affordable on eBay or at coin collecting stores. :P

      I've.. never seen any of those coins. They're pretty neat =D

      Never seen even the bird penny one either... or maybe I don't pay remotely enough attention to them. Whenever I see pennies, I just look for the first opportunity to get rid of them ><;; Can't wait for the day that penny is out of circulation!

          Prettiest landscape? I would say British Colombia. My friend's place looks exactly like the landscape in Skyrim. Woods and mountains everywhere where she lives :)

          Really different form the urban tone of Montreal >.>

          I also feel pretty lonely, being the only one here from the province of Quebec haha

          I've only seen Ontario ('cause I live here) and Quebec (couple of trips), so I'm not really in a position to judge. Between the too, I've done more naturey things in Ontario so I'll vote my home turf

          In my imagination, I would go with somewhere in the maritimes though

          Might be a bit biased since I live here, but I'd have to say that British Columbia has some of the nicest landscapes in Canada. All from about an hour's drive from my house you can visit beaches, mountains, rivers/lakes, forests, farmland, etc. My second choice would probably have to be Newfoundland. Even though I've never been, any pictures that I've seen others take there always make it look so nice, and it's one of those places I'd like to visit if I ever got the chance.

            I'm in the same boat. I've never been anywhere else outside Ontario, really. But I'm going to have to say BC on this one, because I've heard great things from many of my close friends who've visted.

              And like a week or so later due to university, finally back to post a bit here and there!

              Am I the strange west coast person who has hardly been around Ontario? I think that I stopped by there for at most a week... I haven't been to Ontario for like the first 10 years that I've been in Canada, and only went there recently haha.

                I have a bunch of those pennies and one of the 5 cent coin.
                I have this one coin from Alberta, I think it is.. from 1870.. with a Buffalo on one side and a prairie flower on the other. Dunno if it's worth anything though!

                And.. have an old 5 dollar bill that has french all over it and.. er.. hard to describe actually.


                And the old $2 I have :33

                My dad has a whole set of those Centennial coins put away somewhere, he got them as a gift for being born in the same year. I've also got a few $1 and $2 bills that are stashed away, with one of them being at least 50 or 60 years old.

                I've lived in Canada my entire life and have never been East of Alberta, so it isn't all that strange.

                  I think that it took me quite awhile to even properly visit Vancouver even though I live in Alberta, and Alberta is relatively close to Vancouver too XD; You'll think that most Canadians will visit the 2 larger cities of the country hm?

                    The farthest I've been away from Toronto in Canada is Timmins, which still isn't very far.
                    I think I used to have some special bills maybe, but when I moved to the states I might have left them somewhere. Idk. :/

                          I have an old family friend of my grandfather who lives in Timmins whose family is still really close to my mom. Unfortunately I've never visited .o. How did you find it?

                          Coldest it's gotten here so far is -11 with wind chill, I think. It's 3 degrees now. Not too big a deal. I'm getting a bit sick of it because it's so rainy here. I'd much prefer snow instead of rain at this point. :(

                          It always surprises me how few Canadians actually visit Canadian destinations. :( Even those who travel a lot will go all over the world and never visit the province next door. I get that Canada's huge and you can't get to as many places in one trip as other destinations but Canada's awesome. The only places I haven't been are the territories and the only province I didn't enjoy at all was Manitoba. :P

                          Here it's 1 degres celsius, so it's not that bad. But we're also planning on having 6 centimeters of snow for tonight.

                            Well admittedly there's not a lot of "reason" to visit some of the provinces in Canada... like, unless you have family members there, why would you visit Sasketchewan? @[email protected]; even in Edmonton here, if say a friend from afar visits me, I'll be quite hard pressed to think of some fun places to take them to.

                            I really want to go out west and out east and I hope to some day. Let's go on a Canada tour! :P

                            But, when it comes to family travel for us... eh... Dad travels throughout Canada a lot. He's been to all the provinces many times over. He's somewhere just about every week. I think going elsewhere is more desirable to him as a vacation because otherwise it might feel more like work? Or something?
