    Just wondering if I'm one of the only few here on MacRumours.

    I'm curious about other Canadian mac geeks like me. Sorry for sounding like a jerk, but please only Canadians respond. :)

    Hehe I'd say I was Canadian. I have both citizenships but I live in Philly now. Oh and I'd like to add, Macs are so expensive over there and their tax hurts in a way. ;)

    Doh! Had I known it was a tradition, I would've waited until my 1337th post! :p

    I am from Vancouver also, but have lived in Canada all my life.

    I'm so glad the Canadian dollar is really strong. How's Philly treating you?

    Hey! luv ya bunches! xoxo is my line!

    I've visited Niagara Falls in 1992. Beautiful, er... water... Ate at a local German restaurant. So romantic with the sound of the falls in the background!
    I raise you 2 xo's. luv ya bunches! xoxoxo

    Canadian, in spirit?! I love you already! Yes, Canadians are known for their hospitality, friendliness and boring politicians.

    Congratulations! Just watch out for BC drivers. They're crazy!

    :)

    I'm Canadian, born and raised. I study in Australia though. Got my undergrad degree at McMaster/"Mac". Don't worry, Australia isn't as great as Canada is. ;)

    I live in New Brunswick, not Canada. Proud to be a Maritimer until the day I die, or die protecting the land I love.
    Canada is a nice place to visit, but I don't know how anyone stands to live anywhere but the Maritimes or Newfoundland, I mean don't you people ever miss the ocean, or fish, or low crime rates, or low cost of living, or friendly people, or clean air, or fog, or rich history, or fun accents, or great music, or kitchen parties?

    This thread makes me homesick.
    I'm a Canadian, from Winnipeg, but I'm currently living in Southern Arizona. Once my business takes off and I can work from anywhere, I'll probably move back up North. I'd love to join Kwajo.com in the Maritimes, which I agree is a great place to live, but all my family has moved out west to Calgary and Vancouver so that's probably where I'll go too.
    The US is a great country but Canada will always be my home.

    We got west, we got east, and we got ex-pats... how about something from the middle?

    Born and raised in Ottawa, currently attending university in Montreal. Love both cities - for different reasons - and I never want to live anywhere but Canada (but I'd happily live anywhere *in* Canada).

    Cheers!

    I think he's from Regina or Winnipeg or something, which we're rather embarrassed about. :eek:

    Oh, did I mention that I'm from Toronto?

    Please don't hiss at me. :eek:

    His profile says he lives in a city that "rhymes with fun". There's nothing pleasurable about anginas. :eek:
