Re: Come on Canada: check in

I represent Québec, but I'd rather have P.E.I. Better seafood. Deal?

Aahhh. I have to be strict here. It is not where you were born, but where you live. I wholeheartedly agree regarding the seafood in PEI, but rules are rules. I didn't make those up.
Oh wait...

(I did give you a vote for Quebec though. Rien ne vas plus).

That deserves elaboration and qualification, but I want to keep everything peaceful here.

My guess is the poster feels heavily taxed.

I thought Nunavut was still part of the NWT.

Also, Alberta's the best province because we only have 5% sales tax and our Health Care CEO got fired for eating a cookie.

Re: Come on Canada: check in

Has Canada added a few provinces in recent years (15) or is my memory just that bad?

It was part of the Northwest Territories up until 1999.

You probably can, it's the territories that are the tricky ones.

Nunavut

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Nunavut /ˈnuːnəvʊt/ (from Inuktitut: ᓄᓇᕗᑦ [ˈnunavut]) is the largest and newest federal territory of Canada; it was separated officially from the Northwest Territories on April 1, 1999, via the Nunavut Act[5] and the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement Act,[6] though the actual boundaries had been established in 1993. The creation of Nunavut – meaning "our land" in Inuktitut – resulted in the first major change to Canada's map since the incorporation of the new province of Newfoundland in 1949.

Nunavut comprises a major portion of Northern Canada, and most of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, making it the fifth-largest country subdivision in the world. The capital Iqaluit (formerly "Frobisher Bay") on Baffin Island, in the east, was chosen by the 1995 capital plebiscite. Other major communities include the regional centres of Rankin Inlet and Cambridge Bay. Nunavut also includes Ellesmere Island to the north, as well as the eastern and southern portions of Victoria Island in the west and Akimiski Island in James Bay to the far south.

Nunavut is both the least populous and the largest in geography of the provinces and territories of Canada. It has an estimated population of over 33,000,[7] mostly Inuit, spread over an area the size of Western Europe. Nunavut is also home to the northernmost permanently inhabited place in the world, Alert.[8]

Prince Edward Island here - in addition to seafood, we've also had canned pop for almost two years now and will soon experience year round Sunday shopping - we are really looking forward to the 21st century.

Re: Come on Canada: check in

We got 6 out of 13 claimed. We're about halfway. Congrats to the new owners! For sure we should be able to get someone from each province, no?

Question for the owners: what are you planning to do with your province/territory?

For me in Alberta: get some more taxes from the oil industry (they do have it quite nice here) and I will single-handedly fix the health industry problems (wait times). Not sure how yet, but I'll let you know once I do.

Remove that ridiculous law that prevents more than one stripper from appearing on stage at the same time.

I know nateman is in Winterpeg, Manitoba. But he hasn't claimed it yet.

As a citizen under LolaRennt, I plan to protest every one of your actions, starting with the oil industry taxes. I will constantly harass you and your people and slowly break you down until you go crazy and approve Shazam's stripper thing.

Cheers!
