Come on Canada: check in

Similar to the thread about States in the US (http://forum.dvdtalk.com/other-talk/...r-checkin.html), let's see if all provinces and territories of Canada can be 'claimed'. Just post where you live (province or territory, not city) and you "own" it!

Once a province or a territory has been claimed, that's it. No more takers.

So, I'll be the first to post here:
Alberta

Edit: it appears that we have several people from Alberta already, so I am going to start keeping track of the nr of people from the various places (in brackets behind the province/territory name). But, the rule stays: first come, first serve.

And here's the list with the takers:
Alberta (4x) - lolarennt
British Columbia- cardiac161
Manitoba
New Brunswick -ElementZ
Newfoundland and Labrador
Northwest Territories
Nova Scotia - Blotto
Nunavut
Ontario (5x) - Fanboy
Prince Edward Island - yojimbo44
Quebec (2x) - eXcentris
Saskatchewan
Yukon

Territories? Provinces? I've always just referred to it as "America's Attic".

That's because we are warm and moist and where the fun happens.*

*and because it smells bad down here.

Oregon is pretty much BC - just with no sales tax.

I've heard of at least 5. I hadn't heard that all five of them were in Canada though.

Alberta, AGAIN. I tried to check-in at the American version but they disqualified me for some reason.
