Okay, so don't get all offensive if you're a Canadian, because I really love you guys. BUT, isn't it about time to pack up and head out of Florida by now? I mean it was really nice to see you all again this winter, but I think your house misses you. Don't you have to get back in time to get those tulips going in the front yard or something?

I had two Canadian's spend a pile of money in my store yesterday... Granted, it's not everyday but it sure is welcome, eh?

you ask this question while at the same time certain factions are BEGGING to let a canadian company come to the US and build a big pipeline across the entire country. You think there are a lot of canadiens here now, just wait! We'll have canadian workers buildling a canadian pipeline to transport canadian oil sands across our land so a canadian company can sell it for profit to countries outside of North America.

Kinda makes you wonder why actual canadiens voted to prevent the same pipeline from being built on a shorter, cheaper run west across Canada to the Pacific coast....

Still, some of you guys could use a few lessons on what an accelerator is. :)

Would be very easy to spell out what will be acceptable practices for hiring pipeline construction employees well before the contracts are ever signed.....

I guess they will leave about the same time the folks from Ohio will.
I think the entire SE should start spraying for the Ohio people infestation. If it works for mesquitos....

My parents (not Canadians) are there and can say for sure they are DEFINITELY not spending money! :grin:

In fact, last I heard they're coming home with over $2k in gifts cards from the casinos :roll

No not "change" it is oil in the form of nasty tar sands that is responsible for this remarkable turnaround. I know some pretty good IT guys and there buddies from Ottawa and BC that are out of work and looking.

In fact here in Detroit there are many and I mean many Windsor plates on I94/I75/I696/I275 at 6 in the morning weekdays and they ain't here shopping at that time.

Most of them if not all of them are gone from my area. Once the spring breakers move into Destin the blue heads fly north.
