Oh man reading this thread makes me want to move back out west. 20year HVAC Tech.... Ottawa housing i think maybe more expensive then AB... 350k for a 4 bedroom would be a nice change.
"It takes a special level of incompetance to make a schedule this terrible. America is possibly the greatest country in the world overall for tracks. To make a bad schedule in America takes effort. A special kind of effort. A kind of effort that only IndyCar could come up with."
I guy I work with said his friend quit her day job to be a Bartender in I believe Stanley ND last year...and pulled in 140K just working nights. He also said with overtime the truck drivers are making that as well.

[QUOTE=sightlines;2936570]you don't need a passport to cross the Canadian border by land, just by air.[/you need at least a modified drivers license .If you live in border states you can can get a modified drivers license which are a lot cheaper than pass ports. Unless you want a passport.

Nobody can carry here except cops, Brinks drivers and far northern trappers who would be in danger without a sidearm due to animals. Without registering them here, a US citizen can bring up to three non-restricted (longer than 16" barrel or 26" overall length guns, unlimited capacity rim fire, five shell centrefire or shotgun) for purposes of hunting with the filing of one form at the border.
The 2010 homicide rate in Alberta was 2.07 per 100,000. That compares to 7 in Missouri, 5.6 in Michigan, 4.9 in Texas and 4.3 in Alaska.
But I think our "Beat the crap out of stupid people" rate might be higher than most U.S. cities.
Faster than a bullet from a gun
He is faster than everyone
Quicker than the blinking of an eye
Like a flash you could miss him going by
No one knows quite how he does it but it's true they say
He's the master of going faster. -George Harrison
I make myself laugh all the time.
