    Sounds like avocado toast has finally made its way to our friends to the north.

    Let's not go around threatening folks here, ok?

    (avocado? Why not just airlift Spackle instead.)

    Real bacon or Canadian bacon? In the US, we just call the Canadian kind “ham.”

    We call you all Yankees, so I guess it averages out.

    Hmm. The Yankees are the most successful team in baseball. Canadian bacon is still just ham. It's good ham, but its still just ham.

    For us, 6% inflation on what we spend yearly now 'is' about 400.00 more each year. So is it 400.00 more on top of inflation?

    I'll take that over the US system where you pay for coverage that mostly gets denied...

    I guess if those are the only choices, I probably would too.

    My "US system" works great. We never have to wait for treatment and our coverage gets accepted (sometimes after a little back and forth) every time. Sorry to hear about yours.

    When you look around, our food is way too cheap. Somebody is underpaid for their labor.

    My Canadian friend (from Manitoba) asks that we not use the term "chocolate moose" around him as he finds it confusing.

    As long as he's not thinking "chocolate mouse"...
