    Toronto: Love it or hate it?

    I was referring to a poster who wrote that Toronto makes him feel like he's "not a Canadian". Don't put words in my mouth

    Toronto: Love it or hate it?

    I don't work for Toronto Tourism, recceguy. My "opening post" was inquiring as to what people thought of the city, nothing more.

    Toronto: Love it or hate it?

    I never said Toronto is Canada...

    Toronto: Love it or hate it?

    What is Canada, exactly? I'm curious as everyone has their own definition of what is and isn't. My impression about people like you is that Canada is small town living where everyone looks like you. Toronto is what people think Canada is all about; multiculturalism, freedom to be etc. If you...

    Toronto: Love it or hate it?

    Yeah it looks bad so let me clarify: What I meant to type was living in Ontario I've been to cities and provinces close to me like Ottawa, Montreal etc. If I am accepted, pass all my courses and (hopefully) end up in Edmonton with (hopefully) The PPCLI it'll allow me to explore other provinces...

    Toronto: Love it or hate it?

    I have been thinking about that. I know whatever happens I'll do it anyway but I would like to actually live somewhere that's not Toronto, preferably Alberta, so as to experience life on the West Coast. At the moment I can't imagine wanting to live anywhere other than Toronto which is a problem...

    Start of the Cold War: The Marshall Plan or Soviets' exploding first atomic bomb

    Was NATO capable of winning a military victory over the Warsaw Pact? I look at The Korean War and Vietnam as major military victories for the Communists while Cuba as a political one. When looking at proxy wars where the US and the USSR supported opposing sides like Iran-Iraq War even then a...

    Toronto: Love it or hate it?

    I couldn't agree with you more. Toronto is funny in that way because a lot of people are surprised with how friendly and helpful people are. Some would say its because many of the people here weren't actually born in the city but I like to think we're no different than any other big city...

    "Tour of Duty" (1987-1990)

    At that time it was, to me, the best theme song ever. I had no idea at the time who The Rolling Stones were. I still remember the ending of each episode where you'd see the guys walking off in the sunset in formation... brings back great memories and look very much to experiencing it again

    "Tour of Duty" (1987-1990)

    Was that the case with Canada's airing on History Channel? I remember the theme song "Paint It Black" being used in all episodes along with some other tunes from that era with which the show took place.

    "Tour of Duty" (1987-1990)

    Fair enough I should have specified what I meant. I always loved the end theme for the show. It's been about 12 or 13 years since I've heard it but I still remember it. And that show was my first introduction to The Rolling Stones as the song "Paint It Black" was used as the opening theme

    Stephen Harper pledges expansion of military reserves

    Assuming this does happen will this mean the creation of new regiments or expanding existing ones?

    Anyone else a fan of "24"?

    I just started rewatching the series and was a big fan of it till season 8. I guess with the re-watch I may change my mind but still, given how many seasons this show has run I'm still surprised its as good as it is. "Live Another Day", the shortened series on Fox that just aired, was really...

    "Tour of Duty" (1987-1990)

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0092468/ Anyone remember or know of this show? I used to watch the re-runs as a kid when History Channel aired it back in the early 2000's. I still remember how much I loved it and am in the process of buying it on DVD. If you like Vietnam era media this is a must...
