When it came time for me to think about where my life was going, my parents let me know a couple things:
- they made enough money that the Canadian government wouldn't let them off the hook for helping to pay for my education, so student loans were reduced.
- they weren't going to/weren't able to help me with paying for my education anyway.
Consequently I never went to college or university. I've managed all right without any training or degrees, though not as well as I likely would have. I suspect I will never have time/opportunity/money to fix this.

On my sister's behalf: What is the best chance for my husband (and therefore me) to immigrate to B.C.? He is 53 (not good according to the Canadian point system), and has a great offer of work from a friend in Victoria who is a designer/builder of homes. My husband would be hired as a foreman, as he's a highly skilled and experienced carpenter, and is capable of managing and training crews. His formal education doesn't go beyond high school, his English language skills are good (but not his French), he has no criminal record, and he's in very good health. [more inside]

Canadian travel in February filter: We'll be doing some college tours of Canadian colleges, including McGill and University of Toronto. To see these places AND impress upon my daughter the reality of what COLD weather feels like (we live in California), I'm thinking of taking her up to Montreal and Toronto between Feb 17 - 21. Cheap flights are available to Burlington (close to Montreal) and Buffalo (close to Toronto).
Is it possible to drive from Montreal to Toronto in February? Or is it so snowy and blizzardy that this is ridiculous, and we should take the train or fly? Airfares seem high, but maybe I'm just not looking at the right flights. Any suggestions as to how to cram visits into those places during mid-Feb?

LongShotFilter: About 10 years ago I remember seeing a great billboard up on the side of the east-bound Trans-Canada highway somewhere between Falcon Lake, MB and Kenora, Ont.
The words on the sign were simple: Take a break. See the lake. Go shopping.
Does anybody have a picture of this billboard by any ridiculous chance? I believe it was a local billboard promoting the Kenoa and Lake of the Woods area in general, I don't believe it had specific ties to any particular place of business.
This phrase has been a running joke among friends since the first time we saw it, but in the recent times I have gone back to Kenora, it was nowhere to be seen.
Bonus points for the same verbage from a sign somewhere else.
