    Mark from Langley, British Colimbia!! been welding for around 4 years and participated in the 06 and 07 skills canada regionals competions for welding which were held at Kwantlen College. Think i came last in 06' (due to failed uphand attempt) and 7th or 8 out of 12 or so in 07'. They were both great experiences, hopefully i'll make it to provincials this year

                  here is some canadian humor ..............

                  Canadian Tourism Humour
                  The most unusual questions tourists have asked at information bureaus across the country.
                  **From Tourism Toronto, a toll free info and reservations line
                  Why do French Canadians have a different accent from other Canadians?
                  How do I apply for the Canadian Express Card?
                  What's this Boxing Day in Toronto, do you box on that day?
                  I heard about that new law and I'd like to find out... uh, my girlfriend would like to know the best places to go topless in Toronto.
                  Caller: How far is Boston from Toronto?
                  Counselor: About 900 kilometers, or 565 miles.
                  Caller: So if I drive using miles, it won't take me as long to get there? Is that what you're saying?
                  Can I take the subway to Vancouver?
                  Good afternoon, I'm entertaining some executives, and would like to know where they can ride llamas.
                  What information do you have on Italy?
                  **From Check-ln Nova Scotia, the province's toll-free information and reservations number
                  Do you have automatic bank machines up there?
                  Are you connected to Greenland?
                  Can you tell me about the ferry from Halifax to Europe?
                  Does Nova Scotia have a dress code?
                  ** From Alberta's Banff/Lake Louise tourist bureau
                  "That's such a lovely flag," said a tourist admiring the Canadian flag. 'Does it come in many colors?"
                  Visitor: How far is it to Lake Louise?
                  Staff member: 40 miles
                  Visitor: How long is the trail?
                  Staff member: Five kilometers.
                  Visitor: What's that in English?
                  At which elevation do the elk change to moose?
                  Can you book us baseball tickets at the SkyDome tonight? We're driving to Toronto this afternoon.
                  ** From the information kiosk at Niagara Falls, Ontario
                  Is the water coming over the falls real?
                  What time do you turn on the rainbow?
                  Are the CN Tower and SkyDome within walking distance?
                  From a tourist who was admiring the falls at night, when they're lit up with various colored lights: What kind of dye do they put in the water to make it change color like that?
                  How can I parachute over the falls?
                  I have to be at this address in Vancouver for dinner at 5 o'clock this evening. How much time should I allow myself to drive there?
                  Why do you Canadians have fireworks tonight? The 4th of July is still a few days away.
                  Which way do we walk to get to Montreal? We'd like to go there for lunch.

                  A Canadian Journal
                  Date: Sun, 3 Nov
                  Ah,yes... O Canada, Our home and native land!
                  Dear Diary
                  Aug. 12 - Moved to our new home in Canada. I am so excited. It's so beautiful here. The mountains are so majestic. Can hardly wait to see them with snow covering them.
                  Oct. 14 - Canada -- it is the most beautiful place on earth. The leaves have turned all colors and shades of red and orange. Went for a ride through the beautiful countryside and saw some deer. They are so graceful. Certainly they are the most wonderful animals on earth. This must be paradise. I love it here!
                  Nov. 11 - Remembrance Day. Deer season starts soon. I can't imagine anyone wanting to kill such a gorgeous creature. Hope it snows soon. I love it here!
                  Dec. 2 - It snowed last night. Woke up to find everything blanketed with white. It looks like a postcard. We went outside and cleaned the snow off the steps and shoveled the driveway. We had a snowball fight (I won). When the snow plough came by we had to shovel the driveway again. What a beautiful place. I love Canada!
                  Dec. 12 - More snow last night. The snow plough did his trick again to the driveway. I love it here.
                  Dec. 19 - More snow last night. Couldn't get out of the driveway to get to work. It's beautiful here but I'm exhausted from shoveling. F#cking snow plough.
                  Dec. 22 - More of that white **** fell last night. I've got blisters on my hands and a sore back from shoveling. I think the snow plough hides around the corner until I'm done shoveling the driveway. *******.
                  Dec. 25 - Merry F#cking Christmas! More frigging snow. If I ever get my hands on the sonova***** who drives the snow plough, I swear I'll kill the *******. Don't know why they don't use more salt on the roads to melt the f#cking ice.
                  Dec. 27 - More white **** last night. Been inside for three days now except for shoveling out the driveway after that snow plough goes through every time. Can't go anywhere, the car's stuck in a mountain of white crap and it is so frigging cold. The weatherman says to expect another 10 inches of the crap again tonight. Do you know how many shovels full of snow 10 inches is?
                  Dec. 28 - That f#cking weatherman was wrong. We got 34 inches of the crap this time. At this rate it won't melt before summer. The snow plough got stuck up in the road and that ******* came to my door and asked to borrow my shovel. After I told him that I had already
                  broken six shovels shoveling out all the crap he had pushed into my driveway, I **** near broke my last one over his f#cking head.
                  Jan. 4 - Finally got out of the house today. Went to the store to get food and on my way back a ****ed deer ran in front of the car. Did about $3,000 damage to the car. Those beasts should be killed. The *******s are everywhere. Wish the hunters had
                  exterminated them all last November.
                  May 3 - Took the car to the garage in town. Would you believe the thing is rusted out from all that salt they put all over the roads.
                  May 10 - Moved to Florida. I can't imagine why anyone in their right mind would ever want to live in such a God forsaken place as Canada!

                  These are actual questions asked by tourists at Banff National Park!

                  On nature...
                  How do the elk know they're supposed to cross at the "Elk Crossing" signs?
                  At what elevation does an elk become a moose?
                  Tourist: "How do you pronounce 'Elk' ?"
                  Park Information Staff: " 'Elk' "
                  Tourist: "Oh"
                  Are the bears with collars tame?
                  Is there anywhere I can see the bears pose?
                  Is it okay to keep an open bag of bacon on the picnic table, or should store it in my tent?
                  Where can I find Alpine Flamingos?
                  I saw an animal on the way to Banff today - could you tell me what it was?
                  Are there any birds in Canada?

                  On geography...
                  Did I miss the turnoff for Canada? (while standing in the middle of Banff Park!!)
                  Where does Alberta end and Canada begin?
                  Do you have a map of the State of Jasper?
                  Is this the part of Canada that speaks French, or is that Saskatchewan?
                  If I go to B.C., do I have to go through Ontario?
                  Which is the way to the Columbia Rice fields?
                  How far is Banff from Canada?
                  What's the best way to see Canada in a day?

                  On tourist facilities...
                  Do they search you at the B.C. border?
                  When we enter B.C. do we have to convert our money to British pounds?
                  Where can I buy a raccoon hat? ALL Canadians own one don't they?
                  Are there phones in Banff?
                  So it's eight kilometres away... is that in miles?
                  We're on the decibel system in America you know.
                  Where can I get my husband really, REALLY, lost??
                  Is that 2 kilometres by foot or by car?
                  Don't you Canadians know anything?

                    A: A-fri-ca is the big triangle shaped continent south of Europe. Ca-na-da is that big country to your North . . . oh forget it. Sure, the hippo racing is every Tuesday night in Calgary. Come naked.
