Am I Canadian yet?
I’m going to be headed back to T.O. from the great city that is Ottawa, and I was wondering if anyone would want to meet up on August 28th, 29th, or 30th. I was thinking of a dinner thing at Duff’s Wings on Bayview (1604 Bayview Avenue). Let me know if anyone is interested so we can work out a time (maybe around seven…
So celebrate by watching the maiden flight of the Avro Arrow.
2008 Saab 9-3 Turbo X Sportcombi. 71,000 kilometres, $16,995 CAD. I want this so bad, but there’s no way in hell I’d be able to get it before it sells. Oh well, that’s life.
20,000 litres of the finest liquid has been stolen, worth about $150k CAD. The company is offering a $10k CAD reward for any tip that helps nab the thieves. While nowhere near as impressive as the $18 million worth of maple syrup stolen a few years ago, it’s still impressive.
So, there’s this 1990 Toyota Supra with only 92 kilometres on it. Which is neat. But they’re also asking for $69,998 CAD. Nice price or crack pipe? Although I think we all know what the answer is.
Did I miss anything exciting? Also, have to say, Winnipeg and the southeast area by Lake Winnipeg are actually pretty swell. Have some car photos from my journey (yes, my girlfriend humoured me enough to let me pull over a few times).
Off to the lovely Winnipeg area and I’ll have limited internet access. Hold my calls, keep me updated if shit hits the fan, for the love of the gods keep SaveTheIntegras out of the basement.
Want to buy an electric car? Don’t want to buy American, Japanese, Korean, Australian, or European? Then do I have the car for you! A 2007 Dynasty IT, Canadian made and found here at home!
So, I went for a bike ride with my buddy, and we went a ways west along the Ottawa River. When we decided to turn back, we stopped, glanced down the river, and noticed there weren’t any bridges for a while. I decided to take a look at what bridges cross the Ottawa River in the Ottawa area. Guess how far the next…
I’m looking at different places for work around the province, and I was wondering what people’s general opinions of their towns or areas are (aside from Toronto, since I’ve lived there and I don’t want to go back). So, if anyone could chime in, that’d be greatly appreciated. And I mean literally anywhere. Hell, even…
149 years ago, the provinces of Upper Canada (Ontario), Lower Canada (Quebec), New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia came together to form the basis of this great nation. Throughout the years, we’ve grown and expanded, made an international reputation for ourselves, and I think have done a pretty excellent job in the world.…
1989 Toyota Celica GT Convertible. Manual transmission. 130,000 kilometres. Guess how much they’re asking? Go ahead, guess, I’ll wait.
Walmart stores in Canada will stop accepting Visa credit cards due to an inability for the two megacorporations to find a
price that satisfactorily screws the customer
fair transaction fee for customers purchasing their goods with Visa cards. The rollout starts July 18th in the economic powerhouse city of Thunder Bay,…
Here we’ve got a 2001 Audi RS4 Avant. 58,600 kilometres on the clock, and apparently it’s the only one that’s been imported to Canada. It’s already seen a price drop of $5,600 CAD, but at $52,900 CAD, is it too much money for exclusivity?
But what about whole SEGMENTS? Enter the non-hybrid compact MPV.
Morgans are cool. Shame the 3-Wheeler isn’t for sale in Canada.
How’s everyone spending it? And by “everyone”, I mean other Canadian Oppos. Right now, I’m hanging out and blasting Pink Floyd, and I’ll probably go out and do some photography later. Long weekends are great (so long as you don’t drive up the 400 from Toronto and get stuck in the Holland Marsh).
Got a tour of the Canadian Forces College not too far from where I live. It’s an absolutely beautiful campus, lots of space, very nice classrooms and conference rooms, and their mess hall is in a super old building (the old residence of John Armour, a local farmer who the area Armour Heights was named after). So yeah,…
