So, I was thinking, since there are so many Americans on here (this site is probably run by Americans), who on here is Canadian or lives in Canada 😀 Anyone celebrating Canada Day here?June 13, 2013 1:47 am at 1:47 am #963565k9horaMember
hello from Toronto, the largest frum Jewish community in north America without tons of chutzpa. try it you’ll like it. we have more daf yomi shiurim per capita than any city in the world outside of Eretz Yisroel.June 13, 2013 1:51 am at 1:51 am #963566
I’m a proud Canadian and most definitely celebrating Canada day!!!! Except i wish the fireworks were better here:( J’aime le Canada!!!!!!!!!!!June 13, 2013 1:51 am at 1:51 am #963567yichusdikParticipant
You know it is a few weeks until Canada Day (July 1). I think Toi is also Canadian – originally, and there’s someone from Winnipeg who used to post often. But Canada is indeed a pretty good place to live. A government that is a better Friend to Israel and the Jewish people than any other in the world; a robust economy that weathered the recession pretty well; good Jewish infrastructure; freedom; and a beautiful, vast landscape.June 13, 2013 2:19 am at 2:19 am #963568
k9hora: ugh i hate TorontoJune 13, 2013 2:27 am at 2:27 am #963569

younglday: Toronto’s not that bad- they have Canada’s wonderland and niagra fallsJune 13, 2013 2:41 am at 2:41 am #963571
alwaysmile: Toronto does no have Niagara Falls. It’s a two hour drive from TorontoJune 13, 2013 2:43 am at 2:43 am #963572

The taxes in Canada are an absolute killer. Plus, I can make my own poutine at home, and there is fine quality kosher Maple Syrup available from Vermont and other places.
Montreal bagels are misshapen (I’ll take a hot Kossar’s bialy any day of the week).June 13, 2013 3:04 am at 3:04 am #963576

While income and sales taxes are higher in Canada and the US, property taxes tend to be much lower, especially compared to the suburbs of New York City. And the government pays most of the cost of your health insurance, which is a huge savings.
Also, some provinces make a very large contribution to the cost of Jewish day school education. (I know that Quebec and British Columbia do and that Ontario does not.)June 13, 2013 5:22 am at 5:22 am #963581
Canada is not the US. They don’t have our way of government, nor our ideas about G-d and liberty. America is exceptional and is the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave. Not Canada.
America has been at the forefront of helping oppressed peoples around the world attain human rights and freedom from oppression. Not the Canadians. When we were fighting to stop the spread of communist tyranny in Southeast Asia, the Canadians welcomed draft dodgers with open arms, r”l. Another emasculated, European-type regime.June 13, 2013 6:31 am at 6:31 am #963582netazarParticipant
No. Israel is the best country in the world.June 13, 2013 10:47 am at 10:47 am #963584Geordie613Participant
Hpw many daf yomi shiurim are there in Toronto, and how many people?June 13, 2013 1:11 pm at 1:11 pm #963585haifagirlParticipant
No. Israel is the best country in the world.
Thank you. I was wondering if anybody else would say that.
Hashem gave us Eretz Yisroel. Obviously He thinks Eretz Yisroel is the best country, or He would have given us Canada.
So, can’t_stop_laughing, why do you disagree with Hashem?June 13, 2013 2:22 pm at 2:22 pm #963586tzaddiqMember
great thread, eh?
i live happily and proudly in montreal, but my heart is in E”Y, where i lived the first year of my marriage.
rebdoniel- not for nothing montreal-style bagels are famous and emulated in dozens of other cities.
taxes are a killer, health care is free, blah blah blah , like every other city, there are pros and cons. business is very tough here and most are having a very hard time, but we’re surviving. the weather is not as cold as it used to be, with a lot less snow, and we enjoy hot summers too. canada’s main business center undoubtedly is in toronto. all in all i dont know if its the best country but it definitely is way up there with the top 5.June 13, 2013 2:59 pm at 2:59 pm #963587

Lived in both Montreal and Toronto. Relocated 3.5 years ago back to US. now living in Monsey.
Everything in life comes with a price-free Canadian medical care but long wait times to see a doctor or get treatments.
Very high taxes and a lot of invisible anti-Semitism(especially in Quebec). There are streets in Toronto where all you see are burka clad women. When I went to get my citizenship there was one woman covered from head to toe( don’t know how they knew who she was !)
We are happy in Monsey-its clean has all Jewish conveniences and you can reach Brooklyn, Lakewood and Baltimore without driving for 10 hours!
But truth be told I would rather have Stephen Harper as my president than you-know-who!June 13, 2013 4:54 pm at 4:54 pm #963591R.T.Participant
Yes, we have enjoyed having the Right Honorable Stephen Harper as our Prime Minister.June 13, 2013 5:09 pm at 5:09 pm #963592CanadiyidMember

My cousin just married a Canadian guy (from Montreal). My younger cousins thought that the fact that he can speak French was so cool, and they kept asking him how to say stuff in French. Then my mom, who understands French, was passing by as he was doing it and realized that he was making up jibberish (like, “how are you doing” turned into “my horse is purple.”
We’ve never trusted him when he was speaking French again.June 13, 2013 8:20 pm at 8:20 pm #963597🐵 ⌨ GamanitParticipant
While I don’t speak French, I think I know enough words that I’d know he was lying if he took things that far…June 13, 2013 8:27 pm at 8:27 pm #963598

Canada is a rather inept country.
Canadians are also a gullible people
But Canada is indeed a pretty good place to live. A government that is a better Friend to Israel and the Jewish people than any other in the world;
This gov`t has been better(excepting Mulroony) than the past half century,and they talk so flattering;but read their platform,and see them in practice.
Every country has myths about their past,
s past as its`inhabitants are taught, is one big whole myth
