    The only place I see this being possible is in Quebec (where I live unfortunately). I don't care what people say...for now...Quebec is still in Canada and they are Canadians whether they like it or not.

    My friends used to work at the airport and some losers would argue their citizenship and actually write "Quebecois" on the form and then wondered why they wouldn't get on the plane without the correction.

    Ahhhhh... I'll have to remember the quotes next time, AJ.

    For the rest of the above inquisitors, my comment was a reference to a post I made in a different thread where a fellow poster (who has canadian in her name, no less) got snitty with me for labeling her a Canadian when she was truly just an American living in Canada. Semantics.

    I'm sure the quotes will help next time I make that gaffe. AJ, you're a gem!

    I am from Canada to, near London Ontario. Lived in a small town most of my life but did live in Sudbury for a year.

    Another Canadian here. Born and bred Albertan. Lived in England for 9 months, but otherwise always in Alberta. Currently living just south of Calgary although planning on moving in to the city ASAP (and getting the heck out of my parents' house).

    I have vague fond memories of a show I watched as a California kid called The Littlest Hobo where the hero was a dog "travelling around from town to town, sometimes I think I'll settle down....".

    Are we talking about the same show???
