On average, people are around 5'8" here in British Columbia. It's so different where you live.

reikiaddict I find your views on the differences quite.., false. There is no accent difference in general. Most of us speak with the same accent as most of America. There are a few exceptions, for example: Newfoundland, most of the southern states, (Some places in) Nova Scotia, and Quebec. These don't speak for the entire country as a whole. Also, better universities is quite a general topic. Some universities are better then others in some aspects, but over all, you can't lump all of them together, and say ours are better. America has it's share of good universities as well. Also, the homosexuals aren't as big a problem as you play them up to be. Although they may hit on you in public, this is a small group of them. Many of the homosexuals are nice, constructive people. If you have nothing better to do than rip on them online, then you seriously need to get a hobby. Also, "Quebecers" isn't even a label, it's something you made up on the spot, and they don't throw really wild stag parties, a few might, but that's the same in all provinces.
Good day to you.

P.S. I'm looking forward to your reply, if you choose to have an intelligent debate, although it should be taken to PMs, lest we seem off-topic.

lol everyone calls em Quebecers duhh....and that's why everyone hates Montreal....its full of homos....people only go there for stag parties...I bet you haven't been in one or know someone who went there....and since I was not born here I can absolutely distinguish the accents...watch some Russel Peters for goodness sakes. And FYI this is common public knowledge. I am not ripping it off from somewhere...gosh read my profile...it says there TORONTO! Ryerson beat MIT and Princeton in the picosatellite competition last year. U of T is the best Med school in North America...i dun care if u disagree but they themselves claim that...they got published in some magazine i think and the best business university is in here as well...found in the magazine report. Ah, YOU should get a hobby and dun b a fag. Thank you.

Reikiaddict You seem to have misunderstood me on some fronts. Let me try to clear a few things up. On the subject of the universities, I didn't say another country had all the better universities. What I meant was, all places have universities that have some departments they're better at, and some they're worse at. Such as your U of T being the best Med school. As for the "Quebecers" statement; They may be called that in your city, but not all across Canada, sure, there are some that are insensitive, but there are a lot who wouldn't use that term. Calling me a fag was unnecessary. I didn't say you were ripping it off of somewhere, I said "ripping on them" being a term that means making fun of/grumbling about. Also, that "watch some Russel Peters" was rather funny. The media can't be trusted, things are blown out of porportion for the sake of ratings.

Have a good night now.

^Lol I know, for the most part, these stuff is actually everywhere. I know people from almost every province except way up north and this is also what they say. Even those Quebecers also say that. Haha I'm not really making fun of them, scrutiny rather. Those people are just irrational. They want a new country yet they want to keep the Canadian Dollar as their monetary unit and as a plus they want "Canada" to pay all their debts...which we all know that they have the largest debt of all provinces??? And about Russel Peters, that guy is a really nice person. And he never ever did that just to rip people off their money. It's funny cuz its true XD. Anyways, disregard my last note about you bein a fag.

That's true about Quebec, although, they're pretty close to tied with my province to the extent of their debts. We could've had our debts pretty much payed, but then America came up with the soft wood lumber tax. That was a pretty hard blow to British Columbia's economy. Also, I don't watch much T.V. anymore because it's full of so much propoganda and such. So, I wouldn't know much about the Russel Peters person. Sorry if I offended you or something in saying that. As well, you have a pretty close minded circle of friends, no offense. If they all think that way, then where's the fun in it? The best part of a friendship is the intelligent arguements you can have with them about anything and everything. That's just the way I am, call me weird if you like.

Canadian people who received middle school education (EDIT: here in Canada) are mostly idiots. The only intelligent person I know is a Korean kid and a black, he's cool, male from Texas.

Do you mean a middle school only education? Nowadays most jobs require at least a high school education. In my province, there's a lot of Asian children, so generally, the completion of College/University is high here. Although, the number of unemployed is also quite high. Is there a connection there someplace? I think so, but I'll leave it to your imagination.

I tutor middle school kids...for my 40 hours of community service to graduate this year, oh yeah! Anyways, there was one time...last week I think they were studying geography and the questions where...what is a hydrocarbon. Naturally the answer is a COMPOUND made of HYDROGEN and CARBON, which are ELEMENTS that group into MOLECULES. I was so frustrated teaching this to those gr. 6 students when they don't even know what those bolded words are! Heck I memorized the table of elements in gr. 1 and studied them in school in gr.4. So I say, Canadian kids are stupid, more work for me though yay.
