In honour of my country's special day I wanted to find out what's your favourite memory in my country and the most ridiculous thing you did, with our drinking age being lower than yours I can only image the things you animals have done up here!

And if your an 11W user who lives here in Canada post where your from!

I'd have to say that I've had a fair number of Canadians.

Just say no to italics abuse.

As a teen growing up in Toledo, we were able to drive up to Windsor with our fake IDs (purchased at Bobs Photo ID in Detroit) and booze, gamble at Casino Windsor and hit up the gentlemans clubs. It was a great right of passage that as soon as your first buddy could drive, you'd light up Windsor. 

I have also had some really good times in Vancouver, Montreal, Calgary and an okay time in Toronto. 

Overall, I dig Canada and enjoy our neighborly relationship...but Stars and Stripes for life

My fiancee is from Owen Sound, ON.  We met in Cleveland over 2 years ago and we are getting married July 12th, 2014.  I took her to the Nebraska night game and yes she is now a Buckeye fan! 
 

I believe the SEC players put their pants on one leg at a time like we do.

Yup! And the dinner is a buffet with prime rib, pasta and chicken.

I had some Canadians visit me in college at TOSU, and those were the craziest individuals I ever met.  The stories behind what they did would probably violate some kind of usage policy here. If anything you should be telling us your stories.

Just in Vegas 2 weeks ago, alot went down.  I'll just say this, try to come out for the Calgary Stampede, don't let the rodeo and country music fool you it's a 10 day shitshow where anything goes.  It's spring break wearing plad and a cowboy hat.

Ford ain't got nothing on Lahey!

I'm thinking Mr. Ford would rather hang out with fellow crackhead Marion Barry.

Rob Ford was my favorite thing for a while, but this new apologetic phase is totally ruining it for me.

My memory is of a Niagara Falls trip with my kids which were ages 9 and 5 at the time. Our hotel was on the US side, which in our adventures we found that the Canadian side offered the nicer accommodations in comparison. Upon check in, as is customary the kids went to do the all important “swimming pool inspection”. Their report upon return was less than favorable, as a matter of fact it graded out a solid F. I have to admit that it wasn’t much to brag about, it was very small in comparison to other hotel pools they’d enjoyed in the past. Then also when you walked in you were over powered by the extreme amount of chlorine added to it, so you didn’t really want to stay long. Although the knight from Indiana Jones showed up to let me know that as far as the hotel went I had chosen poorly, I pretty much made them deal with it. I redeemed myself in their eyes with an unexpected stop at Cedar Point on the way home. This added a day to our trip, not to mention the additional cost. Yet, we stayed at one of the resorts which allowed us an early admission to the park (an hour earlier than general admission), which meant no waiting for the “Dragster”, which was quite popular at the time. It also provided Lake Erie as the swimming option, which suited them just fine. To this day their only real memory of our trip to Niagara is a terrible pool, but a fun day at Cedar Point. Pretty certain this isn’t the “rowdy” type story you’re looking for, never the less happy Canada Day.

Tribute to our Canadian cousins to the North.

Mark my words..I don't need acceptance. I'm catching interceptions on you innocent pedestrians.

Thank you Canada for RUSH!

Neil Young is better. Although if Canada is nice they'll keep Justin Beeber in their own country!
