.. But I actually found it a little disconcerting that I didn't hear a single Ontarian refer to yesterday's holiday as "Victoria Day". Maybe it's been officially changed to "go out to the cottage and breathe slightly less foul air day" but I didn't get the memo on that one.
All Ontarians seem to be able to talk about is housing, whether it's the proliferation of real estate advice shows on local TV channels, where real estate agents anser callers' questions by telling them bo buy in the region they happen to work in, or home improvement shows or every topic of of every conversation I seem to walk by and overhear, everyone is obsessed with their daily commute, the expensive little patch of property they were able to afford with what they earn while at work and away from home for 12 hours a day, and the equally expensive patch of property they dream to own up North which will make it all worth while.
Suckers. Every last one of them.
Then again, Moncton's not that much better - small city trying to act like a big one.
