- Have a conversation in English and French.
- Complain about the weather, especially when it's snowy and really cold.
- Go out in -30 weather. Put on longjohns, thick wooly socks, a ski mask, a big parka, a scarf, thick gloves and Kodiak boots.
- Figure out what to wear when the windchill is at -20 C at 7 am, but it'll be plus 10 C at 4 pm.
- Order a double-double at Tim Hortons (Coffee with double cream double sugar).
- Go to the sugar shack, i.e where they collect maple sap and make maple syrupe. Eat beans, pork and pancakes.
- Shovel the wind row left by the municipal snow plough at the front of your driveway. Then shovel it again when he returns.
Oh, you can please some of the people all of the time, or all of the people some of the time, or most of the people every now and then, even if ya can't please none of the people all of the time!!!!!

And Finally: A reader asked, How do Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver differ?
To which Andrew McGlinchey answered: I heard this joke from a taxi driver in Toronto:
- In Toronto, they say, "Thank god it's Monday." (Stereotype: In Toronto, everyone is all about making money.)
- In Montreal, they say, "Thank god it's Friday." (Stereotype: In Montreal, they like to go out and have fun.)
- In Vancouver, they say (speak in stoner voice), "What day is it, man?"
