You might be "pretty sure" you've been scammed by Canadians, but i'm certain of it!

I'm in the business. The pumps are calibrated often. Stiff penalties and fines, if there is any sort of rigging or gouging.

On behalf of the rest of us, allow me to apologize. We simply can't help ourselves though - we see you coming, and we secretly hate...err, I mean mildly dislike...the fact that you get everything so much cheaper than us. So we take justice into our own hands.

Now, if you are interested in any property up here, I know of a nice 1650 sq ft townhouse going for $470,000. Verrrrry reasonable. Good buy.

lol, makes complete sense. You take advantage of those who are unfamiliar with loonies and toonies. Best thing you "NORTH" Americans ever taught me was vinegar on my fries, and Windsor is great for one night stands when you are 19 years old.

Oh yeah, and Cheetah's is the classiest establishment in the country.

Really - is vinegar on fries not very common in the U.S.? I trust you use malt vinegar instead of regular white vinegar...so much better.

I'm happy we were able to provide some life long benefit to you. More of you should visit - helps our economy!

It's a very big thing in the northeast but west of there or south of the Mason-Dixon it's pretty rare. I'm the only person I know who eats fries with malt vinegar and everyone who sees me looks at me like I've lost my mind.

America has a fry trend of its own though, try dipping a Wendy's fry in a chocolate Frosty.

I could never understand the American language well... Especially since us Canadians speak English... Eh!

And typical 5th grader comment about Us Canadians being NORTH AMERICANS.... Can you tell me what continent United States is in?

Bet you would say Central America eh!

I'm enjoying it while I can but my family has a history of short-lived metabolisms. Mine is due to go in about 5 years at which point Ill be able to survive on a carrot stick a day.

Surprisingly not from what I have found. Malt vinegar is the only way to go when the choice is there, but when I went to SC a few days ago, I had to suffice with red wine vinegar. I will use whatever is at my dispense.

Now if only we could get poutine down here.

They are constantly calibrated here, I have never had an issue in 11 years.
