It is quite true. When I went to school out east, people thought I was lying about being from Toronto because I wasn't sporting Uggs andsweats and mommy and daddy didn't pay my way.

I've been everywhere but Newfoundland and territories. One day

Spent some time in Manitoba and Saskatchewan while I was stationed in North Dakota. Took the RCMP Academy tour and hit the Casinos in Regina, and went to hockey games in Brandon and Winnipeg. Played a game against the Canadian Forces guys in Portage la Prairie. Enjoyed the "night life" in Winnipeg when I was 19-20-ish (since I couldn't drink in the States, but could in Canada).

The main ones, i.e. the 6 important ones, i.e. not the Maritimes, i.e. not the territories. I wouldn't mind going out east sometime though since I'd like to see Halifax.

Cities:
BC - Kelowna, Vancouver, Tofino
Alberta - Calgary, Edmonton, Banff
Saskatchewan - Regina, Saskatoon
Manitoba - Brandon, Winnipeg, a handful of small towns
Ontario - Kenora (practically Manitoba ), Toronto, Ottawa
Quebec - no towns or cities, just the highway

Alberta for Spring Break a few years ago...went to games in Calgary and Edmonton and went to Banff and Jasper. Loved most of it.

I've been on the Ontario side of Niagara Falls a couple times as well...but that's it.

British Columbia and Quebec will be added this year.

Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Saskatchewan.

Saskatchewan was by far the most boring.

I wish more people had an opportunity to visit Nunavut, it really is an incredible place. Here are a few pictures I've taken from the last couple of years.

Wish I could see what Nunavut was like but when I was in Iqaluit last month, it was pretty much always too dark to see anything.

I still have yet to visit:

-Newfoundland
-Yukon
-Nunavut

I do, however, enjoy being one of the few people who've visited Nunavik - not its own territory, but near enough.

Best places, IMO:

-Vancouver
-Banff-Jasper-Field triad
-Calgary
-Kenora
-Saguenay
-Lunenberg, Spencer's Island (NS)

Honourable mention: Yellowknife (such a weird place)

The only time I've been to Canada was when I was in Detroit, crossed over to Windsor for literally 45 minutes then came back. It was surprising how much different Detroit and Windsor were.
