1. How come there's a blank room in the entrance of The Beer Store???

When you enter a The Beer Store establishment, there's just an empty room in the front.

3. Well, "the beer store" is an Ontario thing
I assume it's for knocking off your boots and keeping the cold out in the winter

2. Canadian health insurance
What do you like, what could be better?

Would you trade the Canadian system for the US system?

6. Well, I'm no expert on our healthcare
Personally I would never trade it.

What I like, whenever I get hurt they don't ask for a credit card.

What I dislike

Sometimes emergency waits are pretty big

16. I Know You're a Cubs Fan
Does it have to be Polar and will Illinois allow you a visa to wander into a Wrigleyville DU bar with a press-pass?

Dimbo is still PO'd about trading Sammy Sosa to the Chicago Cubs before his presidentuarity.

18. Press pass...to a major game..hmmm
May be tricky.

But I'd love to make the trip.

I'm not "a cubs fan" meanig I follow the team in have a cubs cap and all, but I cheer for em when they're on.

My big teams are Baltimore, Boston, and Montreal. .....Seattle too (as a good Vancouver boy)

20. You are aware that there is a Baseball team called that?
It was triple A in the PCL..now just single A

ANyway, I doubt they could..it's sad...mainly because ( as unreal as it sounds) Vancouver was a HUGE baseball town before the Canucks came to town...even my Dad said when he was a kid in the fifties the big deal was the world series not the Stanley cup.

BUt I doubt they could..it's ashame...I'd love that
