    Here is the start of a regional map. If you don't like the way it's broke down, let me know. I just whipped this out and I don't have time to do it all right now. I'm not sure how to break up Canada so any help from you folks up north will be graciously accepted. I will also work on Europe when I get a chance since we have a few members there. I may need help with this one too.
    This whole thing is a going to take some time and probably a little pain. :rolleyes:

    Depending on who you talk to, Canada is broken into several sections.

    Pacific, Praries, Central and Atlantic.

    Pacific = BritishColumbia
    Praries = Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba
    Central = Ontario, Quebec
    Atlantic = PrinceEdwardIsland, NewBrunswick, NovaScotia, NewFoundland, Labrador

    The "NORTH" covers Nunavut, NWT and Yukon

    To make things really simple - you have the west vs central vs east.

    Everything west of Ontario is "WEST", Ontario is alone as central and east is covers the Atlantic provinces ... you notice no mention of Quebec in this paragraph .. sometimes those of us in the west try to forget that Quebec is part of Canada :gaah:

    Personally, I might split Canada up by province. It's such a HUGE area... for example, it's a 2-day drive to go across Ontario.

    It really doesn't matter how Canada is split, I just worry about where I am :wave:

    Thanks to that part that speaks Francais, I had to learn Francais where I grew up in Western Pa.

    Does that make you part of the mid-atlantic?

    Cool, looking forward to see the European map. Which will be way more difficult to divide up, I believe!

    Nunavut: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nunavut

    The NWT (North West Territories) was the original description of all lands north and west of Ontario till just over a hundred years ago when the provinces were no longer part of the territories but their own named regions.

    In 1999, Nunavut became its own province holding the most amount of land in Canada (about the size of Western Europe) and has the least amount of people holding that land (just under 30,000).

    I'm going to guess that that name came from the First People?

    It means "our land" in Inuktitut - the mother language of many of those who live in that province.

    Sorry, Bob! Certainly no offense intended; just referring to the over-abundance of liberals in CA. Of course, Maryland is a mostly blue state, too, so I probably shouldn't be one to talk . . .

    I apologize: I did not intend to offend.:ignore:

    Here is the new map. I'm still not completely happy with the break-up so suggestions are welcome.
    Vance, go ahead and delete the old one and replace it with this one. Thanks.

    I traveled across half of Canada in 1971, crossed in from ND, exited into Maine, had a good time!! met great people, really a cool place.....then I entered Qu-beK... If I lived in Canada I'd start a movement to let them go off and do their own thing... and it wasn't just one person!! it was everybody I had to deal with from the Gas station dude to the Waitress's... Took me years to remember they are a very small part of Canada..

    BUT I need to remember that we have NY , MA ,and CA...sorry BunkerBob , by the way I watched 2012 at long last...hope you can tred water dude!! :D

    Wasn't that a dipchit movie? or did I miss something?

    My first travel across Canada was in 1972 and things were really different back then. Quebec was on a rampage to seperate from the rest of Canada and treated all english-speakers like crap.

    I went across again in 2007 and my time spent in Quebec was much nicer and I was able to hack-n-bash my french well enough to be able to converse with those in the northern reaches of Quebec. Southern Quebec has great english skills ..
