Provinces

Canada started on the East although the eastward island of Newfoundland didn’t join until the 1940’s but now we are 10 provinces stretched in a continuous row from east to west coasts.

We are entirely in North America. Below us immediately to our South is the United States of America (USA). We were one until the famous Boston (USA) tea party.

Above the provinces & also part of Canada are three territories that extend above the Arctic Circle. The Arctic extending North to our globe’s North Pole’

Event Discussions

Many lodge discussions are open to all residents & under the general direction of a moderator from recreation. I quickly learned to ‘kiss” (keep it simple stupid). Let me explain.

There had just been a nasty accident on a rail line in quebec province and one result was a fire in a care home. Residents at our lodge meeting were asked if the railroad rules should be more strict, It coincidentally happened that I was familiar with this disaster & I perked up that “no” (The rules were strict but the implementation weak) where upon the moderator said I was disrespecting the many residents who spoke in favor of stricter rules. I shut up immediately because i had just learned that many mentally impaired residents could no longer distinguish between those unimpaired & impaired

Why do i tell this story? In the hope that visitors understand.
