Ah yes... the Volkswagen Eurobus.

I've seen better Volkswagens

And yet, I'd rather drive that than ANY American car! *gag*

On a smiliar note, who is running the automotive business in Nothing?

(Does Canada even have car manufacturers? Seriously though... there's American, German, Japanese, Italian... Canadian?)

Most of us go to our grave with our music still inside of us.

there isn't anything wrong with canada.

::stands up and delivers her denzel washingtonish-tear-jerking monologue::  

we are the land of students who pay for their own university and buy their own first car.

where colour and neighbour are spelled with a u, and fries are eaten with vinegar.

::symphony starts in::

we sit on chesterfields and wear toques, we complain to our prime-minister and bitch about paul martin.

we live in provinces and don't bother with pointless counties that give everything [courthouses, hospitals, etc] hickish sounding names.

our paper bills are different colours so they may be easily distinguished.  we're corteous and intelligent and thus do devote precious time out of our curriculums for learning about other people.  [we aren't self-absorbed].

::audience begins to cry::

we buy our deli meat by the gram, our gas by the litre and travel one hundred and seventy-two kilometers to the cottage [and can easily convert that into miles to aid our 'oh-so-powerful' neighbours when they look a little confused].

we put alcohol in our beer, know how to have a good wedding social [for the manitoban's out there] and no, queen elizabeth is not our queen.

::audience delivers standing ovation::         

as i've said, there isn't anything wrong with canada, rhonda.

i'm so bitterly disappointed.  betty, i think it's time you leave now.

Ron meant I was right about the nothing thing, not the Canada thing.  (But I'm right about that, too...lol).

(chuckling) Jen... you may now step off the soap box.. no offense was meant towards Canada. I do however find it amusing, you are discussing forming a new country out of Canada, and then step up to defend it...

Hey, WE find Canada amusing lol. Personally I don't think there's anything funnier than our sad excuse for a government.  
Anyone wanna buy the Vancouver Canucks? Please?

oh sad excuses for government you speak of beat many of the alternatives that exist. Canadians have much to be proud of...and as we all have..much they could improve on.

Actually..Canada has several production plants owned and operated by GM< Ford, and others. I do not know of a purely Canadian car maker although I am sure there are custom builders in many parts of Canada.

There are several Automotive parts manufacturing companies there as well as a number of retailers and wholesale operations that supply parts to independent dealers, repair shops, etc. Canada has a thriving automotive industry... but doesn't have a unique brand name car that I know of.

Hey, I didn't take time to read everything, so maybe this hasn't
been said this way......
I think the city should be built somewhere where there are
beaches all around....now aren't ya'll even a little bit surprised?!?
Anyway, it could possibly be on an island, like kinda in the Gulf Of Mexico.
