I think it's gowing alot over the last few years. I pass the local cricket grounds in my way to work and there's tons of people playing. I've seen more coverage on TV lately. I bet if you look and our national team it's filled with people who have moved from England, India etc. I remember at the Winter Olympics about 3/4 of Italy's hockey team were born in Canada

No love for Chinese? I'm sitting in TIMES SQUARE right now (100% chinese mall in Richmond Hill) using the computer in a NET CAFE surrounded by chines people playing WARCRAFT or some shit. I have tons of asian friends and don't know what the hell you are talking about.

It was a simple example because CHINATOWN is the most obvious area in the city for illegal immigrants just like Scarborough is for arabic people. Same thing...it has nothing to do with a certain race.

Uhm, let's just say, they aren't the most keen drivers out there. Also, my theory is that, a lot of them are quite wealthy and drive nice expensive cars. Naturally, you would want to make sure nothing happens to it. So, they tend to drive with "extra caution".

Ok this seems like the right place to ask since all the Canadians are gathered in the same spot...

Thing is, I am going on holiday to Canada at the end of August and for most of September and I would like to know what the weather would most probably be like at that time. I'll be starting in Vancouver and Victoria and going to the Rockies (and also cruising on the Alaskan inside passage which you may not be able to help me with). Then I'm also flying over to the east to Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Quebec City.

I'm really confused right now with which kind of clothing I should pack because I don't want to have to pack loads of clothing when I'll need room for souvineers :p

Peta, assume it will mainly be hot (hot being into the 20s C for someone like me originally from Scotland!) Vancouver tends to be slighter cooler than the east cost in the summer. You shouldn't need many heavy clothes, but make sure you have something you can wear in the evening when it gets cooler and probably for the cruise too.

The following link is really good for the weather in Canada. If you enter the city then click on the Statistics link on the left hand side, you get maximums and minimums per month. Also, once you have entered a city, you can input a single day or a range of dates and get the minimum and maximum for that period, so you could enter September 2006 to see what it was like last year.

I'm so excited for your trip, you're going to have a wonderful time!

03-25-2007, 09:41 PM
Peta, Cathy provided some very good information already and here're my 2 cents.

Basically, it's warm all over in Canada during that time of year. Temperature varies from 20s to 30s. The humidity in the west coast is bearable but Ontario and Quebec may be a bit high.

The only time you need a warm jacket is when you're in the Rockies. The altitude is high and inland. So it's warm during day time but cool off pretty well once the sun set.

Whenever I visited the Rockies during summer, I brought a jacket with me for early morning or late night. The jacket needs to be able to keep you warm in above 0°C and handle breeze.

Peta...don't waste your time with other cities. Toronto is the only city you should visit unless you want to see trees and rivers, which im sure you can do back in Australia. You wanna party? Come to Toronto.

There is no life in most Canadian cities...Calgary has quite a few cowboy hicks but other than that its boring and everyone talks like they are from Kentucky. Vancouver is nice but it's a cheap version wannabe of Toronto with fancy little mountains around it. Their stadium roof just fell apart a few months ago. Going to Ottawa is like putting your head in a carboard box, Montreal is fun but the french people get so annoying and all the other cities are the same. The Rockies are more exciting on the US side and you can just google them and it will be the same as visiting them.

Just pack up all the slutty little outfits you own and come on down to Richmond Street in Toronto.

I DO want to see trees and rivers.. fancy that! I can see them in Australia, but I'd like to now see some Canadian trees and rivers :p

Thing is I'm not much of a party-goer (and if I was I'm sure I could do it in Australia rather than travel to the other side of the world), I'm more of a sight-seer so in that way the west is the best spot for me, but I really wanted to see Niagara Falls so I decided to head to the east too. I'm quite looking forward to heading up the CN Tower while in Toronto though.
