Yes but (without offending), Toronto is a Soul-less Wasteland....

I can attest to the fact you can average higher speeds than this on 
even North American secondary highways like Hwy 15.... 

I guess the point remains though that you get things like someone 
asking your average Canadian "You're from Toronto? I know Bob 
something or other from Toronto. Do you know him?" (TO has 6-7 
million if you count the outlying burbs). You also get the "Well I'm 
in TO too, lets get together, since we live in the same town.... what 
do you mean it'll take 3 hours to get there?".	Canada is built on a 
scale most Europeans probably can't imagine until they visit (many 
Canucks that don't travel can't either....) and that is why 
newsgroups like this and the Internet are a great way to meet and 
interact with other gamers..... In NetSpace, No one can see you fudge 
a die roll or chit pull.... (grin).
