    It's ok. Everyone in Canada knows that west coasters can't drink like us on the east anyways. It's all good I guess

    My Moms side is Acadien And English, Followed by Scottish on the old mans. We could have a good little go at er. You mainlanders just dont know what real beer is because you guys all water down your beer. It's not the same. A Keiths on the East is not the same as a Keiths in Ontario or Other parts.

    Ummm... actually although I was born a "Mainlander" - north central BC, I lived almost my entire life in the Victoria area.... so although I started as a Mountain Boy, I'm really an Islander.

    I should also add that Butt-weiser beer to the list too... Anyone who drinks something that came from barrels being towed by horses...... {how do you think they fill them barrels anyhow?}

    And since it is "beer" related, just got this from my boss...

    DEEP THOUGHTS BY MEN WHILE FISHING

    Two men are out ice fishing at their favorite fishing hole, just fishing quietly and drinking beer.

    Almost silently, so as not to scare the fish, Mel says, "I think I'm
    going to divorce my wife - she hasn't spoken to me in over 2 months."

    Earl continues slowly sipping his beer, then thoughtfully says, "You
    better think it over - women like that are hard to find."

    Ok Malahat and NDVFDFF33 It's time for another CANUCK to chime in. I was born and raised on the only Island in Canada that truely matters. VANCOUVER ISLAND! As a true Islander I can tell you the only good beer is LUCKY LAGER Now NDVFDFF33 I will admit that the East Coast boys can drink,(almost as much as us Island boys), however you aint a East Coaster. Your from Ontario man... check the map you aint nothing but a Centeral Canada Tea sipper. Damm it man an American could almost out drink you. No offence to our brothers in the South.

    LMFAO firedog!!! Interesting twist to the conversation. I'm learning so much about Island family relations ummmm relationships, and up-Island rivalries Wasn't Campbell River really low on that list that just came out of the best/worst communities in Canada? Along with Duncan and Port Alberni.

    Well Respect Campbell River is one of the better places to live on the Island. It recieves top billing all the time. In fact some British magazine just rated Campbell River as the # 1 city to live in. Besides if this place was so bad it wouldn't be full of all you Damn Albertans looking for place to live. Once 1 Albertan moves out here, in a week his whole family is packing up and moving here too. LOL

    Actually of all the "Up" Island places to be, I'd rather be in C.R. than pretty much anywhere else. You really can't beat the weather (most of the year) and the camping/fishing is truly awesome. Not too many places on the planet can you get up at 4am, hit the water and fish salmon till around 10am, tie up alongside, swing a round of 18, and then for "supper" do a little night skiing (not that I have any interest in winter sports: I'd rather just sit in the hot tub! ).

    I can mostly do without the mills there (I spent my summers up in PG, so I "know" pulp mills LOL) but between the beauty of the region itself and the location in general, it is very nice. But ....

    I STILL LIKE THE VICTORIA AREA BETTER!

    LOL good comeback.

    I was actually just buggin' ya though. I have no idea where Campbell River placed on that list I heard them yabbering about on the radio the other day. The Island communities didn't fare well though, which is insanity. Guelph beat us for crying out loud!

    I've never been to anywhere up Island yet. As Rick can attest to, I've only been to Spectacle Lake and Mill Bay to the grocery store, and some little beach a bit down the road from there ... Bamberton? Well Jenn and the girls and I did drive a bit further than Mill Bay one day. I think we made it to the outskirts of Duncan, but I'm not really sure, and I hardly think that qualifies as having "been to Duncan". Would LOVE to get the chance to see the Island and do some exploring though, I'm sure I'll be open-jawed the whole way. Victoria is nice, but I'm sure it's just the tip of the iceberg and there's a plethora (haha) of spectacular scenery to see.

    Well Sheri, mostly you aren't missing much, but the Comox Valley is actually very nice, and so is the Campbell River area. There is a lot of logging and mining and fishing history up that way, but the scenery really is truly awesome. Not quite Banff/Jasper awesome, but a very close second! LOL

    I know what you mean about Prince George being a stinky mill town. Port Alberni is the same too. Both those towns have thier mills in the center of town. The mill in Campbell River is North of town, and the wind generaly blows south/east here so most days you cann't even smell the mill. however there is times when you can smell it though, but I dont think its that toxic though. Or thats at least what all those three headed babies say.
