Yes the distances are a pain. Canada is such a massive country-just huge

I'd enjoy getting a round of poutine for everyone and meeting all the lads in person. Always wanted to visit Montreal and its high society-

Have fun anyway!

You mean Ontario is a massive place.

Ever drive across Northern Ontario? It'll take you 2 days.

Yes, drove in the winter from Grande prairie to the Annapolis valley -not recommended. Ontario took three days! It was quite spooky at times in the remote parts, unmanned garages, tractor trailers in the trees. I had a hard time at the lakes due to endless snow squalls and took a detour from Wa Wa to Timmins and dropped south to the Transcanada.
