I came as a working man ::)  easy enough in those days Jackie. Up in the Peace River country of B.C.  Very little there in 1969 as far as a town,but tons of work. Now it has the highest average wage in B.C. supposely.

Its been quite a while since I talked to you.   Lived in the Metro T.O. from 83 to 2003  The " Sars " and the big Blackout sent me packing again.

  Moorsy, I believe you were one of the first people I ever talked to on the BF. When I went on Canada Today.

                     It is still going Moorsy. Some of the old members are still there. We try to keep it going.

                    The 404 goes up to the Green Lane now. The north end of Newmarket. Your right it used to end at Davis Drive. Hwy 9.

Hi moorsy, our bobby and I have be in Canada 53 yrs, we came about 8 months after we got married  in 1967.  Tough as it was in the beginning we did the right thing, life is good  :)

We miss all the old posters who kept Canada Today lively and funny but we are still hanging on. I hope all is well with you.  :-* :-*

Hello Moosy,
61 years arrived in To. on  March, 1958. Lived in Toronto and Winnipeg mainly, periods in Bissett Man. Ft, Erie Ont. (Kingston Ont, Petawa Ont. Gagetown NB, Edmonton, Victoria army days) still in Winnipeg.

as they say, I started out with nothing and believe it or not, I still have most of it left!

Nice to hear from you again, the Military does move you around. So you are back in the Peg? lived in N.Kildonan in 70s and ST. B. in 2003-05. Then Gimli till 2010 before B.C.   next move will be under the grass ::)
