[from my email files - just a bit of humour]-----
We get some weird questions here in Canada too, so we decided to post on our tourism web site some Questions that we received from international guests, and the Canuck answers: (oh....and my apologies in advance to anybody who might feel offended)
Q: I have never seen it warm on TV, so how do the plants grow? (UK)
A: We import all plants fully grown and then just sit around watching them die.
Q: Will I be able to see Polar Bears in the street? (USA)
A: Depends how much you've been drinking.
Q: I want to walk from Vancouver to Toronto - can I follow the railroad tracks? (Sweden)
A: Sure, it's only six thousand km, take lots of water. . .
Q: Is it safe to run around in the bushes in Canada? (Sweden)!
A: So it's true what they say about Swedes.
Q: It is imperative that I find the names and addresses of places to contact for a stuffed beaver. (Italy)

Q: Can you give me some information about hippo racing in Canada? (USA)
