Yes. Well... I try to :P

I referee too, i've reached the dizzying heights of Semi-Pro. But of a minority sport I guess it's not that exciting

Oh dear. I sincerely hope you're better than the folks I saw playing hockey last time I was in Scotland. :redface:

Depends. I've only been playing for 2 years, and properly skating for an equal amount of time. Chances are i'm not better

:-p If you can make your passes connect and skate like you're not in pain then you'd be ahead of the Murrayfield Racers. I felt embarassed for them and for my Daddy who had coached their club (successfully) for a couple of seasons in the '90s

I always thought Canada was a nice, albeit slightly duller version of America. Like everything's more mundane, and also cleaner, safer, stuff like that. I'm in Asia so I've got no first-hand experience of the country. So imagine the shock I got when I saw www.notcanada.com

The webby makes Canada seem like an immigration hellhole.

Interesting website...
I would say slightly overdone and exaggerated. Many of the facts they use are only relevant to Ontario. Some of the facts are also outdated, but the valid point about obtaining work in professional fields is accurate. I myself am planning on obtaining a law degree in England, and this would not allow me to practice in Canada upon completion. I would need to do a great number of conversion courses in order to be approved by the Law Society of Canada

Are you Canadian? Hmm I guess you'd be better off studying in your country if you wanted to practise there. But law in the UK is probably more lucrative and the universities usually more reputable.
