“Not log ago we would have seen Ukrainian and French in a couple parts of Alberta. But there has been a MASSIVE inflow of Mexican and Belize Mennonites to Alberta.

“I keep thinking if Australia is as habitable as the Europe, what or how many civilisation could have been established, how many wars could have been fought and how many legendary stories could have been told through generations. After all it’s even bigger than western Europe in size”–rwang8721
