Dear Jaimie,

There is a circular pool and fountain somewhere in British Columbia, prolly on the grounds of a government building in Vancouver, and that is where I waded and splashed...that is my defining memory of Canada, it was such a hot day and I was maybe four years old.

Such a totally wonderful time so I still remember, because when I was four years old that would have been the summer of 1949!

And now in 2016 if I were to characterize Canada in two words, it is "friendly, gracious."

Jaimie here is something I associate with Canada, see what you think?
When I watched CBC News Vancouver 2001-2010, they commemorated the veterans much more than US news. Every anniversary of important battles in WWI, they would run specials and honor the warriors.

I thought it was wonderful, and I learned a great deal because of course the US was usually involved in those same battles.

@Jaimie JT... I have to assume you live in Ontario, as they have the OPP. But out west here the Mounties are the police except in the larger cities. No Alberta Provincial Police, :)

Oh Jaimie maybe we are thinking of the same one, it is the Mayerthorpe Tragedy, four officers were killed March 3, 2005.

"This was the worst one-day loss of life for the RCMP[1] and the worst multiple-officer killing in modern Canadian history."

It would be so funny to turn out that way!
I guess i'm gonna do as you say my curious side is killing me! but you know! few times the Skype thing happened! and i told my girlfriend this is the story and i just wanna go ahead and see what's the atmosphere, if it's true, a lie or just how further they going. i couldn't believe my girlfriend was thinking about their emotions! she opened my mind to a perspective that i never thought of! she was like whatever they look into when they understand you weren't interested from the first place! they gonna hurt! and i was disagree! i'm like DUH! they look for any guy whoever it is they don't care IF they be true tho!!
And one time i got involved with one of them where the cheeky person whoever it was she was sending me a model's photos (which contain selfies) so it sounds natural but i knew it! "sigh" SOME PEOPLE! you can't never know what kind of people could be out there ;p!

Just be careful Matt :) anything too good to be true probably is ... Just saying . I've heard horror stories of " girls " luring guys into sending them inappropriate pictures with face in ... Then it turns out to be some dudes from India or some place blackmailing them with pics they've sent ...

Yea i have to watch my steps even when i'm playing fun! one of the other worst things i can imagine is some can use hacking codes or virus files to send over within other formats or communication! anything could be possible! and i have to be careful! agree and will do! :)

But don't be worry I would never ever send anything from my side! at all! i'm not even going to go for these stuff! i got curious as you suggested i got more motivated to just to see how it goes to be!
