Thunder Bay is basically the opposite of Veg*n friendly; Sure we have Chinese restauraunts and stuff that serve the odd meat-free dish, but basically this city was founded on traping fur and hunting moose. Recently the big Spring Bear Hunt contraversy was the Biggest news here- apparently billions of dollars were lost in their industry- LOL. Anyways in general; my city is VERY unfriendly towards anyone who doesn't drive a pick up, hunt , play hockey or start drunken street brawls- The rumours you may of heard about the "Lake-head" are all true. I need to save my pesos and move away form here, really!

Yup you've gotta love Thunder Bay. Two years there was more than enough for me.

Jenangelcat: I just found out from the other thread that you're in Ottawa. Cool. Have you ever been to the Green Door or the Table?

when I'm ready to move outta my miserable city, I'd like to pick somewhere warm year round- maybe Vanc. Isle. or if I feel like leaving Canada I would take up in guatamala or somewhere cheap, apperently it's a good place to retire maybe that's what I'll do

I can't wait to it really be spring out there....I mean today isn't bad but I want to wear shorts!

And eat fresh tomatoes from my garden...when will it be warm...

may be I'll meet you on Vancouver Island...I absolutely love it out there but its a little out of my current price range...right now southern ontario will have to do..

Hey Ottawa girls...I'm heading up there for Canada day...I love all the restaurants you were discussing...my aunt in Ottawa is vegan and we also go in for that buffet..so yummy.

Just nice to feel slightly closer to the vegans of the world knowing that you live atleast in my province.

I want sunshine!!!! It's been raining too much. Of course the grass looks nice and green but I want sunshine. I went to two weddings this weekend and last and it poured for both. Ahh!!!



Another topic: Does anyone ever camp?

I love Algonquin park.

my brother works at a summer camp in algonquin park most summers, it's a beautiful area. haven't camped there yet myself. have a few bike races this summer that i'll be campin out for. they're 24 hour endurance races, we get a campsite to set up and those of us not racing stay at the site and help out the racers between laps. it's fun. also interesting to see what the human body is like after 40 hours without sleep. one race is at Kelso in Milton, one is at Hardwood Hills, one is at Albion. all nice areas





hey i have an unrelated question. anyone know if OHIP covers naturopathic clinics and such?

That's really awesome Lady Faile. Camping there is wonderful, I've only been once and it's where my husband proposed. We hiked about 3 hours to get to the campsite but it was beautiful on a very private lake.



To answer your unrelated question, I doubt it but private insurance might. OHIP doesn't even cover travel visits or wart removals ( I work at a medical clinic) Let me know what you find out. It's too bad that there isn't more of an emphasis on preventative medicine.

Hey my Ontario Vegans!

No OHIP does not cover Naturopaths. Most private plans cover up to a set amount each year. But even those often don't cover any of the things (herbs, vitamins etc) that you Naturopath might suggest.

Hey LF I live pretty close to Milton so its cool that you will be racing there.

thanks for the OHIP info. i've been having a tough time finding a doc around here so i was hoping if naturopaths were covered i could go that route instead. i'd prefer it and there are tons of them in town. but we don't have insurance yet until my bf gets hired onto his job full time, and at the moment we're not even sure if he'll still have a job in two weeks. they're doing some layoffs but might keep a couple of the temps and hire them fulltime so he's hoping. and so am i. $5/hour raise plus full health benefits including dental and even massage therapy. how sweet would that be

Hey AuroraLily, I grew up about a half-hour drive from Algonquin Park, in Huntsville. Ive been to the park more times than I can remember, doing everything from day hikes to week-long solo canoe trips in the more northern areas. Between my parents who are outdoor enthusiasts, and my high school with their beginning of the year outtrips, Ive spent a decent amount of my life in the bush. Just writing about it is bringing back great memories.



LadyFaile, what camp does your brother work at? A good friend of mine has a family cottage on Canoe Lake, and spent many of his summers as a camper and then later a councilor at Camp Ahmek.

he bounces around. it's the caterer for the camps he actually works for, so it depends on where they need him each year. he started off at Tamakwa, did a summer at New Moon, and umm oh i don't remember the name of the other one. i'll ask next time i talk to him.

kids know him as the freaky kitchen guy who screeches for no reason and chases them with utensils. he's an odd duck. though at the camp it's partly due to sleep deprivation i think.

I didn't see one person wearing a mask and we went to a club at Spadina & College - right around China town. Everyone seemed really relaxed about it. The club was at its max capacity and there were people lined up outside waiting to get in.



I foster cats and right now the kitten season is hitting us hard. Is there anyone here that is interested in adopting a cat? This is my third time posting this link on the VB, but persistance is a virtue . I know most of us are living in homes over-run with furry friends, but think about it and recommend us to your friends. Make every second question you ask today, tomorrow, etc. be "are you interested in adopting a cat?" THANKS.

I currently live in Kingston. I came here in 1998 to go to school. I hope to move in the next few years, when my fi finds her career job.

I wish I had more space where I currently live, then I could say yes.

Hmm, I dont know that family. My father might though. I swear he knows everyone in town.



I just graduated with a BA in Geography. I plan to be a stay-at-home father though, after which I would like to get into furniture making.

Shamus: I'll try to find out my great grandparents names.

Congratulations on your graduation. I think that's awesome about being a stay-at-home father. All the psychology research that I've read states nothing but positive benefits for all involved: children, mother and father. Enjoy it. Huntsville seems like a great town to raise a family.
