    Default Where are all my Canadian friends?

    How do we need to break down Canada on a forum like like? Large areas? Do it by province and then the cities in those provinces maybe?

    Canada, as you know is a big place (larger than the US)...but has a small population (1/10th of the US)

    Dividing it into the provinces is probably your best bet. I wouldnt worry about the cities.....I think most of the truckers are country people. Everyone and their brother has one out where I live

    Just by Province is probably the best break down. We are so spread that the only way it would be important to us would be first by province and then city if a further breakdown is available. It is amazing how many pickups I see all over Toronto and area.

    Even by province is a small group, maybe a larger area like West, Central, East would work

    Just under 10% of the visitors to this site come from Canada. That's pretty signification so I don't want to deny my heritage (my grandmother was Canadian, born in Victoria BC) and get it wrong, eh?

    Winnipeg here. I agree, by province is a small group.
    Possibly BC/Alberta, Mb/Sask (that just doesn't sound right), Ont, Quebec and the Maritimes.

    I've got another idea. Lets try thread prefixes.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Until we can grow the number of active Canadian members, you can group messages according to area by using thread prefixes. Once it grows more, we'll maybe split it into East, Central and West.
