Plan B for November 9
 
Well, we’re flattered. Since Super Tuesday, we (and Google) have been asked many, many times how Americans can move to Canada. Behold, a handy guide to wooing Canadians, learning how to swill maple syrup and developing a passion for poutine and ice sports.
 
 
Some number-crunching showing that the Great White North is … actually not that far north.
 
Check out these nifty tables and other data showing just how far south most Canadians live compared with many, many European and Asian vacation destinations. Perhaps surprising to those who refuse to believe we produce (great) wine domestically!
