Go Alberta! Slams beer.

It's so dark for half the year, isn't everybody drunk all the time?

What I find a music is that the Nova Scotia rates pretty well match up with me on all three respects.  I guess I'm pretty average for my province.

This is canada my friends. Drinking fighting farking and doing dope of all sorts is all we have to do besides go to work.

It's likely the data on drinking comes from the Liquor Comission in each province.  Generally moonshiners and rum runners don't factor into that.

As a Canuck living in the U.S.A. who visits the homeland once a year or so, I am appalled at the price of booze in Canada. Thirty bucks for a 24? Serious financial restructuring would be needed in order for me to stay at the level of intoxication I am used to.
How about weed, what are the prices like, and can I go to a store to purchase?
You get spoiled down here....

All I know is this: if you're driving to Alaska, stop by a town called Whitehorse and order a few rounds for the locals. You may not remember it, but you'll have a great time.

you can't goto a store but anything more than 5 for $40 is a god damned robbery and it had damn well be good at that price.  Or so I have heard.

It's like .. a 5% variance. That's rather tiny. I've done a lot of travelling in Canada and the States, and really, if you like any vice, it's easy to get, anywhere, and lots of people are doing it, in all places.

Not in stores. I've heard on the streets it's $10-15 for a light gram, buying from a random dealer. If you have a half decent connection, $200-250 for an ounce of good stuff.

Pretty much this. The oil workers work long weeks, and then piss their money away on booze and strippers during their week off. Rare is the tarsands worker who can actually save some of the mad bank they make.

Having lived in Whitehorse for a time I beg to differ.  There is A LOT more alcohol being drank there than is being reported.

While every third guy in Fort Mac is from the rock, there still isn't a shortage of drinking.  I've partied on George Street and I've partied in MB/SK... I'm not buying the map.

Ontario is average because everyone lives there.  If Ontarians walked around drunk off their asses, doing bong hits on the way to work in a pot smoke filled office, they would still be about average.

The funniest thing I read recently was Barry Ritholtz's description of what it was like to walk two blocks in Regina in February. Pussy.

And that was a warm day, only -25 with the wind chill.

Personally I like when it's brutally cold - I get to wear my balaclava. Too bad here in- southern Ontario it doesn't go below -20 at all anymore.

I moved from BC to Alberta a little over a decade ago. First thing you notice are the private liquor stores on every corner, and adult video stores all over as well. That's what you find in a conservative province. In liberal BC you just have Hells Angels growing weed all over, and hippies smoking it.

Waitresses at steak houses are brought up for a couple weeks at a time from Edmonton and Calgary. They make insane tips but the trade-off is that you have to live in the ultimate shiathole - Ft McMurray.

Ft mc is a hard place to be. I lived there for years after finishing university. It doesn't deserve the bad rap though. People there work hard and play hard. But they do it honestly.

Originally Im a thunder bay guy. Lived there till I was 10. Lived all over the country since. Took a visit back in 96.
it was the most farked up winter I have ever seen. It was it's usual -20 to 30. But the snow, damn it was so much snow.

single story houses were totally buried. Bus shelters buried.
the roads had walls made of snow. Whoever found thunder bay and thought this would be a nice place to live is an idiot.

That was my first thought as well, since the bar to human ratio is higher there than anyplace else I've been.

But this data is quantitative only- how many people have indulged in a specific habit.  It lacks the qualitative component- how often that percentage gets loaded, and precisely how shiatfaced they get.  I would imagine that both Nova Scotia and NL fare well on that scale.
