Dybbuk Schmybbuk: Canada is adorable. It will be a great country when they get it finished.


Seeing as you're scrapping your own country can we salvage some parts off of yours?
It makes more sense than just burning everything to the ground.

GrogSmash: I suggest we build a wall.  A big beautiful wall, the likes of which no one has ever seen (especially Mexico... one that works)...  And make the Americans pay for it.


Most will line up to pay. Just tell them it will make Jesus happy, stop climate change, lower and raise regulations, or remove bad people from political office. Don't name any politicians specifically, let them assume.

Well in the American's defence, it's hard to tell that you're not in America when you're in Alberta. It's pretty much the 51st State.

Sure sounds like Canadians aren't really worried about COVID-19 and just pissed about parking availability at Banff.

We can use some of that sweet, sweet US currency in Calgary; send them our way please.

I had my honeymoon in Banff and Jasper.  They are beautiful.  They will still be there when the pandemic is over.   Stay healthy, my friends.

TwowheelinTim: I'm surprised nobody has yet called out submitter for the improper use of the word malingering. I expect more from you Farkers. WTF?


If you can parse the grammar of a headline it's a miracle and you're worried about mixing up linger and malinger. Welcome to Fark I guess.

Gaylord Q. Tinkledink: Well in the American's defence, it's hard to tell that you're not in America when you're in Alberta. It's pretty much the 51st State.


As I mentioned in a thread a few days ago, Gaylord is a goddam moron who doesn't know a goddam thing about Alberta.  As someone that lives in Banff, it is far to the left of most of the rest of Canada, despite what Gaylord might think   How about we start calling Ontario 'Klantario'?   This happened in Toronto:  https://twitter.com/howshehustles/sta​t​us/1274174964405501952

We should be kicking these morons out of the country, banning them for life, and taking their car if they don't immediately pay the fine. As a 'destination', we're going to have enough trouble keeping the virus out without importing it.

puffy999 I mean, isn't hiking social distancing?

In my experience, international tourists don't do 'real' hikes where you are actually socially distanced.  We have a lot of easy 'tourist trails' that are packed, and they stick to those, ride the gondola, eat a restaurants and head to the packed sightseeing areas.  The 'real' hikes are mostly done by people that live within a few hundred klicks.

swaniefrmreddeer: and some disease-ridden 'muricans are going to come here


Hey, that's not nice, pal. I mean, sure, I'm American. Am I diseased? Yes. But that doesn't mean you should call me out publicly.

Meanwhile some U.S. Iditarod racers tried to follow all the brand-new CN rules in order to go home from AK to the lower 48.

The headline was much easier to parse than the turd you left here. Englishes are hard aren't they.

Good for Canada.

Americans need to learn that actions have consequences.

Never been into mountaineering, have you? The log books at the top of nearly every summit that I've been to is full of German, Austrian, Swiss, and to a lesser extent norther Italian hikers.Now if you wanted to say that slovenly crass American prototourists never leave the boardwalk areas, then yes I would agree, by getting a few hundred feet off the beaten path you've left 98% of the crowds behind. If you avoid the top 5 trails in a given area you've left another probably 80% behind. Even in places like the White Mountains in NH that are a Mecca for outdoor enthusiasts it's not at all difficult to find a trail where you might pass by a few people on a half day hike.

He's right, though. Your sentence structure sucks.

Is there a collective noun for Grammar Nazis? Might be time for one...

Mr. Shabooboo: swaniefrmreddeer: They need to criminally charge every one of those motherf*ckers. We worked really hard to get our numbers this low, and some disease-ridden 'muricans are going to come here and f*ck that up, I don't think so. There are some real selfish bastards down there.

Sounds like you need to build a big polite wall...eh


As long as 'murica is paying for it.

I hike, climb and mountaineer all the time.  And while there are exceptions, the vast, vast majority of foreign tourists never leave the beaten path.

We get 4 to 6 million tourists a year.  if there are a couple of people signing a logbook at the top of a mountain, its still an extreme outlier.

evilsofa: consisting entirely of turns to the left or right.


To be fair all turns are to the left or right, because, unfortunately, few highways have vertical loops in them.
