    You old enough to drink here? 19
    If so, we'll go bar hoping and hit some parks. Will you be staying in some hotel? or what kind of trip are you taking? As you said you'll be traveling a lot, I'm just wondering

    Not sure of Vancouver spots, but I think theres alot of parks there.

    When you're in Toronto go downtown to the SkyDome (now called Rogers Centre) I havent skated there but theres a nice bank to curb ledge. A ledge down an 8 and a big 13 stair rail.

    CBC building is good too.

    Im not too sure about security at either spot, though I heard a long time ago that CBC was no hassle and there's a ton of marble ledges there.

    If you said you're old enough to drink, cover is $20 at alot of Toronto bars/clubs lol.

    Check out this site, it gives you the closest subway station to each spot too..

    I found a good site with more spots that I can give you, but I cant post URLs because I guess you need 15 posts. Email me at jeremiahsmith09@hotmail.com and I can send it to you.

    Yeah i'm 19, is that the legal drinking age?? thats a wierd age if it is lol. Cool man, i'm going with my friend and she doesn't skate unfortunately but i'm sure she'd be cool with bars and i'm sure she wouldn't mind either watching or just chilling or doing something else by herself for a day or two. Its basically 5months of a little world trip. I'm going to china, thailand, austrailia newzealand then canada. I set off at the end of march, it's gonna be amazing!:P. pretty much a month in each place.

    any relationship that matters - a friendship, a family, a romance, a band - anything - is a perilous and fragile thing because along with all the amazing experiences and creations that can come from something so intimate and exhausting comes the possibility for things to crumble and shatter or whither and die. when that happens, it's easy to forget what was precious amidst all the disaster. we should always carry our history with us but never let it bury us.

    If you stop by Windsor (Ontario) let me know (seriously), we have a crazy nightlife here and if you don't mind being around people you've not met before then you'll have a good time

    Oh yes, if you go into the CN Tower I'll tell you a little secret...the top floor is made of glass (strong enough to hold 14 elephants mind you)...now people are usually too pussy to stand on it, they end up standing on the carpet next to it...what they don't know is the carpet they're standing on is just covering the rest of the glass floor, I lol'd when they told me

    Winnipeg is sick man, come here (not directed to the beard, but you can come also, your cool)

    Its a dump of a city though for tourism.
    We have LOTS of skate parks, mostly known for the Skate Plaza


    This park is about a 20 minute skate from me

    It is not as dumpy as it seems

    Here is more Winnipeg skatepark info

    There's lots of wicked places to skate in Vancouver, bowls parks street whatever. Check out PD's hot shop. Those guys can give you all the goods on what's current. If you can try to make friends (maybee even on this site)
    who live there cause it's a city like any other major in the world. Plus it's a port city so there's a lot of junked up weirdos. I'd hate to see you go home in a pine box if you know what I mean. If you for some reason make it to Calgary
    look me up. We can skate and if your at least 18 We can check the night life
    Just a heads up, Canada has provincees and territories, not states

    If you goto winipeg dont skate with derrick he's a fag, hahahah. But if you do personally punch him in the face for me ! Also I live in canada, I doubt youll visit where im to but if you do then hit me up. Although im 15 (turning 16 april), not sure youd have loads of fun with a 16 year old :P.. Oh yeah forgot to mention I live on a island of the east coast of nova scotia called newfoundland. Its pretty small and we only have st.johns for a city. But its alll good ! Yeah states are to small for us canadians. We need provinces ! (Newfoundland & Labrador, Nova Scotica, Ontario, New Brunswick, Quebec, Alberta, British Comlumbia [If you smoke weed this is the place to be! If you dont I sugjest you try it because its probably the best stuff you will ever have, hahah], Manitoba, Saskatchewan. All them territories I wouldnt visit, there ****holes.)
    Which ones you plan on visiting?

    Remember if you're visiting Canada remember to bring a parka and one of those fuzzy ear flap hats. Also if your visiting now, bring an extra one hundred dollars,right now is beaver season, so the harpoon gun is definetly worth it. they're everywhere. Pretty good meat.

    Don't listen to this kid. He is either 1 stupid or 2 a ****. The Beaver is not only a national animal but is also protected. This means if you kill, harm, or mess with one in any way, you will be arrested, detained, extridited, and since Canada is part of the commonwealth when you get back to the UK they will probably revoke your pasport and you will never see foreign soil again. If you do want to go hunting or fishing while you're here check into it with the appropriate authorities.
