On the totally banal topic of dinner times...

I think that our globalized + PC era has led to a widely accepted mantra that, at least when it comes to big cities, everything everywhere is basically equivalent to everything else, everywhere else.

It becomes especially acute when people compare large Canadian cities, or so it seems.

But in the era of Inuit kids dancing to Gangnam Style K-pop, there are still major differences all over the place. Not everything everywhere is equivalent. In some cases it's better, in some it's worse and in many it's really neither, but just different.

What's ironic about the "civic equivalency" claims on a forum such as this one is that an extremely high percentage of SSP forumers could never accept the idea that a sophisticated and satisfying lifestyle could fairly easily be lived in many of Canada's smaller cities.
Ah ben là!
