No offense, but it must seriously complicate any idea of feeling like an adult, and here you are at retirement age...

"Be home by midnight two hundred and eleven days from now, or you're in big trouble, Mister!!!!"

And they say choosing a sailboat is a compromise.

Just imagining being a Canadian trying to pick out a sailboat to go cruising for more than 212 days, I tell you, it boggles the mind!

My applogies if I sound like I'm laughing at you. I voted for Obama. Hmmmm. The hell with it. I'm going sailing where they can't find me.

No offense taken. I suppose it may well harken back to the days when government health coverage was 'free' for Ontario residents. Now that they've instituted the 'Ontario Health Premium', (a pittance, really, depending on one's tax bracket), one might be forgiven for wondering about the limit. It's basically a thing for 'residents'. I suppose if they didn't have the limit, people might be inclined to wander off and still expect to be covered.
