A Conspiracy

I suspect that Maine is secretly a part of Canada. The evidence:

1. Canadian currency is accepted at toll boths.
2. Some highway signs give distances in miles and kilometers.
3. All ATMs offer instructions in French.
4. Radio stations give the current Canadian dollar exchange rate along with the traffic and weather.
5. My university health benefits are suspiciously good. Are we heading towards socialized medicine, perhaps?

It's probably going to be just as cold as Canada too. Do you need a pair of Mel's tights? I may be willing to part with the green. Not the yellow though.

Does your local Burger King sell Poutine? And do you have Tim Horton's? If the answer is no to either of these questions, you're not fully Canadianized yet.

alea - Actually, yes and yes. (Well, maybe not Burger King, but you can get it around here, I'm told.) Booyah, eh?

Also,

6. My boss says "eh," even though she's from upstate New York.
7. There is a significant amount of Canadian vowel raising.
