Plants can’t be franchised! Canada part 2 of 2

Canada and the U.S., part 1 of 2

Niagara Falls, it turns out, is WAY cooler on the Canada side. The U.S. has spent more on its view of the falls, and even puts people on a ferry to go closer to it. But on the Canada side, you’re really close to the top of the falls. Also. They have black squirrels in […]
