    Does he take them to the flea market to do some shopping? And then do they go to the flea circus for entertainment? LOL!

    Right. Canadian English is part British. And we think everything’s tickety boo that way.

    Canadian English mainly follows British English for some stuff.
    Favour, and neighbour but socialize instead of socialise.
    We’re messed up, that’s for shizzle!

    Possible – or a disease they carry.
    I’ve heard of cattle dying from lack of blood from an unusually intensive mosquito attack.

    But the strip didn’t start until 1979, and not everyone was into flea collars anyway. Just sayin’…

    No – we would take an animal “to the Vet’s” – since the Vet is a person, and we mean “the Vet’s surgery”. A hospital is just a building, and no one person owns it, so we go to hospital as we would go to school.

    The only problem with your statement is that this strip is 29 years old. That puts it in 1983.

    When we moved to Canada, we were told either " south of the line" or “across the pond” constructions were acceptable, except a bank draft was always a cheque. This was strange because a check mark was usually a tick, and our kids got counted off for spelling if they didn’t use -our or -re endings.

    Yes, but we call them “the flea’s collars”

    I spent over a week on a vacation in Hamilton, Canada when I was 18. It was the closest I got to being in England. French fries are called chips there too. We had tea and for dessert we ate strawberries and cream. Canadians always end a question with: “Aye?” It was a great experience.

    @iced tea

    We only call them chips when we have fish and chips. Otherwise, it’s french fries, or just “fries”.

    And it’s spelled “eh” That is how we pronounce the question mark.
