Default Wow does topps hate canada. This is wrong and unreal

I don't know what to think of this. They teach math in Canada right. I'm so confused I do know the answer and would be glad share it with you. Unreal Please read the No Purchase Necessary section.
Topps must not like Canada.

Yeah it's pretty wrong. I guess Topps is under the impression Canadians are mentally inferior.

Oh well. At least they make up for it with decent products. I'd rather be treated like an idiot and get solid value out of my boxes than be treated like an average person and get crap out of my boxes.

And I wouldn't say Topps hates Canada. They've shipped some pretty solid boxes to my LCS (including one bowman draft box opened by me with a superfractor, a blue auto, and an Aflac auto in it!) .

And we're the ones called idiots

If it is a law it's not one I'm familiar with. You never know though, this country has some wild and ridiculous laws that make absolutely no sense. This may be one of them.

I'm not sure I understand your second statement please explain. But I do agree with your first comment. Topps should not feel that way about Canada. Ive been there is a very nice please. Anjou Quebec( The Heart of Canada) was one of the nicest place I have ever been.

What I was implying was that Topps may hate Canada, but they put out very good products (see Draft, Tier One, Bowman) whereas Panini, who seems to have no hatred towards Canada, puts out god awful products. That's all!

Wait, you're saying you liked Quebec? How is that possible?! Having visited Quebec at least 100 times a year and having worked there for 6 years of my life (thankfully I got out four years ago) I can tell you it isn't the nicest place on earth.

It is a law. Can't be a lottery or raffle. Must be tied to some test of "skill". I assure you Topps isn't wasting time on CANADA math 101 for fun.

Yeah, if you stay in the Montreal area/Ontario border area it's really a nice province. Most cities in those areas seem to have a strong English contingent and are tolerant of English folk. It's once you get into the thick of Quebec (east of Drumondville, if you know where that is) is when it gets bad. I've had absolutely horrible experiences in those places (including being refused entry into a hotel about an hour out of Quebec City because of my spoken language) and have hated "La Belle Provonce", at least that part of it, for the majority of my life.

Le Quebec est une belle province et la plupart des gens sont fiers de parler francais car il y a de plus en plus d'anglophone dans la région de Montreal et petit a petit nous sommes en train de perdre notre langue nationale.Si vous allez dans le coin de la ville de Quebec vous allez avoir beaucoup plus de difficulté a vous faire comprendre et peut-etre que certaine personne n'aimerons pas le fais que vous etes anglophone mais les chances sont tres mince.La plupart des gens au Quebec parlent ou comprennent l'anglais donc vous n'aurez aucun probleme a communiquer.Montreal est rendu beaucoup plus anglophone que francophone mais le reste du Quebec est francophone.

That was my french class for today guys !

I don't know man. I found that east of Drummondville seemed very tolerant, but east of there it gets very hostile for English-speaking visitors. Maybe I've just had negative experiences in central Quebec, because around the eastern border is very nice as well.

Love speaking French here btw. I might start doing that more often.

Merci d'avoir parles en francais sur cête cite-web. J'aime beaucoup quand les autres personnes ne comprends pas que nous dire.

I haven't written in French for about 5 years now, so it's a little rusty! I'm much better speaking French!

I've always thought that Canada is sort of like the US's little brother. Though sometimes we don't get along, and although we're bigger, and everyone likes us more, and we burned down their leaders house, we'll, umm.... What was I trying to say? Something about us kicking their ass in hockey?
