Comments26/11/2016 #17 Donald GrandyGreat post @Don Kerr. As you are aware we Canucks are home to the busiest highway in the world i.e. 401. According to stats, 1m vehicles per day. Apparently a very annal Canadian sat on the side of the 401and counted until the puck dropped at the Air Canada Centre or he had to go to the bathroom and didn't want to urinate on the 401. Polite eh? Maybe we can include a beBee sign up as part of the 407 toll? Then they can find like minded beBees who hate the toll? In the meantime, I will do my part to introduce beBee to SWO.

And I never read anything about statistical analysis or rocket science because those are way beyond me. But because you wrote it, I thought it would be worth it. It was. I laughed all the way through!
I am surprised to learn of all the people and things that came out of Canada; you opened my eyes on those! And with winter coming, what better time for your fellow Canuckians (???) to turn to the pleasures of being warm inside and making a few more social media noises?23/11/2016 #10 David B. GrinbergI concur with you Don that beBee is fortunate to have so many talented Canadians on this budding social platform. In fact, Canadian talent might be over represented based on a statistical analysis based on proportionality of the respective populations.
Therefore, I think it should be expected that beBee will have more total users in the USA compared to Canada based on sheer numbers alone. To wit: the U.S. population is about 325 million compared to about 36 million for our northern neighbor. Thus, your savvy statistical analysis helps put the pending North American swarm into greater perspective. Thanks for the good buzz!23/11/2016 #8 Phil Friedman@Don Kerr, nice piece, indeed. I suggest that the number of Canadian writers on beBee is disproportionately high, while the number of Canadian users is, as you've pointed out, disproportionately low. Why?
My bet is that the disparity is due to the fact the Canadian writer's community is historically very strong, and that Canadian writers grow and evolve in an environment that values freedom of expression and open exchange very highly. (Anyone who doubts that should watch a couple of installments of "Today in the House of Commons" or some such news program.) And that Canadian writers have found beBee to be a congenial platform for their activities. But that Canadian readers don't find the bulk of what's on the general feed inviting, precisely because it is too emotional and soft, and lacks the edgy humor and verbal give and take that Canadians genuinely love.
This is obviously IMO, based on my 15 years living and working in Canada. And I stand to be corrected by you, Jim Murray, Kevin Pashuk, Paul "Pablo" Croubalian, Nicole Chardenet, Graham Edwards, Renée Cormier, or other Canadians on beBee. Cheers!
