Default my "I hate Edmonton" thread

This city and possibly, country, sucks. I have never had it so bad trying to find parts for my truck or car. I have lived here for 12 years after living in the states for the previous 40. I have built numerous hot rods and 4x4's while in the states. I called around today to every 4x4 shop in the city for a pair of Belltech 6400 shackles. I found one pair that are 300 miles away and will not see them til Thursday. This is the way it is here. I got a price of 600.00 for 4 Cragar soft 8 knock-offs (Unique Wheels). I, one day, will live in the states again. THIS SO SUCKS!!!!!

yes we dont pay anything, therefore its free.
yes most automotive parts are more expensive and take longer to get here because they come from the states, i dont think its a reason to bash our country, it was your choice to move here if you dont like it because you cant get the parts you want right now, and not wait a couple days like everyone else, then move back

Hey at least AB has lower tax, I pay 12% on everything here. One of the reasons I make trips to Edmonton about 4 times a year. And PG is horrible for finding anything in town, most stuff is overnighted from Edmonton or Kelowna.
I haven't had issues with healthcare, although it did take my sister almost a year to get her knee surgery done.
Oh and I'm around the 40% income tax bracket... it sucks.

Hey Darkstar....I am not bashing the country other than the availability of stuff...I didn't say shit about healthcare or even the fact that I have been bashed over and over again about being American. I have lived in Canada for 12 years and like it just as much as the states. Even though for the most part Canadians can't stand Americans, they love to go to the states on vacation and they love to buy product from the states. I just want the availability of stuff I need for my truck and I don't need another pinhead Canadian to not understand what I am venting about and tell me to go back to the states.

I wish we would close the northern border....It's not so much that I hate Canadians, I just hate how you fuckers drive. Mostly because you CAN'T!
