The reason I think Canada should have it's own forum is because the United states is much bigger than Canada and the US members kind of "drown" the Canadian members out of the picture.

Yeah. Its quite frankly offensive that Canada is lumped in with the US. I don't want to be mistaken for a Canadian.

Can you explain to me how the US members "drown" the Canadian members out of the picture? I didn't realize that life-extension methods was based on country of residence.

After thinking about it a bit I think I could go for either.

I like how lumping USA and Canada together seems like it could take the edge off of that mentality where people think that the USA thinks its the top dog. By lumping USA with Canada it makes the USA look like more of a team player, which it is.

IMO, the only thing useful to talk about in a Canadian forum would be restrictions on supplements that US people don't have to suffer with (why oh why is DHEA treated the same as Cocaine?), possible inavailability of certain medicines or medical procedures (yay for some insulin pumps just not being available), and local chapters.

If someone wants to talk about that stuff, then its useful!

A single north america forum is enough, IMHO, we don't want to have an excessive number of forums with little activity.

no. I was being sarcastic. hence the :)

having separate US and canadian forms is silly in my opinion. The two combined have hardly any activity. Country of nationality should not be a dividing factor, but broad geographic regions (are we really that tribalistic?). A "North America" forum would be fine, further subdivisions should be based on activity.
