The exhibition game thread and the discussion about getting a Raptors game out to Alberta fans made me want to take a survey. Where is everyone from in here?

I'm putting up a poll, but (if you don't mind) tell us what city, province or country.

I'm in Vancouver, BC.

Alberta should stick to being fans of the Flames and Oilers, or w.e. other CFL or NHL team they have...(do they really have a big basketball fan base?)

But it would be really nice to get a game out in Montreal, Quebec City, Van., or even out in Halifax( I know they have a pretty big basketball fan base out there) Even nicer would be to get another NBA organization in Canada.

I know we have at least one more province covered. MaxGraham moved to Montreal last year. That only leaves NB, SASK and the two territories.
