    I'm thinking it is because gay marriage is legal there.

    The original HGTV is an american station owned by Scripps Networks Interactive. HGTV Canada was formed later as a joint venture between CW Media and Scripps.
    Does it smoke under load or no?

    EDIT: No that isn't a jizz joke.

    I spend tonnes of time and money each year on/in the gardens. Will spend A LOT more this year. Something soothing about working around in the gardens.

    Or maybe speaking for an entire country vs. speaking for yourself is proving difficult? I represent myself and my family with my words.

    Yeah, they are probably also a pedophile.

    I mean, I thought RC was all about stereotypes as a lifestyle? Assimilate into your surroundings, yo!

    I'm not wondering why they wouldn't, I'm wondering why they ARE. So I guess the grants are the reason...

    I was responding to the question about HGTV, had really nothing to do with me or my family. So yeah, I was speaking in terms of the country. Your foreclosure rate > our foreclosure rate. More % of people here seem to have money to invest in their properties during this lovely recession, so it makes sense HGTV would base a lot of shows out of Canada.

    I could be wrong but it's my response and I am sticking to it.

    The difference in home ownership rates between Canada and the US is 2%, which any mathematician can tell you could easily be chalked up to a statistical anomaly. Pedestal pushing avoided. Refocus your attack or move on plz.

    I choose to move on simply for the fact I don't actually care who's right, it was my response to a question and I am over it. Nothing changes the fact that US or Canada (or International) based shows on HGTV are the shizzle, my favourite channel.
