STRANGE QUESTION

This forum is for all the jumbled up info about Canada. We've asked that, on the info forums, you please post on the relevant forums, start new threads for new topics, and please keep on topic. Otherwise the info is too hard too find for those coming after, and the already overworked Mods end up having to repeatedly answer the same questions. (If your posting is locked in here, please feel free to post again in the appropriate place.)

Hi Tammy.
If I understand your grammar and question correctly you are asking about insects and hurtful animals in BC. You mention the bears, there are also coyotes, mountain lions (Cougars) elk, moose, bob cats, lynx etc. For spiders we have black widows, not usually very poisonous, hobo spiders, nasty bite-disolves muscle tissue very quickly, for snakes we only have the rattlesnake in the poisonous group and this far north they are only in specific areas with a very weak venom. We have hornets (wasps) and bees and many biting insects such as blackfly, mosquitoes and gnats (no-see-ums). All in all it's a safe place to live.

Tammy, in Canada, you stab some one , you go to jail, I suggest you take a course in Anger Management.

The jail is full of Spiders, Big Ones.

I've shifted this into the Jumble Sale because, other than deleting it, I didn't know what else to do - and I haven't got time to edit it.

This posting breaks several of our rules, not least that it was posted in the wrong place - a board which is about the practicalities of moving to Canada. (Maybe I should go and change the description of the board to make it clearer.) But SHOUTING and postings which are barely in understandable English aren't very useful here.
