Holy Shit NB is Green!
This may be my most controversial blog post to date; I think NB is the greenest (colour green) province in Canada! There I said it.
May I present exhibit A
I can’t even count how many different shades of green there are in this photo above. Is it all the rain we’ve gotten this summer? Is it because I lived in the desert for four years and I’m just now noticing all this lush greeness? Perhaps, or maybe we are just the best at growing green stuff?
Let’s go province by province, east to west and see how we compare. (Warning, this post may contain some trash talking)
Newfoundland is called the rock, sooooo, we obviously win! It does have lost of greenery, on top of the rocks, but I am calling it an easy win for NB, mmm we should probably move on before they tell us to screech off!
Nova Scotia is next, again it’s pretty rocky, and rocks aren’t green are they? Sure the Cabot Trail is beautiful… in the fall with all its multi colours, so they would win on that front, but I am calling NB as victorious on the multi greenery front.
Plus NS can’t win for multi colours and multi shades of green, it’s not allowed. I’ve asked the judges and they said no. Hey don’t hate the player NS, hate the game. Lol
Fun fact, did you know that the forests in Atlantic Canada and maybe a part of Quebec, like a tiny part, are the only forests in the world that have forests with a mix of both “conifère” & “caduc” trees, sorry I learned that in school, French school, pretty sure it translates to leafy and pine trees.
Let’s roll on across the Confederation Bridge to Prince Edward Island, or The Island, as we liked to call it.
Yes they have rolling green hills, but they also have potatoes and potatoes are brown and the soil that they grown in is red.
The rolling green hills aren’t enough to combat the red fields of brown potatoes, sorry. As quickly as we rolled on we are rolling back off, after paying the bridge fee to get off; well played PEI, well played!
Next, let’s take a look at our neighbors to the west, Quebec. Soooooo, ok they are also very green, but do they have pine trees that look like this?? ⬇️
Ha! I think not!! Ok, they may, but until someone from Quebec sends me a similar pic, NB is pulling ahead for the win. Merci Quebec it’s been right de la fun!
Ontario, the province that is so long it takes three days to drive through it. Ohhhh Ontario, you snooty little bitch, don’t think that we don’t know what you say about us and our cousins NS & PEI behind our backs. You are officially disqualified for unsportsmanlike conduct, sorry…not sorry!
Manitoba is up next and it’s the only province that I have not yet had the pleasure of visiting , but it’s on my list.
Since I have not been there, I googled it and here is what I found: “Manitoba is a Canadian province bordered by Ontario to the east and Saskatchewan to the west. It’s landscape of lakes and rivers, mountains, forests and prairies stretches from northern Arctic tundra to Hudson Bay (thinking it’s an actual bay and not the department store) in the east and southern farmlands.” Ok ugh, yuck, that sounds horrible!!! lol
Plus the nickname for Winnipeg is Winterpeg, so they probably don’t get more than a week or two of summer, moving on!!! Quickly before we freeze and can’t get our car started.
Saskatchewan, home of the wheat kings. This prairie province has more gold than green in their fields, so it’s our easiest win so far, which is good, because Alberta & British Columbia are up next.
Alberta, I don’t have any beef with you at all, you are beautiful and majestic, but you don’t have the whole “conifère” & “caduc” tree variety thing going for you, yes your pine tree forests are beautiful, blah, blah, bla, but ours are better.
British Columbia is for sure our biggest competition, but this summer has been a really hard on them. The Maritimes have gotten so much rain, we wish we could send some your way to help extinguish your fires. We are willing to call this round a tie if you are…for this summer only, until things cool down a bit for you, which we hope is soon.
Well there you have it, I think it’s pretty clear that NB, for the summer season 2021, is the province with the best and most varied shades of green. We would like to thank mother nature and let her know that it would be awesome to have at least a few more extra sunny weekends, sans rain, before the snow starts. We think we are green enough! You can stop now.
If you have a different opinion and want to discuss with the judges, scroll down and leave a comment, keep it green and clean, lol.
Thank you for reading,
