St. John not Nova Scotia

Just wanted to clarify as to not upset the Canadians....Saint John is in New Brunswick, not Nova Scotia. I can understand the error, it's all the same.

We witnessed a funny situation (funny to us anyway) on the cruise. We were waiting to get off the ship and explore Saint John when a family got back on the ship all flustered as to why their excursion wasn't waiting for them outside. They had booked an excursion on their own to go whale watching in St. John's.....not Saint John. I'm sure not very funny to them but we found it somewhat amusing. Canada requires homework, we don't like to make it easy.

Saint is always spelled out in Saint John and always abbreviated in St. John's.

That comes from dealing with hockey schedules and only having a small amount of space for writing...LOL!!!
