As a Canadian you will not need to be familiarized with the province as much as foreigners. However, it is worthwhile to look at the pages for world-wide visitors and American visitors, and Ontario's location relative to the U.S. Most of us really forget the true size of this province and its grandeur. Traveling to England once, I asked a farmer about the castle ruins in his backyard. His response was to say "Wot Castle?". Familiarity truly breeds contempt. Living next to this piece of history for his whole life had blinded him to its presence. The Great Lakes are one of the marvels of the world, and our closeness to them makes us forget how fortunate we are in Ontario to be the guardians of this precious spectacle.
