chinese from mainland only immigrate to canada not long time ago right? I speak Cantonese ( Ma ma dei.).But still, I don't feel madarine culture is different to Cantonese somehow. I don't think we should have difficulties to interact well with HK/ Cantonese people, just same as with other many nations. After all, toronto might be the most multi-cultural city. :-)
Just feel strong needs of speaking madarine, eating good chinese food, and killing time with Chinese folks......Is it called "Qing(1) Qing(3)"
