Isn't that south of the 49th parallel?

So which border are we talking about (or aboot)?spinning smiley sticking its tongue out
vancouver is just a bit north of the 49th. we moved from vancouver to vancouver island 4 years ago and we are south of the 49th. the southernmost point of canada is not far from our house. kinda like that place down in the keys in florida being the southernmost point of the continental US. (i was wrong about this)
Victoria is the capital of BC and it's on the island and is also south of the 49th.

I think that my house is a lot closer to the southern point of Canada than yours. About 160 mi. for me and probably 2500 mi.for you.
Pelee Island in Lake Erie is indeed the most southerly point in Canada being well below the 45th parallel. Even south eastern Nova Scotia is significantly further south than anywhere in B.C.

i am not usually one to repeat supposed "facts" without verifying them or at least giving them a bit of thought. my wife was on a boat and they passed by this little island with a marker on it and she told me the guide said that it was the southernmost point. maybe it was the southernmost point of BC? in any case, what i said was totally incorrect and i feel foolish for saying it. thank you guys for correcting me. next time i'll look at a map first.

now, which is farther south, rome or barcelona? smiling smiley

I believe it is Barcelona further south than Rome but only by the thinnest crust of a chorizo pizza.

Maybe some geographical confusion here. Although the 49th parallel does form a large part of the Canada / US border, quite a bit of the eastern border is well below the 49th parallel. The southern tip of Ontario is actually located at the same latitude as Northern California.

So yes, it is the Canada / US border that we're talking about.

You wouldn't believe how many Detroit snowbirds we get every Winter.
Just placed my order for a festive orange 10th anniversary hat! Happy to help out with a worthy cause during these difficult times. Thanks Pedro. This one is headed to the Montreal area at 45º 27' 35" N.

If we keep this up, we'll have these PBX hats all over Canada. We already have 1/4 of the provinces covered.
... 70 more hats ready to ship from 28º 11' 0.8" N, enough to send one to every Province in Canada and every State in the USA and have a few left!
Happy Boxstering,

one of these unique hats would make a great Christmas gift, it just might still make it in time, if ordered today.
