      That sounds so alien.
      It’s like saying that you also buy cornflakes ‘by the yard’. 🙂

        Canada’s on the metric system.

        • Drunk_by_Noon

          Why?
          Might as well just declare yourself communistic devil worshipers.
          Really, it’s no different.

          • “I love visiting Canada, but I’m always confused by what
            measurements to use when I’m there. The street signs are in metric, but heights and weights are still in imperial units, yet the temperature’s in Celsius, but food’s served by the gram and millilitre, except sometimes when it’s by the ounce or pound…How do you guys keep track of this stuff? Sincerely, Muddled Measurements in Montana”

            “Dear Muddled Measurements in Montana…
            A wise man once said that ‘the metric system is the tool of the devil – my car gets forty rods to the hogshead, and that’s the way I likes it.’ Well, that sentiment was shared by an overwhelming number of Canadians in the 1970s, when the metric system was first introduced by a hippie Prime Minister to a suspicious public, only for the government Metric Commission to be killed off by a diehard Conservative government, leaving us with a half-converted country that can flip-flop between metric and imperial measurements four times in the same sentence.”

            Pierre Trudeau started that mess
            metric system is better but not when next to the US that does not use it

            And… well.. ya know.. HUGE SWATHS of the country were surveyed and drawn up in miles. Roads with intersections every mile, a section is a one mile block..nobody knows what a fucking hectare is.. everything is acres. Oh and hey, how much do you weigh? And how tall are you? Oh right.. pounds, feet and inches.

        The Amish in PA sell sweet milk in bags. It’s unpasteurized and there’s a huge fight with the government about it.

        • mauser 98

          some have been arrested there and in Ontario for same

      I remember when they were in glass jugs… you didn’t need weights back then.. you just had to go to the grocery store.

      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Plus, you felt classier while drinking milk out of a glass bottle than you ever did from the carton.

        • canminuteman

          Don’t try drinking it out of a bag if you are accident prone.

          • Reader

            Don’t try carrying it in a glass bottle if you don’t have a decent sense of balance.

            Where you get your milk is important.

          • Kathy Prendergast

            I seem to have a vague memory, the brief time milk in bags was available in my province, of kids snipping small holes in the top corner of the bag and squirting the milk at each other, or throwing the backs down on the sidewalk to make them “explode”, although my mother would have skinned any of us alive if we had wasted precious milk that way.

  • I do not buy milk in a bag.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      If God wanted milk to come in a bag, he would not have made cows, gallon plastic jugs, or half-gallon cartons.

      • Xavier

        If God had wanted milk to come from a bag he would have designed bag-like structures into the human body.

      • You people think you’re so hot because you put the first man on the moon, but we supplied the astronauts with our used milk bags to pee in. Plus we put a big long penis on the space shuttle — it looked so “girly-man” before that.

        • Drunk_by_Noon

          Yeah, that prehensile shuttle penis you made for us was pretty sweet!

          I have a question. How did that even happen?
          We built a space shuttle but threw up our hands at the control arm design and only Canadian ingenuity could save the American space program, and then we let you put a Canadian flag on the damn thing?
          How the hell did you negotiate that deal?
          We don’t fly ANYONE else’s flag on our shit.
          Ever.
          We are kinda crazy like that, but Canada pulls that one off without riots in American streets.
          Weird, man.

          • Reader

            It’s because we are a very patient people, except the newcomers coming from the Middle East.

            Did you ever watch the speed of the CanadaArm?

            So when Prime Minister Trudeau, and his environmentalist chief advisor Gerald Butts makes anti-business econonmic suggestions they will drive Canada into a depression over the next four years. But we will put up with it because we know the silver-spoon man-child will eventually get his.

            Then in 2019 we will reelect Trudeau because we know the longer he stays in power the greater his arrogance and his party will grow and we want to see how high and mighty he becomes before he falls and how low.

            Then before the 2023 election Trudeau will likely declare he is the Sheik of Canada under the New World Caliphate he will support, cancel elections and declare Sharia Law now rules the Sheikdom of Canada.

            Eventually we will see Trudeau fade away with Early Onset Inanity where even the CBC won’t listen to him after he has raised their yearly government funding to $100 billion a year. Of course by then a loaf of bread will cost $200.

            With the disappearance of Trudeau we will quietly wish our Sharia overlords would leave so we won’t have to pay the Jizya but by then 60% of our population will be foreign born.

            Finally all the people running Canada from West Asia, Middle Eastern and North Africa will want to leave as the hockey stick theory of Global Warming is finally discredited even with the CBC as the next Ice Age is well established and only Windsor is not ice-covered all year round.

            I think because all our Avro Arrow engineers went to NASA. They built a very cool fighter jet then scrapped it for politics.

            What, they are no longer saying that the CIA killed it because it was too good?
            Oh well.

            Hey, I’ve probably been here way too long so I’ll bid you all goodbye.

            I’ve heard all the rumours but it probably was human stupidity.

            The most realistic answer I heard was that it was cut to help fund farm subsidies by a PM soon facing elections.
            That story just doesn’t tell as well as the evil Americans did it in.

  • lolwut?

    Bagged milk is an eastern Canada thing.

    • truepeers

      We had it in BC back in the 80s

      • lolwut?

        I know but it wasn’t very popular so they ditched it. All the western cities did.

        Supposedly the grocery store at Kingsgate mall has it occasionally but I’ve never seen it there.

  • El Martyachi

    … closest I’ve gotten is boxed wine.

    Appalling to see the flag desecrated that way.

    Like most families back in the 70s we got milk delivered every few days when I was growing up in Saskatchewan; usually it came in half-gallon (now called 2 litre) cartons) but I remember a brief time when our milk service switched over to bags, for some reason; I was a teenager at the time and like many teenagers was a voracious milk drinker (I can’t stand the stuff now) as were my three sisters and my parents always had milk in their tea or coffee, so as a milk-drinking family of six we didn’t find them very convenient. You put the bag in a plastic holder, snipped off the top and poured it out like from a jug but what I remember is that milk was constantly getting spilled because whoever did the snipping would snip too much off the top, making the milk come out too fast, or the bag would fall out of the holder, or we would empty a whole bag before everyone had enough milk so would have to go to the fridge and get another one. They were not any more well-received by other Saskatchewan customers and I think the service got rid of them eventually or brought back the option of milk in cartons.
