    Do any of you live in or near Cobourg because I wondered because I work for a firm called Weetabix and they have a Weetabix in Cobourg.

    Cobourg is a small town but its popular in the summer months... (from the end of may to the end of August)

    Quaint little town very safe for young kids but quite boring for teens unless they drive

    because its right at the lake (Lake Ontario) they can get quite a bit of lake affect snow

    its about 90 minutes from the Pearson International Airport and about the same from down town Toronto

    population is about 18,500

    what do you mean " if anyone works there"?.. I dont know where the factory is I was about 8 when I left and to be honest its not like the factory is a tourist destination

    If you like the outdoors even in the cold then you will like it there is fishing year round.. sledding in the winter... ect...

    Is this the information you were looking for?

    It's a bout a 2 hr drive from my house [​IMG]

    I've never stopped there, but have drove by the exits...

    Ontario is nice, lots of wide open spaces close by... You'll find the people nice, (I"m biased of course)

    It's on the 401, witch is one of the big highways round here.

    That's all I know

    and since you a BYC'ner if you ever need a chicken conection here, I'll help ya out [​IMG]
