Ask Slashdot: Mobile Data In Canada For a US Citizen?

jmd_akbar Re:China & Mobile Data Roaming (270 comments)

Honestly, I think you really need to put off Google maps.. I know there is a route from LA to Beijing, with a step mentioning kayaking across the Pacific, and seeing that you can't still see that some country starting with C and ending with A, you really are some thing exceptional, my friend!!

Please notice, it is CANADA not China..

And you can ask your ophthalmologist for some prescription to get you some nice spectacles. You really seem to need those!!!
