You should drive up into Canada from Washington on I-5. As you near the border, the skyline is dominated by the gold domes of mosques - dozens of them. When you get into Vancouver and begin walking around downtown, you have been magically transported to the middle east (yes, I've been there plenty too) - with the only difference being that the architecture is western and the signs aren't in Arabic. If you are white in Vancouver, you're a minority for sure.
I am far more comfortable these days in the Asian communities up north than in the rest of New Tehran, thank you.
Even the mounties have had to alter their dress code for uniforms - turbans are now allowed as headgear. No Muslim influence you say? Bull$hit.

Since when did "turbans", worn by Sikhs, have anything to do with Islam?
