Default Description for the Canadian section

I noticed there is no description for the Canadian section. Often Canadian code questions are posted in other threads. Maybe adding a description for the Canadian section that includes “Canadian code” will help?

Eg. For topics specific to Canada including the Canadian Electrical Code.

I followed the same concept as the UK forum section.

Did you see Cricket's response?

So... donate a description that she can cut and paste. That will get things started.

You could have a poll but I see no way to keep out the US guys. They will be all over it.

They constantly snoop the Canadian site to get back at @99cents, who is constantly driving them crazy cause he doesn't like Trump.

I like Trump.

Not if a CEC question is in the NEC or General forum.

But we have so many more Sno-tricians than Euro-tricians that they could use a little feeling of importance or is that impotence?

There is not a good answer. While I think focusing on the CEC related content is important, there is so much that could be cross posted in any number of sub-forums.

What happens is that the Canadian Forum gets "plugged up" <see what I did there @HackWork> with a bunch of other items that could go into controversial, off-topic or any other sub-forum...

Personally I would like to clean up the Canadian Forum to code specific and leave the weather, politics and best screwdriver discussion in the other sub-forums.

Cheers
John
