The Maritimes (home of Maritimers) is the least exciting and most wanting part of Canada. No jobs, unless you consider call centres. Long, cold, wet winters. Maritimers hate on Ontario, yet are typically Maple Leaf fans and sometimes Blue Jays fans. However, their rising unemployment population lives off Albertan and Ontarian tax dollars. There is a lot of history in the Maritimes but that doesn't excuse it's sucky present condition. Home of glass Pepsi bottles and the Confederation Bridge, which only exist for the sake of PEI's economy. Maritimers claim to be the friendliest part of the country but it is no different than any other region. There are friendly people and jerk people. A lot of kids here play hockey, but very few ever make the NHL, and even fewer are good. The CFL has considered putting a team in Moncton or Halifax then realize there aren't enough people that can afford to buy a ticket to one game, or that there aren't enough people to support a team at all. Home of Saint John which is the armpit of Canada and the city of wannabe gangster kids. Many parts of this strange region are full of racist inbred rednecks who only bitch about how the rest of the country has forgotten them, which is mostly true, except for when it comes to paving their roads and keeping their economy afloat. Many companies and stores in the Maritimes have the term "Atlantic" in front of their name (like Atlantic Superstore) as if they have to distinguish themselves from the rest of Canada. Any time you hear a Canadian with a stereotypical, hick Canadian accent, they are likely from the Maritimes. Many French people who live here speak a strange dialect of English-French instead of sticking to just one language. Marimers generally have an inferiority complex, complain that Ontario stole all their jobs, and if they have any ambition whatsoever, move west.
Nova Scotian: I'm a proud Nova Scotian! Ontario sucks! Go Leafs!
New Brunswickan: Those oil-rich Albertans and cocky Ontarians are bastards! Where's my unemployment cheque?
Islander: Plastic Pepsi bottles suck ass! Woohoo! I just got a job at the glass bottle factory.
Person 1: Hey, I'm going to the Maritimes for my vacaction!
Person 2: Now why the hell would you do that? Anything east of Ontario sucks donkey balls man.
1. The collective name for the Canadian Provinces of Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick.
2.Where many of the inter-provincial Canadian immigrants are from.
3.A quiet, affordable, reasonably safe and naturally beautiful (if not boring) place to have a home and raise a family or take a vacation.
1. Want a summer full of Lobster and beaches but light on the wallet? Head on down to the Maritimes.
2.I saw alot of people from the maritimes when I went to Calgary for that job interview.
3.If you want a quiet life near an ocean where you don't have to pay 3000$ a month for a basement apartment and worry about mountain lions eating you on the way to your car, do we have the place for you.
I agree with the other guy, Ryan, who shit all over this region! Because it IS a piece of shit place to live! Friendly people - my ass. I have lived successfully in every major city in Canada. Why the hell did I feel it necessary to come out east then? Fuck knows! The biggest mistake I ever made.
The maritimes breed are just a bunch of sorry-ass whiners and complainers out here - and some who even think they're better than everyone else HA! now if that isn't a Laugh Out Loud notion, nothing is.
