    Hello! I am not Canadian, but as I read your post I am watching Red Green, so maybe that counts a bit?
    Great to read your enthusiastic post. Sounds like you are going to have fun along the way, and by gosh, that is half of it....
    The other half is really liking people, and sounds like you have that too..
    you're a shoe in!
