I don't know how things are in Ottawa, but the Montreal Burners are a fun bunch. On Facebook, find them by looking for "Brûleurs de Montréal Burners." They have access to resources like shipment of cargo, carpooling, and so on, in both official languages.

You can ask for almost anything. Be as specific or as general as you like. For example, you could ask for: - Musi...
