Preferably Alberta. 

I think the title says it all.

    People actually live in Alberta? :P

    I think we've established that John is too poor to enter Canada, though.
    Ladies and gentlemen, do not be alarmed. Please, remain perfectly still

    Get him to Seattle and I'll go and pick him up and bring him to Vancouver. ^_^ He'll pass the border for sure if he's with a fellow Canadian...

    I think he should come to Windsor, after all it is the place where he couldn't cross in the first place. I think he should come to Windsor to prove a point and of course have a Nerdfighter meetup in Windsor! :D

    YES. Windsor. yes. I mean on their channel they have a view of Windsor from Detroit so it only seems fitting they get a view of Detroit from Windsor.

    For the record, John has been to Canada... there was a Vancouver stop in the January 2012 Tour de Nerdfighting, and he was *in* Canada (Waterloo) when he tells the insufficient funds story.

    But I am in full agreement that a proper Canadian tour (with both brothers) is long overdue.

    I mean, vancouver is in canada but it's pretty far from all the other canadian places. Toronto/Montreal a lot of people can at least drive or take a bus or something!

    How do you think us Vancouverites feel when all kinds of things happen in Toronto? Like we're very far away. It's only fair you guys get to feel that way from time to time too.

    That doesn't mean it's impossible for him to come to Canada, though. It just means he's hassled at the border.

    As far as I understand, the majority of John's travels (especially both Tours de Nerdfighting with Hank) are funded by his pubishers in support of his books. So probably the best way to get John to come north is not to bug him, but instead to let his publishers, bookstores, libraries, schools, etc know there is demand for an event?

    Not to mention all the prairie folks (of which I'm a former one... that was awkward wording) who are very far away from both Toronto and Vancouver and get to feel neglected all the time.

    There should be a John Green's Insufficient Funds Fund.
    I love you in the least alarming way possible.

    I agree.  I hope one day they'll be able to do a good Canadian tour so that Nerdfighters from all over the country can go meet them.

    Yes! He should cross the border at Seattle and then do an BC-Alberta tour!

    Lets get a petition going and see how many Canadians we can get together showing that an actual trip to Canada is worth it? we can get something set up to show where all the nerdfighters are located. Id be willing to drive 4 hours or so to go to a gathering!
