    Anyway, welcome.
    By "Kanata" I just meant "Canada." So, I'm from: Toronto, Canada.

    Yay! Canadian culture:

    In 1535, two Indian Youths told Jacques Cartier about the route to "kanata." They were referring to the village of Stadacona; "kanata" was simply the Huron-Iroquois word for "village" or "settlement." But for want of another name, Cartier used "Canada" to refer not only to Stadacona (the site of present day Quebec City), but also to the entire area subject to its chief, Donnacona. The name was soon applied to a much larger area: maps in 1547 designated everything north of the St. Lawrence River as "Canada." - Origin of the Name - Canada

    Thaanks for the welcome!
