I have verizon service no problem with using my I phone, I had limited coverage in Yukon< i just up. dated my plan to unlimited data for trip tp Alaska. Data was limited to .5 gigs a day. My wife flip phone would work in Canada. I thought Canada was awesome. Alaska seem trashy to me I'm glad I went but would never go back.

We were there in August. and i'm like you Canada was scenic and almost all the towns we were in were nice and clean. the hiways were clean much more so than Alaska. Alaska just seamed to be run down every were you looked. I was wondering how Canada keeps there hiways so clean. they don't have a bottle refund like we do here in Oregon, that helps in keeping them off the sides of the road. I wasn't impressed with Alaska.

Actually several of the provinces do have bottle\can return programs. In Alberta ours has been extended to all juice and milk containers as well. Also in Ab one day is set aside in the spring where youth groups can clean a section of highway as a fund raiser. Adult individuals or groups can also contract to clean a section.
In Ab we also use strong winds to blow items into other provinces or countries.[emoticon] I never did find my Thule car topper which blew off on highway 22 last winter!!

In British Columbia like Alberta we have extensive container reclying. Around where we live there are people that are less fortunate, that walk the edges of the roads and hwys picking up items that they can cash in for money every day.
This is a big contributor too the nice looking roads sides you see when you travel though parts of Canada.
