    Mormons live in Canada too, and I did know some (not very many) when I lived there. They are affiliated with the central LDS church/ headquarters in Salt Lake City and practice their faith accordingly.

    Some Mormons settled in Canada for the same reason the Romneys settled in Mexico: to escape US anti-polygamy laws. Canada has considerably fewer Mormons per capita than does the US, but they're there.

    We cannot mistake absolutism for principle, or substitute spectacle for politics, or treat name-calling as reasoned debate. -Pres. Obama, 1/21/13

      I had no idea... Canada seems so very levelheaded, I'd never have guessed. ;) Thought Mormons and the like would avoid it like the plague.

      God bless our tinfoil hearts.
