So many numbers and they tell us some things about ourselves here in the best country in the world.  The latest census figures are out. 

We're spending more time in school, working later in life and spending more time in traffic to do it.

More than half of Canada's working population, ages 25 to 64, have degrees or diplomas from a college or university.

We're working longer.  About 20% of seniors over age 65 are in the workforce in Canada.  That's double the rate from 20 years ago.

The numbers also show we're spending more time traveling to get to our jobs with the average commute up to 26 minutes.

I'll bet you have family and friends in the big city who wonder why you're living in Moose Jaw.  You see, they have time to wonder about us...in their cars while they're trying to weave their way through traffic to get to work and back.
