A reader commented on the Expat Report Culture Shock in Toronto, Canada

Wow. I never considered dandelions on my lawn (and the social pressure to eradicate them) to be a 'fairly significant culture shock' occurance. Eating dog meat from a street vendor or communal, open air toilets or not being allowed to drive because I am a woman: from a western's perspective - that is what I would call culture shock. But dandelions on a lawn.... where did you come from? Please, I have to know!

they are not a flower but considered a weed. They are not at all pretty and if u keep them you will be viewed as neglectful and trashy property. You can bring your front value down since they are such a huge menace. I know it is so fickle us Ontarians and our snotty property front view but it can be something to be proud of as well. We love our lawns and landscaping.
