To start things off, we here at TheLeafsNation.com would like to wish all of our Canadian readers (aka, most of our readers) a Happy Thanksgiving. We're very thankful for all the time you've invested into reading our content and giving your feedback. Even when it's not positive, it's appreciated, and for the most part it happens to be positive. We look forward to becoming even better as time progresses, and it couldn't be done without all of your support. If you don't celebrate Thanksgiving, we hope your day off was awesome, at least. We're also thankful for all of these questions you asked - some of them are going to be answered below!
