I like to say that I live on the West Coast, but really I live three blocks from the salt water, so not quite.
If you live only three blocks from the beach you are on the coast.

Great White North (Eastern side currently)
In the USA the Mississippi River is generally accepted as the point between east and west. Not sure what that point would be for Canada. When I say something is in the west it means west of the Mississippi no necessarily on the coast.
The east-west dividing point for Canada is 96 degrees 48 minutes 35 seconds (west longitude). It's just a little bit (29 km) southeast of the centre of Winnipeg, but Winnipeg is close enough.

Or, as our buddy Gord Downie says, at the hundredth Meridian...

Next, is Quebec still part of Canada?
These days, unless some oil pipelines start getting built, it is more likely that Alberta will leave Canada, not Quebec.

OK, Alberta leaving Canada won't really happen, but opting out of some National programs as Quebec has already done, might happen.

if we told you where we lived most of you wouldn't know where it was anyway.
