"No, there is no Vibe in Canada... yet. It supposed to be coming though. When it does we plan on upgrading and that will cost us $99.00 CAD. By the time you move to our wonderful country, it should be available. By the way, where are you moving too?"
I just accepted your friend request from Aug. I haven't been on this site for awhile! Your son is very handsome. Hope things are going well for you.
