What makes Drupal a better CMS if the learning curve is steeper over Wordpress? Using Wordpress or another open source CMS such as Joomla or Magento you still "own the bricks".  Do not all offer similar functionality and options?


For an average small business owner, wouldn't the easier CMS be better to use?  Thinking for someone who wants to add/update content & pictures, add a promotion to website. Interested to hear your thoughts.

@sherrierohde @econwriter5 @scottnobleNS @kellensteffen I believe location has something to do with it. There are a lot of strong ties between New England & Atlantic Canada. Boston was the first major city to send aid to Halifax after the Halifax Explosion in 1917. The province of Nova Scotia sends a hand selected Christmas tree to Boston now each year in remembrance of that aid. 

I think that if one digs deeper into our roots, especially here on the east coast, the bonds between the people of our countries are stronger than the media lets on.

I would have to disagree with the comment that "Today is just another day on the calendar...". It is not, we have experienced terrorism in our country, in the late 60's & early 70's the FLQ terrorised the province of Quebec with bombings, murders & kidnappings. 

Many communities, especially here on the East Coast were touched by the events of 9/11. Halifax International Airport and other airports on the east coast were places of refuge for 1000's of stranded American travellers when flights were grounded. Many of these people were welcomed into our homes, offered shelter & the horror of those events shared. Canadian first reponders volunteered their time to assist in the recovery efforts.

As a former firefighter, I broke down & cried when I heard the numbers of first responders lost when the towers collapsed.  To this day I remember where I was, what I was doing and the people I had around me on 9/11.

Canadian's do remember the events of 11 years ago. We just remember differently, Canadian's are a reserved people, we choose to do this quieter with less fanfare. 

Just one Canadian's perspective.
