    Why Toronto?

    This has been bugging me all week. Why would Shawn and Belle go cross the Canadian border and get to Toronto of all places? Toronto isn't anywhere near any of the Canadian/American borders that they'd have crossed. They'd have gone to Niagara Falls, or Windsor if anything.

    Toronto is four hours away from the Detroit/Windsor border and an hour and a half from the Niagara Falls border!! So... which border did they cross and why did they arrive in Canada and seem to be right downtown Toronto?? It's impossible and annoys the you know what out of me. I feel like I have to write to the writers of DOOL to explain this.

    So I feel compelled to ask. Why Toronto? :P Are Toronto and Montreal the only two places that the writers have ever heard about in the vast country of Canada???!!

    Ekk.. thanks for letting me vent!! hehe

    Totally ok to vent! I live in Traverse City Michigan, so when I heard that the Michigan State Police were after them and Roman tracked Steve and Kayla's phone conversation from some place in the Upper Penninsula of Michigan, that means that Belle and shawn just hopped the border and if they did go into Canada that far, then Steve made it home in record time? LOL!

    Where is Salem anyway, I am beginning to wonder, maby we can ask the writers of the show! LOL!

    Now your wondering is going to be on my mind all week also!

    Steve got home mighty fast and Roman is going to lie to the Michigan State Police! Wrong!!!!!

    Ugh!!!!!!!! And Roman just walks away! Any good cop would suspect that something is going wrong when you have a bar full of people who's faces are straight as arrows and all stiff, and even I could feel the tension!

    Come on writers!

    Some other people on other boards are asking the same question and one man had this answer, He thinks that Salem is by Chicago. He said Shawn wanted Bo's truck to drive to Indiana for Jan's abortion, You have sailing and fishing on the lakes, skiing not that far off in the hills and Toronto is only a few hours if you cut accross Indiana and Michigan. (could be why the Michigan police were chasing them) And it would be easy to get a flight anywhere and quick.

    What do you think? Could be possible.

    Do you think that Roman is waiting for someone to just burst! I mean out of all the people in the room, someone is going to burst, like Chelsea almost did and Nick had to escort her out of the way, I mean Roman has no proof yet, so waiting for someone to burst at anytime, he will get the evidence when it happens.

    And I am also wondering where Salem is since Steve made it home really quickly! How far did Steve actaully take Shawn and Belle into Canada, since he made it back to Salem so quickly?

    Just wondering..........

    According to Wikipedia Salem was in New England till the 1970's then in was moved to the Midwest, never naming a state.

    Why Toronto Indeed. I can understand leaving Ill for Michigan cause that's the route that was taken. So it seems. How did they go from Michigan, USA to Toronto, Canada faster than DHL and UPS put together? Steve must have some AMAZING driving skills. Is that where Steph gets her ability to race from? Her super quick driving dad? If so, then Steph never has to worry about winning any competition she enters. She'll win, hands down. If Daddy can drive what would be an easy 6 hour min trip before Claire takes her nap, Steph has NO worries. Steve driving Shelle into Canada and getting home before I can bat an eye lash, HAS to be one of those wierd soap land time loop thing.

    I've been thinking this all along. Where the heck is Salem? It's been said plenty that it's "some mid western town". Seems to me, the state of Ill would make the most sense. They weren't far away from Chicago, Lucas has flown there on the Titan jet many times. LA doesn't seem far away either. Though I'm betting it's closer than NY. There seems to be plenty of shopping available. Then there is Green Mt Lodge which I would gather a guess to be in the mountains? Where ever that is, they have PLENTY of snow there. Which leads me to believe it's more north than south. They are also near a big body of water, otherwise, Bope could not have the Fancy Face so close at hand.
    Ever notice, btw: how time never seems to make sense in soap land? In one scene, they are just getting up for the day, say for example, Sami is getting Will ready for school. Next scene they jump to, it's night time and Shelle's having dinner at the Brady Pub. WHAT???????????? the hack just happened here? How does it go from day to night in a < than 5 min time span? Makes no sense to me or is it just me?

    Hey Natalie, it's funny you should say that. I told my husband that very same thing and he said to me, "of course Roman knows, He read the script." I bout fell out of my chair.
