    It`s been long known that gravity decreases where the Earth`s crust is thinner. For example around a volcano there is less gravity.... not a noticeable amount, but measurable.

    That picture is from British Columbia! Lolz!

    It`s like talking about Ohio, but showing a picture of Colorado...

    But I get it, it`s an "iconic Canadian image" :-)

    Churchill Manitoba: I think that`s Hudson`s Bay in the top right...

    Anyhow: Yes, the ground here is "springing up" as we speak! Half an inch per year...

    Right, go to Hudson bay and freeze your freakin` arse off. That place is damn cold, considering it`s connected to the Arctic.

    So what`s the difference in gravity? I have a feeling if they told us what the difference was, it would be so insignificant that nobody would bother reading their boring article.

    I just looked it up, and all areas of the planet (including the Hudson Bay area) have the same level of gravity within a range of 1/10,000th.

    If we knew this at the beginning of the article, who would have continued reading on? A few scientists maybe?
