Perfect. Canada went to the metric system in the 70's if I recall. Maybe it was the right thing to do but it has been a mess with the US right next door. I was luck I guess because when I was in school the change was taking place so we were taught both.
Same here. Plus everything at work (Chemicals) is measured in C...so it make it easier for me to understand.
