Pretty sweet. Yay, Canada!  Thank you for taking the initiative to add games + social networking tipes = online safety excellence.  Let’s hope the wee ones don’t count it out for being schoolish (Oregon Trail was schoolish…. but it was NEVER lame).  Teachers!  Teachers– take advantage of this!  Yay!

Tralala, thank you YTV 🙂
