Sure but there is still a kind of connection....in WW2 before the US became involved, there were so many volunteers for the RCAF and Canadian Army from Texas that Texas was tongue-in-cheek referred to as Canada's 10th Province
(Newfoundland was not part of Canada)

And so that make's it factual? Don't think so
No, but just because there is a Midland, Canada doesn't mean Midland, Texas was named after it, now does it?

Absolutely.

However, I just reread the posts to confirm and nowhere did anyone say it was. I believe you were the one that had to state the fact that it was not.

that was all

Ok, first I apologize for my part in hijacking this thread. The thread where it states that during WWII there was a high Canadian content in Texas (which explains why MOST of the Texans are good people today) and does not state ANYWHERE that Midland Texas was named after Midland, Ontario CANADA.

All this bantering makes me want to go for a spin in my Shelby. The ONLY Mustang to have a 5.4 and a six speed.

:rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

and yes, I am right

And to think I started this with the Wayne moving to Midland, Texas crack. :lol:

Paul, it's the other way around. There were a bunch of Texans in Canada (according to RCSignals). That's why Canadians are cool! :wink:

OK Children here is your history lesson for today....

Midland Ontario

The town of Midland was founded when, in 1871, the Midland Railway of Canada selected the sparsely populated community of Mundy's Bay as the new terminus of the railway.

Midland Texas

Midland was originally called Midway because of its location between Fort Worth and El Paso; however the name was soon changed to Midland to avoid confusion with other towns in Texas named Midway.

So I guess no one was right!! Didn't come from the old country whereever the heck that is and neither town was named after the other.

Now can the thread go back to more interesting things like the 08 Bullitt picture release...

Well there probably is a high number of Canadians in Texas today, I know of a few. The WW2 comment was about a high number of Texans traveling to Canada to join the Canadian military before the US entered the war. :smile:
