Mileage Distances between Canadian cities

Hi,

I have been trying to find a comparable feature to Maps in Yahoo which calculates mileage distances, gives driving directions, etc. for Canadian cities. I have found a wonderful site for European cities called cwlease.com but so far I have been batting zero between cities in Canada.

Any help would be appreciated.

Here is a failproof trick while you are travelling and staring at those kilometre highway signs.
Always muliply by 6 and drop the last digit of your answer. It always works.
ie: 100 km X 6 = 600 Cancel the last 0 and your answer is 60 miles. Always works. Those map sites other readers have mentioned are excellent as well but if you are going to do any driving you better learn quick conversion.
Have fun.

Why do you folks always assume that the person reading the kilometer figures is not a native kilometer speaker and thinks miles are foreign? After all, the US of A is about the only major nation that has not converted to K's.

Even though I use metric I still want to convert kilometers to miles at times, so I found that information interesting.
