Just to recap, we asked you to take a time machine 100 years into the future and send us a message via Twitter (while using the hashtag #canadawrites). Here are some of our favourites:

Shilpa @ShilpaRaikar I hear you used to live in homes that you owned. Earth became expensive. Our ancestors left to find a better life on Mars
Corey Redekop @CoreyRedekop It's a hard life, toiling in the betacarotene mines for our sentient carrot overlords. Good health plan, though.
