What are the most popular websites where Canadian women go to find
husbands?  I'm a mature man; I want to advertise myself on a small
number of them.  I know there are thousands of such sites; I want to
narrow the list down to the few that get the most female visitors.

It depends on what kind of women you are looking for. Are your
intentions serious? Are you looking for a relationship that will end
up in marriage or do you want to advertise yourself as a commodity
that's up-for-sale?

I'm serious.  I want to get married.  I'm looking for a Canadian woman
from 40 to 55 years of age, intelligent, healthy, non-smoker, not
alchoholic nor drug abuser, not obese.   I'm all of those things, but
60 years old.
