Toronto Maple Leafs Win Stanley Cup!!!

Canada was stunned Monday when it was announced that The Stanley Cup will be awarded to the Toronto Maple Leafs, possibly as early as December 6th.
The cup will be stripped from from 2008 playoff champions the Detroit Red Wings and be awarded to the Leafs, who didn't even make the playoffs.
How is this possible, Canadians ask?
Well, the Leafs have formed a coalition with eastern conference semifinalists the Montreal Canadians, and conference quarter finalists the Ottawa Senators, now outnumbering the Red Wings.
According to current Leaf coach Ron Wilson "the Red Wings have lost the confidence of the league and should hand the cup over immediately to our coalition".
NHL commissioner Gary Bettman is cutting short a European trip to try to resolve the unprecedented hockey crisis that could force a second playoff series, or see an opposing team coalition take the cup.

How the Grinches Stole Canada...

Three Tips to Save the Conservative Campaign

The Conservatives need to bypass the media and explain the following three things to Canadians in simple and honest terms.

1) Explain how the opposition parties' plans would lose jobs and further devalue Canadian companies. Jack Layton wants to increase corporate tax by the tune of 50 Billion dollars. This would lead to companies relocating or finding those savings elsewhere, such as payroll. Dion's 'plan', if you could call it that, is to consult with 'experts', the same experts that Harper has been working with throughout the last year and during this crisis. My guess is they would explain to Dion that what Harper is doing is what needs to be done. Along with consultation, Dion would start taxing CO2, which we all know is something we need to power industry and these increases in costs would be passed to the consumer. If the consumer is outside of Canada, this will make it even harder to sell when people around the world are going to slow down their buying. In short, both of the other major parties plans are far worse that simply riding it out.

2) Explain in some details what the Conservative plan is and why it’s the best course of action. Explain to Canadians that The Prime Minister has already consulted with all of the 'experts' that Dion will consult with in his first month and inform people that they have already recommended the current course of action as the most prudent. On top of this, role out some details on what the continency plans are if things start to get a lot worse. People want to be reassured that the government is listening to their concerns and have backup plans to protect them if and when times get tougher.

3) Announce a buy in Canada plank to the platform. This may sound like a page from the NDP or the Green party, but if the government lays out a plan to source as many contracts within Canada and ask Canadians to do the same in their personal spending, it would go a long way in showing the Conservatives care about Canadian jobs and it would talk to the patriotic side in all of us. I would argue that they should even go as far as targeting investments in industries to make them capable of supplying the government where these industries are now deficient, such as the Montreal textile industry to create our military uniforms or Canada's ship building industry in manufacturing our military ships. This would have to be done with some prudence, but Australia did it with its submarine fleet and the government could leverage these investments to collect more tax revenue as these economic sectors succeed and start producing products for the larger world market. Like I said, this would have to be done with prudence to find which sectors could provide the largest return on investment as it shouldn't be corporate welfare.

What do you think? I'm no strategemist or political scientician, but it’s the best I could come up with on short notice.

Conservatives Could Be in Trouble

The opposition, whether by design or by dumb luck, have landed a big shot on the Conservatives and Stephen Harper in the English debate last week. At the time I didn't even notice. Overall, people in the know believed that the Prime Minister held his own, but to the average Canadian, a huge weakness was perceived about Stephen Harper. I say perceived because this weakness is not based on reality, but on a false perception. This perception must be corrected this week or we could all be in for a surprise on the 14th.

I was talking with co-workers on Friday and almost without an exception, they all said that they are worried that Stephen Harper doesn't have a plan to deal with the current economic crisis in the US. They are worried about their jobs and mortgages. I repeatedly informed them that the job market in Canada was solid and that our banks and other financial institutions were in good shape, but they wouldn't believe me. The opposition and the media have totally whipped Canadians into a panic, a panic that could very well lead to the doom and gloom that they are worried about. The most threatening thing to the Canadian economy is loss of equity of Canadian firms through the stock market and a slowdown in Canadian buying. We all know that trade with the US will go down, but if we lose these other components of the Canadian economy, we will be in serious trouble.

I find it sad and terrifying that otherwise smart, university educated people would have no idea how our economy works, but there you have it. Dion, May, Layton, and Duceppe, along with their friends in the media, have found the sweet spot among the Canadian electorate and they will exploit it. What's really sad is that by doing this, they may cause the very crisis that they are telling us Stephen Harper isn't dealing with, and none of their plans would do anything but make the situation even worse.

If anyone from the Conservative campaign is reading this, you have a week to change this perception. You can't claim it’s not real and try and explain why. You have to convince Canadians that you have a solution even if the problem doesn't exist... you may want to contact Al Gore and David Suzuki for tips.

The Debate: Dion's Plan on the Economy

Stephan Dion, with his last minute 'plan to save the economy' shows just how unprepared he is to deal with the economic slowdown. Removing all the rhetoric and politcal speak here are the positions of the two leaders:

Dion: If elected, I will spend the first 30 days to try and figure out this economy thing, what the hell is going wrong with it, and try and come up with a plan that will fix it.

Harper: I have been on top of managing this crisis a full year before it had even happened. I don't need to come up with a 30 day plan, I've been implementing my plan since last-frickin-year.

Who do you think Canadians are going to pick?

Its 2005 All over again!

  • December 14 : Liberal officials released a 1997 speech by Harper that referred to Canada as "a Northern European welfare state in the worst sense of the term." Conservative officials said that most of the comments were in jest.
  • December 15- The leaders of the four major political parties gathered inVancouver for the first of four televised debates. The leaders debated in French.
  • December 16 - The four party leaders participated in the English televised debate in Vancouver.
Bonus: Liberal Plagiarist not expelled: Pablo Rodriguez who interrogated former PM Brian Mulroney using a series of questions provided to him by CBC parliamentary journalist Krista Erickson (unattributed of course)!

Even Dion does not support RESP bill As Is

Good thing Flaherty is killing the RESP private members bill through the budget bill ... even Liberal Leader Stephane Dion is not convinced that the bill is any good.

While Dion said it is "a good idea'' and indicated that something like McTeague's plan will be part of his party's next election platform. He said "Maybe not exactly as it is ..."

Well at least we know why he'll likely abstain from the next budget vote!

So you want to negotiate with the Taliban?

It looks like negotiating for hostages only begets more hostage taking. Who knew? Well actually a lot of people but no one would listen to them. Now lets hope that Taliban Jack and the rest of the appeasers will follow the Red Cross' lead and try and set up their own meeting to negotiate...

KABUL - Two foreigners from the International Red Cross who helped free South Korean captives last month have been kidnapped in Afghanistan after talking with militants about the release of a German hostage, officials said Thursday.

An official with reliable information said the two foreigners from the International Committee of the Red Cross had gone with their two Afghan drivers to Wardak province in central Afghanistan to discuss the release of a German man kidnapped in July.

All four ICRC staff were taken captive Wednesday afternoon, the official said on condition of anonymity.

The two foreigners had helped co-ordinate negotiations and the release of 19 South Korean captives late last month, the official said.

Ewaz Muslimyar, the police chief of Wardak province, confirmed the two foreigners were abducted in Salar district.

The number of kidnappings has spiked this year after the Taliban secured the release of five insurgent prisoners in exchange for a captive Italian journalist in March - a heavily criticized swap many feared would encourage abductions.

The South Korean hostage crisis was another windfall for the Taliban, winning them face-to-face talks with South Korean government delegates.

Militants kidnapped 23 South Koreans July 19 in Ghazni province as they travelled by bus on a dangerous road from Kabul to volatile Kandahar in the south. Two hostages were killed; the rest were released after weeks of negotiations between the Taliban and the Korean delegation.

The talks were held at the ICRC office in Ghazni and ICRC officials drove to pick up the South Koreans after they were released.

The German engineer, Rudolf Blechschmidt, was abducted one day before the Koreans. It is believed he was initially taken by criminals in Wardak, then later handed over to the Taliban.

Blechschmidt is one of two German engineers and five Afghans who were snatched together. The other German was found dead of gunshot wounds July 21, while one of the Afghans managed to escape.

Happy Canada Day II ...

Happy Day off in lieu of Canada Day because the REAL Canada Day fell on a Sunday and we all know that government employees are so overworked they need as much rest as they can possibly get.

Unlike retail employees who are specifically hired because they have no family and no friends and would never want to celebrate their country on any day let alone Canada Day, and can just darn well have any old day off that the government deems fit to assign to them.

Thank you for shopping here - have a nice day :)

(I'm not even going to comment on those consumers who felt it neccessary to consume on a National Holiday (for everyone except for retail employees - see above)).

Happy Canada Day 2007!!!

Well, our third IAM(also)CANADIAN Canada day...who wooda thunk it!

Here's an old post to get you in the mood...

“I was a lumberjack, and am a fur trader.
I have slept in an igloo, eaten blubber, and although I don’t own a dog sled, I do have a ski-doo.
I do know Jimmy and Sally, Suzie is my ex, and they’re all assholes.
I have a crooked Prime Minister, not a President; I speak neither English or French properly; and
I don’t pronounce it “about” or “a boot”; I just say “bout”.
I can proudly sew my country’s flag on my backpack, because with the taxes I pay I live out of my backpack.
I believe in peace keeping, not policing, even though we got rid of our peacekeepers to buy more police,
Diversity, not assimilation (unless I go to Quebec); and that the beaver tastes like chicken and makes a nice fur coat.
A toque is a hat, a chesterfield is a couch (where I sleep), and it is pronounced ”Z”, not “zed” or “zee”.
Canada is the second highest taxed landmass, the first nation of bleeding hearts, and coldest part of North America. My name is Joe, and I am also Canadian.”

And howzabout another top Canadian post...CANADIAN JEDI!!!

Senators of Ottawa

Hold your ground, hold your ground. Senators of Canada, of Sweden, my brothers. I see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. A day may come when the courage of Sen Fan fails, when we forsake our team and break all bonds of fanship, but it is not this day. An hour of Ducks and shattered shields, when the age of Sens comes crashing down, but it is not this day. This day we fight! By all that you hold dear on this good Earth, I bid you "stand, Men of the Sens!"

Garth's House

From an unreliable source --- here is Garth's MLS listing for his house.

Disturbingly ordinary --- then again I was expecting wall to wall to ceiling to floor mirrors so that Garth could take in his Garthness from every angle!
Check out the desk Garth uses for his computer --- using such an antique is so bourgeois.

I would recommend each Blogging Tory support Garth by donating $1 to raise a couple hundred bucks for a computer desk.

Oh yeah and Garth : "Those who suffered paper losses from the Halloween decision to tax income trusts have almost fully recovered them in the past six weeks, says the Guardian Group of Funds."

Canadians Just Not Buying It

There are two interesting stories at The first story- Canadians ready for a carbon tax: David Suzuki - is one about the 'Environment crusader' telling us 'ordinary' Canadians that we are smarter than the politicians and even us 'ordinary' Canadians are ready for the progressive and ingenious idea of a Carbon tax. I find it a little patronizing, but I guess its a typical 'used car' sales pitch, tell the people they are smart and only a smart, incredibly attractive, and dynamic person such as ourselves would buy that Pinto... er, I mean protocol. Well good doctor, according to CTV's own poll, placed within site of the story to illicit the most honest of responses, you are completely wrong.

The second interesting story was Thousands march to pressure Tories on Kyoto. I'm sure if this was a year and a half ago the story would be Thousands march to pressure governments on Kyoto, but I digress. I don't usually agree with the Kyoto crowd, but this 'crusader' nailed it on the head:

Under a blazing sun, Shannahn McInnis pushed a stroller with her two-year old daughter who sported a green T-shirt that said, "I run on natural gas.''

McInnis saw the massive Montreal event as a chance to put some pressure on the Harper government. "I'm extremely pessimistic on it doing anything, but I thought I'd come anyway,'' McInnis said.

"I don't think it's at all a priority to any of the parties except the Green Party and the NDP, and they're so far away from being elected. If that's the case, it wouldn't seem to be a priority for the public, either because they're not electing the parties that consider this the priority.''

Sparse crowds in other parts of the country seemed to emphasize the point.

Now maybe you should tell the higher-ups that.

Neon Dion Still in the 90's

In a change of tactics that marks an unthinking change of Liberal political strategy, Neon Dion set up shop on Bay Street.

Umm -- Somebody should tell that Big Corporations don't vote and can not be hit up for big donations like the Liberals did in the past.

Flaherty ---"It shows a fundamental misunderstanding of the whole idea of all of us sharing the tax load equally in Canada ... If [Neon Dion] has his way, it means that all ordinary Canadians will have higher taxes."

Even funnier -- Neon Dion was flanked by high-ranking Liberals who are familiar to the financial crowd -- former investment banker Scott Brison and former Royal Bank chief economist John McCallum.

What - no Garth Turner --- snubbed in Toronto again? Oh, he's too busy whining about MPTV getting the boot from the foyer --- like the Conservative staffers and Stephen Taylor.

I guess as an MP - Garth is entitled to his entitlements.

Dion Selles Out to Greens!!1

According to the Red Star "Stephane Dion has decided not to run a Liberal candidate against Green Party Leader Elizabeth May in the next federal election."

Ha --- even better -CBC says that - May has agreed to not run a Green candidate against Dion! I guess Dion is running scared of the mighty greens!

Newfie Joke...

This Newfie goes to Parliament hill after the release of the federal budget.

In the budget, Newfoundland is offered a new formula used to calculate provincial equalization payments, or remain with the current system.

The formula gives it the choice between including 50% of their resource revenues or excluding them entirely, but also introduces a cap to the amount of money they can receive in equalization payments.

After reading the budget, the Newfie says "But bye, I wants ta keeps all my equalization payments...and all my offshore oil revenue too!"

Obligatory Budget Post

Individuals are pissed today. People with grown children are mad. Apprently everyone in the media and quite a few Bloggers fit these two demographics. I am not 100% happy with the budget, but I just want to point out that people in this demographic have been targeted for the last 25 years and its time for families to get a piece of the pie. In an ideal world we should be taxed as a household, rather than as an idividual, but until then we need to tackle at least some of the unfairness in the current tax system. If I read one more story about how the average Canadian - "ordinary, hard-working folk" - got nothing in the budget I'm gonna punch something. I guess people with kids aren't average Canadians. We are the extremist fringe or something.

Complain all you want about the increase in spending, I know I have, but don't say that the budget sucks because you didn't personally get any tax breaks this time around. If we did have a fair tax system, then cuts would benefit everyone equally, but until then, just enjoy the fact that you don't have to pay for diapers or school supplies.

CTV Officially Stupid

I was just doing some reading and found this 'gem' of a story on the CTV website: Tory memo says election could start 'within a week'. This 'memo' is an 'internal letter' by 'party heavyweight' Irving Gerstein, chair of the Conservative Fund Canada, and "was obtained by The Canadian Press after it was erroneously sent to a former Conservative who left the party but still receives its correspondence."

Wow, this top secret letter by the highest echelons of power in the CPC sure do contradict the Prime Minister and make Stephen Harper look like an opportunistic power mad tyrant, telling everyone one thing but secretly planning another. Talk about Hidden agendas.

Of course that might be true IF THIS WASN'T A MONTHLY FUNDRAISING LETTER THAT'S BEEN SAYING PRETTY MUCH THE SAME THING FOR ABOUT 6 FREAKIN' MONTHS!!!! I think this is a new low for CTV, not for bias, just for sloppy reporting of a total non-story. I wonder what the Liberal and NDP monthly fund-raising emails look like? I bet there is a lot of talk about 'urgently needing money for an election call at anytime!!!' How in any modern country could this be considered national news?

Liberals In Trouble In Latest Poll

The latest Decima poll has the Liberals 6 points behind the Conservatives, 29% to 35%. The poll confirms that the trend is continuing with the Conservatives gaining support among women and city-dwellers.

The CP story describes the one silver lining for the Liberals: the surge in support in Quebec. The poll puts the Bloc at 31%, the Liberals at 29%, and the Conservatives at 17%. If this is the Liberal's silver lining, then they are in trouble. The Quebec numbers are likely getting a boost from the current Quebec provincial election where the Provincial Liberals are in the lead and the PQ is doing poorly. Couple this with the fact that Quebec has no Provincial Conservative party, PC or CPC, and thus are not experiencing the same boost and you can see that if the Liberal support in Quebec more closely resembles the pre-election CROP polls, the national numbers are skewed by as much as a negative 1-2% for the Libs and a positive 1-2% for the Cons and you can see that this poll confirms the 36% to 27% result decima produced last week.

It will be interesting to see what the polling results will be a month or so after the Quebec election and the Provincial Liberal boost their federal cousins are enjoying wears off. Although that poll might come on election night.

Are the National Polls Wrong On Quebec?

Decima has just released their latest poll and again I have found something quite interesting.

National Numbers:
Conservatives: 36%
Liberals: 27%
New Democrats: 13%
Greens: 12%

Ok, that's not what was interesting, I just wanted to gloat a little. The interesting bit is in the regional breakdown for Quebec:

Quebec Numbers:
Bloc: 35%
Liberals: 23%
Conservatives: 15%

Now compare that with the recent CROP polling numbers from Quebec (h/t Paul Wells)
Bloc: 36%
Liberals: 26%
Conservatives: 22%

And Leger's had the Conservatives at 24%

Now I know that Decima and CROP are within their margin of error, Decima's being quite high because of low number of participants for the regional numbers, but its a trend that I have seen quite a bit. The national polling numbers for the region of Quebec usually have the Conservatives with between 15-19% support and the provincial polling firms (CROP and Leger) put support for the Conservatives between 20-25% in Quebec. I'm not complaining, they might do this with the Liberal numbers as well if I had been as interested in them. It just seems that the national pollsters' numbers consistently don't jive with the Quebec pollsters'.

My theory is that Conservative support in Quebec is so concentrated that with a random sampling you can easily miss a lot of it when a small sample is taken. Hopefully this will equate to more seats but I guess time will tell.

More Proof of CBC Bias...

A very interesting phenomenon on This Hour Has 22 Minutes this week - the whole show wasn't spent slamming Stephen Harper and the Conservatives!

Was there a format change you ask? No, it was a "Best Of" special:

On this week's This Hour Has 22 Minutes:
The votes are in. Tune in to witness democracy in action - see the clips you voted for in our Best Of special Tuesday, Feb. 20th

Very interesting...22minutes mainly consists of anti Conservative left-wing propaganda, however when the PEOPLE decide which clips to watch there was none of this! (There was only one clip "Leave it to Stever" that was mildly amusing, but only for the "Leave it to Beaver" parody.)

I guess this once again proves how out of step the CBCs left wing slant is for most Canadians...

I'm with Sheila Copps on this!

"No one can argue that when it comes to murder rates, Mexico is more deadly than Canada. But the same can be said of many foreign destinations. You are more than three times as likely to be murdered in the United States yet no one in his or her right mind would call for an American travel boycott."

"Ignore the media pileup and you will enjoy a great trip. And if John Crosbie is reading this, don't forget to pass me the tequila, Sheila."

Global Warming Causes WW3!!!

As foreshadowed by Joan's update referring to this MSM story, the belief that Global WarmingTM is caused by humans drives the planet to global war...

World War 3 began after President Jacques Chirac of the decaying French empire appealed for a new environmental body that could single out and police nations that "abuse" the Earth, on February 3rd, 2007 (see here). This event began the struggle between the US, China, India and Russia (referred to as the "Deniers"), versus France and most of Europe. (Labeling themselves as the "World Environmental Government").

On July 26, 2007, the Environmental Government officials issued an ultimatum (known as the second Kyoto Protocol) to the Denier governments containing five major concessions. Once the time limit on the ultimatum had expired, the Environmental Government declared war on Denier countries. Germany supported the Environmental Government in the war effort while Russia supported the Deniers. Germany therefore declared war on Russia on August 1, 2007 and on their allies, on August 3, 2007.

On August 4, 2007, German troops were sent into Canada, defying the neutrality that the Canadians were promised. Great Britain declared war against Germany that same day.

The Third World War was the time of first usage of many war technologies; the plasma gun, unmanned airplane and submarine, poison (non-greenhouse) gas, powerful implosives, flame throwers, super hand grenades, accurate long-range nukes and robot tanks all made their debut. Canada played a particularly significant role in space, having more than 25,000 Canadians serving with the British Space Force.

The Third World War was a "trench war". Trenches protected troops from nuclear and plasma gun fire. These trenches were between sixty and eighty feet deep and were separated from enemy trenches by no man's land. Off duty troops lived in dugouts in support trenches and supplies, food and fresh troops were moved to the front through a network of reserve and communication trenches. Firing trenches were backed by cover trenches which acted as the second line of defense in case the first were overrun by the enemy. This war was also the first to be fought by drafted left wingers.

The major battles of World War 3 included the battles of the Marne, Ypres, Verdun, the Somme, Cambrai, and Missasauga.

An Armistice was signed at 5:00 a.m. in a railway carriage in the Forest of Compiegne, France on November 11, 2018 when scientists discovered conclusive proof Global Warmingtm was not caused by ice age happened.

Save The Planet...

Stop shopping at Wal-Mart!

that's right. Stop shopping at Wal-Mart. Why, you ask? Well here goes :

As I'm sure you are all aware, China is one of the worst emitters of Greenhouse GasTM, second only to the dreaded US (who, by the way, owns Wal-Mart...hmmm, I'm beginning to see a connection here...).

Not only that, but China may soon become #1 (see: China, India, and other developing countries will soon be the top contributors to greenhouse gases. Also, without Kyoto restrictions on these countries, industries in developed countries will be driven towards these non-restricted countries, thus there is no net reduction in carbon. (Wikipedia) )

and so...

One of China's largest trading partners isn't a country, but a company - Wal-Mart - which accounted for 14 per cent of all exports in 2004. China now has a whopping 38 per cent of the world electronics production and chances are the refrigerator in your home has a MADE IN CHINA sticker on it. (more here)

So what does it all mean? Well, If you really believe humans are causing Global WarmingTM, then forget about the smart cars, energy efficient light bulbs, and weather striping. You must stop shopping at Wal-Mart! Everything you buy is produced by a non-restricted, carbon spewing Chinese factory!

So all you Kyotologist , If you truly believe in your cause, you will not emit any more Greenhouse GasesTM by buying Chinese products.

Oh, I almost forgot...It will be back to paying $100 for a digital watch, $600 for a DVD player, Plasma TV...fogetabadit!

Liberal Bloc Affair

Notice how the story is all about the NDP working with the Conservatives and not the fact that the Liberals and Bloc are snuggling so romantically.

Give the Liberals credit for one thing - once Harper showed he was not going to touch health care, the Liberals quickly looked for something else to use as a wedge issue and, using their media connnections, put global warming at the top of canadian concerns.

The downside for the Liberals is that Harper is in power and can do something about it.

We will see what Canadians think about someone who was a sceptic in the past but actually got something done for the enviroment over the Kyotologist who bowed before their god but acheived nothing.

Tuesday, January 30, 2007


The Church of Kyotology reminds me of Scientology (without the cool alien thing!)

Kyotology attacks free speech. Any questioning of the god Kyoto results in cries of "Global Warming" denier!

Kyotology says that public statements against Kyotology such as writing anti-Kyotology letters to the papers and in blogs is a "Suppressive Act" - a high crime, according to "Introduction to Kyotology Ethics."

In accordance with this policy (and others like it), Kyotology has tried to silence all criticism.

Kyotology betrays the trust of well-intentioned people by falsely claiming to have a scientifically-proven technology to save the world.

Clipping Dion Quotes ...

for the next election.

Here is a good one in french where Dion says that the Liberals will not use such american style negative campaigning - must have been ... other liberals that used american style attack adds ... in an election ... in Canada ... we are not making this up!

Dion says that it is deporable to fall so low!

We will see how low you go next election!

Il a poursuivi en affirmant que les libéraux ne se livreraient pas à ce genre de publicité « à l'américaine ». « Pour notre part nous ne voulons pas faire ce genre de campagne négative. Je veux gagner cette élection et je ne veux pas tomber si bas, je trouverais cela très déplorable. Nous voulons dire des choses positives, notamment sur mon bilan dans le domaine de l'environnement. », a dit M. Dion.

CTV Panicking!!!

About the "attack ads" - first poll on this stated: (see screen capture)

The Conservatives are planning to release adds attacking Stephen Dion. Is the campaign valid?
Yes, the media has given Dion an easy ride.
No, the ads are a desperate ploy to label Dion.

Now that poll question has been quickly removed from existence (note that it does not show up in the list of past questions --- click results and see for yourself) and replaced with:

The Conservatives are planning to release some new partisan TV ads. Do you think it’s too early for such a campaign?
Yes, ad campaigns should only be launched during an election campaign
No, it’s never too soon

I guess they got the original poll up before they received the Liberal Party Talking Points. Of course, they did not want to see what people really think about the easy ride Dion is getting!

Canada Responsible for 50% of Movie Piracy

Hollywood execs said it - so it must be true!

Great. Now I'm going to have to watch a movie from behind some Canadian snow-back who slips over the border; his camcorder blocking half my view, and my only connection to the movie the flashes of the screen I get as his flopping head jib-jabbers "aboot" the militaristic nature of American culture.

Blame Canada!
Blame Canada!
It seems that everything's gone wrong,
since Canada came along!
