So Canada

Since this is Canada Day, I thought I would share some "fun" Canadian facts:

* Prince Edward Island with its long name and small mass is the most difficult place in the world to label on a map.

* Licence plates in Quebec feature the motto "Je me souviens" which roughly translates as "We don't celebrate Canada Day."

* Recent breakthroughs in astrophysics confirm not only that Toronto is indeed the "Centre of the Universe" but that Mayor David Miller's budget is a black hole.

* Alberta has some 175 billion barrels of bitumen in its oil sands, making it a magnet for entrepreneurs, energy analysts and Liberal taxes.

Have a Happy Canada Day everybody!

You are sadly uniformed.

Canada Day is widely celebrated in Québec - from Montreal to Québec City and beyond.

Wake up, bigot that you are.

I think Gerry was being facetious about Quebec, so lighten up Mentarch. However Harper did speak in Ottawa and made reference to his apology to native people-again! Man, he's getting alot of mileage out of that one. p.p.

... I wonder, if polled, how many Quebecers even know what it is that they are supposed to be remembering.
