lol, I've heard that if you give us Canadians a couple of flats worth of 24's we'll be happily on our way - thing about that is, we drink our beer. Not your crappy 'Budweiser', our blessed Blue and Canadian. You give me 'Old Milwaukee', and the last word of that song changes from 'beer' to 'queer'.
Let's hear it for Multiculturalism! For Free Health Care! For Logical Love Of Life! For Canada!

And I always wondered, what is considered the date of independence from the Motherland, 1867, 1982, or some year in between?
