    Oh Canada ...

    Congrats on your day!

    Congrats to all the NEWFIES I've known over the years.

    Congrats to all the Canucks I've known over the years.

    Is it LaBlatt's time yet? or Maybe a little Screech for the Newfies?

    I will never forget the seal stew I had in Labador.

    Many of the stores that had their windows boarded up to close them off after the riots, had to replace the plywood because of the thousands of signatures and notes from people expressing support for the police, and police car left overnight in the aftermath was covered in messages. The city is rallying back together and stronger than before.

    I was talking only in context of passion for Ice hocky.
    Have you ever been in a bar after any Ice hocky game.

    No, Thunder Bay is in the middle of the country, at the head of lake Superior.

    Track ties are soaked in creosote. Beavers don't like that. Out west it's the moose, grizz, and landslides that cause most problems.

    Did a city in Canada have had riots or similar uprisings lately? My news channels haven't said anything about it.

    There's an old saying that man can't tell the difference between his sex and his violence.

    Vancouver wasn't a riot as much as it was a party crashed by low lifes. In Canada, the standard of living is relatively high, with not much call for disobedience.
