O Canada

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

Petition to sell Montana to Canada.
Great Falls (MT) Tribune editorial:
Petition: Sell Montana to Canada for $1 trillion


"Also from a Canadian: What if instead we sell Saskatchewan to the US and then on the map Americans would be flipping off the rest of the world like they always do? (Uh, salty!)"

:lol:

How much of the $1T would we have to give back to get Canada to take North Dakota, too?

Sell Montana to Canada for $1 Trillion to eliminate the national debt (petition)

15,629 have signed, including me. :thumbup:

Thieves Break into Spirits Factory, Steal Tank of Water Instead of Vodka

:confusion-scratchheadblue:

They really needed a Montanadian advising them.

"... it would have required “guts and stupidity” to carry out the heist with a large tanker truck, and would have been more complicated if they had used a smaller tanker truck making several trips.

"When asked if the thieves mistook the water for the stronger liquid, he told CBC: "If they did, they're going to be thinking that vodka is pretty weak. I'd be surprised, but who knows what people are thinking when they come in and take something like that?"

Newfies - had to be Newfies, didn't it? :lol: :lol:

To be fair, it's Canadian vodka, the iceberg water may be more valuable. ;)

I'm not particularly a vodka drinker, and haven't had any Canadian vodka, but if it's anything like the Maine vodka we got for some gifts this summer, it's really good. Maine, Canada, whatever. Cold River Vodka - buy some if you can find it.

I was just making the joke. I haven't had any vodka in decades.

Good article on anti-vaxxers. "Canada Nice" is wearing thin, as well it should be in the US too...

I'm glad they're giving that kid in Ohio who, upon turning 18, got himself vaccinated, but articles referring to his "rebellion" against his mum remind me of "Alice's Restaurant" when Arlo got thrown into jail.

Some time in the future a group is sitting around talking about their youthful adventures: "I ran off with my boyfriend to Mexico," "I got a full back tattoo of Justin Bieber," "I got involved in a robbery," "I was drunk and disorderly for weeks," ... ... "I got a measles vaccination."

"As Trudeau vacations in Florida, details are once again scarce"

https://nationalpost.com/news/politics/ ... ain-scarce

Not so scarce around here. He's rented two very nice beachfront houses on Captiva. Showed up with family and a herd of large rough looking guys with dark shades and earpieces. Plus a bunch of local sheriff's people.

I guess he wants to get out of the Ottawa cold as well as away from the heat from SNC-Lavalin.
