    Dear Sallyally DEAR :blowkiss:

    Perhaps is not a word "real Americans" employ. Too indefinitive, squishy, for our communication values. It is usually my lead that someone is really from EuroLand
    pretending to speak American.

    Sallyally is hereby outed as Aussie.
    That's :flagcanada:-lite
    Forewarned is forewarned.
    :heart: ya :blowkiss: Sallyally
    Although I prefer Kiwis. ​

    Y'gotta feel sorry for Captain Bligh and the way them O.Z.'s treated him after Bounty.

    I saw the Nicole Kidman movie.
    Tom Selleck's too

    PS. Why do you think I was trying to speak American? I was trying to be non country specific?

    Hi Sallyally.....no... there is no significant secessionist movement in Nova Scotia.

    I have lived here for almost all of my 57 years and I have seen
    nothing along that line brought up at all. Western Canada is a bit different.....

    I have to disagree with you on this Moi621, the economy of Nova Scotia is so depressed and
    so many young people are forced to move out to western Canada to find jobs that I personally think that the people of Canso would probably be quite enthusiastic about this venture......
    even if the economic benefit to the local economy was far less than might be expected by a venture that is so high profile.

    The tone of this article and is what I would expect from the vast majority of residents of Canso.
    Enthusiasm...... tempered with a bit of unbelief that something so good could really happen there!

    Actually.... we Nova Scotians tend to have something of a "United Empire Loyalist" approach to life itself......
    and to government......
    The probability of a Separation Movement gaining momentum in my province is close to zero......

    Thank you for considering my, red, bold font "Beware of :flagcanada:" message poetry.
    What part don't you understand? Seeing as English is our first language but you need a spell check to drop the superfluous "u" - what part don't you comprende?

    Now back to reality and image as they broadcast.
    Witness, starving teachers take food away from Children!
    https://www.popsugar.com/moms/Teachers-Taking-Away-School-Lunches-Arent-Healthy-42499265
    School Lunches Were Confiscated
    From Children Has Parents Infuriated

    Parents in Durham, Ontario, are sharing stories of how teachers are taking away snacks and lunches from children that they deem to be unhealthy. According to The Star, the foods being discouraged vary depending on classroom (and teacher's preferences :hmm: ) and school but include "Goldfish crackers, Bear Paws cookies, granola bars, string cheese, Jello, juice boxes, pudding cups, gummy fruit snacks, raisins, Animal Crackers, chocolate milk and Sun Chips."

    Starving children is not new for La Canada.

    Documents that show native children in Canada were
    deprived of nutrition or deliberately starved after World War II

    From residential schools to forced relocations, Canada’s record on institutional abuses of its aboriginal people is well documented. Despite this, the discovery of papers proving that federal researchers denied nutrition or deliberately starved aboriginal children in the 1940s and ‘50s is both shocking and tragic.

    What a terrible burden for the 1,300 (or more) children who were deprived of sustenance and even dental care in secret experiments, all of which came to light in research uncovered by Ian Mosby, a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Guelph. It’s a powerful discovery.


    And that's the way it is with our benign neighbor to the north.
    For a good time, check out the original, now closed "Is It True" thread.
    Moi does not make this stuff up. We reference.

    I meant, is it from a poem, or is it of your own devising?

    That is hysterically funny. I'd never listened to the radio play and didn't recognise it.
    Jeannette seems to be very well informed. Is she from NZ?
