    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 know all about Australia
    I saw the Nicole Kidman movie.
    Tom Selleck's too

    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.
    https://www.thestar.com/opinion/edi...nal_maltreatment_to_start_anew_editorial.html

    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.

    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?

    Canada to legalise marijuana 'by 2018'

    Recreational marijuana use could be legal in Canada by 1 July 2018 under coming legislation, according to reports.

    The federal government will table legislation to legalise marijuana by April, public broadcaster CBC is reporting.


    So what the Liberal Party promise and plan for April is now trumpeted as an accomplishment on "Canada Day" / "Fête du Canada" 2018. (psst, that's July 1, 2018 ) Put off to tomorrow what should be done today.
    Whose smokin' now? :weed:

    Ok, gotcha now. Im not sure. We are a bit Victorian with stuff like this. There's nothing more benign than a pothead and I think that all recreational drugs should be decriminalised. If this were to be done, we'd get rid of a lot of the crime associated with the (now) illicit drugs trade. We have a very strong hard right controlling our government at the moment-pushed mainly by fundamentalist Christians and I can't see them being sympathetic to this. They can't even agree to changing the Marriage Act to enable same sex marriage. Love the song!

    Believe It Or Not, Sallyally :blowkiss: DEAR
    This is not about YOU nor O.Z.Land.

    "How does O. Z. Land stand on the topic."
    I thought you were asking how Australia stands on legalising grass?

    I lived in Milwaukee for 2 years. The second winter got into my finger joints
    and they became visibly red and swollen. Although I wore heavier coats
    and gloves than the locals, I came to realize I am not designed for the cold.
    I did like Milwaukee, the people and culture. The Town of Milwaukee with
    universities and symphony orchestra. Some town.
    And I am an addict for the movie Fargo.
    I remember trying to scrape ice off my windshield.

    But, :flagcanada: is a different place. Cold and more. Never forget Rollo Martin!


    All because President Truman told the joke about the :flagcanada: ice fisherman
    who caught 40 pounds of ice. I doubt it. It goes back further than Truman.

    The ultimate cover-up. :flagcanada: hackers
    make it look like the CIA is making it look like the Russian.

    Stranger and stranger La Canada is. Eh
    Witness, the inhibition of trade between the Provinces.

    http://www.macleans.ca/economy/econ...and-the-bad-in-canadas-provincial-trade-deal/

    The good—and the bad—in Canada’s provincial trade deal
    The deal to tear down trade barriers between the provinces isn’t perfect,
    but it finally puts Canada on a path to greater internal trade freedom



    Each day more than $1 billion moves between provinces, roughly equivalent to 20 per cent of Canada’s economy. But countless thousands of sometimes small differences between provincial rules, regulations, certifications, standards, registration requirements, and so on, makes doing business across Canada difficult. This raises prices, lowers productivity, and lowers income—all to the determinant of Canadian consumers and businesses. . . .

    . . . . there are lots of exemptions—135 pages worth. And some are pretty silly. In Ontario, only residents can be travel agents. In Quebec, only residents can register a race horse stallion. In Manitoba, providing legal services requires, for the most part, that the firm maintains an office there.


    When "America" abandoned the Articles of Confederation for the Constitution,
    one of the main points was interstate trade not being taxed or limited between the States.
    Pity :flagcanada: did not learn from history. Similar to The French Revolution, whose leaders knew of the American history and system, yet chose for a more French experience.

    And so it goes while most readers probably think I make this stuff up.
