    The United States Coast Guard has started to patrol the Great Lakes with machine guns mounted on their vessels and is conducting live-ammunition training drills on the U.S. side to prepare officers to combat terrorists flooding across the border from Canada by boat.


    And my favourite quote:

    “We're trying to be prepared in case something happens,” said a U.S. Coast Guard spokesman, Chief Petty Officer Robert Lanier.

    “I don't know what it is, but I know I want to be prepared for it when it happens. We need to conduct these live-fire exercises so we are prepared for whatever it may be. If we are not prepared for it, there are going to be questions about why we weren't prepared for it.”


    And taking a quick look at the comments on the article, I notice Lyman has infiltrated over there as well:

    "Leftys have 2 favorite passtimes. Criticizing the Americans and criticizing PM Harper and the Conservatives. Notice that they add nothing productive to any discussion? Pathetic lefties, truly pathetic. "

    Stupidly hilarious movie:

    Hey JR, we're serious about this in the Lower 48. We even have a Hall of Fame basketball player with giant shoes involved.

    "Like maple syrup, Canada's evil oozes over the United States."

    And, JR, if you really want to pay homage to Canadian Bacon, please post in English and French.
