    Well, there goes our refuge once 'Murica goes tits up. Canada's falling apart before our very eyes.
    First, a town plans to ban poutine from its hockey arenas (http://network.nationalpost.com/np/blogs/posted/archive/2009/02/25/gatineau-considers-poutine-ban-like-banning-rainbows-and-happiness.aspx) and now I read that the maple syrup industry is seeing its costs go through the roof (http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/Price+sweet+treat+skyrockets/1334062/story.html) and fears it might be in trouble.

    WTF? What's next? Tim Horton's going out of business? Anne Murray returning to the recording studio? Michael Vick to the CFL?

    I'll buy Timbits on my way to work to keep Tim Horton's afloat. Least I can do.

    I always loved ski trips to Canada because I could buy poutine.
    So damn good.

    America has a liberal government, Canada has a conservative. Are Canadian liberals threatening to run south when they aren't hating on Dion?

    "Harvests were poor in 2007 and 2008 because the spring weather was colder than usual, which inhibited sap flow. That, in turn, meant less syrup, and higher prices."

    Global cooling strikes again!

    Dion is no longer a factor. As for the Fiberals' new leader, Michael Ignatieff, he's only as "liberal" as necessary at any given time. Kinda like the Fiberals' patron saint, Pee-yair Truedough.

    As far as I can tell, Ignatieff's claim to leadership is that he's the exact opposite of Dion on everything.
