    I've never really gotten a satisfactory answer to this question -- I'd definitely be interested in infiltrating Canuckistan :D -- but I'm pretty sure there's a lot of legal hoops to jump through.

    Of course, you could just marry a hoser and it gets a lot easier. That's what my friend did. He's living near one of Flash's old haunts now.

    Wouldn't five nights a week be Wednesday through Sunday?

    This might be one of those gigs where you really get a leg up by proofing the ad for them and bringing it to the interview.
