November 29, 2005
— Ace A huge political scandal, a fall of government, an election held during the holiday season -- mark your calendars, 29 November 2005 is the date upon which Canada nearly threatened to almost become somewhat close to marginally interesting.

She didn't, but it looks like she didn't have to.
What's most interesting is that even the NDP have decided to cancel the farcical Paul Martin Show this time 'round. I'm guessing the NDP think they have a shot at pulling Canada even further leftward domestically and into the EU's orbit internationally. The plan seems to be kill or split the "Grits", pull in stray lefties, and ally with Bloc Quebecois.

While in Edmonton, I ate at a place called Smitty's every night, and drank a superb micro-brew whose name now escapes me. Plus they had a waitress now that could have given a dead man a boner. This was a large factor in my decision to eat there every night. So Canada can muster delights to both the palate and the eye!

And somehow microbrew is involved.
This is a really informative thread, I'm learning a lot about Canadia, thanks guys.

On a little sojourn one day, they decided to order food from a lady street-vendor rather than have a sit down meal.
Dad started placing his order and the lady told him in French that she didn't speak English.
Dad turned to his bride and said, "The stupid bitch says she can't speak English." And he left, but not before he noticed the vendor lady turning many shades.
Apparently she could understand him just fine.

I'm with Monty. Edomonton is actually a pretty cool place. It's cowboy country. Plus they have this huuuge indoor mall, the world's largest, that helps them make it through the winter. Information on the mall can be found here.

Well, the water park is lame too, but if you live in Edmonton and you want to ride the waves indoors in February, it's a lot cheaper than a flight to Hawaii.

It was fun; this place had many of the same features as the Edmonton Mall. But, the Edmonton Mall is better.
I'll go back to dissing Canadians tomorrow. Tonight, I'm just sayin' that the Edmonton Mall is awesome.
