    I figured it was only the select few who had such privilege with theses new rules.
    I am very humbled, and would like to thank...
    Or maybe due to being Canadian this new smart system realizes that we are so much more liked,respected and trusted around the world that its a given we would be on an internet site ;)

    •  That's why I sew a Canadian flag on by backpack (3+ / 0-)

      when I travel abroad. :0

      The National Lampoon magazine use to have a feature called Canadian Corner. I remember one article from the 70's  that complained about Americans sewing Canadian flags on their backpacks when traveling in Europe. The problem, according to Canadian Corner, was that Americans occasionally sober up, climb out of the ditch and walk into a museum, and it was giving the Canadians a bad name. :)
