Welcome! I frequently read the Canadian blog Small Dead Animals. You will find many similar sentiments here.

Welcome to the forum robins.
"A strict observance of the written laws is doubtless one of the high duties of a good citizen, but it is not the highest. The laws of necessity, of self-preservation, of saving our country when in danger, are of higher obligation. To lose our country by a scrupulous adherence to written law, would be to lose the law itself, with life, liberty, property and all those who are enjoying them with us; thus absurdly sacrificing the end to the means."

I'd be interested to know who left the breadcrumb at SDA. Anyone wanna confess? I've never visited there before just a moment ago. Looks like a bookmarker.

In what part of Canada do you reside? I ask because nearly all of my family lives there.

That would be moi.  And yes, SDA is a great site.  I recommend everyone check it out often.  It's part of my daily rotation.

I have just retired after 32 years in the fire service.  I was career Fire Chief in Northern Ontario, (north of lake superior) in a town called Marathon...  40 below in January.  Then moved to the Niagara Region of Ontario in 1999,and was a Fire Chief there for 12 years.   I'm originally from central north Ontario.

I've lived in Alberta and Quebec during my time in the military, (infantryman)

That's about it.

John Florida, it just went up today to $1.34 a liter. Which is roughly a quart.  Our dollars are at about par..  this price is Niagara region, my youngest daughter lives in Marathon in northern Ontario, add 10 to 15 cents a liter to the price.   The problem is, 85%  of the price is taxes., and the Ontario Premiere  is an effing greenie, and wants to turn Ontario into a colder version of California.

Trapeze, check out the Wildrose party during the upcoming election, they're pretty libertarian, plus that, Brad Wall and the Saskatchewan party has the lefties in a dither in eastern Canada.  We have high hopes for them both.  Its great country out west, I'd move but my wife won't.
