    Honestly, I disagree with this. If someone doesn't vote out of laziness - well, that's one thing. But someone can make a conscious effort not to go & vote for any of the available candidates - it's the same as going to the ballot box and spoiling a ballot but without wasting the piece of paper. And if a person pays taxes and contributes to Canadian society, as all Canadians do, that person should be able to voice his/her opinion as to what the leaders of the country are doing with his/her money, whether he/she voted or not.

    A little Canadian Humour:

    Here's an e-mail I got today that made me laugh:

    If your local Dairy Queen is closed from
    September through May,
    You may live in Canada .

    If someone in a Home Depot store
    Offers you assistance and they don't work there,
    You may live in Canada .

    If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time,
    You may live in Canada .

    If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation
    With someone who dialed a wrong number,
    You may live in Canada .

    If 'Vacation' means going anywhere
    South of Detroit for the weekend,
    You may live in Canada .

    If you measure distance in hours,
    You may live in Canada .

    If you know several people
    Who have hit a deer more than once,
    You may live in Canada .

    If you have switched from 'heat' to 'A/C'
    In the same day and back again,
    You may live in Canada .

    If you can drive 90 km/hr through 2 feet of snow
    During a raging blizzard without flinching,
    You may live in Canada .

    If you install security lights on your house and garage,
    But leave both unlocked,
    You may live in Canada .

    If you carry jumpers in your car
    And your wife knows how to use them,
    You may live in Canada .

    If you design your kid's Halloween costume
    To fit over a snowsuit,
    You may live in Canada .

    If the speed limit on the highway is 80 km --
    You're going 90 and everybody is passing you,
    You may live in Canada .

    If driving is better in the winter
    Because the potholes are filled with snow,
    You may live in Canada .

    If you know all 4 seasons:
    Almost winter, winter, still winter,
    And road construction,
    You may live in Canada .

    If you have more miles
    On your snow blower than your car,
    You may live in Canada .

    If you find 2 degrees 'a little chilly',
    You may live in Canada .

    Heh! This one made me laugh (well, they all made me laugh) because I recall posting a pet peeve a couple of years ago when there was still a pet peeve thread regarding people standing in a urine scented bus shelter when it was 0, sunny and windless. Seriously, where are you from to be that afraid of weather I'm still wearing the Crocs in.
    All I wanted was a 45, a stinking 45 - the record or the gun. I'd even settle for the damn malt liquor. - Al Bundy.

    Re: How many Canadians are there here?

    Sorry to double-post. Different topic:

    How many Canadians programmed their VCR to tape shows yesterday, but didn't get the proper shows taped, because your recorder automatically changed to daylight savings time because it was automatically programmed in like we used to have it in Canada? I did. Now that we're going to do it later on the same day as the USA, I'll have to manually change things. But last night, my Canadian machine worked on Canadian DST. Missed lots of shows. Dang.

    Re: How many Canadians are there here?

    Someone sent me an email about this but it seems to only affect Canada so I thought I should share with ya'll.

    Melamine Scare In Milk Chocolate Coins-Truth!

    Melamine Scare In Pirate's Gold Milk Chocolate Coins-Truth!
    Summary of the eRumor:
    A Halloween warning not to eat Sherwood brand Pirate's Gold milk chocolate coins because they could contain melamine, a substance that could be toxic.
    The Truth:
    This warning is true in Canada only.

    October 8, 2008 the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) issued a warning that "the public not to consume, distribute, or sell the Sherwood Brands Pirate's Gold Milk Chocolate Coins described below. This product is being recalled due to positive test results for melamine conducted by the CFIA."

    Melamine is an industrial chemical compound that some Chinese milk-based product manufacturers have added to their products in an attempt to artificially inflate the reading for protein levels. Chronic exposure to melamine can cause a number of severe health issues including bladder or kidney stones, acute kidney failure, reproductive damage, respiratory irritation and bladder cancer.

    Because the Pirate's Gold chocolate coins are only marketed in Canada, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not issued a recall. Melamine is a real health threat, however, and the FDA has posted a general warning about this substance found in food products imported from China. Click for FDA Warning

    On October 24, 2008, the Sherwood company issued a statement on their website regarding their "commitment to test and assure the safety of all our products", and "Immediately upon the issuance of a warning by FDA about possible melamine contamination in milk-containing products from China we began to work with independent labs to confirm our products are free of melamine".

    I've read about it in the papers. I believe they said that the products were mainly sold at Costco. And they said to be careful of any chocolate coins, as people who haven't heard the news might have broken the bag down to hand out one or two coins (not sure if the maker's label would be on the individual coins).

    Thanks, ACF, we do have some chocolate coins (no idea where they're from) in the candy jar that I'm going to toss out.
