  1. That has been done. Canadian tv has been doing this on the slaves who came to freedom and settled in Nova Scotia after the 13 colonies rebelled. Lawrence Hill wrote the novel The Book of Negroes and it was made into a drama by the CBC, I think. BTW, Lawrence Hill is the brother of singer Dan Hill. Don't hold it against him.
  2. As far as I recall the explorers/settlers of Greenland and Newfoundland were first in Iceland to escape retribution for violent behaviour in Norway. Even in Iceland they got into trouble and kept going west.
  3. I see Pierre Poutine is reaping a bit of the whirlwind he helped to sow. The right-wing loons are going after his wife for being an immigrant.
  4. When this goes to the Supreme Court, will even the most conservative originalist tie themselves into knots to justify it?
  5. In 2019 we were in Cuba over the Xmas holidays and all the talk then was about the vote for changing the constitution to recognize same sex marriage and to update the divorce laws. I guess Covid must have delayed the vote. The consensus from the locals we talked to was that both amendments would pass but the divorce amendment was the one getting the most friction.
  6. Remember the band Klaatu? they had a song Anus of Uranus.
  7. After43 years, any original Guard members are quite old. I suspect the newer ones see if as a well paid job but is it one worth dying for? They could melt away like the Afghan army.
  8. If you have an old fashioned Mercator projection map draw a straight line between Munich and Toronto. If it goes over the Maritimes be prepared for rough weather enroute. An actual globe and a piece of string will work also.
  9. Maybe his Putin impersonation did not impress the rest of the Party.
  10. If only if there was a surplus of carbon dioxide just waiting to be used somewhere easily accessible...
  11. Monarchy is when idiots don't even run and still win.
  12. Wanting to live a life is not selfish. I hope you do get a chance to get away and live. Best of luck.
  13. So the latest outrage on the monarchist front seems to be that our PM had the nerve to actually sing before Liz was fully planted. Was he expected to mortify his flesh instead? Some people really need to get a life.
