    I always imagined that your wall would have something on it like “Post Bills” on it. Witty and economical.

    But then again, the future of Canada and economics kind of go hand in hand.

    Wow… you are so right about the drinking… and the reloading… and the crying…. how did you know????? *MissE looks around suspiciously…*

    As far as the politics stuff is concerned I think you’ve got it right about the whole “hope” deal. It’s what we Aussies don’t really have about our current leader. Seriously. Have you seen photos of this guy? His eyebrows are the most charis,atic part of him. And he has his head so far up the USA’s arse… Don’t even get me started about the way he seems to view the people of our country… you know the ordinary ones who earn less than $100,000.

    ARGH!!!!

    *MissE goes off to mumble inarticulately about the state of the world and the questionable origins of politicians*

    I have to say that the whole “people who have money are greedy and stingy with it” generalization is kinda unfair. There are a ton of people who are willing to give more than their fare share to help out.

    As for the Bilingual nation… I have no clue as to how it’s in any way easier, but I guess you guys have always just made it work. Canada wouldn’t be Canada to me without everything being in French too…

    Nice post — the romanticism on Trudeau and his offspring a little too heavy — Justin will need to prove himself as his father did (love him or hate him). Personally I really like some of the things he accomplished — Charter of Rights and Freedoms ( http://www.charterofrights.ca) some others such as a huge fiscal deficit not so great.

    jazz: Thanks. Canadian history tells of some great politicians. Recent years have been pretty bleak though.

    jurgen: Oooooh. Le talent!

    janet: They really do. I also have a Nerf basketball hoop. Though I think that says more about me than it does about the country.

    misse: Sadly my only images of Aussie politicians are formed from that episode of The Simpsons where the PM is floating on an inner tube and drinking beer. I kinda like that though.

    stormin’: Yeah, I was generalizing. There are definitely lots of people with money that give back. My views are coloured by being from a region that had it’s major industry collapse. And a region that sends a lot of the very workers that drill for said oil.

    grenwolde: I agree about Justin having to prove himself. Definitely. As for the romanticism… That’s me, I suppose. And it was the point of this post. Isn’t the concept of hope kind of romantic by it’s very nature?
