What's this all aboot, eh?
I couldn't quite get the phonetic spelling down for the Canadian pronounciation of "about"
If anyone out there has any knowledge of Canadian politics, I'd appreciate the insight! I don't quite understand how they run things up there...
But it looks like the liberal, anti-Bush, anti-U.S. government is "aboot" to be saacked
Here's an excerpt:
Canada's Conservatives, by contrast, are seen as much more receptive to improving relations with Washington, though a majority of Canadians opposed the war in Iraq and the policies of President Bush.
Conservative Party leader Stephen Harper favors tax cuts and opposed Martin's successful bill to legalize same-sex marriage throughout Canada. He would become prime minister if the Conservatives receive the most seats in Parliament.
"This is not just the end of a tired, directionless, scandal-plagued government," Harper said after Monday's vote. "It's the start of a bright new future for this country."
And I hope so!! I've always liked Canada. They have great beer AND they gave us hockey. But they've been leaning way too close to socialism and anti-U.S. behavior lately. Hopefully, we'll see better relations with our neighbor to the north soon.
Psst. Hi! Patriotette here. Trying to sneak past the Sage so she won't see me...
Michelle Malkin has a nice round-up and linky goodness for anyone interested in Canadian goings-on. (I, personally am bored to tears with Canadian stuff.)
