Dispatch from Canada: 146th Birthday Edition

full

 

We’ve got our flaws too, of course.

We literally have no abortion law, which means it’s easier to get one than a gun, even at the nine-month mark.

There’s no death penalty. And try getting an MRI, unless you’re a cat.

Our cops are increasingly corrupt, if not downright fascist. (Don’t be fooled by the propaganda about the noble, virtuous Mountie…)

We have this unelected Senate thing (long story) and a dorky constitution, especially compared to yours.

And don’t get me started on Quebec.

There are times when I hate living here, especially when it looks like our next prime minister might be this dingbat.

But those times come up less often than they used to.

So I hope you’ll check out my weekly recap – good and bad – of what’s going on in Canada.

To play around with that old saying:

Allow us to serve as a good example -- or a fair warning.
