Many here on the forum have relatives living on the other side of the longest undefended border.


Does that make you my cousin, EH?
Now that's real fear.

Many of us Canadians have relatives living south of the border, mixing freely with our American neighbors. If those Canadians are all like my fun loving party animal relatives, those are the Canadians you gotta fear.

I have a confession:

The "Keep" side of my family came here to the U.S. via Canada...story being that London-dwelling great-great-etc-Aunt Emma went downtown one day never to return....supposedly turning up years later in Canada where she'd joined her long lost forbidden love, most likely named "Romeo Capulet-Montague" or something. But peace for the Lovers was not to be found even in Canada...Having to face the same terrible persecution there that their forbidden love had exposed them to in England, they then fled to the U.S.A. and lived happily ever after.

My personal opinion is that if any relative of mine went to Canada from England at all, it was whatchamightcall "less than voluntary". Great Britain's fabled Invitation to Emigrate-or-Else method of populating the colonies while at the same time ridding the Motherland of riffraff seems a more likely explanation for my family's presence in North America!

As the inscription on the Peace Arch says, "Children of a common Mother"

How scary is that?

Stomp'n Tom Connors has passed away.

A Canadian icon.
