Happy Canadia :) Day all you Canadians!

(yes, I know it's Canada not Canadia. It's a joke. This one time back in 2003, I was really tired or nervous or something and I said to INTREPID something to the effect of, "You'd better find your passport so you can get back to Canadia." ...total Blond Moment.)

The British North America Act (BNA Act) was passed by the British Parliament in 1867 and came into effect July 1 of that year, bringing together the colonies of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Canada into a new political entity. The two divisions of the Province of Canada, formerly Upper and Lower Canada, became Ontario and Quebec respectively. The Act also made provision for the admission of additional provinces. Although it was a British statute, the BNA Act was drafted entirely by Canadians at the Quebec Conference of 1864 and passed without amendment. The preamble of the Act called for,

Actually, my passport expires on July 8th. I should get that renewed sometime, but I'm not planning any trips to the states until the Autumn.

Until a couple of years ago nobody cared about passports between the USA and Canada, but now it's a bit more important. Even when travelling by car.

(Remember... I post this out of love...)


Song: "Oh I Wish I Was Back In Old Canada."
MST3K Episode: 910- The Final Sacrifice


Mike: [telling a joke] ...and the drunk guy says, "I can't help being an idiot, I'm Canadian!"

Crow: [Laughs] You're right, they're so pathetic, Mike!

[Whistle blows, Servo comes in wearing Mountie uniform]

Servo: Enough! There's been too much Canada-bashing for far too long! I say, no more!

Mike: Don't you mean, "No more, eh"?

Crow: [Laughs] Good one, man! They are SO stupid!

Servo: Stop it now! Instead, let us offer our Northern brothers and sisters this song of tribute! [Music starts] Oh I wish I was back in old Canada. A land which I never shall lampoon. How I pine for the ice covering Lake Manitoba. And the beauty that is Saskatoon.

Mike: (I got one) Oh I wish I was stuck in the hills of Alberta. Drinking beer with some big dumb guy trapping fur. As he scraped and he chiseled all the moose dung off his boots.bI would learn that he's the Prime Minister.

Crow: Oh I wish I was in the land that gave us Peter Jennings. Alannis Morrisette, Mike Meyers too. No I take that back, I wouldn't go there even if you paid me. O Canada, you are a place I must eschew.

Servo: Now this is not in the spirit that I intended!

Mike: Oh, come on, give in, I mean, after all they gave us Ed the Sock---and Rush!

Crow: Yeah! What are you defending? They're such *feebs*!

Servo: (OK, I'll try.) Oh, I wish I was blowing up Prince Edward Island. And going on to bomb Ontario--ha ha! The destruction of Canada and all of its culture. Is by far my favo-rite scenario.

Mike: OK, now, that's a little strong

Servo: (No, you're right Mike! This is much more fun!) Just where the hell does Canada get off sharing a border. With countries far superior to it? Why, you lousy stinkin', Francophonic, bacon-lovin' bastards. Your country's just a giant piece of sh---

Mike: OK I THINK THAT'S ENOUGH!!!

Servo: (sobbing) I'm sorry! I have no sense of proportion! I'm a disgrace to my uniform!

Mike: That's OK, now calm down now---mustn't hate, mustn't hate...

Crow: At least so overtly.

Mike: Right. Must disguise our hate...just a little... We'll be right back. Shh...shh...it's OK now, Dudley.

Servo: Pardonnez-moi! Pardonnez-moi!

I don't have a song for you...

It's probably better that way. The song I posted wasn't all pro-canada. But it's a fun song from MST3k (oh do forgive me canadians).

I used to love that show MST3k Athena!! do you own any of the episodes? The only one I have so far is this reall, really cheesy and corny one called "Angels Revenge". Just think of how cheesey the 70's t.v. show Charlie's Angels was (no offence if you like it) and make this movie 500 times worse!

really, I must keep my eye out for that one! There is one that I know has a couple of Bond connections. I believe its called "Pumaman" ( a really, corny superhero one) which stars Donald Pleasence (not as Pumaman!) and features the same house that was used for Blaiton safe house in Living Daylights.

A belated happy Canada Day. Jeff007, since you're in London, have you ever driven over to the Freedom Festival on the Windsor-Detroit waterfront? I love Detroit, but I always end up having a better time on the Windsor side (no Detroit jokes, please).

I've never been over to see the Freedom Festival but it sounds interesting. I'm sure Windsor is great for Michigan people because if they are not 21 yet, they can just come over and take advantage of our nice 19 legal drinking and gambling age. :) The last time I was in Detroit was last summer when I made a visit to the Henry Ford Museum to see, what else, the James Bond displays.
