A Happy Dominion Day (or "Canada Day") to all of the W's from Canada! The benefit of living in Ottawa; no shortage of stuff to do! My plans; going out with the fiance to grab some Beaver Tails and ~POUTINE! After that probably just walking around and seeing if anything itneresting is going on. She does want to go to a free concert at the NAC, so that'll likely happen as well.

On Canada Day, I worked a midnight shift, so I spent most of it sleeping. En route to work, I checked out a couple of celebrations downtown (I had a few minutes to kill waiting for a bus) and then caught some of the fireworks...they were kinda sorta viewable from my workplace.
It's not. The article says "where some nationalists are quick to take offense at what they see as unfair treatment by the country's English-speaking majority". By "nationalists" they're likely speaking of "sepratists", those people who somehow think all of Quebec's problem will go away if they leave the country to make their own.
Seriously, poutine is awesome. Every REAL Canadian knows this (or at least respects this).
