McLellan or whatever her name is "advised all canadians
to avoid travelling to the gulf of mexico states".
Do ya think??
I was planning on taking my canoe down there and going
on a tour of new orleans with an AK-47 and lots of hambone.
Seriously though..........I would expect the Canadian
gov't to help in any way they can.
We canadians could stand for our lame gov't to "do the
right thing" as spike lee says and help out these unfortunate souls.
Idiot army engineers and city works didn't invest enough
money to make the levees withstand more than a category
3 hurricane. Should of coughed up the dough, taken lessons
from the dutch and you wouldn't have the widespread chaos
you have down there.
Best of Luck New Orleans.....All I have to worry about
up here is the coming winter and the french factor......I think I can handle it as I do every year.
How do I handle it.......drink alot of beer!!

After a certain point it is cost prohibitive to plan for "worst case scenarios" so I wouldn't be too hard on the Corps of Engineers. Its a bit harder to be forgiving of the State and City government. They should have called for evacuations much sooner. That is what radar is for, eh? As far as Molson Canadian is concerned I only wish they sold it down here in the People's Republic of Kalifornia. Good to the last drop as I had it up in the frozen north. BTW, its not so much the Canadian people per se, as we well know there are plenty of fine conservatives up north, but if I hear another pin-head blaming this all on us not signing Kyoto, I'll puke. You Canadians keep your loonies up north and we'll take care of ourselves. No hard feelings whatsoever. All we need to do to pay for this is to quit sending our hard earned tax dollars overseas for foreign aid. That will pay for the whole deal without too much problem. Of course the dictators in Egypt, Pakistan and elsewhere may find their citizens get restless when they are not being bought off, but that is their problem, not ours.
