Spotted Owls are deadsy Pierre.

I spent half mylife on the Canadian border and the other half in the Mexican border..
Love the people, but not always fond of the Governments.
Not fond of Mexico or Canada at the moment.

Trouble is brewing to the south
Don’t forget who the real driving forces were behind NAFTA - George HW Bush and Bill Clinton

Most Canadians and even Acadians aint so sure about Quebec...
