that's interesting...

i'd like to see some pics if you find them.

Good stuff, Dave.

I never thought I would see the day when Canadians would propose a Commonwealth Retrolution.

I actually heard someone on the radio call-in show here the other day declare that Canada needs to revert to the British North America Act and dump its Constitution - because the Charter of Rights and Freedoms protects gays and lesbians from discrimination. He said he wants the BNA Act back so that the government can legally bar gays and lesbians from entering public buildings or receiving any kind of public societal benefits - a gay man with a library card is disturbing to this guy!

Even though people think we're a liberal nation (and we are in a lot of ways), we still have some pretty cementheaded people up here.

yeah, you don't see the union jack around alberta. it's not even on our provincial flag, which is too bad, 'cause the union jack is the freakin' coolest flag ever.

'tis true.

i often think the alberta flag should just be a rag soaked in crude oil.

You guys don't have a snarling lion on your flag, though. Clearly Nova Scotia has the most badass provincial flag of all:
