Hi Girls!! Thanks for your responses! I get a warm feeling knowing there are other passionately Canadian people out there!!
Yes our authors, musicians, actors, comedians, journalists are amazing- and so many people aren't aware they are Canadian!!
I was disappointed when I heard Michael J Fox say he had become an American (now of course I don't mean its disappointing in the sense that he is American ) but I just think it is sad to cut such a profound tie with your home country when its not really necessary. The stars who do that say it is to save on taxes- a sad reason in my humble opinion.
So we should run the country. I will take the west coast, Alisa you can can oversee the Maritimes , Tina the prairies are yours and Sarah - I pronounce you the leader of Ontario. We can have our first conference here in Victoria (lots of good lowfat food of course). Here on the "wet" coast my office will only be opened twice a week for four hours- I close completely on sunny days- and I must not be interrupted while at my yoga class or while sipping my Starbucks coffee on one of my two hour lunch breaks!! Feel free to establish your own rules guys!!
You think you're not ever going to be able to eat another thing, but alas, you will find yourself feeling strangely peckish around teatime. The more you eat, the more you want. That's the way it goes."
