"Five axiomatic propositions of Canadian Nationalism vis-a-vis the Americans:

1. Boy, we hate Americans.

2. We really do.

3. Really.

4. I'm not kidding. We really hate them.

5. So how come they never pay us any attention?"

--Will Ferguson, Why I Hate Canadians, Vancouver: Douglas & McIntyre, 1997, p.105.

Another blow to Chretien. I still don't really understand Canadian politics, but it looks as though things are getting more uncertain for Prime Minister Chretien. Last night, "one of Jean Chr├ętien's key Toronto organizers from the last Liberal leadership race has turned down the Prime Minister's personal request for help and is now publicly calling for Mr. Chr├ętien to resign." Certainly, most of the people to whom I talk are convinced that Chretien has overstayed his welcome. Who knows -- with a power strucggle within the Liberal party, Canada might once again become more than a one-party country.
