Highball du nord

Take off!
To the Great White North
Take off!
It's a beauty way to go

-- Bob & Doug McKenzie

Back in 1992, I spent three weeks in Québec -- Montréal's Old City, to be specific -- learnin' how to speak good French. Ever since then, I've been particularly attuned to things that happen in the Great White North.

Like this:

In the fiscal year ended March 31, 2008, Canadians boosted alcohol sales by 4.3 per cent, funnelling more than $18.8-billion into the economy. Sales of red wine more than doubled and white wine experienced a 44-per-cent hike.

I'm ready to go back North. Who wants to come with?!

When you say Geddy I say Lee, Geddy Lee. Nice "Take off" bit. Canada is good in that it puts up with all our bullshit.
