Bonjour, Regarding the recent rambling about the fact that the US is alone and has no support from other countries when it is in need. Now, I may not be one individual who could be qualified as a true all canadian patriot, however I will say that regarding Canada it seems that sometimes some of our american friends have a rather short memory span. Simply remember 1980 in Iran. It is clearly the Canadian ambassador to that country who directly helped (risking his own life) in the protection and release of many US citizen hostages. Don t you remember the TV footage showing Jimmy Carter speaking to Joe Clark to thank him and almost litterately kissing his feet? Only a couple of hours after the event, drivers whose car bore a Canadian license plate, driving in the US, were served free gas and free food, typical of US citizens enthusiasm The US has friends and Canada has many time stood besides her in time of need. Now where is that old Canadian fart Ted when you need him? Tata, Robert (Unchevalier sans blason) ________________________________________________________________ GET INTERNET ACCESS FROM JUNO!
