I have been asked a few times why I Blog on matters involving the US when it is really not my business. Yes I have been told to Buzz Off. And at times rightly so. I now have an answer as to why, thanks to my hero (as my wife calls him) Pierre Elliot Trudeau, and Monty Python.
Pierre Elliot Trudeau remarked that Canada’s relationship with the United States is like that of “a mouse in bed with an elephant…no matter how friendly…one is affected by every twitch and grunt.”
My less than eloquent response drawing on influences from John Cleese in Monty Pythons Holy Grail – Remember one day that elephant is going to “fart our general direction” then we are all screwed.
