If you follow my little dig there, I don't take the Booing thing too seriously, have you ever been to any of the Pro (NHL, CFL etc) Battle of Albertaís?
It happens, I was just poking a bit of fun, in light of some of the more serious topics of late, I just want to let my hair down, well at least as much as a Number 1 will allow.
We have some political issues that need to be ironed out at higher levels, but in all reality, what three countries have it so good. North America, regardless of some of the issues is in a better situation than most of the other continents, other than Australia.
Most of the people I do contract work with and for are Americans, initially they were somewhat skeptical of Canadian abilities, however, with some exposure they are very happy my skill set and with me.
When I travel, I donít get high and mighty nor separate myself from yanks, but I do carry some extra Canuck Flags for them to sew onto kit. I never was a fan of us and them, no matter what the situation, just do the job and get on with it. My best military experiences are with Americans, and seeing as I have family stateside, I really donít get to wrapped up over what side of the border is what.
Now that I have got that out the way, I think if we want to get a gauge of how Americanís will think of us based upon the Corporate Memory mode, make sure you watch 60 Minutes on Sunday. Judging by the Midnight Oil being burned on the Hill tonight, I think a few people are concerned.
Michael, you are one of a handful of people in here for whom I watch for responses, so no offense taken, just keep the sights lined up on the target, good shooting, my back side deserved it.
