What I don't know about Canada's government could fill a large book. I should probably get around to reading that book someday. But from my partially uninformed opinion, I thought that it was hardcore to have Michaƫlle Jean as head of state when the Queen is not in Canada. That regard was tarnished to a significant degree when Her Excellency failed to perform one of her rare non-ceremonial duties and didn't stand up to the Prime Minister's highly dubious power-grasping shenanigans over this past winter.

Today, that regard is rusted clean through, with the story that seems like someone accidentally crossed their wires and dropped a story from The Onion into the news feed that Ms. Jean gutted a baby seal and ate its heart, evidently in protest of EU bans on hunting methods. Alas, if she wishes to be in solidarity with commercial seal hunters, then I will agree to think of her as I think of them.

How do you know you're on the wrong side of an issue? There are no hard and fast rules, but a really good sign is when Wonderella and I are in complete agreement.
