12 Days of Liberal Bans - Day 5

Shhhh ... Liberal Party Plans to Ban Poutine in Quebec

Don't tell anyone ... but sources tell me that the Liberals will announce that immediately following the January 23 election, should they be re-elected, a total ban on Poutine will be put into effect.

Liberal insiders blame it on Paul Martin's ever expanding waistline, and his obsession with every dupanier and chipwagon in Quebec.

"Sheila had him on a diet over the summer in order to get him to loose some poundage", stated the party inside. "It didn't work, and now his stomach is so large that he topples over all the time" lamented the source. "It's caused brain damage and we are finding it difficult to hide it from the public. One day he's a Liberal, then an NDP ... we just never know anymore".

A mainstay of the Quebec diet, critics caution that banning Poutine is certain to result in another FLQ crisis.

"Now where can I get some popcorn and beer".

You are a trip, my girl! And so is this music.
I wish you were an American. It would be a real treat to watch you bash Ted Kennedy, Howard Dean, Barbara Boxer, etc. The list is way to long! ROTFALMAO

Aizylnne and all:
I have a theory about Canada's geography and voting which you may not have contemplated:

Technically speaking, about 55% of Canada's population actually lives SOUTH of the 49th parallel (and, to be honest, about 53% of Canadians live south of Seattle which is at 47°37'35" N - 122°19'59" W). That's right, dear readers: ALL major Canadian population centers in "Southeast Canada" are situated south of the 49th parallel (Quebec City, Montreal, Ottawa, etc.) Almost 16 million Canadians live in the "Windsor to Quebec City corridor", all of which is situated south of Seattle, and another million more live in the Maritimes south of Seattle. St. John's, Newfoundland is almost exactly the latitude of Seattle.

The voting patterns of what I would call "Southeast Canada" in Federal elections may be substatially different than those of Canadians living north of the 49th parallel!

I'd like to see more discussion of this, since it gives new meaning to Canadians' discussion of "the South". With the exception of hard-core left wing concentrations in Vancouver and perhaps in Winnipeg and Regina, I suspect that voters in "South Canada" tend to elect to be much more left-wing in their voting preferences than those in Canada North of the 49th.

Any thoughts? I've got some thoughts at my blog...
