New Bad Canadians


SpyVsSpyWell if we aren’t spying on Brazilian mining  endeavours we’re losing dogs in airports.  Are we Canadians shedding our goody-goody image? First we had news that Canadian spies were poking their noses into Brazilian mining companies causing the ambassador to be called up on the carpet. It seems this shocking revelation stems from documents leaked by the one and only Edward Snowden.  Once again Mr. Snowden has illustrated that, great shock though it may be, spies spy.  Yep, they’re probably looking at you bank statements right now. It’s what they do, that’s why they’re called spies.

Then at San Francisco airport a woman from Ohio was sending a greyhound to its new home in Victoria B.C. when a thoughtful attendant decided to give “Larry” a bit of a stroll. Being a greyhound Larry was able to slip out of the leash and take to the hills. Aside from a snippy email to the local CBS affiliate that was supposed to remain internal, this incident fits the “shit happens” file.

Air Canada certainly has lots of experience looking for lost items, mind you most of them aren’t capable of running like the wind.

So while we Canadians bask in our new-found and less than perfect reputation, the moral of the story is, if it’s called a greyhound, you should probably put it on a Greyhound! As for Larry I hope they find him, Air Canada certainly has lots of experience looking for lost items, mind you most of them aren’t capable of running like the wind.
