    Thanks for the maple syrup Canada!

    • You’re welcome! Also you’re welcome for baby pablum, insulin, the telephone, standard time zones, ginger ale, snowmobiles, electric wheelchairs, in-car heaters, SONAR, plexi-glass, basketball and 5 pin bowling… (and some other things, as well). Canadians are very innovative.

        Now you’re just bragging ;-). Can you recommend any good Canadian authors or poets?

      • Well, of course there’s Alice Munro, who just won the Nobel Prize for Literature yesterday… 😉

        If you like historical fiction there’s C. C. Humphreys or Jack Whyte- they both live and write here in BC. If you like thrillers Michael Slade is another BC author. Former BC author Alan Bradley write a charming series of nostalgic mysteries set in England. Gail Anderson-Dargatz writes about my local area. Then there are the famous Ontario writers like Margaret Atwood.

        Poets- Susan Musgrave, Leonard Cohen, Gary Geddes, Garry Gottfriedson, George Bowering
