Englebert Slaptyback: Dear schlubmitter,

There is no apostrophe in "Tim Hortons".

So there's more than one? Tim himself, that is.

Egoy3k: BrotherJew: doglover: All of Canada's soldier is on high alert.

My uncle was in the Army back in the 60s stationed in Alaska.  Someone made a wisecrack about the Canadian Army, and he spent about a half hour talking about how he'd crossed paths with some guys from their army, and basically said that they were a tough and nasty bunch that he wouldn't have dared fark around with.

I thought it was an interesting story.  Of course, I heard it 20 years ago and that uncle is dead now, so my memory of the complete story was drank away a long time ago.

I've been informed on many occasions that Canada has an odd mixture of excellent soldiers with world class training and skills who are using shiat equipment.  I really don't know but the history of our military and our recent performance seems to back that assertion up.


When you put it that way, it makes sense why my Marines got along so well with the Canadian troops when we were in Haiti after the earthquake. We're the same way. World class fighting men with the equipment of a third world shiathole.

I've got some family and friends from Canada.  I've heard them joke about their military.  They're not joking about the quality of the men (and women) who serve in their military, it's self-effacing stuff about the equipment (like getting ripped off on a purchase of British subs) or the size of the military.

On the later, I was visiting Vancouver years ago and the military was displaying a couple light armored vehicles in the downtown before they were being deployed for some UN operation and people were joking "oh there is half our army on display".  Stuff like that.

As a Canadian, I'm embarrassed at the position we're taking on this. Then again, I'm embarrassed of just about everything we, as a country, do under the current "leadership". The PM just wants to be cool and relevant.

The equipment that Parliament buys is a goddamn joke. Either it's overpriced bullshiat that America's selling, or third-hand shiat from Britain or another of the Commonwealth countries.

To think that my grandfather was a shipwright.

To be fair, they were more than a little ripped off on those. Getting ripped off on a used sub purchase would be it not coming with life vests for the whole crew, not bloody catching fire as soon as it leaves the dealership like this POS.

Shiat man, I have to agree with the Harper government's stance on something?  Oh well, what's due is due.  Good job, boys.  Firm but polite stance on the issue, I approve.

Also, I have a neighbour who's a Major in the Canadian army.  He's a solid guy and he represents the country well.  So I would like to add my "fark you" to the chorus of "fark yous" that doglover is getting.

/But I also know he was saying it in good fun, so it's not a hateful "fark you", just a perfunctory one

Where do you think the name Stormtroopers comes from? The term "storm trooper" was first used by the Germans in the First World War to describe the Canadian troops that they had to fight against. Canadian troops were most feared by the Germans during the First World War, and the German army always prepared for the worst when an attack was spearheaded by the Canadian army. It took the Canadian troops, including my grandfather, to finally take Vimy Ridge in WWI: http://www.veterans.gc.ca/eng/remembrance/history/first-world-war/roa d -to-vimy-ridge/vimy4

Only on account of Quebec language laws. Apostrophes disappeared from Canadian brand names in the late Seventies at the insistence of the Quebec government, who wanted all business names to be in French.

The rules have since been relaxed, but Tim Hortons officially never regained its apostrophe. McDonald's Canada, by way of protest against Quebec nationalism, turned their apostrophe into a little Maple Leaf flag.

A battle which showed the brilliance of Canadian General Arthur Currie. Which Field Marshall Douglas Haig immediately claimed credit for. If British prime minister David Lloyd George had seen through that baloney and replaced Haig with Currie at that time, it is quite possible that the Americans would never have had to enter the war. Because IMO Currie was to the Allies in that war what Patton was to them in the next war.
