Are even the Senators of the 'Harper Government' sock puppets? Lately you know its Friday in Canada when you can expect a another brain-wave press release from the Prime Ministers Office. They always sneak them out on the slow news days or when they think you and I aren't really focused in and listening.

The whole idea of ditching the beaver for the polar bear is totally insane. Many of us Canadians with more than half a brain, i.e., those of us that are not Tory's, prefer not to have our National symbols dinked with in any manner or fashion, at any time.
