Too high and mighty to share an umbrella?

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh begin their nine-day tour Photo: GETTY Source: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/theroyalfamily/7859702/Queen-met-with-torrential-rain-on-royal-visit-to-Canada.html

I noticed that in all of the news footage of her visit to Halifax today, the Queen walked under her crazy umbrella while Michaelle Jean, our Governor General, had to walk in the rain.

I know that she is the Queen, so she doesn’t have to share her umbrella… but it would have been nice.

FIFA World Cup 2010: England vs. Germany

England’s loss today was probably the most disappointing match so far.  They played terribly, and deserved to lose, but still totally disappointing.  I don’t know who to cheer for now.

Happy Victoria Day!

Today is the day that we party in celebration of a Monarchy that many people think we should disassociate from.  They claim that Canada has no need for the traditions of Britain, and that the Monarchy has no place here.

But I don’t think most of these people realize the consequences… For starters, we’d have to give up this long weekend!  How could we justify having the day off, if we we’re against the celebration which that holiday was created for?

I say, keep the Monarchy and bring on the beer and BBQ!  If you don’t like the Queen, just get another beer and chill-out.
