33. I suspect...
...that large numbers of Canadians in the other states would be simply THRILLED to throw a big "going away" bash for Quebec, with plenty of Labatt's.

I bet they'd even manage to restrain themselves from saying "Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out, eh!"

There's plenty of insular neanderthals there, too, and plenty of shit-stirrers who love to foment conflict just for the fun of it.

Hopefully cooler adult heads will prevail on all fronts. There's plenty of them, too.

optimistically,
Bright
