QUOTE OF THE DAY
"If one tells the truth, one is sure, sooner or later, to be found out."
- Oscar Wilde
FOCUS ON CANADA
On this day in 1870 (140 years ago), Manitoba became Canada's fifth province. So congratulations to all Manitobans from a dyed-in-the-wool Torontonian. See, we Torontonians aren't so bad. Give us a break. I even want an NHL team to return to Winnipeg.
I would also like to say that although I have never visited Manitoba, I plan to get there eventually. My goal is to visit all ten provinces and the North. I have already been to eight provinces. The two remaining are Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
And this Torontonian would like to thank the province of Manitoba for giving us The Guess Who and Winnie the Pooh.
Last night was a bad sports night for me. The Blue Jays lost badly to the dreaded Boston Red Sox. They did not play well at all. Then, Roberto and the Vancouver Canucks lost to the Chicago Black Hawks.
