His Royal Highness Charles, Prince of Wales and his wife Camilla Duchess of Cornwall landed in NFLD/LAB. last evening to start an 11 day tour of the country. I am a Monarchist so that states pretty well how I feel about this visit. For those out there who do not like the idea I would like to remind you that Canada is a Monarchy and has been one since it's founding. First with the French and then with the British. It is part of our History and our Heritage and what makes us unique on the North American Continent.

Camac, you misused the 'eh'!

It's to follow a statement, requesting agreement.

"It's great to be Canadian, eh?"

I was reading an article in the Huffington Post about when we die we go to and alternate Universe. Something to do with being energy and that whole physics thing. If it is true there had better be a Canada there or I'm not going.
