Default What good are 250,000,000 more people

Except for a huge upset in the last cross country race tomorrow, the US will end up with 25 medals and Canada with 24 medals. What good do all the extra folks amount to in US? US Olympic Comittee probably outspends the entire Canadian National Budget (ok, maybe not under Martin ). Of course, US did get as many hockey medals as Canada this year and also won our first curling medal. Maybe things wouldn't be too bad if we could just send all of our skiers north of the border.

If it's any consolation Marc... this is a record year for medals for Canada.

Considering how much winter we endure up here you'd think we'd be better at this stuff.

Actually Marc, we had a Bake Sale to benefit our Canadian Olympic athletes.

Now we want a navy, so it's a rummage sale this time. (Those dinghys are expensive.....) I hear they want to base the ship in Calgary.
