Newfoundlanders and their ‘passports’ of convenience

I guess the standards of what makes good op-ed fodder is not much different in Moncton than in Edmonton. Apparently, Lorne Gunter, senior columnist at the Edmonton Journal, thinks that his role in life is to crap on Atlantic Canadians. I usually skip over his “columns” but when I glanced and saw that his new line of thinking is that Newfoundlanders are no different than the Lebanese and their Canadian ‘passports of convenience’, I was curious and read the whole piece.

I’ll let you read it. It shows the depth of analysis coming out of Alberta these days.

    Overheard at an elitist political gathering in Calgary I attended a few yrs back:

    “Did Atlantic Canadians ever consider farming their organs to “have” provinces,” said he with a western smerk.

    “Are you f&*ing serious?” said I, preparing to take him outside for a once over.

    “Ok, Ok, that was a little over the top, but how else are you guys to get off EI?” said he.

    “Easy” said I, as I quickly made my way towards the punch bowl so as to cool down.

    You can’t make this stuff up, folks.
