Nine Long Years

Days after you signed the secretive trade treaty with China I continued to wonder if you were responsible for any other recent clandestine changes to the lives of Canadians. It seemed possible that in your quest to water down our heritage that you’d called for the end of Canadian Tire Money or brokered the deal between Burger King and Tim Horton’s. It seems obvious that you split up our royal couple, Chad and Avril, who were invaluable beacons of hope in such dark times. I know they’re not Canadian but it has been bothering me – are you behind the steadily inflating prices at Value Village as well? And it’s probably also your fault that the Toronto Maple Leafs were voted North America’s worst sports franchise of 2014. Actually, that’s pretty funny. Kudos on that one.
