We're in the midst of an election in Quebec and the whole separation issue has raised its ugly head again.

Are they like the Catalonians in Spain? I'm told they want to be an independent country, but will demand full financial support from their former government. #wtf

Glad I could help educate you on all things Canadian.

Ha, you've been following tho story, I see. Yes, the Partie Quebecois leader has said if Quebec separates they would continue to use the Canadian currency. She also say us Anglos can visit. That was nice of her, eh?
So that's what North Korean voting machines look like... I was wondering about the 100% margin.
So I'll have to disguise myself as a respected Quebecois next time I try to visit? (Can I borrow your fedora?)

In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
