    "As recently as 2009, Canadian Tourism Commission spokesperson conceded that "Canada has had a kind of vanilla pudding image -- safe and nice, like the girl next door -- not the hot chick you'd want to go on vacation with." In other words, we're perceived as "uninteresting.""

    But ya are uninteresting, Blanche, but ya are uninteresting.

    And that's their tourism commission!!!! icon_eek.gif THEIR COMMISSION!

    "But the Museum of Canadian History doesn't have to be. Some U-words to consider:

    Uncovering the sagas from Canadians outside the umbrella of the dominant culture

    Unearthing the stories that we don't already know

    Unshackling ourselves from the colonial narrative that permeates the image we have of ourselves, and the image the rest of the world has of us

    Uncorking the struggles our ancestors faced and their innovative coping methods, allowing even the umpteenth-generation Canadian to understand the writhes faced by new Canadians.

    Unleashing the tribulations and the triumphs that make Canadian History surprising, alluring, dramatic and entertaining."

    Oh brother! Snooze city! Seriously, if you have to try that hard, you've gotta be bor-ring!

    I think you're in an unhealthy co-dependent relationship with Canada.
    You wanna bang the girl next door and smack her ass as you go. icon_twisted.gif
