Canadian Prime Minister Takes Hard Line On Nationalism

Nova Scotia [AP]  In a stunning move, Canadian Prime Minister d’Gorthar calls for a vote for complete Canadian separation from the U.K.
“We have been lead by the hand for quite long enough,” d’Gorthar said in his rallying speech, “and it is high time that we stood on our own, without having to be upheld by Britain, or the U.S.” State Department officials declined to comment on this apparent slight to American support for Canada.
