Re: “Strathy Language Unit . . .” Issue #2-2011, p. 14

I read the lovely accolade to the Strathy Language Unit's work in perpetuating Canadian English for the past 30 years. So it was with great amusement that on the very next page I found an article titled, "New honor for Queen's paleontologist."

This ranks up there with the sign I saw in a Toronto Rona store 10 years ago which read, "Rona, Proudly Canadian", and right under it was a another sign saying, "Garden Center." Keep us smiling.
