"We can't allow things that are inaccurate to stand." — The Word of Our Dan, February 19, 2008.

Take that, Canada!

The whole point of Glorious National Rally Of Unity And Unconditional Love And Admiration For Glorious Leader was, according to its organizers, to show Canada how serious "we" were about getting enough equalization to stand on our own two feet, or something.

It's all a little unclear.

Anyway, a big rally would generate all kinds of national attention and the federal government would have to sit up and take notice, and we're not going to take it any more and down with the causeway etc.

"We feel our message was properly delivered," the ever-cheerful organizing committee said on their website, "and we await a positive return from Ottawa!".

Ah yes.

Waiting for Ottawa.

Favourite strategy of Newfoundland nationalists from Grimes through to Williams.

And tonight, it would appear that the message was, in fact, "properly delivered", and that Canadians, from coast to coast to coast, sat up and paid attention.

Canadians, that is, from the east coast of Newfoundland to the west coast of Newfoundland, to the south coast of Newfoundland.

As of midnight, the only Canadian media which have reported Glorious National Rally Of Unity And Unconditional Love And Admiration For Glorious Leader are the Telegram online, in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada, and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Newfoundland and Labrador newsroom.

But surely that's the media calm before the storm. Wellington Street and Bay Street are on tenterhooks. Everybody, but everybody "upalong", as Peter Whittle might say, is glued to CTV Newsnet and RDI, waiting for the official response from Harper to Glorious National Rally Of Unity And Unconditional Love And Admiration For Glorious Leader.

No sir, there will be no sleep "upalong" tonight, nor for many nights to come.

I have no separation interest, still don't mind crowds protesting, just interested in what anyone in the province has to say from whatever angle. But I just had to comment that this post had me laughing, well worded sarcasm, and the name of the rally seems to be getting pretty long - entertaining.
