So many myths
The utterly hopeless John Ibbitson writes in Saturday's edition of the utterly hopeless Globe and Mail:
The myth of Newfoundland, like so many nationalist myths, jars with reality. The province is, for one thing, more urban than rural, with half the population now living in or near St. John’s.Speaking of myths that jar with reality, HALF THE POPULATION OF THE PROVINCE DOES NOT LIVE IN OR NEAR ST. JOHN'S!
Could whoever keeps telling this lie to Toronto journalists — or to themselves, for that matter — please stop doing so? Just stop it.
