Tom, you are a bit better travelled than a lot of your fellow Americans and see more sides of the equation. That's why the math is easy. Our cops busted a gang in Toronto yesterday and captured 31 handguns and a few MAC 11s. That's a very big haul for here and will lower the murder rate for a few weeks, because it's mostly gang guys popping at each other that accounts for two-thirds of the murder rate. The Canadian way is to defenestrate, stab or bludgeon, yes, even with a hockey stick. We call it "the personal touch".

As for the Michigan dumping, yes, we shouldn't send it, and you shouldn't take our money for it. But until we here in Southern Ontaio take responsibility for our own crap, we'd be fools not to ship it down the 401 while we avoid for a few more years dealing with the unpopular political consequences of charging per-bag garbage collection while we dig a new airport-sized landfill in some farmer's backyard.

As I crossed astern of him I saw Toronto on the stern - the skipper was busy eyeing my CS 36T as I eyed a nice example of my favorite boat...anyone you know?
Late Mark I C&C 30s number in the hundreds here in Toronto...could've been anyone. He probably was acknowledging your good taste in sailing a CS36T, another fine "classic plastic" Canadian-built cruiser.
