I was looking up New Year’s Levees, their origins and traditions and came across this at Wikipedia:

A report of the New Year’s levée held in Brandon House in Manitoba in 1797 indicated that “… in the morning the Canadians (men of the North West Company) make the House and Yard ring with saluting (the firing of rifles). The House then filled with them when they all got a dram each.” Simpson‘s Athabasca Journal reports that on January 1, 1821, “the Festivities of the New Year commenced at four o’clock this morning when the people honoured me with a salute of fire arms, and in half an hour afterwards the whole Inmates of our Garrison assembled in the hall dressed out in their best clothes, and were regaled in a suitable manner with a few flaggon’s Rum and some Cakes. A full allowance of Buffaloe meat was served out to them and a pint of spirits for each man.

Do you think we could get away with doing this in this day and age?

December 6th…

December 6th, the anniversary of the Montreal Massacre, has become a day of bashing and excoriating all men because of the actions of on deranged madman with a gun. If any one of those people at Ecole Polytechnique had been “allowed” by our Benevolent Government to carry a firearm for personal protection, perhaps the evil perpetrator, Gamil Gharbi, might not have been able to carry out his intentions. But noooooooOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooo! We are not permitted by The State to go about armed for the preservation of our own lives, or that of others.  They prefer to blame all gun owners – if not all men – for the actions of one other person.

December 6th should rather be “Piss off a Liberal – Buy a gun” day…
