How long until Canadian Conservatives follow their American counterparts in abandoning democracy?

Yesterday was Martinstag in Germany.

I suppose if you think about it, it's St. Martin's Day here in Canada, too.

The occasion is said to be quite popular with children, with lots of colourful lanterns, costumes and sweets. Sort of like Halloween, only with more conventionally religious overtones.

It turns out the Germans don't celebrate Remembrance Day! Who knew?
