Haggis is alright, I see no reason it shouldn't be improved upon by prudent application of maple syrup.

Don't wrestle with a pig. The pig enjoys it and you get muddy.

For Canadians, Scotland would establish a foothold in multicultural Europe. So, while the Tories in Britain and the Republicans in the United States set about creating a neo-liberal Anglosphere – anti-egalitarian, avowedly Christian, pro-Big Business, pro-military – Scotland becomes part of Canada and helps lead the way to a more progressive world.
Does Canada want to get invaded? Because that's a good way to get invaded.

Build? Average house price in Toronto is now $1.2 million, people are offering first day, no conditions for financing or home inspection. Prices up 33% from this time last year.

You'd better believe BUILD.
