History Passes In A Blur

History was in the making today as American’s first black president met with Canada’s whitest prime minister. Despite the fact that it was only a six-hour visit, no pomp nor circumstance was spared. Observant readers will note from the photo that we even rolled out our black mountie for the occasion.

Fun Canadian Fact: We keep our black mountie under glass in a sub-basement of the National Archives with a special ten-digit security code lock that may only be opened in the event of an emergency photo-op event. The last time the federal government declared such an emergency, requiring a public display of our black mountie, was never.
