Canada Day

“Yesterday, I kept checking your blog for something on Canada Day.  Instead, you wrote about The Exorcist,” said a friend.

“The Devil made me do it,” I said.

“Seriously, don’t you celebrate Canada Day?” she said.

“Not really.”

“Why not?”

“I feel guilty over having stolen property that is 154 years old.  In fact, it is older than 154.  July 1, 1867, is the official date of the theft.  It was stolen before that date.  Sooner or later, the police will arrest us for possessing stolen property.”


“Yes.  How can we claim that we did not know the land was stolen?”

“We can’t.”

“So, the best thing we can do is give the land back to the owners.  Then we ask them not to testify against us should the police decided to charge us anyway.”

“Good Luck with that.”
