Amazingly Prime Minister Harper didn't remove the Montreal and Quebec City portions of the trip even after the province didn't vote for him on May 2nd. I was afraid he would do that as he has not yet shown up a minute to visit the Monteregie people who have been flooded for over 6 weeks (but found time to visit an obscur village in Greece where the gradpa of one of his aid lived).

*whimper*

GBS is my favourite band and I've never seen them live. EVER!!

I am so jealous of William and Catherine right now.

Oh and for those wondering...Maria Aragon is a little girl from Winnipeg who had a video of her singing Lady Gaga's Born This Way on YouTube. It went viral, Lady Gaga saw it and then invited Maria and her parents to her Toronto show and to also join her on stage to sing it w/her.

That lil adorable munckin's having quite the year. :oD

I haven't either, it looks like the same outfits worn when they visited the Darwin Institute or whatever that place was called. The only real obvious difference is in Kate's hair. It's a great shot though. The girl can certainly wear blue!

OTTAWA — Canada will be the first commonwealth country to issue commemorative wedding day stamps of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, just in time for the couple's visit

Renata4711 06-28-2011 04:36 AM

But doric44, we on the other side of the pond would love to see moose, Mounties and mountains !

The Queen's Irish Tour was a good example. Even without the Guinness tasting...
