Another dark cloud

September 21, 2018 will be a day many of our friends and families will never forget. When a couple tornados touched down in and near the Ottawa-Gatineau area, trees came down, shingles blew off, roofs blew away and entire houses were torn apart. Power transmission stations were destroyed, leaving hundreds of thousands of people without hydro. Most stoplights went dark, gas stations closed — even coffee shops were closed. Canada’s Experimental Farm in the centre of Ottawa lost power, but like all other dairy farms in Canada, they had to get a generator going to milk the cows and feed the animals even if their own generator wouldn’t work.
For several months, we have listened to our neighbouring president complain about how unfair Canadians are at the NAFTA negotiating table because Canada wouldn’t roll over and play dead.
