Re: Guysborough, N.S.
Thanks so much Rob, for keeping us up to date. I'll keep watching CBC news today for
live reports! LOL - where are our national television networks when something
really important happens? Watching some men bash little white balls, with sticks
around a field (golf). They are all over the maritimes giving the natives coverage
the lobster dispute, always showing some "act of vandalism". I hope they have the
grace to cover this ceremony of peace.
I'll get off my soapbox now.
