Business trip to Calgary

Continuing my corporate assault on western Canada, today I will be traveling to Calgary. I think of Calgary as "The Prince George of Alberta."

These are my colleagues.

They have offered to take me out to rope calves, and then we are going to shoe horses. Apparently, that is how business gets done in Alberta! I will have to be sure to bring my spitoon.

See you Wednesday.

    The Wilson Moot, 2006

    Ah, yes, it's here again kids!

    The big Wilson Moot 2006.

    This young, attractive team from Queen's University has to be your hands down favourite, with inspiration coming from the scholarly guidance of Professor Kathleen Lahey (pictured above). Also undeniable has been the influence of chief researcher/irrepressible scamp Catherine Graham (pictured below). Graham's wily book smarts combined with Lahey's street fighting prowess make this year's K-Town contingent your team to beat.

    Add to that the potential appearance of such Limestone City luminaries as Associate Dean Arthur Cockfield and legendary heartthrob Dave Suchon, and this has all the makings of a classic.

    But remember, kids... What happens at the Wilson Moot, STAYS at the Wilson moot.

    I am headed to Prince George on official business.

    I am quite excited because I have never been to Prince George, or as it is more commonly known, "The Las Vegas of Northern British Columbia."

    Mr PG was first constructed in 1960 as a symbol of the importance of the forest industry to Prince George. That year he took part in the Prince George May Day parade and could speak and bow. In 1961 he was entered in the Kelowna Regatta and the Vancouver PNE Parade and also traveled to Smithers. Two years later, he entered the 1963 Grey Cup parade.

    Today Mr PG stands erect and silent at the junction of Highway 97 and Highway 16 but still welcomes all visitors to a Prince George that owes much to the forest industry.

    Mr PG is 8.138 meters high, his head is 1.5 metres in diameter.

    See you Wednesday.
