Only in Canada Would This be a Headline

Here's some good news for all Canadians. The bad new is that our ranking in the visibility of our roadside signage dropped from 7th place all the way down to 12th, and that we are struggling to keep pace with Swiss in our availability of fresh baked goods in urban centres.

Great fresh bread in Canada. Like the live traffic count. Interesting to see how big brother is watching.

Well we didn't win very many medals at the olympics, so we will bathe in the warmth of the glow of our fourth place ranking in the world of cigarette package warning labels.

Hi Don, if you spent a week in Canada following the news, you'd quickly realize that we love to rank ourselves against other countries as if everything were a competitive sport and we are medal contenders.

Ron. I'm going to bake a batch of peanut butter cookies and stand on a street corner in Toronto handing them out. Its my duty to do my part.

Well, you did make a lot of people smile by sharing this headline - maybe you should create a statistic for that . . . : )

Since I don't smoke I haven't noticed the packaging on cigarettes lately, but I'm glad to hear that more countries are getting on board with the scary images, and I hope it will work.
