Just in time for Canada Day the Dominion Institute has released the results of a survey conducted by them, and it ain't pretty.

Apparently 60% of Canadians born in Canada would fail the same test given to new Canadians.

Rather than being disappointed by this finding, I tend to think of this as a challenge. The Pop Culture Institute has always featured Canadian news and history, and will continue to do so.

Enlightertainment to the rescue!

Order of Canada Recipients Named

Former Prime Minister Jean Chretien was among the 74 Canadians honoured for their public works with an Order of Canada this year, as announced by the office of the Governor-General.

Also on the list: golfer Mike Weir, veteran broadcaster Pamela Wallin, politician Preston Manning, and rocker Robbie Robertson.

Created on July 1, 1967, the Order of Canada is being marked this year by what a statement from Rideau Hall calls "a celebration of 40 years of outstanding achievements and excellence in all sectors of society."

Alas, my name was not on the list. Oh well, there's always next year.

Another Milestone!

Did any of you see "The 300"? Yeah, well triple it and you'll get a sense of how I'm feeling right now.

900. Shit. What have I done?

Well, whatever it was, it's pretty well unstoppable by now. I almost feel the need to put the brakes on, so as not to feel too overwhelmed. I'd like to take some time to bask in what is essentially the most minor of successes, so that I might nurture it and help it grow.

After all, isn't growth what summer is all about...

Next Milestone - Post # 1000 - August 5th
