The Thanksgiving holiday in Canada was started in the mid 1800's as a response to the Civil War going on in the U.S.--Canadians were grateful it wasn't happening in their country. All the bloodshed and mayhem. 
It appears Canada again has a lot to be grateful for that they aren't Americans. Doesn't it? Unfortunately. Or fortunate, for them. I was surprised when I found out Canada observes Thanksgiving and even more surprised when I found out why.

IMHO, Canada remains a country where life in general seems better than in the USA. And if only Justin Trudeau would buy himself a kilt and show off his yoga skills in a YT video... Man, oh man,  the Queen herself would melt and pledge anything anybody ever hoped for.

In the meantime, I have discovered he has got one! He, or whoever it may be, looks good in the Canadian flag too.

Happy Thanksgiving Canada!

Maybe this is true - and maybe not.  One thing they said interested me.  People don't own the land they live on in some places - not just the UK.  
Here where I live, a mining town, if they found copper under my house, it does not enrich me.  "The Company" will take it.  In fact they have decimated whole communities here.  They have wiped out, moved or destroyed whole sections of town.  Massive open pits have taken the place of once lovely communities of immigrants.  Immigrants that came here because of the mining.  So no one ever said anything.  And now they look back wistfully and wish we had it back the way it was.  

This is where I spent many a summer day as a child. The Colombia Gardens or as we all called it "The Gardens".  One day - around 1970 - we went there and there was a 9 foot chain link fence around the whole thing!  Shortly after that - anything made of wood burned to the ground in a "mysterious" fire.  Of course everyone knew it was the mining company.  The wooden roller coaster, the biplanes, the carousel, the boardwalk the massive dance pavilion.  
It's all open pit mine now.  The old open pit (Berkeley) is flooded with billions of gallons of toxic water.  The newer pit - The Continental - Is HUGE and everyday they blast and dig and haul away the ore, leaving the ugly tailing behind.  No one could stop them.  They owned the land and the park.
