|got its name?
Seems they tossed all the letters from a Scrabble game in a hat and said that whatever letters they pull out will be the name of the new northern country.
First letter: C eh
Next letter: N eh
Next letter: D eh
I am sure EJC can appreciate the humor, eh? :)

|We Canadians are far too reserved to start a civil war, we will leave that to the Americans ;-)
I admit I get a little touchy when it comes to jokes about my country, it comes from watching our federal government exhibit the combined attributes of an ostrich and a turkey. I am proud to be a Cnadian at a time when our government seems to be ashamed to be so. Also, I had to really think about making the joke above for fear of getting slammed by American patriots. Its not a two way street if you know what I mean.
