Inauguration Poll

After the inauguration of Mr. Barack Obama:

1.  The incidence of Canadians claiming that Canada is less racist and more diverse than our southern neighbour (because you know how they are down South [hum opening chords of “Duelling Banjos]) will:

A) Increase
B) Decrease
C) Remain the same

IT’S A CANADIAN FACT:  No black person has ever been elected Prime Minister of Canada, nor even won the leadership of any of the three major federal parties.

IT’S ALSO A CANADIAN FACT:
  No black person has ever been appointed to the Supreme Court of Canada.  Go ahead and look through the Chief Justices and Puisne Judges.  Meanwhile, the United States has had two black Supreme Court justices, Thurgood Marshall and Clarence Thomas.

2.  Canadians using the phrase “American-style” as an epithet or bugaboo will:

A) Increase
B) Decrease
C) Remain the same
