- Ambassador's Report -

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody. This is my first posting of the Canadian Ambassador's Report.

I will be using this same thread for every weekly report in order to economize the space in this forum.

Prepared by Freezing Cold Water and Judith Gap

Forum - Wikipedia - Webpage

Population: 297 nations

Delegate: Checkers McDog (108 endorsements)

Regional Happenings:

Freezing Cold Water was appointed as the Assistant Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs.

Ess became the third member of the forum to reach over 10,000 posts.  Amazingly the top three posters in the region have combined for nearly 33,000 posts.

There has been renewed activity in nearly all of political parties in the House of Commons.

In the Ministry of Doughnuts and Beer, Redundancies continued lessons in history and geography.  Most recently, information on the Hope slide and collapse of Turtle Mountain, and a brief biography of Lucy Maud Montgomery (Anne of Green Gables) was posted.

In sports, The Liarq Lions have begun to extend their lead over Durass Daggers, as South of the border has begun to fade.

In the Village (not pictured here), new activity has begun to transform the small town.  Recently re-opening is Bweezy's Oracle, which had stopped giving the region the answers it needed.  How else can we really know what is in a hot dog?  Also opening is Kein Aber's Knapsack Canada, Baked Goods/Fine Chocolates & Gifts, and Jack Tarr's schooner vacations.

United Nations: Canada voted:

AGAINST the "Civilian Rights Post War".

While members liked the guarantee of civil rights, concerns about loopholes and enforcement led to its regional defeat.

FOR the repeal of "National Systems of Tax"

OOC Happenings:

In the real world, hockey resumes.  As you might imagine, many of us are happy.

Hudson Bay stated that 1966 was the best year in music.  So far discussion hasn't been willing to accept any date after 1974.

Defectiveness has left to visit family in a small town five hours north of Winnipeg.

Kana Da went to the dentist and still has no cavities.  One member remarked, "No cavities? For someone as sweet as you?"  The entire forum gagged on that 'sweetness'.

Beaver-Country-Canada has been to Soccer camp.  The athletes she has coached are all doing well.

Checkers McDog spent Saturday getting caught up on her reading so that she could be prepared for the newest Harry Potter book. 

Game of the WeekMost Wanted.  Try beating the scores in our games forum.  Note: requires Flashplayer.

I think reading this has caused me to lose the little bit of intelligence I have left.

Regional Happenings:

Redundancies, The Minister of Doughnuts and Beer, posted information about The Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA) (Montreal).

In the previous week's report, Equilism's Moo-cows with guns posted a story, "Hearing Things" which is an inspiring story.

After running aground on a shoal and watching his coasting schooner catch fire, Captain Jack Tarr has been inconsolable.  All passengers were airlifted to safety in style by Almonaster and his incredible flying machine.

Al's Fractal Gallery re-opened on new premises, and Fractal Fridays, where board members use fractals as avatars, were introduced on the forums.

In regional baseball news, the Liarg Lions managed to hold off the Durass Daggers for another week.

Special welcome to new nations on the forum: Aarcane, Canadian Geese, and Shamrockville

United Nations: Canada voted:

AGAINST “UN Resolution - Establish UNWCCâ€

OOC Happenings:

IRL, Bweezy reported news agencies who confirmed that a hair sample was being tested to see if it was Sasquatch.  Speculation was mutant trout or biker convention.  Later news reports say bison, but there may be a cover up.

Game of the weekFive Finger Fillet.  Warning this game is extremely violent.  Try beating the high score on our forums

Generally speaking, people are active.

Beaver-Country-Canada is in Vancouver.  Liarg is on vacation.  Jack Tarr will be sailing.  Bweezy is golfing. Checkers has been shopping and going out with friends.  Kana Da is getting ready to be extremely busy.  Judith Gap is in the final week of summer classes.  Daemon is recovering from a cold.  Almonaster is kung-foo fighting with his computer.

But in general, people are doing stuff.

Random Quotes from Discussion Boards by Almonaster

Bweezy:

I'd like to state that I now *like* telemarketers.  The past week has seen me adopt the strategy of pretending I can't speak English.  It's a lot of fun to see how long they'll talk to you before they hang up.

I still hate Clowns though.

Magnate of the Albertan Empire:

I have learned that Beer and Doughnuts must be treated with respect and not be consumed foolhardy.

Judith Gap:

Foreign Affairs representatives from various regions will be meeting in Q102 to discuss the role of ambassadors and how ambassadors should behave. If you are interested and are the foreign affairs representative for your region, please contact Nevareion of Q102 or Judith Gap of Canada.

Redundancies, The Minister of Doughnuts and Beer, posted information about Oscar Peterson, outstanding jazz pianist.

Q102 and Canada have established diplomatic relations by exchanging ambassadors.  The new embassy opened with a gala event, which was atttended by most of the locals, looking good, and a number of notable ambassadors from other regions.

In regional baseball news, the Durass daggers have stunned the Liarq Lions by tying the penant race.  South of the border continues to try to catchup to the leaders. 

Special welcome to new nations on the forum: Zaws and Evenrood.  Special welcome to Mikitivity from the International Democratic Union.

Voted FOR The Freedom of Conscience.

OOC Happenings:

One of our newer members, Zaws, started a thread called "You Know You're Addicted to the Internet When...". The list has been getting longer and longer!  Perhaps, "You might be addicted to the internet when" you spend time developing a long list of how to tell you're addicted to the internet.

Almonaster has been keeping us updated on his trip to the Netherlands!  Last we heard from him, he was in Rotterdam, because his attempts to find a place to stay in Amsterdam were thwarted by a gay pride event. 

BCC returned safely from her trip to Vancouver and Vancouver Island -- see the update in The BCC in Vancouver Thread.

Checkers McDog, our Prime Ministress, had to work at The Bay on the statutory holiday Monday.

Kana da's computer is currently being fixed, so the rest of us are trying to catch up with her many hundreds of posts (12,619).

Hudson Bay can officially say he has a full-time job, by helping out with other parts of a partially unfunded project.

Oilers Fans went to boycott a railroad whose cars ran off their tracks and spilled 1.3 million tonnes of oil into Wabamun Lake.

Regional Happenings:

Daemon's Resignation

Cabinet was saddened to hear that Daemon would be resigning as Minister of Regional Affairs. Cabinet wished Daemon well, and thanked him for his input during the last two terms in Office.

  Discussion about the now vacant position concluded in that KD (kana da) should be elevated to Admin status, as per the position. Cabinet is said to be excited to be working with the new Minister. In response the new Minister was quoted as having said,

This is really weird. A couple of nights ago, I was in my room. Now, you see, my mom had gone to the bank for 20 minutes, and I wanted some insane root. I didn't have time to actually roll it so I could smoke it, so I decided to eat it. Now, instead of the pink elephants I was expecting, I got three witches showing up in my room.

"Yo, KD girl, congrats to the DMoRa. Congrats to the MoRA. Congrats to the future Prime Minister."

After that the insane root wore off and I was left there wondering what happened. After mulling it over for a while, I realized that since I don't have a UN nation in Canada, this could mean only one thing.

Paul Martin is coming over for a sleepover tomorrow night.

Inter-regional Affairs forum

In response to a continued increase in Foriegn Affairs talks, the Ministry of Foriegn Affairs requested the creation of a new Forum, 'Inter-regional Affairs forum', because it was felt that: "...more issues will be discussed by multiple regions. It would be nice to have a place for such discussions." Cabinet was eager to see an inter regional discussion Forum.

North Pacific

Concern was raised about North Pacific (not the Feeder Region) about differences of opinion and the possible rammifications for Canada - North Pacific relations.

The North Pacific

After recieving a PM from The North Pacifics Minister of External Affairs, Blackshear, Cabinet discussed the possibilities of reestablishing relationships between the Regions. Cabinet is still discussing about the reopening of the embassy but are confident that The North Pacific will meet the Canadian Standards for Diplomacy.

Cabinet Notepad

The suggestion of a notepad for new Cabinet members was raised that would detail the process for the introduction of legislative proposals.

The Polar Bear Hunt

A Polar Bear Hunt is underway in the land of Boreal Tundra. There are representatives of eight different Canadian nations taking photos of these majestic beasts.

The City of the Ehs Baseball League

South of the Border has claimed the top spot in the league, just ahead of the Durass Daggers and Liarg Lions.

The Canadian Soccer League

The soccer league has revved up and is preparing for their draft.

United Nations:

We voted FOR The Transgender Equality Act, but it was defeated 7,226 votes to 6,917.

We are currently voting on The Sex Education Act. The votes are coming in but are not looking promising for this Act.

OOC Happenings:

Daemon had to cancel his meeting with our delegate, Checkers McDog, in Toronto because he was sick and then had to go to Calgary.

Kana da did some packing for her move to Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. She also found a picture of her grade six heartthrob, whom she says was not as hot as she thought!

Checkers McDog went apartment-searching in Toronto, and found an apartment she liked, that was being redone. However, now she has to overcome the parental issues and get them to pay part of it!

Almonaster had an intense but excellent role play session.

Jack Tarr has returned from his vacation on the seas.

Beaver-Country-Canada spent a few days with her father before she leaves for Calgary.

Redundancies is getting better at poker.

Regional Happenings:

Texas and Canada reached an agreement to exchange ambassadors.  It is expected that mass quantities of beer and beef will be consumed in both regions.

Unaware of the new embassy, Liarg & Parrrrtay held a preemptory BBQ

During the recent NationStates emergency, quick thinking and mass e-mails from our Prime Ministress helped many members avoid logging in and having their nations zeroed out.  The problem has since been fixed.

Europa granted Canada a consulate.

Minister of Doughnuts and Beer, Redundancies, posted information on the Arctic Fox and a few nice pictures courtesy of VIA Rail.

Canada's Delegate, Checkers McDog was approached by United Federation of Planets about a diplomatic relationship.  We are still discussing the idea.

South of the border is holding a narrow lead in a three-way race for the Canadian baseball penant.

Canada welcomes the following new nations to the forum: proficy, thilanka, LandS, and king_girl (TV's best friend and wife).  Special welcome to ambassadors: NewTexas (Texas) and Spanish Pacific (North Pacific).

BabyPanda, Mav's stufffed animal, somehow managed to come to life and register for the forum.  If you sight this panda, be aware he is extremely cute and candy hungry!

Parrrrtay had corrective vision surgery and is still recovering.  Jack Tarr is attempting to take advantage of her temporarily impaired vision.

Checkers McDog said goodbye to an old friend who left for Yale, the same friend who had just returned from a 6 week trip to Australia.  She also found out that her manager is leaving, and is very sad about this.  She says, "The dry erase board in our shoe stockroom, which usually just has notes and sales targets written on it, now just says 'WHY GRACE? WHY!'"

Judith Gap showed off his English skills (grammar) by awing us with his dissection of a sentence.

Daemon has been unpacking for a week and a half, and may still be covered in boxes, since we haven't heard much from him in the past few days.

Regional Happenings:

MoFA business

-The United Federation of Planets requested an embassy. Negotiations were held off owing to the President's possible Nazi connections.

-Diplomatic development with Stornoway is being considered, but no conclusions have been made as yet.

-We re-opened ties with The North Pacific along similar lines as before with no disapproval by anyone.

-Our MoFA is winding down his diplomatic contacting before the elections.

-International Democratic Union was being considered, but the request has neither been accepted nor declined. The big concerns were the ill-defined legal system and lack of a Cabinet.

-The region of Europa has offered us a Consulate.

Security Information

-A group called NationStates Intelligence sent a TG to our Delegate asking her for info about our region.

-Firefly Islands, who resides here in Canada, sent a TG to Checkers McDog demanding she hand over power to the region Deus Ex Machina. Wysteria's delegate recieved the same TG from the same nation. Firefly Islands was ejected under sections 1b, 2d, and 2e. Cabinet discussed whether Firefly Islands should be banned for 30 days or indefinitely.

Legal Business

-Parrrrtay introduced an amendment to the constitution.

A newly elected Delegate/Prime Minister shall not be granted Administrator privileges until approved by the voters. The Minister of Regional Affairs shall be responsible for organizing the poll to approve or disapprove granting the Prime Minister Administrator privileges for the balance of the current cabinet term. Constitutional process for voting in elections shall be applied to the Administration privilege vote. With the exception that the voting period for the Administration privilege vote shall commence at 9:00 a.m Eastern Time on the first Thursday following the event of a different nation becoming delegate, and end at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on the following Sunday.

-Judith Gap and Carbanousa opposed it because with the recall legislation, the government could be weakened if the MoRA was impeached.

-Parrrrtay pointed out that without this safeguard, an invader could come in, get Admin status, and delete our accounts and toss us into the RR and there'd be nothing we could do about it.

-Checkers pointed out that these same "followers" could also come in and vote for the delegate on our forum, but that the Ejection and Board Suspension guidelines, section 1.g., would be able to rescue us. She further stated that the vote of confidence might give us time to regain the delegacy and boot the invaders out.

-Carb said that the transference of Admin power should be slow, as well as that this should not compromise regional security, and that that was the point he was taking this from.

-JG stated that the real issue was separating the PM position from the Delegate position, which caused Red to state that that would cause a rift between the on-site board and the NS game.

-JG noticed that the PM would still have the duties of the PM/Delegate, but would not have administrative capacity.

-Carb said that to support the proposal is to cement the unification between the Delegate and Prime Minister, and to not support it is to make the NationStates site and forum two different entities.

-Discussion was left up in the air pending more ideas.

Recall Process

- Parrrtay asked if the cabinet shouuld vote on the revision of Public Recall of Canadian Ministers law since the voters have viewed it in HoC and if they should do as HB suggests and hook this process in the constitution to remove any claim that this is not a legal process. No answer has been given.

United Nations:

Canada voted AGAINST the UN Repeal - Ban Chemical Weapons

Canada voted AGAINST the UN Resolution - Adoption and IVF Rights

OOC Happenings:

420_Celebrants found out he has an October 1st deadline for his new job as a magazine writer -- check it out here!

A new test, The Gullibility Factor is teaching us Canadians a little bit about life.

Our newest member, Gosstoepia, gave us a funny link to a Japanese teacher's blog.

Beaver-Country-Canada started her first full day of real, highly paid for schooling at the University of Calgary. She also changed her degree from an English major to a Philosophy major with a Political Sciences minor for next semester.

Ess's new supervisor brought them donuts on his day off. Her husband also put in for retirement, and will be retired by the end of November.

Redundancies has a new baby niece, from his tomboy sister! Congratulations!

Diplomatic Events

Interregional basketball league has started in Equilism.  Interested players should contact Moishe in Equilism or Canada6 in Canada.

We would like to welcome Haor Chall, The Minister of External Affairs in The North Pacific, and Idunnowhat, The Minister of External Affairs, in North Pacific.  Also, congratulations to ZetaOne on being named ambassdor from The West Pacific.  Welcome to SensitiveMadScientists who is an ambassador from 10,000 Islands.

Regional Affairs:

Kana Da opened the region's first amusement park.  In the nation of Kronemonsteland, a Super Theme Park opened.

The Minister of Beer and Doughnuts, Where are the CBs, posted information on #2 on the list of Top Canadians, Terry Fox.

Special welcome to newcomers: NoFunNinjas and Red Ponies (Jet)

Governmental Affairs

Canada voted on another amendment to add recall procedures to the constitution.

Canada voted AGAINST the UN Resolution "Worldwide Media Act", which led to unusual amounts of discussion about a UN proposal.

Considerable time has been spent in discussing how best to photoshop new Deputy Prime Minister, Daemon, into a seafoam dress.

OOC Happenings:

Apparently Where are the CBs has squirrels in his head.

Daemon went to an OPETH concert and dislocated his shoulder in the mosh pit.

Parrrrtay went on a nature hike at Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

Checkers McDog was woken up by an apparently psychotic squirrel with a hissing problem one morning.

Micon, an old Canadian from far back in our past, has shown up again on our boards!  Many Canadians were happy to see him, and he says he will be sticking around a bit more often now.

We had a poll about who is naughtier -- J Delight or Jack Tarr!  Come cast your vote in favour of the naughtiest boardmate of ours!

Many of the forum dwellers were working very hard on midterm exams and projects.

Random Quotes from Discussion Boards

Tiny Villages

Isn't asking "which of them [JT or JD] is naughtier" like asking "which was worse, the blue or the red Yugo?"

NoFunNinjas

sorry JD, he just seems like a creepy guy with a naughty secret

Jack Tarr

Looks like all my previous Chex worshiping has paid off.

Jack Tarr

How could she [J Delight] have commited the homocide when she was busy spanking me after I lost the naughty poll?

Editorial (jg): Based on the above quotes, we might conclude that Jack Tarr, although not actually creepy, has a few naughty secrets: cult worshipping (ok, that is a little creepy) and a fondness for being spanked. However, J Delight, by spanking him, has demonstrated her naughtiness.

REMINDER Ambassador's Day will be celebrated on November 18 to honour the contributions of ambassadors for their distinguished service.  Festivities will begin at 2:00 pm EDT and be held in the Diplomacy forum.

Regional Affairs:

In sporting news, Canada6 leads Canada's hockey league.

Special welcome to newcomers: dmitch, 100 donuts, triski, and Find Me.

Governmental Affairs

Zaripya introduced a proposal that UN resolutions be immune from repeal for a brief period of time.  Members of Canada did not seem enthusiatic about the idea. 
I don't think that many people find the UN to be a joke simply because resolutions get repealed quickly.  I think you will find that the rate of repeal is a symptom and not a cause of the UN's lack of credibility.
- Hudson Bay.

OOC Happenings:

kana da went back to Regina for the Remembrance Day weekend.

We had a small discussion about Max Barry's two novels Jennifer Government and Syrup, and how dirty Syrup was perceived to be by some of our members.

Butterkeys invited the forum to come out for a visit!!!!!

Checkers McDog went to an awards ceremony the night of November 7th. She was George Heller's liaison for the night. She also asked us for some advice on a paper she must write involving some advertisement analyses.

Our resident lawyer bweezy had some late nights working until 11:00... so he decided to take off early at 10:00 one night. He also went on a date with his wife earlier in the week.

Bamada's father has a rabid cat.

Daemon received some excellent scores on his GREs and is considering staying in North America to go to grad school!

The evil thread has seen quite a bit of activity this week.

Random Quotes from Discussion Boards
Daemon - Remind me not to argue with you in a public place. The irresponsible use of pudding products is a pet peeve of mine.

Liarg - I did not kill anything yesterday.

Jack Tarr - And you want to be our latex salesman!!!

J Delight - I'm not bad I'm just drawn that way.... ummm... drat, not animated. Oh well, guess I am bad.

Daemon - What is this, evil one-upmanship?

I leave the toaster's crumb tray uncleaned for months! I violate copywrites! I flip off squirrels and elderly chipmunks!

My RL obligations have been simply overwhelming in the past month. Huge steps in my personal and professional life were successfully taken during that time. Gladly this bittersweet period is finally over with the end result of 9 months working on a project being a resounding success.

I have shamefully neglected to post the last two consecutive Ambassador Reports on time. My apologies to Equilism, Canada and the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Judith Gap. All three deserve much better.

I hope the reports will be enjoyed nonetheless.
