Diplomatic Events

We have opened an embassy in the United Federation of Planets.  In related news, the ministry budget has been expanded to include intergalactic means of travel.

Special welcomes to Moldavistan of Gatesville and punk daddy of The South Pacific.

Errata: In last weeks report, I incorrectly identified Great Bights Mum as being a member of TWP.  I was apparently consuming insane root.  GBM is our ambassador from The North Pacific.  Sorry about that.

Regional Affairs:

In sporting news, Canada6 continues to lead Canada's hockey league.

In regional politics, Phil Jackson has been active in creating the Socialist Alliance and in posting many position statements.  His activities seem as if they may awaken many of the other major parties.

Governmental Affairs

Canada seems like it will be voting AGAINST the UN proposal - Right to Divorce.

Canada voted FOR the UN proposal - Rights of Neutral States.

Concerns about espionage and The South Pacific had many people in Canada concerned that TSP was not behaving democratically and some wanted assurance that no Canadian minister was involved in similar espionage.  Even though events in TSP were settled, the ferver continued in Canada.

As a direct result of our region's arguing about the events in TSP, bweezy decided to quit the boards in Canada (although we hope he returns soon.  It's cold out there, and he didn't even take his coat.); Hudson Bay also resigned his position as Minister of Justice. Another direct result is that the forum has called for cabinet to review a loophole in the Conflict of Interest guidelines.

  Parrrrtay has been elevated to Interim Minister of Justice.  Once she receives a vote of confidence, she will become the new minister.  Tiny Villages has accepted the position of Deputy Minister.

OOC Happenings:

Defectiveness, a recent member of our boards who disappeared for a while, has reappeared to the delight of many of Canadians.  We missed you Defec!

Special credit goes to our Prime Ministress, Checkers McDog, for bringing Defec back to us smile.gif

canada_6 has updated his signature, which has a picture of three of our past Prime Ministers, to having 3 past Prime Ministers -- with Santa hats on!  Nothing says Christmas like Prime Ministers in Santa Hats.

Beaver-Country-Canada received her new, shiny black iPod in the mail!  She was very excited.

king_girl's three kids have 3 different illnesses; but she still thinks they are cute, even when they're sick!  KG, could it have been the cookies? wink.gif

kana da went to her first dance!  Have fun KD!

Oilers Fans has recently come back to join us at the boards again.  One of the first things he did, of course, was tell us about his exciting trip to Calgary.

bweezy's daughter has an illness called "croup", and he has been taking care of her.  Best wishes go out to bweezy and his daughter.

Parrrrtay has spent the last couple days running and hiding from an auditor of her business.  So far, she's having success!

TinyVillages brought his son's cookies to work to share with his boss.  Unfortunately, said cookies were made of some fairly unbalanced ingredients, so they didn't taste all that great -- and while he is still employed, his boss spent half a day trying to wash the taste out of his mouth!

We've been having a discussion on handguns, the legality of them, and how lots of them are being smuggled into Canada lately...

Redundancies saw a shootout between the Blue Jackets and another team, of which was not named.  The Blue Jackets also won said game.

Daemon just finished writing a paper on ""An Analysis of RedAgent’s Market-based Appoach to Supply Chain Management" which he had to email to his teacher, with ten minutes to spare.

Random Quotes from Discussion Boards

kana da - What've you got for us who don't drink booze?

Dameon - Advice: start as soon as you are legally able.

Quotes I'm Toying with making the Ministry of Foreign Affairs motto.

Bweezy - In any event, my agenda here was to give everyone a reality check.

Daemon - This looks like a lot of drama over what appears to be a miscommunication

Parrrrtay - OK, and try to make sure you get paid for doing as little as possible while making it look like you did a lot!

Special Feature - Random Quote from a board other than Canada

Mikitivity (International Democratic Union) - The IDU stands for secular government. We support as a basic human right the right to worship without interence from the state, and also the right to govern without interference from the church.

The above was part of the original discussion that was not included in the posts. It was proposed by Sober Thought as a starting point.

Basically the back story is that we were discussing the relationship between religion and democracy, and in doing so reached a consensus that this sort of discussion should be had in a public forum, because it involves all of us!

You have been a wonderfull ambassador. One of the most active (after flanders tongue.gif) ambassadors we have. It was a pleasure and will continue to be so.

Much luck with RL.

Honestly, it feels much more like you are a member of the region than an ambassador.

Canada's lucky to have you.

Indeed, you are a perfect example of how an ambassador should conduct himself - Relaxed, active and friendly (in other words, as at home). Thanks for that.

I'm afraid it's a bit beyond insurance. Right now, you need to find a good scrap-dealer.

If you need me, I'll be in the comforting diplomatic immunity of the Equilism Embassy on the Canada boards.

None.  I'm a lazy bum who was consumed with grading writing portfolios (8 essays x 50 students = insanity)

We have been contacted by The Meritocracy and Gatesville who have requested embassies in Canada. But, like I said, I'm a lazy bum and haven't done anything about either request yet.

Regional Affairs:

In sporting news, Canada6 is holding off The Number 17 in Canada's hockey league.  The Nooterland Nets now leads in Equilism's basketball league, although Canadian teams are ranked third, fourth, and fifth.

Special welcome to new members: Noonanasia, The Bruce, Isra Palani, The Nomadic Peoples of WildMoon, and phill.

Governmental Affairs

This week, Checkers McDog stepped down as delegate. Carbanousa was elected as the new delegate through the endorsement system in NS.  Canada will be going to the polls this week to grant our new delegate admin powers on the forum.

Because of the vacancy left by Carbanousa in the Ministry of Defense, Liarg has been promoted to Interim Minister of Defence and, upon passing a vote of confidence, will take the portfolio of Minster of Defence.

Canada voted AGAINST the UN proposal - Right to Divorce.

Canada gave Interim Minister of Justice, Parrrrtay, a VOTE OF CONFIDENCE to grant her the title and portfolio of Minister of Justice.

eat vanilla ice cream in the middle of winter

kill my math teacher and escape to Kazakhstan guarding sheeps for the rest of my life to avoid being discovered

*sheds tears*

4:20 Celebrants - Thank you for making me spray chocolate milk all over my keyboard. I can now blame any typing mistakes on this unfortunate event.

Judith Gap - It's like kissing anarchy in here!

Beaver-Country-Canada - I'm thinking I don't remember posting in this thread this morning, but I obviously did...

*shakes snow off boots* *looks around*


There's a one-off change this week...

Seriously though, when our Minister of Foreign Affairs Judith Gap suggested this idea, it was thought a great idea, and so for this week, I'll be making a tour of each Canadian Embassy. I don't really know what to say, so I'll try and put down some thoughts and feelings.

Firstly I would like to say “Hello†to Equlism and that I look forward to working with you all, for which I am very enthusiastic. I'm hoping to be able to drop by three or four times a week for some fun and games and to generally irk people with random insanity and nonsensical gibberish... Speaking of which, have you ever noticed how a seemingly benign sentence can tangent to how Penguins are constantly plotting to achieve world domination through the use of jam sandwiches. Impossible, I hear you cry? Improbable, more likely . This is is best bit though – the Weasels are aware of the Penguins plot and plan to stop them.

I hope that everyone had a great holiday period, and that the New Year is both fruitful and productive in both NationStates and real life. The Weasels, you see, are secretly working for the flying-monkeys who have infiltrated the Penguins echelons of command.

I trust that all is well in Equlism and I appreciate I've got some big shoes to fill. Speaking of which, these really are fantastic shoes – so sparkley and bright. I must find out where they came from.

Enough! Enough I say! I've bored you for long enough now, so here's to the future and enjoy the following report.

This resolution generated quite a bit of debate and prompted cabinet to go back to the drawing board.

Diplomatic Events

Canada has finally decided to get with the times and name things for what they are. Thus, we have a new forum designation for our ambassadors from around the NS world. Instead of being members or visitors, all ambassadors are now ... wait for it ... "ambassadors!" Aren't we brilliant 'eh?

Carbanousa (you guys remember him ... he's our new PM) recently visited all of Canada's Embassies. He ate some food, drank some drink and slept some sleep. He got lost twice, but friendly natives pointed him back to the snowy confines of Canada. The region is still waiting for pictures.

We've received a flurry of requests for embassies from: Trav Khar, The Meritocracy, Great Britain and Ireland, Ireland, and Liberalia.

Special welcome to Kericia of 10,000 Islands, r3naissanc3r of Great Britain and Ireland, Nooterland our new ambassador from Equilism, and Venchov of Xanthorn from Liberalia.

Canada's kissing booth will be opening in England and a few surprise embassies on  Thursday of this week.

Regional Affairs:

In sporting news, Canada6 continues to kick everyone's butt in our hockey league.  In Equilism's basketball league, Nooterland continues to lead the league; although, Ess and Canada6 are still within the top five.

Special welcome to new members: Anarchico, North east Somerset, Quebecues, and X-Files Groupies.

Governmental Affairs

Canada voted FOR a repeal of the UN Resolution: Mandatory Recycling.

OOC Happenings:

Redundancies finished fifth overall in poker.  It was his first final-table finish in quite some time. 

Maikainzilion made yet another  speed visit to the boards.

Who was that masked man?

Bamada and a girlfriend were attacked and chased out of a park by a couple of 9 year olds!  Bamada declared it was  "Possibly one of the scariest things that has ever happened to me."  The visual cracked Jack Tarr up! 

Butterkeys has returned from her vacation.  Her boyfriend's Mum flew her and her boyfriend to Perth for New Years.  She reports that a great time was had by all! 

Minister of Beer and Doughnuts, NoFunNinjas, gets a special mention as the WTF post of the week by promoting YTMND.com this week, specifically for the linke to Picard hits Batman.

In the thread, Currently Listening To..., Redveras had been listening to The Mars Volta - Frances The Mute, in all its 14 minute glory. Daemon agreed with a thumbup.gif

Tiny Villages - The story with insane root is nearly lost in the mist of time and confusion. As to what we are, we are many things that, at times, seems to almost makes sense.  Whenever that happens, it is quickly snuffed out--once by a condiment war for which JG is still paying reparations.

This week we are preparing for an opening gala for the new Great Britain and Ireland embassy on Monday.

Likewise, the gala event for the new Europa embassy is planned for Thursday.

Canada declined to re-establish diplomatic relations with Trav Khar until the region's population increases.

During this week we closed our embassies in both United Federation of Planets and in The West Pacific.

Minister of Foreign Affairs, Judith Gap,  released this comment,

"Canada voted to close its embassy in The West Pacific this week after careful consideration of the ongoing constitutional convention. Ironically, not long after our notice of closing, the conference was declared a failure and the regional government no longer represents the will of the people of The West Pacific. While Canada respects the right of all regions to make choices of government based on the needs of the region and the will of its people, we hope that The West Pacific will eventually return to a democratically elected government. Until that time, we hope that dissatisfied nations in The West Pacific will find homes in democratic regions throughout NationStates."

Special welcome to Scipii of Europa.

Regional Affairs:

In sporting news, the hockey league is being led by Canada6. In Equilism's basketball league, Canada6 has jumped up to second place right behind Nooterland.

It's been a week of parties in Canada with the opening gala for Great Britain and Ireland having just finished and the gala for Europa just beginning.

Special welcomes to Loyal British Columbia of Great Britain and Ireland (GBI), and Northern Sushi of Liberalia.

Regional Affairs:

Special welcome to new members: Langwell, coup_de_steve, Apocryphia.

The Shroud (RP)

- Legate Grimson's return has interrupted the opening of the Gemetrian senate. The Praetorian Guard has been summoned.

- The Defectiveness Emperor contemplated possible reactions as Gemetria spirals into outright civil war, and wondered about the role of the inhuman Gemetrian Tree. The Defective military was placed on high alert, and plans have been drawn up for an invasion of Gemetria.

In the Maple-Taco Cup I (10,000 Islands Soccer League), Algal States and Omnivorous are atop the standings in their group. Omni holds first place based on tiebreakers.  Canada6 and NoFunNinjas are second and third, respectively, in their group. They are currently in line to qualify for the championship tournament.

The Nooterland Nets of Equilism continue to lead Equilism's Fantasy Basketball League. Canada6 holds the top spot of Canadian nations at #2 and the Esselldee Energy ranks #3.

In hockey, Canada6 leads the Birthplace of Hockey fantasy league by more than 2000 points. Their closest competitor is the Durass Dreadnaughts.

Governmental Affairs

Canada reviewed its wiki page and decided that someone should definitely be responsible for making sure information continues to be updated.

420 Celebrants  went with his girlfriend and her parents to see the Pink Floyd Animals Tour Friday night.  *See quotes. 

We are very happy that Parrrrtay's eye surgery turned out well!

Movie ratings from the Seen any good movies lately? thread: 

Daemon gives Transamerica 8.5/10 and A History of Violence 7.5/10 - 

Good, but for some reason I was expecting more. There were things about it that just were flat to me.

Defectiveness rates Underworld: Evolution -

Depends what you're looking for in a movie. If it's blood, violence, and gratuitous nudity, it's got it all. And a not-half-bad plot, full of mystical B.S. So when taken in the context of an action movie, probably 8.5-9/10.

However, unless you like action movies, this one would just rate low and needlessly violent. Viewer discretion advised, and all that jazz.

Carbanousa, our esteemed Prime Minister says about Dog Town and Z Boys:

Not really a film, but more of a docu-drama than rockumentry, documenting the growth of the skateboard culture during the late 1950's and 1960's America. It mainly focuses on a team called the Zephyr's. An interesting watch and these kids really were CrAzy...

Liarg - Actually, that is probably too easy of an answer.  We need to come up with something convoluted, involving at least 2 or three separate votes over a 2 month time span, interspersed with random drug testing and a DNA sample placed on file in case something should go terribly wrong.  Maybe even throw a couple of intentional loop holes into the mix so a smart nation could circumvent something, causing another crisis and keeping us all talking about something.... laugh.gif

Sorry Shay, but yours is just too simple and easy to understand and implement.  Very un-governmental, ya know..... wink.gif

Daemon - Welcome To Canada! You'll come for the parlimentary democracy, but you'll stay for the pie. .
Redundancies - </spelling nazi>

Report from Canadauser posted image

24 February 2006

Prepared by Judith Gap

Forum (184,167 posts) - Wiki - Webpage

Population: 288

Delegate: Carbanousa (82 endorsements)

Diplomatic Events

Canada has decided to open an embassy with Liberalia.  Although no opening gala was planned, an impromptu party broke out.

Canada decided against opening an embassy with Spinward at this time.

Judith Gap announced his retirement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, effective March 1st.  He will be visiting all of the embassies to say goodbye.

Special welcomes to Farlane of Liberalia, Carops of Liberalia, and Avenging Angels of The Exodus.

Regional Affairs:

There has been considerable debate about the role of political parties in the region.

Special welcome to new members: evil ab, macropus, holy madness, Mackinau, Shawn Lavigne, Halo Revolution, cobalt, Shawn Chrétien, Saorse, Skojoe, Skojo, steak Fries

Governmental Affairs

Canada recently passed a "Proofreading Amendment," by which grammatical errors can be corrected without requiring a regional vote. I believe the ambassador's report may be exempt however.

Cabinet has been kicking around the idea of holding discussions of a few issues in a publicly viewable forum.

Canada voted:

FOR the UN Resolution: "Workplace Safety Act"

FOR - a Repeal of the UN Resolution: "Abortion Rights"

AGAINST the UN Resolution: "Anti-Terrorism Act"

FOR - a Repeal of the UN Resolution: "Legalise Euthanasia"

FOR - a Repeal of the UN Resolution: "Gay Rights".

FOR -  a Repeal of the UN Resolution: "The Rights of Labor Unions".

Out of Character
  • The best wishes of the region go out to Omnivorous for a speedy recovery.  We'll miss you until you return.  Then we'll do something else to you, I suspect.

Another late report. This was the last of the "Judith Gap" reports prior to his resignation.
