Sympathy for

by Yule Heibel on May 24, 2003

If the Rolling Stones really do give a free concert this summer in Toronto, in a move to rescue the city, the province, and now even the country from the mess we’ve gotten ourselves into due to our sloppy handling of the SARS outbreak in T.O. and the tainted feed scandal in the Alberta BSE outbreak, then I think Mick Jagger should come on stage dressed as QE2. The role would suit him, and he can be the ceremonial head of state just as well as she can. It’s that kind of world. Meanwhile, Time Magazine in Canada has a fetching cover on this week’s issue, asking if the world would notice if Canada disappeared. For an appropriate commentary, please read David Olive in the Toronto Star. As Olive suggests, would anyone notice if Time Magazine disappeared?
