True. And technically, British Columbia has more American Settlers
than British Settlers due to the gold rush, and didn't join
Confederation until 1872 after it was promised a railroad.

So, yeah, so much for that nationalism, eh? Cascadia Forever????
Now, for something I think is far more fun!

I just saw that Vancouver's mayor dropped off some beer at Chicago
City Hall. I issue a challenge PS:One to obtain some Granville Island
beer from Chicago City Hall. The beer must be photographed in the
hackspace, and must be drank.

For every Granville Island beer that PS:One gets, I'll see that VHS
gets one as well. Let me know if PS:One is up for the challenge. If
you get arrested for stealing said beer, VHS, nor any members of VHS
will be held liable.

(Yes, I am changing the topic. I'm changing the topic to b33r and
potential win!)
