Expat Announcement Centre
|An Invitation from Foreign Affairs Canada||
Canadian Expatriates, its contributors, and readers have been invited by Foreign Affairs Canada
to participate in a series of eDiscussions. The current topic is “Showcasing Canadian Culture and Know-How Abroad
We are asked to consider the following questions:
What role does Canadian culture and know-how play in our foreign policy?
How might the government best promote Canadian talent and expertise in the world?
The eDiscussion runs from April 4 to May 6, 2005. At its conclusion, a summary of the discussion will be sent to senior policy planners.
The Expat admin team encourages its readers to join in the eDiscussion at the Canadian International Policy website.
|Call for Contributors||
The administration team is currently searching for Canadian expatriates who would be interested in contributing to the Expat Blog
. The subject matter is wide open, but must remain family friendly.
If you are interested in joining our blogging team, please send an email

Teddy Bear's Picnic
Remember this post
and this one
Now Fuzzy Wuzzy has struck Alaska:
Geri Anderson was sitting in the computer room in the back of her Sunset Street home when she heard a noise in her kitchen just after 9:30 p.m. Sunday.
She went to the kitchen to investigate and found a black bear, eating garbage and licking the plates from her family's rib dinner, a few hours before. The bear turned around and snorted at her.
"All the bones were in the kitchen garbage, and he had it spread out all over the floor," Geri said. "He had a pretty good mess going by that time."
