i know the question was directed towards angie, but i'll answer too: no, unfortunately i don't know the name of your prime minister. i was wondering if you knew the name of america's president (probably, but just wondering).
I'm embarassed to admit that I didn't have a clue, not even that there was a Labour government. Now I know that Ms. Clark is the prime minister.Originally posted by dai bread:
Just as an aside, and purely as a matter of curiosity, I didn't know the name of your Prime Minister; do you know the name of mine?
Ahem...from the website of the Energy Information Administration, part of the US Dept. of Energy: "Canada sends over 99% of its crude oil exports to the U.S., and the country is one of the most important sources of U.S. oil imports. During the first eleven months of 2004, Canada exported 1.62 million bbl/d [barrels per day] of crude oil to the U.S., the single-largest component of U.S. crude oil imports. Canada also sent some 500,000 bbl/d of petroleum products to the U.S. during this period, the most from a single country."Originally posted by Opera Tenor:

Tsk, Tsk OT, that’s sloppy sloganeering in an attempt to score a cheap shot.
You know by now that I expect more clever and inventive snideness from you!!!
