In the new Canadian parliament, Prime Minister Jean Chretien's Liberal mandate is to save Canada's social safety net, and to save Canada. Curiously, the two goals are intertwined.English-speaking Canadians who have no desire to become Americans contrast their generous welfare and unemployment insurance with practices in this country, and their state health system with ours. Yet during the recession, both are in trouble and driving each country into deficit. Mr. Chretien means to save the system through skillful paring.

None of the members of Tokyo Police Club were even alive when "Rock Lobster" was released. But just a day after the 30-year-old group the B-52s perform at the 9:30 club, this young Canadian foursome will take the stage at the Washington venue. The show is part of the headlining tour they began to promote the new album "Champ," following a supporting tour opening for the English electronic band Passion Pit. It's a sign, if anything, of the new New Wave band's mega-fast, five-year rise to success on the back of a bunch of tracks that, at least in spirit, are not that different from Schneider and company.

Jim Balsillie apparently isn't the only Canadian businessman interested in purchasing the Phoenix Coyotes. The Toronto Globe and Mail reported that Montreal businessman Steve Stotland is leading a group of investors that wants to buy the team and keep it in Glendale, Ariz. The paper also reported that Stotland was involved in a group that attempted to purchase the Canadiens in 2001 and again earlier this year. NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly did not deny the report.

Randy Lancaster was at his desk when the computer monitor began to wobble and the floor of his Bowie office building started to sway. He and his colleagues jumped from their seats, scanning hallways and peering out fourth-floor windows. They suspected furniture movers or high winds, but the cause was more unusual: an earthquake. Had they known, Lancaster said, the group of ITT Corp. engineers "probably would have run out of the building." Lancaster was among the many Marylanders to report feeling the effects of a 5.0-magnitude quake with an epicenter near Ottawa that sent shockwaves along the East Coast on Wednesday.

AS WE FUMBLE around down here with a messy political morass, Americans should take note of the national election that occurred north of the border a week ago. In electing Prime Minister Jean Chretien and his Liberals to a third term, a solid majority of Canadians remained true to their hearts and chose to uphold the values and philosophy that have successfully guided their nation throughout the modern era. Yanks who pay a proper amount of attention to...

As a practicing physician for over 40 years, I was saddened and disappointed to read that our own U.S. Sen. Barbara Mikulski lead the effort to successfully defeat a Senate amendment that would have made it easier for individuals to get prescription drugs from Canada for general use. She argued that "opening the borders to Canadian-made drugs could endanger American consumers. " "We could be importing death," she was quoted as saying. Shame on you, Senator Mikulski! Contrary to rumors from the pharmaceutical lobbyists, Canadians are not dying in the streets from poisoned medications.

Olympian Michael Phelps has been dating a Canadian woman -- and swapping Weinergate-quality photos with her -- for more than two years, the gossip site RadarOnline reports. The site identifies Phelps' girlfriend as Montreal native Ashley Finestone, who displayed more wisdom than you might expect of a Phelps gal pal by declining to comment to a RadarOnline reporter. "Only him and I know what's really going on," she said. Can't wait until schoolmarm Debbie Phelps meets this gal. Maybe the Rosetta Stone pitchman should hook her up with some language-learning software first.
