So Toth says "Yes, I split up Canada along geographical lines, which is
what our silly politicians have done for years, so it may have been a
mistake, but it is as good a scheme as anything I could think of ...
Which is why I am happy to observe this mess from the confines of North
Carolina, which is even more behind in networking technology than the area
I left - and they seem HAPPY, so who am I to burst their bubble."
