Toby Condliffe, who heads the Canadian chapter of Democrats Abroad, did have an explanation of sorts.

Perhaps they can all live together... but what is this peace and harmony thing??!?!?
People did not go b/c of the NHL lockout??? I hope this guy was laughing when he said that. Nothing against the NHL (I'm not a big fan, but do watch it on TV), but I'd be willing to bet my life savings and my dog that he is way off on that one. How many Canadian teams are there in the NHL anyhow? I'd venture to guess that there are more U.S. teams. I am sure that my Democrat friends here in the U.S. hope this Toby Condliffe stays north.
Now what was the real reason? Could it be idle threats
by those who said it (Alec B., do you hear me??)? People blowing hot air? Maybe the U.S., even with a AWOL/cocaine/DUI president from the other side, is a better place than our neighbor up north? I am really perplexed by this. Hmmmmm.
