Re: "Vancouver Island should be a province," Nov. 11.
Perhaps we should go one step backward and revert to being a colony of the British Empire.
There would be many benefits to this:
? The Queen could appoint her favourite grandson as governor.
? The Royal Navy would return to Esquimalt to re-establish its former Pacific glory.
? British pomp and ceremony at our legislature would enhance our tourist trade.
? Christy Clark would be spared her short and infrequent helicopter visits to our Island.
? Our daily newspaper is already aptly named.
? Meanwhile, the Irish among us would endure by muttering into their beer.
