Dispatches from the road: San Diego (Quirky California)

Only in California, eh? Where else can you buy a personal ‘paternity’ test for $345 that tells you in a week whether or not ‘the child’ is yours? Where else would a city like San Diego be considering banning cigarette smoking outside on the streets? This is a zany place, no doubt.

So Peter Mackay is now Minister of ACOA. It will be very interesting to see how Minister Mackay handles regional economic development. I hope the fact that he also has foreign affairs will be a nice intersection. Atlantic Canada needs foreign investment. Mackay is Minister of both ACOA and all those embassy/consulate trade/investment officers around the world.

Opportunity, no?
