Queen off BC Ferries & JFK's love child
The decision was made five years ago, but it's just starting to make waves today.
According to an article in Victoria's Times-Colonist, when the B.C. Ferries became an independent company and no longer a Crown corporation, the Queen of England's photo has slowly been removed from the boats in the ferry fleet.
The Monarchist League of Canada is not happy with the decision.
And in what seemed to be a very tabloidish headline yesterday, The Globe and Mail reported in yesterday's paper:
I am JFK's love child, B.C. man says
The Province followed up today with this story:
Self-styled JFK love child has a name
Sounds like another movie to me.
