In the summer of 2000, I went to Washington DC and met some pretty amazing people during a crazy libertarian think tank week. At some point we made a couple of the American’s we met, honorary Canadians, I think over a beer, but we did make a pilgrimage to the embassy that week. Not sure any of that was “legal”, but they were very excited nevertheless, and they were disappointed in the lack of free healthcare at the embassy.
One of those lucky new-Canadians, passed away on Friday after a fierce battle with colon cancer. I remember my last few chats and emails with Francis Gibbs, chatting about the then 2012 election prospects, and my thoughts are with him and his family. What a shame - he was am amazing guy! And will think of him often. Glad I got to spend time with my family this weekend.
