And to elaborate *ever* so slightly... ;-)<P>This appears to be the work of Rick Mercer, Canadian political satirist extraordinaire. It's basically a commentary on the Canadian Alliance Party's idea that more referendums should be held in order to guage what Canadian citizens want. In order to demand a referendum, Stockwell Day (leader of the CA) believes a petition of 400 000 signatures is sufficient.<P>So Mercer and his show, <I>This Hour Has 22 Minutes</I>, has started a petition to hold a referendum on changing Stockwell's name. The petition currently has 175 000 signatures.<P>Somehow I doubt that all of those are unique, or even Canadian. :-)<P>JOSH.

And when I signed it last night, it was only at 46,000. Yeah! Can you hear it? The people are shouting, "We want our leader of the opposition to be named Doris Day!"<P>I didn't know satire could be this sweet. : )<P>p.s. This is the same Rick Mercer (and co.) that convinced George W. Bush that our PM's name was Jean Poutine, which was dicussed a bit earlier in this forum.

This is the funniest thing I have ever taken part in.<P>I salute you Mercer!<P>Seriously, what can Stockwell Day do with this one? If hell freezes over and subsequently he becomes prime minister, I'll take pride in signing the real petition when it comes around.
