    Great story Tim!

    The part concerning the brothels was fascinating. With regards the flag I remember thinking at the time why not go with a more naturalistic look with blue seas and green maple leaf. In retrospect I think the bold graphic red and white look as served Canada well and is instantly recognizable.
