The more manic French Canadians in our community are suing one another this week.

The president of our fantasy HOA didn’t like what Groupe des dix wrote about him on Facebook, and his longstanding preference is to issue lawyers’ letters whenever he takes offense. You can easily imagine this guy as your nightmare retiree condo neighbour, back in Canada, firing off opulently crafted jeremiads over every perceived slight. It’s all rather amusing.

Fortunately, being Anglos, we’re well outside the linguistic blast radius. I tend to keep to the English-speaking Westerners, of which there are several.

They’re crazy too, of the Trudeau-is-secretly-a-Muslim variety, but that also has its charms. At least they’re not threatening to vandalize each other’s property. And they drink better whiskey.
