Adieu, Montréal Grand Prix

Paul Jané is pissed off about the cancellation of the 2004 Montréal Grand Prix due to government regulations forbidding tobacco sponsorship.

Wow! Who could have seen that coming? You mean, the filthy capitalists who run Formula One actually didn't kiss off the guys who pay the bills, but instead kissed off the country that gloms all those tourist dollars.

Politicians always want to look like they're doing something about public health problems and addictions, rather than actually doing anything about them.

Get ready, Canada, pretty soon you won't even be able to watch Formula One on television (unless you get an illegal satellite dish). All curling! All the time!
