From Sea To Sea

In the wake of the death of two Canadian soldiers, many politicians (and others) have stood before microphones and cited the expression which ‘geographically’ describes Canada, namely, “From Sea to Sea to Sea….” It would be politically incorrect today, I’m sure, to read Psalm 72, the psalm from which the “Dominion” of Canada derived its […]
