Which should tell some of the folk here that it's not a Liberal Bastion.
But as Bob says, it's accessed from all over the world, it has had moderators from Israel, the UK, Holland, and some Canadian participation beginning, I think, with myself, an ex-pat American/Canadian. There are a couple of other regular contributors from Canada.

I try to inject some Can-Con (that's Canadian Content folks) periodically, but it rarely goes anywhere. James Denison who doesn't like me, posted a story about the Legionnaire's Disease outbreak in Montreal, claiming it was due to a dirty city. Since he's never been there, I don't know where he got the idea.

As an ex-patriot American who disagrees with the direction the US took under Bush, I've come in for a fair amount of abuse, but I recognize that as the myopia of people who haven't lived anywhere else than the US, and haven't had to cope with learning a different system of government, and learning to appreciate the differences between the US and Canada.

I actually wrote a long piece today called "There's no place like home. I don't mean there's nothing better, I just mean there's no place like it", about being from the Baltimore area originally, and now living the past 28 years in Canada and 4 years in the UK. It took me nearly 10 years to get completely acclimatized (though I still hate the really bitter winters, thank heaven we haven't had many recently). Living in a country is like living with coloured glasses on all the time. You move to another country and eventually the colour changes, and you see new things, and old things in a new way. I'm grateful for the opportunity to see things anew.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
