How many light bulbs does it take to screw a conservative



Apparently Canada led the pack last night in support of the ceremonial "earth Hour" according to the CTV article here.

"More than 100,000 Canadians registered via the Internet for Earth Hour -- another 775,000 signalled participation via Facebook website -- putting Canadians at the top of the global participation pack."
