Thanks­giv­ing is right around the corner, and al­though Ca­na­dians don’t cel­eb­rate the hol­i­day, they have a lot to be thank­ful for. Like the fact that Toronto’s City Coun­cil has fi­nally voted to strip crack-smoking May­or Rob Ford of his powers. 

And in the United States, Obama ig­nores the 150th an­niversary of Ab­ra­ham Lin­coln’s his­tor­ic Gettys­burg Ad­dress. Mean­while, the Pres­id­ent is still ad­voc­at­ing for 19th-cen­tury health care en­roll­ment meth­ods. 

Plus, the Dow Jones In­dus­tri­al Av­er­age hit 16,000 for the first time yes­ter­day. Con­grat­u­la­tions to the top five per­cent of Amer­ic­ans, who own 82 per­cent of the na­tion’s stocks— you’re even rich­er now!
