Commies:heres what Wiki says about my hometown.

$1:
Originally a Canadian Pacific Railway stop called Tenth Siding or The Springs (for the cold sulphur spring to the east), the settlement was renamed Blairmore in November 1898. A ten-year dispute over land ownership between the CPR station agent and the section foreman stunted early development.[1] Blairmore’s principal industry was lumber and, after 1907, coal. Other industries followed and on September 29, 1911 Blairmore was incorporated as a town. With the declining fortunes of the nearby town of Frank, Blairmore soon became the region’s economic centre.

One of the town’s early characters was Emilio Picariello (1875 – 1923). “Emperor Pic” settled in Blairmore in 1918 and operated several businesses, but also illegally imported alcohol from nearby British Columbia during prohibition. Picariello and Florence Lossandra were hanged after the shooting death of Alberta Provincial Police constable Steve Lawson in 1921.

Like many Canadian industrial towns in the 1930s, Blairmore had some sympathies with Communism. Canada's first Communist town council and school board were elected in Blairmore in 1933, which reformed the tax system, and refused to observe Remembrance Day as an Imperialist holiday and honoured the Russian Revolution instead. A street was named after the leader of the Communist Party of Canada, Tim Buck, a decision that was reversed by the next town council.[2]

Blairmore joined four other local towns in a legal amalgamation into the Municipality of Crowsnest Pass in 1979.



Yet they sold enough war bonds to get a corvette named after the town,the HMCS Blairmore.

It just says "tofu" in a set of japanese characters called Hiragana. Here's a description.

I'm a fan of an anime series called Initial-D in which one character delivers tofu for his dad's shop, and on the side of the car it says "Fujiwara Tofu Shop." So that's how I know it. It's the only word I can write in Japanese. :)

thnx! i know very few about Japanese and don't understand anything written in Hiragana either Katakana... although one of these symbols looks pretty similar with chinese "heart"...
yet if i wanted to write "welcome" in Japanese, i would go with old chinese 歓迎, which is also in use now. But i got no idea how the conversational sounds :? "tofu"?

Nick-the-Canadian Nick-the-Canadian:
You conservatives should get ready to have your no-good

politics insulted and rediculized by us, socialists and communists

As we see it, your the fresh meat, and your all blocking our path

to a socialist canada.
Not at all, the path leads straight to Cuba. Bon voyage. Say hi to Castro.
