A referendum is held in la belle province on a proposal for sovereignty that would have split the country in two.
Absent Nigel Farage and his silly bus, cooler heads prevailed, with residents voting 59% against the proposal, 41% in favour.
A second referendum will be held in 1995, proving that a stupid idea is worth trying twice.

Meanwhile the Canadian dollar is stable, thank you very much.
Hovering around 74 cents US since the start of the year, the loonie is a solid alternative to the silliness currently embroiling our largest trading partners.
