I believe the term is "boo-yah"

Margaret Atwood eloquently chimes in on Stephen Harper's comment.  The article, by the way, is adapted from the lecture that she will deliver at the Winspear on October 1st.

This gives me an idea... there are probably dozens of arts or cultural events that you can attend in the next couple of weeks, to show your support for Canadian artists.  I've created a public group on photo-sharing site called Ordinary People, and I encourage you to post photos of you and your friends participating in the arts.  Of course, be mindful that you can't necessarily photograph a performance specifically - stay within the guidelines of the event you're attending. Anyways, maybe it's a crazy idea, but sometimes you just have to do something.  I'm going to attend the ESO performance tomorrow - look for a photo from the lobby.
