I know someone, now living in San Diego (California), who was in the
past saying things like "I'm coming back to Montreal before November,
and if Bush wins I'm _not_ going back". Apparently that stance has now
been backed down from, but it was plenty believable - there was already
friction between her and her husband over his wanting them to move to
California (from Montreal).

If Bush wins, it wouldn't surprise me a bit if they found themselves
fleeing. Fortunately one of them is a Canadian citizen, so there would
be no problem getting into Canada, but there will probably be a lot of
people who would, to call a spade a spade, be political refugees.

If anyone needs a contact on the ground in Montreal come November 3rd,
let me know. (While I've never had to do it, I imagine that fleeing to
another country is a lot less scary if you have a contact there.)
