I think I will have to skip this one. May 22 is a big day in Montreal. That day, the student will be 100 days into a strike. There's a big protest planned. A bit of context: March 22 saw nearly 300,000 students and supporters walking in support of the strike (more than half the students were on strike that day); April 22 was Earth Day where another 250,000 walked out, and next Tuesday is in the same '22' tradition, so a lot of people will be out there. It will be an anti-government walk. The walk is in the afternoon, but will be followed by events. I'm already committed up to the end of the day, where we will likely finish the day in a local waterhole. As much as I usually cancel everything for WPO, this will be a special day. I don't think I could rush back in time. In fact I have to stay out there with my friends and people, because the situation will command it.

For those of you who may not follow what is happening in our little province, today the Quebec government voted law 78, a special law, an anti-protest law - ironically the very same day Putin, in Russia, enacted his own anti-protest law - which gives huge fines to protester, just about forbid protest (making it hard to plan), and which condemn even 'incitations' to protest, that is, specifically, tweets, facebooks status, etc.

I'm FB friend with Pedal, and he suffered through many posts of mine about this strike, and the degeneration of the situation. Today, the Liberal Party of Quebec voted laws that will go down in history as fascist laws. It's very weird to see this happening in our own quiet province. The Barreau (the organization representing the lawyers, the judges, in sum the Law professional) denounced this law, like the teachers, the Union, just about anyone else except for some hardcore 'law and order' fascist.

For game purpose, Pedal could replace me, if he can be there.

First of all, best of luck to Hugo and his friends protest. Give em' hell! :bravo:

I'm all in favor of postponing the session until Hugo can continue as Japan. The war in Asia has just expanded massively with American entry and Hugo is the only one with intimate knowledge of the situation and long term Japanese Plans. This is a critical hour for Japan, Emperor Cheeto must lead his nation to victory!

I have to agree with Lobo! We can't even think of going forward without the Great Cheeto. Is there any chance we can do a makeup during the week. I could be free any evening next week except Friday.

Thanks gentlemen! Yes these are special times. It's something to witness - it's not happening in some sort of foreign country, but here! A corrupt political party who engineered a social crisis to save his ass, and vote an unconstitutional law. The government problems are: social networks (FB and many many independent sites has proven to be huge for sharing informations), an educated population, and the fact that Montreal is full of creative people. You likely know Anonymous? They also pummelled the government sites today. And so on...

It sounds like you live in Iran or Syria, not Canada. Good luck and don't get hurt. I would not expect the government to be very happy over all this.
