MARK STEYN reminds us to

MARK STEYN reminds us to fear Canada's ferocious expansionist ambitions:

In 1898 Sir Wilfrid Laurier, prime minister of America's northern neighbor, declared that just ''as the 19th century was the century of the United States, so shall the 20th century belong to Canada.''
