A Canadian moment......

....... involving a truck, three police forces, the military, and a couple of armoured personnel carriers with missile launchers.

After a truck bearing the personnel carriers didn't arrive in Montreal on Thursday, it was reported stolen. Imagine that conversation. "Hi, I'd like to report a vehicle theft....."

The truck was spotted on a highway just to the NW of Toronto, and police followed it for 17 kms. They called in backup, just in case. "Hey Bud, better get a couple more cars out here, eh? And bring another box of donuts, in case there's a standoff with this guy."

It was OK, the driver was merely confused and "pre-occupied with personal and family issues", so no charges will be laid. "Next time call in and take a sickie, eh?"

Classically Canadian, in so many ways.
