      Derek,
      You are absolutely correct.  I certainly have been guilty of assuming I was posting to a US audience instead of an international one.  I apologise.  It is my understanding that Canada has the same sort of laws that outlaw distillation, however it appears that your government as you say "have other fish to fry" and pretty much leave the hobby distillers alone.  We in the US are being watched by Big Brother and we don't like it.  Changing the law is our only legal option.  Alli

      The point is that many of us do work actively on way to promote
      change to legislation and please remember this is an international
      group; not American. It is not "our" cause. One of the most tiresome
      aspects of the internet is the presumption on the part of "some"
      American contributors that it is all about America. As much as I
      love my cousins to the south of here, I don't have much time for
      your political movements; we have our own fish to fry.

      Derek
