Yeah, VJP (thank God, it's not BJP :-) ) I am still rocking with laughter.
I suppose Roland's statement is nothing but an Irish Bull. For those who
don't know what Irish Bull is in the English language and saving them the
trouble of going to Google for the answer, I briefly state that it's a
statement that defies logic and syntax but manages to be communicative.

Roland has the experience (or, as Merwyn terms it, hallucinations) of
seeing a tiger in Canada, he will definitely see Irish bulls in Canada. I
have never been to the Toronto Zoo, though I have been to the African Lion
Safari, but there are Sumatran Tigers in the zoo, according to the zoo's
website. In that way, Roland is right in saying there are tigers in Canada,
and it doesn't matter if they are in captivity or roaming free in the wild.

BTW, I read Roland's article on Fiona Pinto-D'Souza, and I noticed that
"commas" and "hyphens" were missing from places where they should have been
inserted. I could only conclude that Roland eat them for breakfast. As the
Mathew gospel says, "Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your
 brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye?"
