PNG dancers get green light

An update to one of my posts from last week ... after a bit of a tussle between the PMs of Canada and Papua New Guinea, the customs agency here in Canada this morning has agreed to allow the dance group from PNG to come to Canada, so says CBC Radio One. The group is on their way back to Canada and will arrive on Friday for a delayed four week visit.

All well and good, but this never should have happened in the first place. Customs agents should still have been more culturally sensitive, especially when someone deferentially answers "yes" to every question. Wars have broken out over much less important things, such as soccer and cricket games.
