Suppose I hadn’t left Canada and moved to Australia

This is one of my potential alter-egos. It is Bob Bossin, who I remember from my days at the University of Toronto and in whose wider – much wider – circles I travelled. An enchanting fellow but the gravitational pull of all of my then associates would have made my own political migration much more difficult if not actually impossible. This is his Wikipedia page. A genuine banjo player who made a career of it. His warmth and charm comes across in the vid. I wish him well personally, but not politically.

What is also interesting to contemplate is that had he come to Australia as I did, he might have ended up a supporter of Donald Trump. Life is funny like that.

Might add that the Greens won the by-election.
