But what do you call a group of Ontarians gathered together?
I especially enjoyed reading the letters in the New York Times about the overuse and abuse of the word “sorry.” After some twaddle, we got this excellent letter:
To the Editor:
I’m sorry, but the English have no justification for their claim to be the world’s sorriest people. Canadians are well known for their rampant use of the word.
Indeed, a collectivity of them is known as “an apology of Canadians.”
