Well, two Toronto filmmakers called me yesterday because they're doing 
research on for a new tv show they're producing about (fictional) rock 
bands.  They're trying to figure out where to set the tv series.  They were 
talking about Halifax, but I said "Oh Halifax is so five minutes ago," 
and suggested more exotic locales like Yarmouth (so all my relatives can 
work on the show), Moncton, Thunder Bay or Regina.  

Just trying to help you guys keep your little secret.
