Maple Leaf tartan made official . . .

Why is this man grinning? Perhaps because he senses that the Maple Leaf Tartan, which he is sporting, is about to be made official. Also, Margaret has just given him a bag containing a box containing a bottle. A bag in the blessed official tartan, to match his vest and tie. Would you believe 16-year-old Lagavulin?  Hats off to Liberal Senator Elizabeth Hubley for leading the charge on the tartan. And, again, to the Royal Scottish Country Dancing Society . . . for knowing how to show a guy a good time!
