I finally found a publisher (Fer to get the Giller Prize)
Stop the presses.
Ivan's immortal letter to the editor of the Era-Banner (Newmarket)
has been nominated for the Giller. :)
The letter has to do with garbage, and in fact, it is garbage. LOL
Success is your name in print I say!
Difficulties create art, whoever the hell Art is!
Typical Canadian response. "I am so angry I'm going to write a letter to the editor!"
So I did.
And here she be:

Re: Halton court case put off to ’08, Nov. 22.
Hooray for Newmarket Mayor Tony Van Bynen for finally resolving, along with council, to “put an end to the serious and ongoing impact to Newmarket residents and businesses as a result of the offensive and adverse off-site odours from the operations and activities of Halton Recycling”.
Talking to the mayor recently, he told me he was putting “local matters” first and it’s about time.
It’s obvious they didn’t want Halton in Toronto, where the waste is from.
Oh what immortal prose.
I think I'm going to frame it. LOL.
