But when it comes to international monetary matters, Canada has often been a very interesting case--the country that defies the trends, that demonstrates by example the hollowness of the conventional wisdom of the moment.
Right now, for example, Canada's ability to thrive with an independent dollar is the best single argument I know against British europhiles who insist that their nation must join the European Monetary Union or die.

 Abstract from 'Do Something!... Do Anything!' POLIOMYELITIS IN CANADA, 1927-1962
Beginning in 1927 and climaxing in 1953, epidemic poliomyelitis became one of Canada's most prominent public health challenges.
As epidemics worsened, their frightening public image and high personal, social and political costs generated an escalating response from provincial governments which established new precedents in the provision of free medical and hospitalization services in Canada.
Moreover, the polio threat forced new levels of federal intervention and financing, including the imposition of national standards and control in the management of polio vaccines between 1955 and 1962.

 The Usenet Guide to Beatles Recording Variations
This and the next four are from a tape believed to be the Decca audition of 1 January 1962.
Probably Brian Epstein took a copy of the session tape, and although he is supposed to have had a sample reel before the Decca date, this was probably better recorded, and it may have been songs from this set that he brought to George Martin at Parlophone.
The Beatles were under exclusive recording contract to EMI as of June 1962, and this material was first released under the ruse that it was recorded during the Beatles' Star-Club shows in April (when, though it is not well known, they were signed exclusively to Bert Kaempfert!).
