                  OK, I'll hit you with this:

                  According to Bart Bandy's Lexicon of Canadian Etymology (Don Mills, Ont., C. Farquharson, 1994), the term evolved from the French word canule around the time of the American Revolution, but its path of evolution is still not clear. Another possibility is that it rose from a mispronunciation among Benedict Arnold's forces as they laid siege to Quebec in the winter of 1776. According to Bandy, the comte de Theleme-Menteuse was one of the locals captured by the Americans. In his Contes bizarre d'Isle d'Orleans, the latter says that the Americans picked up the common phrase "Quelle canule", but they were usually shivering so hard when they said it that it came out with the "l" hardened into a guttural stop – thence a "k".

                      Now, can we get back on topic?

                      I'm grateful for this awesome place and the wonderful members here, including the Canadians. I have a lot to be grateful for this year.

                              ...figures that he'd think about hockey first, he's probably wearing the Canadiens clown suit right now...

                                I think what's off balance with the Royal Bank logo is the kerning. It's all over the place, especially between the 'Y' and the 'A'.

                                To the OP: Looking closer at your other logos, kerning...

                                Regarding the logos -- no, I'm not opposed to the first, offsetting the "P." Curiously, I don't think it's so bad when I mock...

                                Here's the thing with some clients. They find fonts. Sometimes in weird and sometimes not so savory places.

                                The only reference I can find of an LT 65 medium bold is on a free font download...

                                There are literally hundreds of high quality stock photo sites out there.
                                As well as font sites.
                                There are also lots of sites related to car wrap art that have ''cool stuff.''
