About a message of God Dan to Dave Hamilton:

GD> However, I do remember that one of the specialty luncheon meat
GD> sandwiches in the Quebec area was called " un smoked meat sandwich "

Montreal Smoked Meat is one of the more valuable contributions
to the world, but it comes from Montreal's English-speaking Jewish
community. I don't know if the term still survives in Eastern
Quebec.

One that does persist is "sandwich Western," though if you want
it toasted that would be "sandwich Western a roties." Last time
I was there, "hot dog" was still in use. The Language Police are
slipping - they've been wasting their time stripping English
signs out of hospitals.
