If you go to Newfoundland you get a very different picture of that referendum. Even now, 60 years on, it's a point of contention between the rock and the mainland - and most Newfies still believe that Canada stuffed the ballot box.

(Of course the geopolitical fix was in from both sides: the UK couldn't support a bankrupt Newfoundland, and the Goose Bay airfield made it geopolitically important to the US as a staging point to Europe...)

The Newfoundland article could have gone into a bit more detail on the problems Newfoundland had with 'responsible government' and the catholic/protestant divide on the referendum rather than waste space on a WarPac Newfoundland.

This link from "how to kill a troll" about the effectiveness of love is quite impressive.
