CANADA: Seattle-based agents of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency mistakenly stormed Vancouver’s English Bay Retirement Village today believing it to be a marijuana grow op but 79-year-old Ida McCook was having none of it.
In her own words, Ms. McCook “clobbered a few of those buggers” and “told them to get the H-E-double-hockey-sticks out of Canada.”
“We had just served low tea with jammy scones and finger sandwiches when all these men in black with small Stars and Stripes badges on their shoulders burst into the library room,” said Marny Bales, Manager of the Village. “Everyone was pretty scared.”
“But then Ida…Ms. McCook…just stood up out of her chair and starting walloping them. They backpedalled to the door pretty fast I must say.”
