The Golden Boy's flame acts as a signal to intelligent beings from outer
space that have been in communication with members of the DIY community
in Winnipeg. These beings have been watching us until the politics became
so bad here in Canada that they have finally sent the Mothership to
relocate many of us to one of Saturn's moons: Enceladus. It's warmer there
and there is already a Sal's (somehow Burton Cummings got a hold of this
one before anyone could stop him - at least he made it a bar).Our DIY
Light Emitting Universal Transceiver Thingys are the link to the Golden
Boy and the Mothership.

The beauty of this system is Sam Katz doesn't know about it. He ignores
the Golden Boy (penis envy?). As an aside, there is a similar transceiver
on the dome of one of the Parliament buildings in Ottawa, but Harper and
his gang are all relocating to Mars (obviously, there will be more
Americans there and therefore a more conservative planet - they have no
bars). Once the probes go around alerting people that it is time to
relocate, we all enter into the Golden Boy itself and the Mother Ship
attaches to Golden boy lifting us all up up and away.
