Canada: A Dead Country Walking

Original Article

Posted By: Hazymac, 2/24/2020 12:54:32 PM

Canada is presently in the throes of social and political disintegration. A left-leaning electorate has once again empowered a socialist government promoting all the lunatic ideological shibboleths of the day: global warming or “climate change,” radical feminism, indigenous sovereignty, expansionary government, environmental strangulation of energy production, and the presumed efficiency of totalitarian legislation. Industry and manufacturing are abandoning the country in droves and heading south. Canada is now reaping the whirlwind. The Red-Green Axis consisting of social justice warriors, hereditary band chiefs, renewable energy cronies, cultural Marxists, and their political and media enablers have effectively shut down the

Good! Maybe I can afford to go fishing and camping up there, again. And just maybe they'll be more courteous to their neighbors. Seriously, this is what happens when you elect Justin Bieber to 'lead' your country.

Many years ago, I led a working group in an international standards committee. I had dinner with a Canadian engineer when we had a meeting in SanFran, back when it was not such a disgusting place. I was surprised when we were discussing Canada that he suggested, "I think that eventually Canada will become part of the USA". It had never occurred to me, and he seemed quite genuine and convinced that it would happen. We discussed it a bit, but I didn't take it too seriously. Frankly, at this point, perhaps BC, Yukon and Alberta would be decent fits, but the eastern parts are a totally lost cause, in my estimation. We wouldn't want to tackle those loons. Well, some of the NE, extremely rural areas, Labrador and Newfoundland, I haven't been to, so not sure, but the parts around the Great Lakes.....no, thanks.

Too true, #3! I'm afraid you're right, that refugees from Canada will be the next wave of illegals crossing our borders. Socialists will never be happy, not until they rule the entire world-and then destroy it.

My brother and his wife live in B.C. They concur that the descriptions in Solway's analysis are accurate. They also concur that a political crisis is in progress and that Justin Trudeau is ignoring it because he doesn't know what to do to stop the mayhem. Indeed, Canada is becoming a zombie nation. There is a movement developing in Western Canada to leave. Wexit is gaining momentum. Presuming that British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Yukon are in on it. Notice that our own msm is hiding this crisis from us while they bludgeon us with the coronavirus scare and primary election results. They certainly don't want to be seen as reporting another failed socialist experiment.

Just got back from a cruise. At one time I was eating lunch alone and was seated very close (our tables were 6” apart) to a Canadian couple and a couple from Scotland. They were deep in conversation and I ignored them until suddenly their voices lowered. The conversation had turned to the United States and they were both freely criticizing both our country and president. The man from Canada said that the US had had it good for the last 30 years and now it was the rest of the world’s turn. Because, you know, fairness and all. I got up and left in disgust. Someone remind me again what Canada and Scotland have contributed to modern life as opposed to America?

Had to chuckle a bit about one posters fishing comment....been a few years now, but the wife and I went to Lac Suel in Ontario o a fishing lodge...It was beautiful, the lake, the area, the lodge, friendly people all about and definitely great fishing...my wife (after I told the guide she wasn't much of a fisherman) ended up catching two record size walleyes..they had a process if you released the fish the Gummint would send you a certificate...she has two now, what did I catch? Not so much, but we filled our limits every day, had superior shore lunches and the guide was Indian, who was born on the lake and knew every spot...Anderson's Lodge it was..

I spoke with a man from Canada a few weeks ago while in the clubhouse at my golf course, and he was bad-mouthing Trump and all in favor of his impeachment and removal from office and was mad because they senate would bring in witnesses, and that Russia was involved, etc and so on and it was apparent he just watches CNN around the clock and had no clue of reality. I did not engage him in a debate and simply told him that I was not paying too much attention to any of it and that he might be right. I felt that this guy was the tip of the iceberg and just one cube from the ice tray as far as Canadians go. They deserve what they get from whom they elect.

imho, This is a sad tragedy. Canada is a beautiful country with an abundance of natural resources (although it does have very cold winters, especially in the more northern regions). In a way, this story reminds me of San Francisco, and more generally, of California. Spectacular places destroyed by liberal politicians.

The whole anti-US thing lives in Ontario and points east. They control the federal gov by sheer population (hello electoral college and senate). I am as of November a US citizen. My family resides in Alberta and would happily join the USA if invited. Normal US Immigration rules should apply. Please do not judge Canadians by the attitude of Ontario and Quebec who think entirely too highly of themselves.

I have had to travel through Toronto on international flights in 2018 and 2019. Both times, I was subjected to long delays and had to go through security twice on one occasion and three times the next. Once, Canadian security forgot to stop my boarding pass; my wife and I missed the flight and had to spend the night in the airport, sitting up in the departure gate. The security measures were only for flights gong to the United States. Call me crazy if you want, but it seems to me that these measures were instituted by the Trudeau government. It was never this crazy before that. I may never return to Canada. On my next international flight, I'll make sure that I don't travel on Air Canada. They've gone nuts up there.

I believe it is correct, I have heard that 90% of Canadians live within 100 miles of the US border. Only at Calgary did I find a nice big city well away from the border, about 130 miles, and of course, Edmonton, which is farther away from the US border yet. Seems like they are the only really Canadian cities away from the border, but maybe I am missing something, no expert on Canada just been there a few times. A few years ago, I was visiting the Sault Ste. Marie area, and we drove over to Canada. We headed out north just to see what was there. Within about 30 miles, literally everything ended, no more homes, just trees. Eventually we came to a gas station trading post, a giant log cabin building. Nothing else north of there just a vacant highway on the north shore of the lake, a few buildings scattered miles apart. Amazing. Everything there is at the border, peters out very quickly as you go away from it.

Canada has been headed this direction for a long time. The UK was becoming a socialist country, advancing the agenda of past politicians following the Saul Alinsky agenda. Canada follows the similar trend of Europe, down the socialist highway. India greeted President Trump by the thousands because India is now going to a more capitalist's system. Europe is also regretting the EU system of a few running the entire continent. Now that the UK has left the EU others may follow. Canada will change directions in a few elections.

I must have good luck. I get to Canada frequently by most standards and find Canadians to be great neighbors. The summer of Trump's first term I was in a campground and the people there were openly envious we had such a man as president and predicted the great run our country has had economically the last few years. They hated their own PM. Pot is legal there, so when in Rome... lol. I gave one of the men a Chris Stapleton CD when he gave me the flag of his ancestors Indian tribe. Threw the flag away, but kept the great memories of a nice few days.

Haven't been to Canada since 2002. What I remember most, was the enormous number of foreign families. By foreign, I mean middle eastern and third world families. Kids galore. This was right after 9/11, and the Canadian border guard just waved us through with a smile on his face. Getting back into the U.S. was just the opposite. Armed border patrol with M-16's. Searched our trunk, searched under the car, asked about a dozen questions, and we had to show them our ID's Canada looked to me at the time as a staging area for Islamic terrorists waiting to enter the U.S.

Canada is beautiful and Canadians love to travel in their campers & shop in the USA. Branson is full of them enjoying the shows. Many are lots of fun and have good humor. ...But, as they may say about us, some seem to display a tad of arrogance over Americans. Hubby worked along the border with many RCMPs and they were outstanding people, just great really.

New cases of coronavirus in China were running at 5,000 a day only a couple of weeks ago. The count of new cases is down to less than 100 a day, if you believe China's numbers. I don't, but the World Health Organization's declaration yesterday that the epidemic had peaked in China probably is accurate. Just look at the world's stock markets. China's equity indices barely fluttered during the past couple of days while the US and Europe lost 3%-4%. The threat of an epidemic in Italy appears to have pushed markets over the edge.

They waved guns at employees and bound several of them with zip ties. Detectives would later review store surveillance video that showed one of the suspects casing the place the day before. And they made off with a boatload of drugs in white garbage bags — more than 10,000 pills that contained the opioids hydrocodone and oxycodone, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office. It had an estimated street value of about $320,000.

Washington - President Donald Trump pushed back Wednesday against criticism that his administration isn’t doing enough to meet the coronavirus threat, as lawmakers called for giving disease fighters much more money than the $2.5 billion the White House has requested. A day after he sought to minimize fears of the virus spreading widely across the U.S., Trump prepared to hold a White House press conference with experts from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. He tweeted that the CDC, Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar and others in the administration are “doing a great job with respect to Coronavirus!” and accused some news outlets of “panicking markets.”

Prison bosses are reportedly worried about how to handle Harvey Weinstein while he is in jail, fearing he may commit suicide—just like Jeffrey Epstein. Weinstein was convicted of rape and sexual assault on Monday and officials at New York prisons are said to be concerned another high-profile inmate could take his own life. Billionaire Epstein hanged himself last August in his cell at Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan while awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges. Now it is feared Weinstein may have to be kept in a private section of Rikers Island's North Infirmary Command, which is for high-risk inmates, for his own safety.

Did he have any knowledge about what was going on or not?” Watters asked. “President Obama began the whole conversation

Gov. Gavin Newsom is coming under fire for an executive order he signed that redirects voter-approved gas taxes initially designed to expand transportation and infrastructure repair projects to “climate change”-related projects not authorized by the voters.

Now that’s all over,” said the insider. “Tonight he’s eating a bologna sandwich.”

Who could have imagined that the debate in Charleston on Tuesday would be worse than the previous one, the one during which Elizabeth Warren went after Bloomberg with a scythe, Bernie did his wild-eyed crazed thing, and Biden fell flat? This time Bloomberg was better, but Warren is still a shrew. And Steyer? Why is he even there? He has nothing to say. Joe Biden has lost a bit more of his disappearing grey matter; he consistently mispronounces words, loses his train of thought, claims credit for things he did not do, and generally embarrasses himself. He thinks he is
