  1. Canada has the highest unemployment rate among the G7, a slow vaccine rollout, and a massive deficit. So, of course, it's time to increase immigration again! The government plans to bring over 400,000 this year, because, they say, they will help the recovery. Only there's no evidence of that. Furthermore, they're greatly lowering the requirements, which will bring in much less skilled workers, who, according to their own figures, perform much worse and rarely earn enough money to even be paying income taxes. “It makes no sense,” says University of Waterloo economist Mikal Skuterud, who sp

  3. Perhaps a better question would be How many Canadians died from exposure to agent orange, CFB Gagetown, NB is where this chemical was developed, Did you also know there is still a few Canadian military vets and their families suing the Federal government for compensation. No party has agree to see everyone who had a part in this chemical cluster fu** compensated, yours or mine... The idea was a great idea, from a military stand point( jungle warfare), no place to hide easy target...and it was not the locals that were the problem, it was the VC and NVA that was the problem.

  4. Not my concern...your domestic politics and squabbles are your own, plus you seem to make time for worrying about American leaders and politics as well. Justin Trudeau is a failure in most any context, except for legalized cannabis and dopers.

  8. The airsoft thing particularly pisses me off. These things exist because they were meant for safe play. They are toys, not weapons in ANY sense of the word. I first ran afoul of this issue about 10 or so years ago. I bought an airsoft and the heaviest BBs available in a US city to clear a birds nest from a high voltage switch without turning the power off (and blacking out a third of a major city). It took thousands of shots to remove the nest, essentially one twig at a time (we had a long time while some equipment was running to re-condition the stuff that had been off line for a year or

  11. Incidentally, I inadvertently didn't post that part but I agree it should be mentioned too. Whichever government did it, I don't agree with it. My criticism was directed at government, period. I am against that decision. But I wonder why the Liberals allowed it to continue the past five years. Why didn't they stop it? Conservatives were no better than Liberals at protecting Canadians from China. Didn't the Liberals spend a vast amount of money on the Asia Infrastructure Bank too? Helping fund projects in China? But Liberals seem to have a special love for Communist China.

  12. This point highlights several disadvantages that China faces...the West has several allied nations with more advanced nuclear warhead designs and more accurate delivery systems that can leverage those designs. The west also is deploying credible ballistic missile defense systems (with or without Canada). China is playing catch-up for land, sea, and air capabilities while trying to maintain a very large conventional army to fight a 20th century ground war that dominates its historical experience....transitioning to modern American/Western force structure concepts has not been without proble

When most people are asked what is our military for, most if not all will say to defend our nation from foreign invasion , meaning landing craft, tanks and planes coming on shore, and yet DND defends this nation along with 6 or 7 other depts on a daily basis , from cyber attacks, foreign nationals gathering intel on our infra structures, cyber networks, espionage of military and industrial targets, protecting our coast lines from over fishing, drug trafficking's, human smuggling, direct assistance of persona

  19. There is a big difference between Turkey and China. China is far more powerful. One of the reasons for China's power is it's long range planning. Another is the willingness to support regimes that no country in the west would touch with a plastic pole. Xi doesn't back down easily. Pressure from a united front of the rest of the G20 nations refusing to do business might work but getting that unity is a difficult exercise. Look at how porous the sanctions against Rhodesia were. People do not want to pay five months salary to buy an Apple computer made in Canada.

  20. Not only does Justin Trudeau not have the gravitas of his father, domestic and foreign policy circumstances are very different today. Canada use to be a legitimate middle power with credible military projection, naval capabilities, even peacekeeping resources sustained for many years. Canada had a very capable Cold War ASW role and mission for the GIUK gap, and was integrated well into NATO forces without the deadbeat apologies seen today. There was always a tension within Canada over compliance and support for American policies around the world, so succeeding Canadian governments ad

  22. Indeed....Pierre Trudeau purposely sought to counterbalance American power and influence by kanoodling with Cuba and China (among others) for perceived distancing from Washington and the favourable domestic politics that could provide, especially during the Vietnam War, despite the war making billions for the Canadian economy.

  24. Not being raised in gun culture myself, I initially found the idea of "banning assault rifles" to be kind of a no-brainer. I mean, why do we allow private ownership of weapons designed to kill large numbers of people? Turns out it is more complicated than that. If anyone is interested, hop on youtube and search for 'beau of the fifth column gun control.' He doesn't have all the answers, but does explain the complications involved in a pretty easy to follow way. As a result of having watched his videos, I understand why this legislation is a foolish waste of money.

  25. I doubt Trudeau was especially acting for Kissinger and Nixon. There was no love between Pierre Trudeau and Nixon. The book "The Truth about Trudeau" (Pierre Trudeau) has a lot of information about how Pierre Trudeau had a great interest in the USSR, China, and Communist Cuba, especially Fidel Castro. Trudeau traveled to China and was very interested in their country and system. He also traveled to Cuba and became close friends with Castro. Trudeau shunned our American allies and reduced the number of NATO troops in Europe. Trudeau was a kind of radical who seemed to operate outside the

  28. It's worth noticing how the new Pravda style media can spin black to tell you it's white. The Washington Post and others are pleased to report there is a new "Migrant facility for children" opening up to assist the huddled masses yearning to be free. Or to put it in a more reality based form the new regime is opening the border again. The flood of what once were called illegals is coming. There's already more than they can handle. So they're going back to the old Obama 'kids in cages' policy they were blasting Trump for when he took over: https://www.bizpacreview.com/2021/02/23/wa

  30. American manufacturing job losses started long before that (early 1980's), and no, China is not why "tens of millions" of Americans lost their jobs....more like 4,000,000 give or take. U.S. exports to China have also created jobs (e.g. Boeing, Caterpillar, etc.). https://www.nakedcapitalism.com/2020/01/us-loses-nearly-4-million-jobs-to-china-since-wto-entry.html I can't find any numbers for Canada (as usual), but I doubt it was "millions" of job losses because of China as well. Domestic decisions and labour costs also played a direct role in exported jobs across many industries t

  40. None of them, eh? Not a one would die... ever. No, the point is deaths are normal, everyday occurrences. Everyone you know, and don't know, will get in line to meet the reaper. Therefore it is only excess deaths that have any real meaning, in the context of covid-19. And there are some, for sure. If you really want to compare, show me a previous year where we counted the dead and tested them for viral infections. There is no comparison to what we've just done. But ohh, look how many people have died in the past year! My oh my. ... You are next.

  41. So dead-on. Makes you wonder how long the corporate globalists' media can have so many ignoring the obvious. I hear the razor-wire protected congress is currently trying to pass laws making counter media like Fox, OAN, and Remax illegal. But if you notice obvious facts like that you're a Trump cultist, a conspiracy theorist and most likely a racist. And if history repeats itself that itself will eventually become a crime punishable by re-education or depending on severity a possible trip to the gulags.

  43. That is Canada's choice...and so are the consequences. Canada's government freaked out when President Trump called them and other NATO deadbeats on this game. China is happy to have Canada as a compliant state as well. Those terms didn't come out of Washington....came out of Canada and like minded nations in Europe. Canada also invented terms like "honest broker", "seat at the table", "responsibility to protect", "peacekeeping", "middle power", etc.
