  1. Canada's government bet on China (CanSino) in May, and when that failed it was very late to the vaccine procurement game from other sources. Trudeau was purposely late to get in line. Canadians are now paying for that huge mistake.
  2. Biden keeps reduced Trump refugee levels at 15,000 per year....breaks promise of 62,000.

  3. Liberals caught with their pants down....again.

      Yep.  They’ll just blame the provinces as usual.

  4. 'Moronto' real estate board to stop using term 'master bedroom' in home listings.

      That'll destroy housing prices. :rolleyes:

       

  5. Canadian bear is OCD...

     

  6. Biden stops negotiated U.S. troop withdrawal from Afghanistan...must be a warmonger.

      Fake news. Try reading your source again. Maybe go slower this time.

  7. Canada's GHG emissions increase with carbon tax for 2019....another Trudeau failure.

      It's ok to billow out tons of carbon as long as you pay the taxes.

      Right?

      It wasn't during the pandemic. It was in 2019, before the pandemic and it was only 0.2%. It was due to a growth in the economy. 

      I suspect recent increases to the Carbon Tax will have a different effect.

      Yeah that damn economic growth.  Gotta make sure that doesn’t happen.

  8. Nope....hundreds were interned at Honouliuli : https://www.npr.org/sections/codeswitch/2015/03/16/393284680/in-hawaii-a-wwii-internment-camp-named-national-monument

      If the border opens in 2 or 3 weeks I'm crossing and getting my second shot at a CVS

  10. Canada gets small COVAX delivery today...just like other third world nations.

      It really is embarrassing.  Yet we have members of this forum that defend our moron PM at all costs.

  11. Canada has lost the vaccine race....three new covid variants rage out of control.  Sunny Ways !

      Trudeau is never to blame for anything!  How dare you.  It’s all the Premier’s fault!  Everything!

  12. U.S. CDC: Do not travel to Canada, even if you are vaccinated...covid hot zone.

    1. Boges

      Boges

      We could say the same about you. 

  13. Funny Canadian message for Justin Trudeau..."shove it up your astrazeneca !"

  14. Patrons tell BC health officials to get out of restaurant...GET OUT!   GET OUT!   GET OUT!

      Not sure why they'd go to a Restaurant considering it's been their goal to put them out of business for a better part of a year.

      Lots of Canadians seem to have TDS, too. It’s really bazar

      It's deeper than Trump.

      It's pervasive bastardization of Conservative values. 

      Trump really is a symptom not a cause. 

  15. U.S. military leaders have a lot more to worry about besides China, which can't project military power outside of its region for now, but will strive to do so in the future. America's pivot to WESTPAC away from Europe strained EU and NATO relations, and Trump doubled down on the obvious with respect to deadbeats who rely too much on American military power. The post WW2 Grand Bargain has run out of gas...the Soviet Union collapsed nearly 30 years ago. Yet Canada insists that the American led "rules based order" of old must continue as before, even as the world changes around it, including
  16. Canadian MPs may posture that way, but it is not the practical economic or geo-political reality. Previous Canadian governments had the gravitas to deal with such situations to repatriate Canadian nationals...the Trudeau government has consistently underperformed in this arena. One glaring example is the hesitancy to ban Huawei for 5G networks. The U.S. is not going to engage China beyond defensive protocols for longstanding alliances in the region. Japan is partnering with Indonesia as well, but not to attack China. Either way, Canada is in a very poor position to
  17. The EU has actually increased trade with China, overtaking the U.S. as the EU's # 1 trading partner early this year. Anti-China sentiments in Canada are based on a political narrative over economic reality (e.g. "Two Michaels"). Other nations are not going to come to Canada's rescue as a trading bloc against China and their own interests. This may play well for domestic Canadian politics, but will not translate into structural change and counters for Chinese globalism, something it learned from the west...and learned very well.
  18. There is no level playing field...ever...only different degrees of competition that seeks any and every advantage. Hell, Canada is far more economically dominated and exploited by the U.S. than China, but this is far more acceptable because of history and geography ? It certainly is not because the "playing field" was level, 'cause it ain't and will not be. Fundamentally, it comes back to Canada and what it wants to be when it grows up, regardless of China. Falling back on alliances in the face of competition with more lame excuses for worker productivity, R&D, capital investment
  19. It did work out well...and the present Canadian government desperately seeks to cling to the post WW2 "rules based order" that Trump threatened to undermine by withdrawing American military and economic power from the free trade "fraud". Before this, "Axis of Evil" membership was created for those nations that purposely threatened neoliberal and neocon foreign policy / economic frameworks. Canada could not offer much in the way of raw power, but it could develop human rights R2P, honest brokering, and a commensurate "seat at the table" secondary role to other (more powerful) allies.
  20. No, both rely on a backstop of raw military and economic power, no matter how different the narrative(s) may be...to not only sustain foreign policy objectives, but to remain in a position to do so at any time when desired. Both the Clinton neoliberals and Bush neocons said to hell with the UN and pressed on with their agenda using military and economic power....because they could. Raw American power projection ultimately stems from economic power, and it has always been thus. Those without such power have to settle for the language of a lesser god.
  21. Left-wingers readily take drugs of any kind....legal or illegal.
  22. The tools of empire....Martini Henry Mk I/II accuracy to 500 yards.
  23. Canada worried about Biden's "Buy American" stimulus plan (again)...suckers !
