Sometimes I wonder what constitutes in here, unwarranted attacks, name-calling, ignorance denied, one-liners and posts made for no reason other than
to express one's hate against others.
It is inevitable that one day Canada and the US will share in a union of some sort, just as with the EU nations. As humans progress we come to embrace
like ideologies. Some people want to refer to this an evil new world order, some like myself see it as necessary to the evolution of the human race
overcoming the us against them mentality among other things. Having said that, we have to hope that the political leaders we elect have the good sense
to recognize deleterious proposals by radicals and reject them. To some it may seem as though Canada's elected officials have negotiated away the
country, but this is far from so, for in no way are Canadians yet ready to become a part of any other country.
It is little stories like this which shows just how far from such an age we are:
From the National Post today;
Ottawa's threat to U.S.
Canada warns of massive tariffs on eve of Bush visit
The Liberal government has threatened to launch a trade offensive against Washington that could lead to duties that double the price on a number of
U.S. goods, such as newsprint, wood products and seafood...
This latest Canada-U.S. row is the result of a U.S. law deemed illegal by the World Trade Organization.
"This is an important first step of protecting the rights of Canadian industry," Jim Peterson, the federal International Trade Minister, said from
Brazil, where he is leading a domestic trade delegation. "Clearly retaliation is not Canada's preferred option. However, this is about respecting
the rules of international law."
I would provide the link but it seems too long and may stretch the page, and I don't know how to use that "see here " feature.
