Canada on paper may still be a country -- but there's something wrong with this country," said Louise Beaudoin
MONTREAL -- By a perilously narrow margin, Quebeckers heeded pleas for national unity and voted against secession Monday, sparing Canada a traumatic fracture but leaving the French-speaking province split down the middle.
With more than 99 percent of the 22,400 polling stations reporting, the federalists, with 2,339,414 votes, led by 50.5 percent to 2,294,145 votes, or 49.5 percent
canadians really are the truth north strong and free
OTTAWA (CP) - Canadians worry federal anti-terrorism powers could be used to invade personal privacy, unfairly target minorities or turn neighbours into snitches, a government study has found.
The act allows the government to brand individuals and organizations as terrorists, imposing stiff penalties against anyone who participates in their activities or assists members of the groups.
The law also gives police the power to make "preventive arrests" of those suspected of planning a terrorist attack. And it requires anyone with information relevant to the investigation of a terrorist act to appear before a judge.
I say that it's dangerous for our rights and freedoms," one participant from Quebec City said.
$1,658,300,000 have, and will have been wasted by the Liberal Government in the ongoing attempt to licence and register the firearms of Farmers and Duck Hunters in the name of Crime Prevention!!!!
"The government should not give previous warning of its actions but act and explain things later." ~~Jean Chrétien
As deputy chairman of the NATO Parliamentary Association's Committee on the Future of the Armed Forces, I am well aware of some of Canada's other military embarrassments, including the fact that as yet our frigates have no helicopters capable of protecting them. And including the fact that Canada doesn't have enough lift capacity to get the equipment it has to where it is needed without borrowing it or renting such capacity. And also including the fact that we now must count on the Americans to refuel our jets in midair, because Canada doesn't have tanker planes anymore. Trust me, the list goes on.
These are our allies, and they know we are cheating. Canadians want a stable, peaceful world, but we aren't willing to keep ourselves fit enough to contribute to maintaining that kind of world.
The Canadian Armed Forces is collapsing - not might or could collapse but is collapsing. The problems with the navy's marine helicopters that dogged Jean Chretien during his tenure as prime minister are only a sample of the problems facing today's military.

Not trying to be rude, but just trying to offer an honest opinion from an American perspective......
We could care less what the Canadians do....Seriously...They are Crown sympathizers, always have been, always will be.
You know why Americans hate Canadians soo much? It's because of fear, that's why. Canadians could stage a hostile takeover, and NO ONE would notice. Would you? I can not differeniate a Canadian from an American.
Since we cannot identify them then they all are suspect. Hey , if they wanted to be "free" then they would not of sided with the crown would they of? No, they just want to reap the benefits of America's victory, whilst not giving ANY of the sacrifices.
For that simple reason alone- We should watch them as close as we can!

Charlie Murphy, forget all the crap about Canada not being able to defend. Modest militarys such as ours have a proud history of being innovative and resourceful.
