If I, an American citizen, were to seek asylum in Canada, I would be rejected simply because I am on disability. I'd be told to take a hike, and that would be that, because I would not be bringing a wheelbarrow full of cash with me.

They can take their hypocrisy and shove it where a hockey puck should be lodged.

Over estimating the ability to absorb so many refugees. That Trudeau's crime here. Not defending him per se. Just pointing out the obvious in a highly baiting thread.


In other words, a knee jerk virtue signal?

Nyet, just a plain jane politician. Say whatever needs to be said, to pander to the audience at hand.

Over promise, and under deliver.

Which is what is currently happening across Canada, on a host of different topics.

Not every politician says "peoplekind".

So what?

Every Canadian politician, in my lifetime, has managed to say something equally stupid, in many cases even more so then Trudeau Jr.

As anyone could point to anywhere.

However, we're discussing Trudeau and his about face, hence my comment.

That is a discussion that is impossible as long as the name of the game is to deny what causes it to happen.

This is a systematic issue in Canada. A great deal of the blame falls directly at the feet of the rules that our country has decided to follow. We can call the individual out on it (might make you feel good, but wont actually address the issue), or we can sit down and talk about why this is a fundamental issue in Canadian politics, and why it happens to every Canadian politician.

As far as turdeau, I think it's a lieberal thang lol. Got a laugh from the Harry styles :-) You have to remember that turdeau is a politician and hence a puppet for the benefit of his globalist handlers. Puppets don't have brains so calling him excessively mentally challenged would be a gross understatement. He is "brand-idiot." You have to wonder what it's like to have almost a perfect vacuum between between its ears. I say almost for the sake of that one brain cell that's dying alone in there.

Cheers - Dave

I've only crossed the Canada border once.
I got the full shake-down.
No real interest in going back anytime soon.
I can travel back and forth to Mexico with minimal hassle.
There aren't even border guards on Christmas.

The same thing happened to me back in 1972. Not going into Canada, returning to the US. We had to sit there for 3 hours not allowed to speak among ourselves. They searched the car, even sifted through the ash tray looking for marijuana seeds.

I lost my Mustang back in the 80's because my brother had let his hash pipe in my car. Confiscated it and we were on our own at the NB/Maine border. We had to find our way back to NS sans transportation. Mind you that was the Ronnie Raygun years. Took thousands to get the car back. I'm pretty sure we can one up Americans easily when it comes to border crossing. My experience was over 30 years ago. I can't see it getting any better. BTW I have been back a couple of times. Didn't hold it against you guys.

I had mine stitched in the seam of shirt collar.
That was my main reason for going there.
Got away with it, but they were onto me.

Would beleive the liberals want to get rid of the rule that only Canadian citizens can vote.

Some places in the US are trying to do that. Only legal for local elections so far. I even saw this guy from Univision on Fox News. He says he is an American citizen so he votes here and then goes down to vote in Mexico. Dual citizen?

In the past couple of months I have seen 3 or 4 people admit that they vote in multiple states. It was like, "I lived there but now I'm a resident here. I still own property there so I still vote there also." It almost makes sense.

We either need to find a way to crosscheck the voter rolls or just accept it. There is almost no way to catch these people.

I can see that. I worked with a guy 15 years ago that was a duel citizen. He took both seriously. I'd wager he voted in both countries. No prob.

Driver license and national registration? It not so much dual citizenship that bugs me, it just the way some political platforms are undermining the way things should be and that have worked.

There actually anti terrorism laws here that have strict penalties all the while Truduh willing rehabilitate ISIS insurgents and even give Omar Kadr 10 million due to discrimination under that useless charter that his father made.

There a current issue with immigration right now as we speak, and mainstream news ain't covering it out then a few municipal new outlet have. Oddly enough for any immigrant is the lack of low skilled jobs that aren't available these days.

50000 jobs were lost due to minimium wage increase that the liberals put into place in past Feburary.

Political processes aren't really my strong suit. Also they are trying to move alot of these immigrants to northern Ontario, which is pretty barren and ain't so diverse ether.

Since Trudeau's massive reforms take us back to pre 2012...how did we make it to 2012 in the first place if the pre 2012 system was so bad for Canada?

As for Khadr, be thankfully it was only $10 million. If the government had allowed that to proceed to the courts, it would have most likely been a significantly larger sum (not including the increased legal fees). Something that is always neglected when the topic comes up.

Minimum wage? That is Provincial jurisdiction. I'm not quite sure how the federal government can take blame or reward for it.

Unable? Or unwilling? There is a bit of a difference...

Now then, are American voters unable to? That's, seemingly, another question. If enough American voters said it should happen, it would. Politician are, after all, cowards for the most part...they like being employed.
