I find this quite amusing.




Canadians shouldn't blame their southern neighbour for the spike in gun-related violence in Toronto, says the U.S. ambassador in Ottawa. Any urge to point the finger at the U.S. for weapons smuggled across the border is simply misguided, the diplomat said Thursday.

"I don't think it's fair," he told The Canadian Press in an interview.

Canadians seeking a scapegoat should look in the mirror, he suggested.


Ahh. No comment. Lets carry on.




"I've been in politics a long time," said the former speaker of the South Carolina state senate. "I understand it's easier to point the finger at somebody else when times are tough."


Now that was a great statement. Again, no comment.

Those crazy ambassadors, real boobs on either side. This guy reads like a comedy act though.

Should all the blame be put on Canada? I think not.

This is like the exact same argument as blaming mexicans for gun violence in Arizona and other border states. I'd like to see how it plays out...

So why doesn't your border patrol stop them? Its hardly america's fault. I mean, yeah, it was nice that you guys sent Pam Anderson over to the US, but don't expect any favours! Yeesh!

Why doesnt your border patrol stop them, its the same thing, I mean these guys are obviously crossing the borders multiple times.

The funny thing is both sides have some blame, but this ambassador thinks the full blame should be on Canada.

Is that right?

Guns don't kill people, Canadians do!

Is this just a guess, FM or do you have a source? I'm curious.

I wonder how this guy feels about folks who blame Syria for the weapons crossing the border in Iraq.

Is there gun control in Canada? If so, that's the real problem.

When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.

Don't like Americans killing people in Toronto? Either don't let us into your country or arm your citizens. Either way, I won't be loosing any sleep tonight (I am protected by a doberman, a pit bull, and a whole lot of guns.)
