If America got off their asses and stood against the encroaching police state, Canada wouldn't be attempting the same.
Unfortunately Canada follows suit with the US. We don't like it but it's a fact.
US wants to lead? Then lead by example.
You think that Canadian's do not care about a police state because American's don't care about their police state?
I think that they do not KNOW about the police state. I think the average person doesn't realize what is going on to the least bit, in our country,
because they are too hung up on materialism. Just like the rest of the world. It is not US who is to blame here, it is our own pacifism. People just
do not want to wake up, or are not ready, to see. If they where they would have noticed that Vic Toews is a pervert and he pushed this bill last time.
They would notice that the economy is only steady because we have a small population. They would notice that Stephen Harper has prorogued government
more times during his majority than all the other past Prime Ministers combined. Our government is making a mockery out of democracy and they aren't
even trying to hide it anymore. Canadians need to STOP looking at the USA and look at where we are.
It is funny, actually, I read about our new passports and how they contain RFID chips, and then scrolled down to read people's comments and every
post was a positive and excited response. I am not saying that every government ruling is a step towards a deeper police state but the fact that it
could be, under Harper I fear this, is chilling to the bone and most people are just like "meh".
