This news is no surprise to me, in fact on Wednesday morning word of this was already being disseminated on Canadian news stations. However, as much
as I feel empathy toward those hoping to escape Bush's reign, I, as a Canadian, see two reasons to object. The first is that as with the Vietnam
refugees, once things return to normality in the US, the vast majority of you will leave Canada, therefore, I object to Canada being used as a means
of interim refuge. Secondly, your country's politics needs fixing, which you cannot do from here. Know this though, that the majority of Canadians
have thus far agreed with your position, and while we may not be able to influence your choice of government, we can and have stymied your
government's control of ours by our election process.
Politicians are all self-serving, every last one of them, and Canadians have come to learn this more so than ever within the last four years. We have
delivered unto them a government that demands the parties either work together or be corrupt together, and if they are the latter, we will remove them
from, or limit their power. We have done it a few times before, but considering the number of Canadians demonstrating in the streets in 2003, the
signal that we too have finally shown a tolerance level, the politicians know that complacency is no longer an adjective used to described Canadians.
So, we are aligned with the anti-neo-con American in this regard, whereby the country as a majority supports you, especially those of you who hope to
return home, but in essence you need to stay and find a way to reverse the disparity from within, something we cannot do.
