I Really Don’t Want to Speak (Write) Badly about the Country of my Birth (Canada), Since the Canada I Grew-Up-In was a Large Country with a Small Proud Population of DOERS.
We (Canadians) Took Pride in Hard Work, Respectful Values, Family, Country & How we Conducted Ourselves on the Global Stage, while Fighting Two World Wars, the Korean War and the Silent Cold War Against the Scourge of Communism.
Now . . . A HUGE Percentage Of Canadians Live On The Dole & We Give To Other Countries What We Borrow From China.
CANADA . . . Is A Huge Territorial Country (Second Largest In The World) – with a Small Population . . . Currently at Around 37-Million People, which was Always Counted-Upon to be There . . . When Being There Was Necessary.
Canada Always Paid Our Own Way . . . Until The Father Of Justin Trudeau Created The Debt That Only Grew With Time.
And Now – Because Of A Massive Debt . . . Nationally, Provincially & Municipally – Canada Can’t Even Afford to Outfit our Military, so We’re Busy Buying Used Fighter Jets from Australia, because Canada Reneged on our Obligation to Buy F-35’s from the USA. So Canada Relegated itself to Buying the Dregs of Australia’s Used Airforce, which is Proudly Procuring our Canadian Allotment . . . Of State Of The Art F-35 Fighter Jets.
More Than That . . . Canada Has Also Reneged On Our Signed Commitment To Pay 2% Of Our GDP Into NATO.
When the Canadian Population was Far Less in Number than What it is Today, Major Countries Leaned on Canada as a Reliable Ally when we all Had to Pull Together . . . No Matter The Cause . . . Because Canada’s Allies Knew That Canada Would Be There Front & Center.
Today . . . To My Enormous Embarrassment & Sadness – Canada Is Competing With 3rd World Countries For The China Virus Vaccine.
The Last I Read (Currently) About Canada’s Place In Vaccinating Canadians, we are Beyond 40th Place in the World for Vaccinations Per Capita, to the Point, where Canada (Trudeau’s Liberal Government) Is Saying That Canada Will Not Be Able To Be Fully Vaccinated Until Sometime In 2022.
And Who Do You Think Trudeau Is Publicly Blaming . . . For Canada’s Abysmal Handing Of The China Virus . . . If you Guessed Donald Trump, you Get to be on the Liberal Canadian Pogey (Welfare) Bandwagon . . .
In-Spite Of The Facts That . . .
1 – Trudeau Wanted to be the Big Man on the Chinese Campus and Gave All . . . if Not Most of our PPE (Masks, Gowns Etc) to the Chinese, as the Chinese first Acknowledged the Virus (Of Their Own Making) . . . Trudeau Left our PPE Cupboard High & Dry.
And When we (Canada) Needed those Masks & General PPE, the Chinese were Only too Happy to Sell us their Inferior Products, which we Grabbed-Up like the Beggars We’ve Become.
Why Blame “Trump”? . . . Because Trudeau has No-One Else to Blame, so Trudeau Blames President Trump, not Because Trudeau Himself is a National & Global Screw-Up, But Rather Because Trump Didn’t Send Masks and other PPE to Canada Soon Enough, which Set Canada Back Several Months.
I Guess Trudeau Never Heard Of President Trump’s America First Policy.
2 – As President Trump was Going Full-Tilt to Create a Vaccine to Combat the China Virus – “OPERATION WARP SPEED” . . . Along with Other Western Allies, Trudeau Threw Canada’s Lot in with Communist China to Develop their Vaccine.
I Won’t Feed Stryker Dogfood Made In China.
Not Only Did Canada Lose All Of Our Money With The Chinese, we Also Lost any Chance at Being at the Top of Recipients for the Pfizer, Moderna And/Or AstraZenica Vaccines, which has Put Canada at the Bottom of the Vaccine Food-Chain.
People Have Already Been Forcibly Arrested.
In the Separatist Province of Quebec, where the Unrestricted Use of the English Language is Against the Law . . . There Is An 8pm Province-Wide Curfew, and there is No Contact Allowed, even between Neighbors, Close Friends & Family Members.
As For Restaurants . . . Forget About It. For Non-Essential Shopping, Except For Pharmaceuticals & Grocery Food – Don’t Even Think About It.
The Province Of Ontario Isn’t Far-Off From Quebec. And even Between the Maritime Provinces and the Rest of Canada, Travel Needs Government Approval Coming & Going. And in British Columbia, where Anne & Are Right Now, there’s a Partial Lock-Down Vis-à-vis how many People are Allowed in Restaurants, Mandatory Masking, Social Distancing – Etc . . . But there’s Also No Fraternizing between People Outside of your Frigging Bubble, which No-One understands How the Stupid Bubble is Supposed to Work.
And To My Great Mortification, here in LEFT-COAST British Columbia, I can Puke at the People I see on the Jogging Paths who are Wearing Masks as they Run, Including People Walking on the Sidewalks with other People or by Themselves. Even People Riding Bicycles are Wearing Masks. Talk About The “Stepford” People.
And In The Canadian Prairie Provinces . . . They’re All Over The Board On Everything.
Anne & I have Canadian Friends who Managed to Fly to the USA, Mostly to Florida to Get Away from the Winter, to Escape the Draconian Lockdowns and to Get the Vaccine.
However . . . When these Friends Fly-Back to Canada, they will Not be Allowed to Come Into Canada (Their Home) Unless they Can Prove they Have a Negative Covid (China Virus) Test No Older than a Few Days, if they Don’t Want to be Quarantined for 14-Days . . . And Even With A Negative Test . . .These Canadians MUST Be Quarantined In A Hotel (Like A Holiday-Inn) For Three Days At A Fixed Government Cost Of $2,000 Per Person.
And How Quarantined Do They Have To Be? . . . Quarantined Enough Not To Leave Their Hotel Room.
And Even Though – Statistically . . . the Spread of the China Virus Seems to be In-Freefall & Hospitalization Cases are Considerably Less – Including the Number of Real Deaths that Can Actually be Attributed to the China Virus . . . The Heavy Hand Of Big Brother Is No Less Heavy.
And While Of This Is Happening, Canada Wants to Keep as Many People as Possible Unemployed & Dependent Upon the Canadian Government for Everything. And as Many of the Small Businesses, which the Politicians & Bureaucrats Decide are Un-Essential are Going out of Business because of the Shut-Downs – The Huge Chain Box Stores & On-Line Retailers are Raking-It-In.
So How About It? . . . Do You Think It’s A Good Idea To Be Like Canada?
