Please Don’t Move to Canada

Some liberals still think Canada is a lonely outpost of sanity. They haven’t been paying attention lately. If you think you’re going to move to Canada if Trump gets elected president, you might want to have a Plan B.

We aren’t the only country to have a crazy conservative backlash!

    This person is doing the same as Mr. Harper; she is forgetting a boatload of important issues that affect Canadians everyday and focusing on the niqab. Canada winning the Fossile Award five times in a row for its praise of tar sands? It’s Stephen Harper’s doing. Canada bundling together cuts in welfare programs, the purchase of expensive cuckoos for the Canadian army and a law allowing the government to spy on everyone on flimsy pretexts with a side of budget? Stephen Harper. Stephen Harper loves passing buffet-like laws so much, we have used “mammoth”, “mastodont” and “monster” to describe them and we are running short of synonyms. His budgets look like turducken, with cuts to environnmental federal programs, suppression of gun control laws, cuts into any women’s health program that provides abortion and tax cuts for the rich stuffed into it with 42 herbs and spices. The opposition is supposed to read the 400-page bills overnight just to see them passed as is anyway thanks to the Conservative majority. His Enviromnent minister once told the press that polar bears are not vanishing because her dad sees them around his house all the time. Of course she doesn’t believe it’s because of the climate change that thaws the polar ice cap, which keeps polar bears from hunting seals on the ice and obliges them to rummage in the garbage instead. And what about conveniently forgetting to repair federal infrastructures that happen to be in a province that didn’t vote Harper? Does the terms “crumbling bridge” rings a bell? Well, the most used bridge in Canada had to wait until bits of it was falling in the water to be repaired, and by then, it was too late; it had to be replaced. So because apparently it’s a new bridge, Stephen Harper and the Conservatives will change its name, build it as cheaply as possible and charge a toll. But look! A niqab! So if you don’t especially like Muslims, you are still not safe in Canada.

    Well she mentioned Bill C-24, one of the most draconian pieces of legislation a progressive democracy has ever passed. Being able to revoke Canadian citizenship? It’s just wrong on so many fronts. It’s fundamentally wrong for so many reasons, you can’t treat people differently like that, and you use a justice system to deal with crime, not just exile people.

    But you’re right it’s about other things too like Bill C-23, the “fair elections act” is extremely dodgy and makes it less likely for voter participation among the (overwhelmingly liberal) disenfranchised youth.

    And then you have C-51, the TPP agreement, that we don’t know anything about which should ring alarm bells.

    However an AJ+ video can only cover so much and she focussed on the two main things that might personally affect her more than other Canadians.

    Hopefully tomorrow will bring a Harper-free Canada.

    Perhaps Mr. Harper (and those Canadians who support him) should take a few minutes to read the Canadian Bill of Rights… similar to the U.S. Bill of Rights.
