There was a program on this on a local radio station this morning with supporters of the NDP party, the Conservative Party and an independent as guests.

The reasons why Canada rejected is pretty much exactly what is outlined in this article. Since 2000 (if not earlier) the foreign policy of Canada is indistinguishable from that of the Western Nations most responsible for promoting war and conflict so as to enhance the bottom line of Canadian based Corporations. Canada acts like a Colonial power and nothing more.

Canada was not deserved of this seat. Norway was.

Trudeau, as a big fossil fuel pipeline supporter and trampler of indigenous rights, seems so intelligent and articulate compared to trump, but like Obama, he’s a smooth talker with an agenda not a whole lot different than trump’s. I don’t have much respect for him.

Apt comparisons considering “Chrystia” Freeland former Minister of Foreign
affairs. A John Bolton less mustache. The current Minister has obediently bad mouthed China but recently uncovered he has two huge mortgages with the Bank of China’s London office. Corruption is an ever day affair with the Five Eye insiders.

Oh, the Little Prince Mr. Trudeau, tried to run but fell full frontal, when he stubbed his big toe. Well, good for the world, Ireland and Norway, you kicked the Canadians out and they’ve faceplanted, in a steamy mound of yellow snow.
