Welcome to Canada But Don't Get To Comfortable

Antonia Zerbisias

Welcome to Canada.

Well maybe not welcome exactly. Things have changed for newcomers to Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper's Canada. As a matter of fact, they're now also different for "oldcomers" with dual citizenship - and even native-born Canadians who somehow managed to score dual citizenship through marriage or other means.

My anarchist brother is a dual-citizen Canadian - he even participated in the vigorous anti-G20 actions a few years ago. Sounds treasonous to me...

But he still gets the most grief from the US side of the border station.

It is certainly to Commondreams' credit that it posts articles enlightening readers about events, political actors, and policies that are working to decimate Democracy and citizens' input in Europe (Greece & Spain, most obviously right now), Canada, and the U.S. Add in the horrors being faced by citizens in at least 7 Middle East nations, the instability of much of Central America, and it's so clear that The Shock Doctrine is good for nothing but death, destruction and despair.

There needs to be a global law enforced through the World Court that holds that ANY politician pushing a Neo-liberal/Shock Doctrine agenda be ousted immediately, if not hung.

I can only hope that the NDP gets back to their democratic-socialist roots, bit I'm not optimistic. Ontario's NDP under Horwath is almost indistinguishable from the Prog-Conservatives.
