  1. True....and the ironic part for this topic is that far more Canadian women have sought and received thousands of abortions in the United States because of various barriers to "abortion rights" access in several provinces.
  2. True...and this is where abortion as an inalienable right in the U.S. begins to break down. Health care professionals have enumerated rights that trump mandatory abortion services. Pharma developed safer abortifacients and morning after pills to provide another option, but some pharmacists refuse to dispense. Plan B is a prescription free "morning after" alternative. Abortion and gun rights...it never gets old !
  3. If the U.S. Supreme Court strikes down Roe v. Wade, it will only be correcting a self inflicted mistake, as unlimited access to abortion is most certainly not a constitutional right. Even health care is not a constitutional right, not even in Canada. As for the leak, suspect political motivations for mid-term elections....Democrats are sagging badly with Biden and need a rally cry. Roe v. Wade was also leaked...so not a big surprise: https://www.npr.org/2022/05/03/1096097236/roe-wade-original-ruling-leak Canadian women will still have abortion access in U.S. states that legalize (e.g. New York). Before tightened border access in the early 2000's, Canadians sought abortions in the U.S. by the thousands each year.
  4. Somewhere along the line, Americans lost sight of founding free speech principles, and I would hope that the Twitter acquisition by Musk will help restore some bedrock tenets in the private and public square: And yes, that includes hate speech...sorry Canada. Twitter will still have content limits for economic and legal reasons, but causing "progressive" meltdowns should not be one of them.
  5. Canada to buy F-35 JSF after all the Trudeau drama.   Suckers !

      That is so typical of the idiot Liberals at the helm…

      What once was a 9 bil investment, is now looking at 19 bil...had we bought them when the conservatives were in power we would have received all of them by now...but ya i guess they did not like the 9 bil price tag to cheap.....why can't we just fix the procurement process first....or can it be fixed...

  6. When I was a kid back in the 1960's, we played a world conquest board game called "Risk!". The board was basically a simplified political map of the world and I always wondered why the Ukraine was always depicted so oversized. Maybe 20th century world wars and Cold War just made it easier to map Ukraine in such a way. Turns out that Russian leaders have been jerking Ukraine's borders around going back to the Czars. Then it was Lenin, Stalin, and Khrushchev's turn to expand the borders for various important (Russian) reasons. So lets see how this latest trip down memory lane turns out.
  7. Cook more popcorn and watch Putin consolidate the Russian Federation objective. Ask NATO deadbeats if they are serious about defence spending yet.
  8. Nope again...NATO members agreed in 2014 (Wales Summit) to meet minimum defence spending levels as a percentage of GDP. Canada is still one of the deadbeats.
  9. Nope....Canada is doing far less because it cannot do more....purposely chose this path over many years. Nope again....Several U.S. presidents beyond Trump have consistently admonished deadbeat NATO members for their defence spending levels. Canada cares more about getting U.S. defence spending contracts (e.g. F-35 JSF) than investing in its own military.
  10. Canada has its own priorities...happy to still be a NATO deadbeat...costs nothing to whine about Putin and what the American presidents should have done. Canadian truckers got more attention than Putin.
  11. Sanctions are partisan politics and not very effective....just window dressing. Americans will not go to war for Ukraine...or for Chrystia Freeland.
  12. Trump correctly called out NATO deadbeats like Canada that served to embolden Putin in the first place. Send Christia over...then start whining about what Americans should or shouldn't do.
  13. Obama = Putin invades Crimea Trump = Russian troops get bombed in Syria Biden = Putin invades Ukraine Meanwhile, Canada's NATO capabilities have been seriously degraded by years of neglect and deadbeat defence spending. Send Christia Freeland over to defend her beloved Ukraine.
  14. Canadians of all stripes have that freedom regardless of government's political and social theatre. People are being "exposed" every day.
  15. Oka did not get this much international attention. Oka did not cause similar actions in other nations. Oka did not trigger the Emergencies Act.
  16. The U.S. did not declare a national emergency and impose martial law for the entire country. Trudeau overreached after local, provincial, and federal government screwed up policies and police response to begin with. Epic failure....
  17. Punishment for protesting in Canada...
  18. It is still martial law by any other name because "ordinary law" has been suspended for the entire country. Bank accounts are being frozen. Either way, the U.S. didn't declare a national emergency because of protests. Canada's government lost the bubble.
  19. Martial law in Canada...not the USA. ...more deflecting...
  20. Sure....that's what the Romans told Jesus before crucifying him.
  21. Canada's government certainly seems more unstable and unreliable. Using the nuclear option to suspend liberties and freeze bank accounts telegraphs an underlying incompetence for managing protests and blockages, something that Canada has experienced before without such drastic measures. During the October Crisis, American troops were placed on standby at Fort Drum near Watertown, NY in case Pierre Trudeau screwed things up.
  22. Doesn't matter....Canadians had the right to protest long before Covid, and many have done so for decades. And that includes civil disobedience. If they get arrested, so be it. Others will do the hard work to protect freedom and liberty while you stay safe.
  23. And yet, you expressed concern about their future opportunity to cross the border into the U.S., where protests and liberty are very much treasured (and protected). You are seemingly unconcerned about the harm your government(s) have done with Covid policies and mandates for nearly two years.
  24. Been contributing around here a lot longer than you. Trying to silence those with an opposing view never works here...this forum is much better than that. Canadians have been traveling to the U.S. during the entire epidemic...vaxed or not.
  25. Let me guess...you're so worried about them being able to visit the USA too...because that really matters !
