You say that now... but subtract all the business and money Canadians visitors bring in to the USA and I am certain it wont help the economy especailly for certain popular tourist areas.

I beg to differ with you as I keep getting invitations from a variety of American business to avail myself of their services at a preferred rate. The retirement community I live in down there is over 60% Canadian.

The local business's in Florida have no hesitation telling us they virtually budget their entire business around the snowbird season. Summer comes, they lay people off.

Someone (many) obviously cares, wouldn't you agree?

Having said that, I would not make a decision based upon Trump's idiotic personality. I would rather wait to see what negative effects his presidency has upon U.S. relations with Canada before selling out and wintering in the Greek Isles instead.

I'd miss the golf and the wonderful people from both countries I've formed friendships with down there. At my advanced age friendships are worth far more than any possible chagrin at the chosen leader of any country I visit.

Hillary just referred to half of Trump's supporters -- which would equate to at least 20 percent of the American population -- as "deplorable." Is this your idea of being diplomatic?


For what it's worth, I visited Canada back in June, even though your prime minister is that left-wing Justin Trudeau fellow. If I successfully managed to visit a country whose leader I disdain, I'm sure you can manage it too.

The fact that Trump made it this far has already made me question why I would want to spend any meaningful amount of time in the USA even if he doesn't win. What a terrifying time to live in or near the USA.

If he does win, I'd probably still be willing to visit particular places of interest, but really, he is such a turn-off that it permeates every aspect of being there. Can't help it. Sorry, USA.

Their recriminations over the last Bush presidency are still smarting so I'm confidant a term of Trump will have them indulging in widespread self flagellation.

At this point they've become the guy carrying a heavy box of hand grenades electing to set a few off just to lighten the load.

It's gonna hurt but it'll be cathartic if they survive.

Watch the third party vote this time around as many of the average folks down there are absolutely fed up with offerings of the two traditional parties.

I think at this point in their history they'd elect Reagan's co-star the chimp, and it even had better hair than Trump.

Trump? here in Quebec those that actually know who he is think he's an ahole.
Apparently you and some other Canadians by comments I see in other threads don't realize gun and violent crime is now WAY lower than it was 20 years ago........ If the US was "safe" 10-20 years ago, then what is it now when all crime stats are lower today?

Ok.... If the Americans like Clinton, don't complain about it in two years.

People just look at the surface and what the candidates say, I can't argue with such superficiality. This is why democracy is always disappointing. Most voters can't tell words from actions and they always have short memory.

I honest wants Trump to be elected just to annoy those who can't stand him.
