That said, it's no loss to us for haters to leave, you will save our government money.
Good day nikki

My parents decided to move over 40 years ago to Canada all the way from Germany.They said it is the best choice they ever made. It is my second homeland now and i love it here. I have lived for a few years in British Columbia,Ontario and Quebec.

Read about Campbell’s Soup plant in Toronto closing after 98 years, will be laying off about 380 workers,
soup will now be trucked in from Campbell’s Soup plants in the US.

Similar to what happened down in Leamington, Ontario with the Heinz plant.

Good for Trump and his make America great again slogan, not so good for little old Canada

Could be tip of the iceberg...I hope not...what with Nafta in limbo
and new much lower US corporate taxes. Trump is bad news for Canada.

I wonder if the truck driver has been charged yet (or will ever be charged)
in the terrible accident in Saskatchewan with a bus killing young hockey players last month.

Has the name of the truck driver ever been released?

Also anymore info on the man that killed all those pedestrians with a
rented van along Yonge Street about a month ago....any updates

Canada is bad that way....report the news sure.....very little follow up,
and names seem to be withheld more than in the USA

Gas prices at the pump have skyrocketed, thanks to Trudeau and his beloved carbon tax
cash grab....

BC hit hardest ....they are paying as high as $1.70 a litre.

Bad enough that we always pay more than in the USA but this is adding
insult to injury

Maybe you should be pushing to eliminate the carbon tax?

There would be no logic in allowing Canada to have a protectionist stance with their agriculture without a tit for tat, but it is far more egregious for America to put up with nonsensical Canadian laws that mandate that certain percentages of manufacturing have to take place there. USA is the world's largest, most prosperous market. If you are going to sell goods and services there, it darned well needs to be on an even handed basis. It's bad enough that your government manipulates the value of your currency to give your workers a competitive edge.

Well....I hope after this Covid-19 thing is over that Canada does not let Huawei install/design
any of our 5G network....should be a flat no!


Though, I'm sure Justin will let them...oh, poor China. Poor China my a$$.

Trudeau may have a say in this, but I'm sure he doesn't make the call unilaterally. Ultimately it comes down to the big telecoms - Bell, Rogers, Telus - that already have a lot of money poured into this, and Huawei typically will give them the steepest discounts / cheapest equipment. These big telecoms are lobbying very very heavily behind the scenes to have Huawei as an approved 5G vendor.
