Canada Still Sucks!

I’ve said it many times before and I will say it again and I will keep saying it as it only keeps getting worse and worse: Canada sucks! Now I read in the news that the gov’t is slow in evacuating citizens from the chaos in Libya; doing it’s usual half-assed job and lagging behind other nations. At least 12 other countries began getting their people out days ago, incl. the UK and China who used frigate ships and military planes. Meanwhile, this stupid country said(like they also did in the uprising in Egypt) you’re basically on your own; find your own way back(and the ones they did make the effort to finally rescue in Egypt they only got them half way, to Europe,and made them reimburse them the cost at 2000$ each!) and Canadians have been getting out by help of other countries evacuating their own nationals, incl. the Americans, British and others, as this gov’t doesn’t give a crap and couldn’t care less about their citizens abroad(or for their citizens here, either!). As well, the Canadian embassies are only open and available from 9-5pm and only on weekdays and have been notoriously known to not answer the phones in a crisis,and are so useless Canadians abroad in danger are being advised they’d have better luck and success by approaching either the British, Australian, American, or even the Dutch embassies for help.I can see why mogul Conrad Black renounced his Canadian citizenship,and I saw on the news they interviewed a Canadian in Libya who refused to leave; even she would rather stay there than come back here! This country really sucks! I’d leave if I had the $$!

As well, another disturbing news item: our gov’t continues to be a “puppet” to USA and have been discovered secretly  sharing citizens’ personal info with American gov’t and  airport security, so that our people can be placed on the American’s “no-fly” lists without cause and without our knowledge or consent..It incl. sensitive info being shared  such as criminal records, medical issues, police involvement, etc. things they have NO business sharing with a foreign gov’t! There is no respect or protection for people’s privacy, legal rights,and freedoms here much anymore. It is becoming more and more a Police State, Nanny State, Big Brother gov’t all the time, steamrolling over citizens rights and privacy more and more.

  1. Canada also sucks because it is failing to provide a decent quality of life for millions of its people, despite having a vast landmass, abundant resources, and a tiny population. Canada’s child poverty rates are inexcusable, as is its level of under/unemployment. Then there is the issue of its grossly shallow, materialistic, and increasingly dysfunctional culture.

    Unfortunately, most Canadians, indeed the rest of the world, have been duped into believing the nonsense about Canada being “the best country in the world”. Considering the overwhelming majority of Canadians never travel, especially to Western Europe were they’d get some perspective, it is easy to see why they would believe this when all evidence points to the contrary. As for the rest of the world, Canada keeps selling its resources to much more powerful states on the cheap, so Canada won’t be called on it’s little charade of pretending to be a democratic, prosperous, and progressive country.
