    3 weeks late..

  3. Lady closing the border to the general public will not slow down the flow of goods. If anything goods will flow faster. No traffic.

  4. Seriously? But Roxham Road is open to whosoever will?
    Message received.

  5. Roxham Rd must be “essential”

  6. so i’d guess roxham road is “necessary”

  7. Hire Canadian

    • @Mike Boot That’s the same argument they used for slavery.

      @Mike Boot yeah, cuz underpaid and expendable immigrants are a better option… No, just hire Canadians and pay a fair wage.

    • @Kevin D. Najera we have had te same workers for over 20 years. Same guys come back. We pay housing and internet and free super on weekends and free drives to town. Yes they get minimum wage but yu have to realize in reality with housing and everything else we are paying over 20 dollars an hour, yet produce prices havent rose at all in decades. If i could hire local and could count on them fro 60- 100 hours a week i would but it wuld be too much headaches to be worth it. Canadians are simply looking for free handouts and not willling to do any work. Plus these guys are used to the extreme temps and handle it all day long. Canadians cant take it. Tried on few occasions but smply if we dont have migrants no farmers are going to grow, only the small hobby farms which will not add up to any volume. It will be a high priced year regardless of how it goes now

      @Mike Boot I would work for $20 an hour! I’m Canadian currently living in Ontario but if you guarantee me $20 an hour on full-time… it’s basically the conversion to what your expenses are am I right?

    • @Mike Boot sounds like you didn’t hire the right Canadians!

    ” we’ve heard from the president.……. Through a tweet”

    2020 in a nutshell

    • @Flora Posteschild my mind may not be “great”, but it is able to “grate”. It is able to sift the nonsense from the BS pedalled by MSM.

    • Mark Lindenthaler Haha, kind of surreal to imagine that when the site was first founded it, would eventually become the defacto platform for public figures to reach out to the world.
      It really is the Age of the Internet I guess.

    • ​@Pal VB Nonsense is everywhere.

    • Flora Posteschild you clearly known nothing about Justin Trudeau sure he is not as assertive as other leaders but he is still better than the orange of a president

    “Essential traffic” = Roxam Road illegals.

  19. Oddly not closing Roxham Road, lying shills that govern the nation of Canada.
