    Trudeau wants an Election this Fall. Doesn’t matter Canada’s on borrowed time. I think we’re done being the third world’s refuge. Sucks, but no Canada day for me. Let it rain, I can survive anything anywhere I just want to relish in the fact that my enemies can’t.

  6. CHINADA is finished with colorface in Ottawa

    No mention of the years of deficit spending since 2015 that left our country in a weakened economic state and the knee jerk spending policies since Covid 19 became a pandemic that have resulted in an estimated Trillion dollar plus debt and $250 Billion dollar deficit this year alone. Incompetent and inept political leadership from Trudeau and Morneau have crippled Canada for the foreseeable future. Our children and their children will be paying for their inability to properly manage the Canadian economy.
