Celebrating things Canadian.

Post by neverfail » Sun Feb 12, 2017 4:07 pm

Canada’s example to the world
Liberty moves north

It is uniquely fortunate in many ways—but Canada still holds lessons for other Western countries.

Thanks Cp. Quite a bit of that I have been posting on the Does Shiraz wine come from Iran thread has been off topic about Canada so I thought we should have this seperate thread on the topic.

In Canada everything always comes late:


The mail, political campaign promises, treaties with First Nations peoples, the cheque in the mail, spring.


Political currents also come late to this country.




Who knows? In a few years we may even have our own wall to keep people like Whoopie Goldberg out, just in case she finally decides to do what she said she'd do if Trump won the election.

Spring may come late, but winter more than makes up for it by coming so early, right?

Spicer, whose performance as press secretary has been lampooned by actor Melissa McCarthy on Saturday Night Live, then held a press briefing to relay the day's activities.

During his address, which he was reading from prepared notes, Spicer then offered an alternative name for the Canadian leader.

"Yesterday the President had an incredibly productive set of meetings and discussions with Prime Minister Joe Trudeau of Canada, focusing on our shared commitment to close cooperation in addressing both the challenges facing our two countries and the problems throughout the world," Spicer said.

It's an insulting blunder Malcolm Turnbull is only too familiar with
