US Considering Sending Troops to Canada-US Border (hopefully to keep their citizens at home)

So, the US is considering send troops to the Canadian US ┬áto intercept illegal migrants as part of that US’ response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Wait, are you kidding me? They think Canadians want to escape our relatively under control COVID-19 situation, with universal healthcare, to go to their pandemic that’s probably out of control already, about to surpass China’s global total and become the #1 country for cases? And that’s only what they’ve tested for. Seriously? Is that how deranged that administration down south is???

They might consider putting troops there to keep their citizens at home, from fleeing to a less infected country with better healthcare system. In the same way draft dodgers came up here during the Viet Nam War to escape their policies at the time, there are probably a lot of people thinking of running to a safer haven in Canada to escape COVID-19! If anything, though I’m suggesting Canada do this, we should be putting troops on our borders to keep out potentially infected Americans from coming up!

As for that wall down south in Mexico, the Mexicans have declared Americans unwanted now and are probably grateful some of that wall got built. They may even be regretful a better one Trump proposed didn’t actually get done. Be careful what you wish for, I guess.

How Much Would You Pay for Online News from Halifax’s Chronicle-Herald? Poll

Halifax and Nova Scotia’s main newspaper, the Chronicle-Herald, is considering setting up a paywall for access to its online stories. Funny that it was the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) that reported this, not the Herald itself! (Oct 17 2012)

A paywall is a system where surfers would get some stories free, but would have to pay a monthly subscription for most of the other stories. Or you’d get snippets of some or all stories, but would have to pay for the rest of the content. Either way, you’d be having to pay for most of the content. What I want to know in a survey is Continue reading
