Why and how to defend Canada from U.S. Empire
Canadians need to pay closer attention to the antics of our super power neighbour south of the border. If we take a closer look at Canada /U.S. relations and see the bigger picture emerging from the details, especially in light of recent events, it is tempting to deny what comes to mind and look away. However the facts herein are all verified, and merit serious questions at least (if you don’t believe or understand some of what you read here, please look it up). To those who have been watching the rise of the corporate elite and the inner workings of U.S. administrations the picture will not be as surprising. But few have looked at the range of implications for Canada, so the intention of this article is to examine recent events, raise some questions, and propose some options for protecting Canada’s unique identity. It’s one thing to be a good neighbour to a much bigger country, it is quite another to be the main supplier and among the last friends of a nation whose leaders are alienating most of the world.
