Watch your back, Canada

So, the "3 Amigos" summit was held in Canada and the three 'leaders' from Mexico, Canada, and the USA were on stage making speeches and taking questions.

It was interesting to note that when a reporter asked the Mexican president how he would feel waking up to a Trump president and finding his country now had a wall across it, after that president referred to Trump as 'Hitler', BO jumped in immediately stating that he was going to offer a 'helping hand' to him and preceded to pretty much frame an answer for him. Since BO took that spot and spoke for a few minutes, the Canadian PM then spoke for another few minutes so that by the time they got back to the actual person the question was directed at, he had had plenty of time to come up with something that sounded 'presidential' but amounted to a bunch of liberal babble that never actually answered it.

Even more interesting though was the fact that the Canadian PM talked about how Mexico and Canada has finally ended their discourse and animosity that's been going on for a while because Mexico wouldn't allow imported beef from Canada coming into his country because of fears of 'mad cow' disease. So how did the issues finally get resolved? One suspicion I have is that BO again 'came to the rescue' via political pressure. The PM agreed to eliminate the requirement for Mexican citizens to enter his country without a visa now so Canada could have more of them as 'tourists' . Considering Mexico's economy, how many citizens do you believe have the money to be 'tourists' ANYWHERE in the world?

So now Canada has an 'open border' policy for Mexico.....get ready for the flood of new Canadian residents who will one day soon be eligible for your quasi-socialist government that has lots of goodies to give and be applied for by people who will never go back home until they have bled your country dry of jobs that, like the USA, will hurt your economy much more than it will help it.

Mexico has very strict entry laws that are enforced heavily....they have a sealed border with Central America, they require visas/passports/birth certificates proving where you were born to enter. I never heard one word from Mexico's president that they will waive visas for Canadians to come in as tourists, so I guess 'immigration' is only a one way street, much like it is with the USA.

Let me know in a few years how well this 'deal' is working for you, Canada.......

....who probably won't appreciate the competition for govt attention and jobs.

"New data from the National Household Survey (NHS) show that 1,400,685 people had an Aboriginal identity in 2011, representing 4.3% of the total Canadian population. Aboriginal people accounted for 3.8% of the population enumerated in the 2006 Census, 3.3% in the 2001 Census and 2.8% in the 1996 Census.Dec 23, 2015"

Now if that was Justin Bieber on the other side of the fence, I think they'd get more bricks.

Watch your back, Canada

I questioned (2 questions)

From some nefarious plot from Mexico OR America OR both?

From Mexico with "visitors" and/or America with "softwood lumber"?

You told Canada to "watch it's back" I asked WHAT should Canada watch for...and from which country.

You then proceeded to violate Doctor/patient confidentiality and talked about YOUR diagnosis of ALS.

Isn't one of the symptoms of ALS "forgetfulness"?

I'll try and refer to you in the future as DR Toni H in the future...IF I happen to forget to put DR in front of your stage name...Please feel free to remind me that my ALS has kicked in again.
