I don’t think he volunteered the information about immigration, he was most likely questioned.
Ha ha… You don’t know who Paul Martin is at all do you?
Our former Prime Minister Jean Chr?tien was a brilliant scumbag. A complete crook, but you could never question the fact that he was always 100% in control. Paul Martin on the other hand, as I stated in an earlier thread, is a complete and utter moron. He is the king of both knee-jerk reactions and willingly stirring up more trouble than he can handle. I’m not saying he wasn’t questioned in this instance, I have no idea if he was or not, but if he was, it was just a mater of the media bringing up something he would have gladly mouthed off about if he had thought of it first.
As for the missile defense comments, I am not one bit surprised. This is not tactical stalling at all. Unless the United States is willing to seriously suck up to Canada, plus give us a prominent executive position in this program, I think you can probably count Canada out, even if it wouldn’t cost us a dime to participate.
What I’ve witnessed in Canada over the past decade is a continual swelling of Anti-American sentiment.
When September 11th happened, it turned out that I had no idea just how deep that hatred ran. At the time I worked in an office with about 50 other people. I was the only person visibly upset that day. Everyone else just seemed excited. Throughout the rest of the day people kept on asking me “why are you crying”, “what’s wrong?” Over the next few days people kept saying “they deserved it” When I watched and listing to the national media over the next few weeks, every time there was a call-in opinion show or a discussion panel, I kept on hearing “they deserved it, they deserved it”.
When the Canadian government refused to participate in Iraq, the move was hugely popular with the general population. I think people here viewed it as Canada finally making its big stand. Paul Martin perfectly represents the majority of Canadians in that respect. He doesn’t understand the issues, and he’s doesn’t care. He just wants international attention, and he wants it at your expense. Also, he is delusional. He is not willing to accept his lot in life. Just look at his proposal to replace the UN with a new international body where Canada will play a more prominent role.
Anyway, I?ll stop ranting now.
