Discussion in 'Canada' started by NATO AIR, Sep 29, 2004.
good look at what a growing number of intellectuals in canada say is its decline.
Alaska and Chicago are booming and suffer the same degree of suffering.
No, there is only one solution to Canadian malaise. Lobby for statehood. I expect we'd take each province in as equal states, barring of course Quebec which would refuse to try for statehood... and become akin to a Mexico in the north while the rest of former Canada became rich very quickly.
:rotflmao: the french would send an intervention force to prevent Quebec from falling apart.
But they would bicker over linguistic issues, only proving them to be ineffective.
More likely, the French would clandestinely offer weapons and technology to Quebec so Quebec could become a world power. All at a nominal fee of course.
yep, and the plight of the Quebec people would replace the Palestinians thanks to French whining and pleading for sanctions against those awful "Anglos"
Tsk, tsk you mean "Square Heads".
i stand corrected. i wonder how the french would spin the quebec crisis into the headlines and the UNSC over the true genocides and crises in darfur, iraq, zimbabwe, burma, etc etc
All those guys in that article seem pretty depressed. It makes us all seem tired and worn out, ya for only one side of view!
Some points i beleive are correct, even if just semi-correct. Canada has become bland over the 80's and 90's.
A big reason, i think, perspective. Before the 80's Canada was very much out there, cutting itself an existense in the international community. But latley it seems that our only bar to measure ourselfs with has been the one south. A lot of younger people souly compare Canada to the US, which is like comparing apples and oranges. But when Canada is unable to turn into an orange, they get upset. In the past Canada did work hard and well with America, but did not compare cultures so closely.
There is a brain drain, and a lack of leadership. But its not bad, not nearly as it seems in this article.
What is funny, is how people will fight to keep themselves from being confused as Americans. Yet because of two + decades of American culture blasting into us, we can only compare ourselves to them, and when we aren't the same we think something is wrong. It's all the way you loom at things.
