Canadians Being Had Bigtime
Putting One and One together ...
One and one = 2, the number of duplicity.
From Artha: Dupllcity=Double Dealing; deception by pretending to entertain one set of intentions while acting under the influence of another.
As I reported earlier (April 27, 2019): the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP) -- despite the hot air blown by the Lefty protesters (of which I was a part at the time) -- has reportedly risen again from its fictional shallow grave (and maybe Khashoggi will do that someday too, speaking of HotAir).
This is just one of the shady things the Liberal government, under Paul Martin, involved us in while hoping the majority of Canadians weren't paying attention -- and they weren't: just try asking the average person if they know what the acronym SPP stands for -- and which the current Liberal government has now brought unabashedly back out into the open.
The US, Mexico and Canada have met to conspire almost every year since 2005, regardless of who was the elected head of state, yet the Left only got its protests into gear during the Harper years (but not when Obama was heading up the meetings -- only after Bush came on the scene).
See below* where I talk about the protest against the Bush/Harper/Calderone meeting of the "Three Amigos" held at at Montebello, Quebec in 2007.
Now, it's the other way around: the US has a Rightist president, but Canada has the Liberals back in charge. What to do, what to do. Nothing, I suspect.
It was the fear campaign about food (see bottom of my post of May 15) that caused to me to recall this:
MROnline (April 27, 2019): They’re at it again: selling the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement
Appropriate to whom? Did you vote for that? I thought not.
And just over two weeks later comes this (discussed by Yours Truly on May 15):
GlobalNews (May 15, 2019): How climate change could make your food less safe to eat
Jeepers! What can't they blame on "climate change" from here on in?
That was a blatant scare tactic, or else a concocted prequel to the possible outcome of the relaxed SPP conditions, propagated by no less than the current Government of Canada -- with fancy charts and all!
I have sickening feeling there's more to come; the Liberal government desperately wants to win the upcoming election because it has big plans! Big money-making plans.
Guess when I stopped eating lettuce. Okay, I'll tell you. Remember when it was admitted that lettuce imported from the US was contaminated by rocket fuel? (It also showed up in a blood pressure drug but apparently that was speedily blamed on China.)
I promptly lost my taste for any form of lettuce, which is irrational, I suppose, because summer Canadian lettuce is probably okay. But I've developed a keener taste for broccoli and brussels sprouts, so who needs lettuce anyway?
(I've also lost my taste for Pacific Salmon.)
The technical term for the offending element in rocket fuel is "perchlorate" and Americans were (are still?) drinking it in their water!
From the EPA:
That was 2011, and the EPA was still reviewing scientific theory on the subject in 2017.
But get this (2005):
LiveScience: Rocket Fuel Chemical Found in Breast Milk of Women in 18 States
Not only that, but if you search for a report on birth defects in the US, and find a recent one, I'd like to know about it. The only CDC report I could find is dated prior to the disclosure of rocket fuel in lettuce and drinking water! And there's a tiny note at the bottom that says:
Note: The study covered about 39% of U.S. live births during the study period from 1999-2007.
There was also massive reporting on E.coli pollution of lettuce. (Just Google "lettuce E-coli")
"Security and Prosperity", eh? Hmmmm ...the security part probably has more to do with American military might than with food safety. And we can guess who benefits from "prosperity".
The protest at Montebello, Quebec, when Bush and Harper were playing together, attracted at least 1,000 Canadians -- including Moi. See my photos below * to learn how the Government of Canada protested right back at us.
To those who believe we live in a free country: as long as you stay in your assigned cage you can be as free as you like.
By the way, in case you didn't believe me when I said that I can recall a summer of 99F in the shade -- (around 1950) - years before Pierre Trudeau forced metric on us - (1983): check out this Wiki table for an historic list of extreme temperatures in the provinces.
Trudeau called dissenting Canadians "dinosaurs" on a radio program titled "Metric Morning" -- but more accurately should have been called "Metric Mourning" -- so what pejorative would he now apply to the US which, after all this time, still speaks Fahrenheit?
So far, the worst pejorative "climate change" proponents have come up with for the unconvinced is "deniers". Ouch, eh?
* Images from Montebello protest against SPP, 2007, when Bush, Harper and Calderon met to hash out agreements. As you'll see, there were plain-clothed spies on the bus on which we travelled, darth vaders desecrating the nearby cemetary, cops who videoed us, and people in the front lines who got seriously pepper-sprayed -- not to mention that the cops were trained in a weirdly robotic side-step as they changed lines.
