Holy crap.

They said U.S. officers will have access to Revenue Canada files, which contain tax information on Canadians, including their work records, property owned and investments.

"They said U.S. officers will have access to Revenue Canada files, which contain tax information on Canadians, including their work records, property owned and investments.

That information may lead to unemployed people being refused entry into the U.S., officers said."

I guess freedom of mobility is only a right that belongs to people "with money." A lazy unemployed bum should never have the right to visit family and do anything but be ashamed of being unemployed.

Well, that settles it. If I was 99.9% sure I wasn't going to go to the United States before, I am now 99.99999999999999% sure I'm not going now.

Well can't say I've been to the U.S. for ten years anyway...so guess I can continue the "boycott".

I did see a story in the Toronto Star that's quite frightening. (Didn't see it on the website).

Apparently the U.S. military is implementing remote control technologies where they'll be able to fire missiles by remote control from a ship.

As part of the Canadian military becoming "inter-operable" with the U.S. military,
U.S. forces would be able to fire missiles from Canadian ships by remote control in a crisis. This is nuts! What other country would give up its sovereignty to this extent.

Paul Martin is shaping up to be a bigger lapdog that Brian Mulroney.

Paul Martin has got to be Canada's best real estate agent. He can sell off a counrty in less than two months.
