If we continue to cave in, the Americans will continue to trample over us whenever they have an important interest to protect. In the softwood lumber dispute, we do have alternatives. Despite the ongoing efforts of our continentalist elites, we still have the capacity to assert ourselves and flourish as an independent nation.

That's weird. It works for me. It only says "Loading" for a few seconds, and then the article comes up.
Is it possible that you're not waiting long enough?

You betcha. I think Canadians underestimate themselves and their abilities. I think the US takes advantage of that and does what it can to keep Canada dependent on it. Time for all that to change. Of course with the recent US schpiel of passports needed when coming in from Canada and Mexico... I can't help but think that the US is separating itself more and more from the rest of the world.
