Let me start by saying I've not been here long, or posted here much, but I have read quite a few topics.
I am a Canadian, and this is the first time in my life I have ever been embarassed to say so. /ccboard/images/graemlins/blush.gif
Our Canadian government has to be one of the most undecided and cowardly governments I have ever seen. Our idiot of a prime minister (Jean Chretien A.K.A. chicken livered jacka$$) should resign after refusing to support the USA in it's military action against Iraq.
I live about 20 minutes away from one of the biggest military bases in Canada, and I know a lot of soldiers. The census among them is "Let us go and fight!!".
The morale on the base has dropped dramatically according to the guys I've talked to, and they are amazed that our political leader would allow Canada and the US to have and bad blood between them.
I don't know how most Americans feel about this, however I wouldn't blame them for being extremely pi$$ed off.
On another front, I wouldn't blame the US for not wanting the Canadian military involved. We have helicopters that fall out of the sky, submarines that leak when submerged, and firepower that is clearly behind the times due to stupid military cutbacks, and poor government spending.
Now, without Canadian support in this war, what happens if Canada ever needs the suppor of it's big "brother" the US?? It would serve the Canadian government right for the US to say "What?? Sorry, I can't hear you"
Now, I could go on and on about how poorly run Canada is, but I won't.
I just want to say that I feel that Bush is a fantastic leader, and if he and his own believe in what they are doing, I say God bless, and go get them!!! /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

I'm totaly pi$$ed about it too. We've got maybe a thousand men, 4 Destroyers, and some Sea Kings over there in the Gulf. Let me see, after the exchange rate that's about. 10 guys, 3 Canoes, and 2 flying scwirrels. St

Nope the money for weapons was spent on socialized healthcare. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

The canadians that went were going to take a moose, but they opted for the squirrel because the moose wouldn't fit in the rowboat! /ccboard/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Hey c.Holtz. I see by your address you live in Pembroke Ont. I was born and raised in Deep River just up the highway. Cool, someone else from the Valley here. Maybe we can get together for some games on my anuall pilgrimage back home this summer. Where do you shoot in Pembroke? I usually play at Buddy's in Petawawa when I'm around. St

If you don't like the way the country is being run..........

Then get the hell out.

Oh and that jackass prime minister of ours Jean Chretien, guess who elected him? You guys (I'm not referring to you I'm referring to Ontario and Quebec). These two provinces make up roughly 70% of Canadas population and are by far the majority.

I too live close to a military base (not as close as you), one of the largest bases in Canada, the census here is to go and fight as well. In all fairness, most of our troops (around here at least) are currently fighting the war against terrorism in Afghanistan, so even if we did assist the U.S. it would be a very limited number of troops we could send there anyways.

And our military's current condition.... kinda pathetic isn't it?

Hey Stretch, that's where I play. I travel to Pet. to play at least 4 times a week. the next time you're on your way to deep, e-mail me and we can go shoot some. The hall is dumpy, the tables arren't very good, but it's all we got here.(other than the bar boxes)

Listen Snipershot, I'm saying that we need new leadership here in Canada. Our tax money (which is waaaaay too much) is squandered by the hundreds of millions (eg. the new gun registration B.S.)When I said I'm embarrassed, I should have added that it's because of Chretien. He has embarrassed the people of Canada waaay too long. I know I didn't vote for him, but what is to say the next P.M. is going to be any better? If everyone is right, it'll end up being Paul Martin. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

Don't worry, Chretien makes all Canadians feel a little embarassed. Being a hunter the gun thing is a big load of crap, it was supposed to cost $2 million originally, and it's up to somethinglike $30 million now-that's not how I want my tax dollars spent and I'm sure you would agree as well.

New leadership would most definitely be a welcome change for all Canadians, Our tax dollars might be a little high but they certainly coud be spent better/more efficiently. I don't mind forking some dough over for our world class healthcare system but things like the gun control are a good way to piss us off.

I don't know what your health care system is like where you are, but ours here is the $hitz.
I agree our tax dollars could be spent WAAAAAY more efficiently. I just hope our next leader is better. I can't see how they could be any worse!!
As for the gun control, I've seen several bumper stickers here about it. My personal favourite is :

" Sure you can have my gun......BULLETS FIRST!! "
The amount actually spent on gun control here is actually over $1 billion. Squandered money!!
