The Democratic Republic of Germany insisted, up to the very end, that the Berlin Wall was to keep capitalist invaders out of their humanist socialist paradise.

Well, on the Canadian side of the fence, there are cheap, easily available drugs. On the Murican side, there's no steaming bowls of poutine.

That answer your question, subs?

So, Canada gets a wall

And we paid for it.

That's like 10,000 spoons....
 
2020-08-20 9:21:52 AM  
So Trump built a wall and the US paid for it, on the not-Mexican border, and all it took was his incompetence, negligence, and malfeasance at managing the pandemic.

And he's managed to convince me as a Canadian that this is a good thing. I've switched to some Trump 2016 platform positions, thanks 2020.

Build the wall! Build the wall! Lock him up! Lock him up! "They're sending people who have lots of problems and they're bringing their problems with us. They're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime, they're rapists, and some, I assume, are good people." ...and so on.

I guess it's nice for Canada to not have us coming over the border to infect them.

It's nice for me to not have the left lane of I-77 clogged up with Canadian vehicles.

As a Canadian from Nova Scotia where American tourism is extremely important, we miss our American friends, but we also only have 5 known active cases in this province right now, and would like to keep it that way.  To be fair, we're currently in a bubble with the other three Maritime provinces, and we've also banned the rest of Canada in, unless they self isolate for 14 days.

lolwut

I think we were pretty appalled at how the US was separating kids from their parents, sending ...somewhere... and then losing track of them.  Other than that, the only people talking about "an open border with Mexico" was Republicans trying to say that Dems were saying that.

I saw a car with NS and Canada stickers but a NY licence plate in Halifax the other day.. I sure hope they isolated. I'm kinda OK with Yankees showing up to their summer home to escape the calamity as long as they follow the rules. If you can work remote and don't have kids (or they're also doing remote) then I don't see a problem doing that from your cottage on Long Lake or wherever until things calm down.

Pretty sure we were more upset about the incarceration of people seeking asylum and kids in cages as a policy.

But I'm just guessing.

Americans dont want their slaves to escape.

We do take a number of asylum seekers that come in through the US border. You should look into that before making snarky statements.

It's a cable barrier to prevent vehicles from "accidentally" crossing the border.  It's like a shiatty bicycle lock:  It isn't security, it's intended to keep honest people honest.

Meaning you "take" asylum seekers who present themselves after having already snuck into Canada illegally.  You don't accept asylum seekers who present themselves at the US/Canada border seeking asylum, absent a few rare exceptions.

it's just a little ditch to jump over? shouldn't there at least be a fence?
 
2020-08-20 11:38:31 AM  
I grew up near there. In elementary school the kids would buy firecrackers in the US and fill large black garbage bags. They'd trudge across a farmers field in the middle of the night and chuck the bag over the fence, which at the time would be a normal four foot tall barbed wire fence. Then they'd trudge back to their cars and then go across the border. (always get a little kid to do the illegal stuff) In high school they'd reverse the process to sell weed in the US. Now I can't imagine being able to go get your hat if it blew off near the border.

Mexico gets a wall and all Canada gets is a couple miles of ditch and fence.  We want our own wall and we want you to pay for it.  You want to create jobs in the USA.  Get on it.

That's because of the Safe Third Country agreement, which the Canadian Federal court just threw out as a rights violation, mainly because of how shiatty the US treatment of asylum seekers is. Expect Canada to start taking more asylum seekers soon, and it's about time IMO.
