Bernie Should Count Her Blessings

Malcolm G Ratcliffe • March 2003


I see the Yanks punted my long lost cousin back to the 'sod'. Sure she should count her blessings. Many of my fellow foreign born Canadians citizens, while enroute to Canada via the US, have disappeared. And that's without The Patriot Act 2.

The "American dream" is now a "nightmare". Not to worry, Canada, the second greatest country on the planet (#1? Ireland, of course) still has a candle in the window for the oppressed of the world, regardless of race, colour, or creed.

The Canadian government issued a travel warning to all Canadian citizens passing through or to the US, Ireland should do likewise. Besides, who in their right mind wants to go there?

There is an actual flood of US citizens seeking entry to Canada, I guess they can feel the Draft.
