"We're partnered with our U.S. partners in the counter-narcotic effort on the southern flank, in Central and South America, as the flow goes north," Beare revealed.

1. O, Canada, when are you going to get rid of Bush Jr?

In the meantime, enjoy tilting at windmills in the jungle.

4. LOL ..

"In an exclusive interview with CBC News, Beare said Canada was active in attempts to sever the Central American drug artery pumping narcotics northwards into the United States in Canada."

Good luck with that ... clearly an idiot.

5. Why Canada? Why?

Don't follow us down this rabbit hole. It is costly, destroys the environment, kills thousands of people per year, and arms people who may one day not be our "friend."
