Take Note If You Are A Canadian
The Bush Admin is pushing the button of insanity again, OKAY, you knew that what else id new...

There is now a push to have Canadians entering the US to provide a passport. Now this may not sound harsh, but hey, it ain't like Canada is the enemy...

And also while we're Canadian bashing, not me, Bush. Here's another piece of propaganda that the Bush admin is probably behind.

The Canadian Nation Railroad, known as CN and or CNR. It's now owned by a US corporation, at least the majority of the company. An office memo leaked to the public reveals even more Canadian hate...

It instructs all employees NOT to refer to the word Canada/Canadian when talking about the company, it says use the phrase "CN", but under no cirumstance use the word Canadian....

What the heck are we turning into under Bush, will someone please tell me. Christ, we're under a NAZI for F sake! I'm a bit pissed..

2. So ...
when I go to enter Canada, I'm expected to show a passport. Canada IS a another country, isn't it?

7. That's odd.
I've been to Canada three times. I never showed a passport, and was waved through within less than a minute. (This was through the Detroit-Windsor checkpoint.)

Admittedly those were over ten years ago, but I didn't even HAVE a passport that was current any of those times.

If I may ask, are you an American citizen?

10. Born and raised thank you ....
I've gone on business trips and pleasure trips. Planes, cars and tour buses. They ask. Just it's just luck of the draw.

3. one more way

I think Canadians should boycott the US until we get a fair
election again.

6. I agree.
since when do Canadians need a passport to come here
and how many people on a whole own a passport? This
bs xenophobia has to stop.

8. But of course...
it's the DRUGS.

Not illegal drugs - perscription drugs. Such measures will make it(moderately) more difficult for those who are planning to get those cheaper drugs into the American economy.

Anything to keep up the profits of his contributor companies!

9. I can understand
wanting to make us pay more for prescription drugs. What happens, the rich don't care they can afford it, and they vote Freeper.

The poor cannot afford the high prices and die, they would have voted for the Dems.

On another note, last week a Canadian Gay Married couple were refused entry into the US because the listed their status as "FAMILY". They were refused entry unless the changed their status to single persons, not a family...

11. I go to Canada all the time
never had to show a passport. It will certainly do a number on travel to Canada...it's big bucks to get a passport, so the average American family that regularly travels to Canada for skiing and vacations might think twice before taking a long weekend if they have to shell out the bucks for passports for everyone.
It sucks. Just another way this Shrub administration will piss off a country that is "not us."
These bas-tids have got to go in 04!
:grr:
