Left out! Canada is no longer a serious country.

This article in Politico really matters. It says that “President Joe Biden will announce a new working group with Britain and Australia to share advanced technologies in a thinly veiled bid to counter China, a White House official and a congressional staffer told POLITICO … [and] … The trio, which will be known by the acronym AUUKUS, will make it easier for the three countries to share information and know-how in key technological areas like artificial intelligence, cyber, underwater systems and long-range strike capabilities.

It is now abundantly clear that the USA, inter alia, puts Justin Trudeau’s Canada in the same league as (anti-nuclear) New Zealand. Canada is no longer one fo the most trusted allies … Australia is; Britain is: India is; Japan is … Canada is NOT.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has, in six short years, moved Canada from one of America’s best friends to, de facto, a Chinese puppet state. He has done this with his own (and his many advisors’) eyes wide open. Canada, Justin Trudeau’s Canada is no longer a serious nation … perhaps we don’t really deserve to be. After all, we (almost 40% of the almost 70% who bothered to vote at all) elected him … then we did it again. Maybe the world is just concluding that we are not serious people who can be relied upon when the going gets tough.

Anyone who votes, in the forthcoming g election, for any Liberals Party candidate will be:

  1. Voting for a party led by a fool; and
  2. Voting to have Canada exiled to the “kids’ table” of International relations; and
  3. Voting to devalue Canada.

  1. I believe that before China might be successfully compelled to do anything it doesn’t wish to, the compelling source must at least possess a consumer base thus trade import/export bargaining chip compatible with that of China, with its nearly 1.5 billion consumers. Military threats from abroad likely wouldn’t intimidate Chinese officials; if anything, foreign sabre rattling would just make China more obstinate. The only other thing that might have an effect on them is the economic via the international market place. Unfortunately we, Canada, miserably fail as either a military or consumer-base challenge to China, regardless of which party governs us.

    Perhaps some securely allied nations combining their resources could go without the usual China trade/investment tether they’d prefer to sever, instead trading necessary goods and services between themselves and other interested non-allied, non-China-bound nation economies? Maybe such an alliance has already been covertly discussed but rejected due to Chinese government strategists knowing how to ‘divide and conquer’ potential alliance nations by using door-wedge economic/political leverage custom-made for each nation? Or could it be that every country typically placing its own economic and big business bottom-line interests foremost may always be its, and therefore collectively our, Achilles’ Heel to be exploited by huge-market nations like China? As much as I hate the fact, so far China seems to know how to handle the West.

    In regards to economic and corporation control, the Chinese government holds much sway over the big businesses within their borders (and even without, to some degree). In contrast, Western governances, like those of Canada and the U.S., are essentially steered by corporate interests, sometimes through economic intimidation. Accordingly, major political decisions will normally foremost reflect what is in big business’s best interests (but don’t expect to hear this fact readily reported by the corporate mainstream news-media). Anyone who doubts the potent persuasion of huge business interests here need to consider how high-level elected officials can become crippled by implicit/explicit threats to transfer or eliminate jobs and capital investment, thus economic stability, if corporate ‘requests’ aren’t met. (Does Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s SNC-Lavalin affair/corruption come to mind?)

      1. P.S. – is Canada willing to pay the price to play, as it appears in this case, and buy nuclear subs, like the Aussies have just committed to? I’m OK with any such idea, but let’s see if any future government is willing.
