    Canada gets off on being able to deny US citizens entry IMO, but I have heard that those who have a past can still get in--it just takes a little legwork.

    But we do live in a free country,and it is allowable to burn books (but like Canada,I don't have to allow those type of people who'd burn books entry into my residence) and flags.
    So what type of books do you think is acceptable to burn?

    Places like Montreal still do well of course but with so much of the provincial budget being eaten up by Health care it's very difficult for Quebec to give up the Equalization payments.
    Montreal has seen its time passed and largely because of the restrictive and discriminatory language laws. The old joke is that it should have been Bloor Street that was named Rene Levesque Blvd.
    I mean what province would give it up?
    They can't anymore than people can, once they get used to having things given to them no matter how they manage themselves.

    I'm hoping Eastern Canada can discover more oil and gas, love for the Maritimes to take off economically, such a great part of the country thats people deserve a good streak.
    The spirit of Newfoundland has been largely sucked dry by the handouts given them over the years. All they have to do is cross the US border to see the difference in lifestyle, or visit Iceland.. I like the people there very much, despite just spending two weeks there, but they lack the confidence of people living in the west, that seemed clear.

    Definitely. Things could be far worse. I'm quite happy with our Canadian neighbors. They can deny entry to our ****heads all they like. I'll just sit here and quietly snicker whenever they do.

    I don't propose burning books as much as I support someone's right to do so.

    Denying entry works both ways. Canadians can be turned away from the US border as well, and many have been.

    I am not arguing for denying people the right to burn books,
    I supports someones right also,I jst wouldn't associate with one.

    when I asked you if you would associate with book burners.Which implies that while you yourself might not burn books,you have no problem associating with someone who burns certain books
    I was just curious as to what books?

    What do you mean the same criteria?

    I would like to know why? We probably would have just traded with Britain instead of you.
