    Canada Now Has 35 Million People, Highest Growth in G8

    Canada is now home to 35 million people and has the fastest growth out of any G8 country even though we have one of the lowest fertility rates at about 1.5. Immigration is amazing is it not? This is how we fight an aging society by being accepting of immigrants but I guess it also helps we have a functioning economy and much lower rates of illegal immigration.

    Sweet! Could you please educate us Yankee Doodles about the pros and cons of your healthcare system? There is so much hysterics about rationing and stuff on this side of the border that it would be great to hear straight from the horse's maple syrup drenched mouth.

    I don't want this to be a healthcare debate.

    Good, let the little wanna be tolerant fools get a dose...

    The Canadians would never tolerate what's happening in Chicago, and talk of banning guns would be treated as humor like it once was in the US.....

    We would probably declare martial law on the city or let organized crime do the work. Handguns are heavily restricted (pepper spray, mace, etc. is illegal) and concealed carry is technically illegal in Canada and it applies to the whole country and have been since the 60s.

    God forbid open carry......

    Here in Chicago if you have a gun the cops will put a gun to your head (usually) and treat you like a terrorist - then ask questions - then lock you up for 10-20 hours and let you go while they confiscate your LEGAL fire arm... Then attempt to act like they're letting you go off "easy."

    Oh, and you will be lucky if you're not beat up in the process....

    Progressives enjoy that tho.., They're the ones who employ it and endorse these measures....

    Progressives call that logic and 'reasonable.' I call it an infringement on civil liberties.

    This is getting out-of-hand. Already I can hear my neighbour when he uses his chainsaw and before he killed his roosters in the spring the racket was unendurable.

    Pro- Cheap drugs, free surgery and doctor visits
    Con- Dental not included, wait list for some specialists, took me almost 8 hours to get 10 stitches in an ER.

    I caught blade to the head at 10pm got 35 stitches to (25 inside to repari my problem and 10 ouside) my face, severed a nerve in my face and was out by 1AM...

    I could see my skull before the stitches .... It took nothing more than a shot and 45 minutes (if that)...

    I got split to my skull above my left eye and this doctor fixed me..... Today you can hardly see a scar.

    On workmans comp I walk into the hospital with strepth throat and I'm out in 45 minutes with antibiotics....

    I don't want to live in a world where some gangster gets shot up and I have to wait to be treated because.
