We're not actually that bad, but things have looked better



TORONTO - This country is the laughingstock of the world.

Our mayor admits he’s on crack.

Where once we were known abroad for Niagara Falls, courageous soldiers, inventing insulin and back bacon and cheddar cheese, our most famous Canadian export now is the embarrassing Justin Bieber, who’s facing charges on both sides of the border.

What other Canadian news hit the international headlines recently?

In Isle-Verte, Que., more than 30 seniors, many disabled, died when a horrific inferno swept through their residence. There were no sprinklers in the home.

There are suspicions an elderly resident may have been forbidden from going outside for a smoke because of the cold. He may have returned to his room and lit up there, triggering the tragic fire.

Skinny puppy are Canadians. That's make you cool as fuck. Stop moaning.
If you want me to cut myself you should say:"stop it ! This is disgusting! I can't watch it! I think I'm going to puke!" But if you don't want me to cut myself you should say:"go ahead. Cut yourself"

Yes, it's true. The country has been better in my opinion. But it looks just the same for every nation in the world swept by this wind of wild capitalism where money is god.

You were talking about the fire in l'Île-Verte, Québec and I was shocked to see how the media, thirsty for the scoop, turned it into a reality show. It was not information, but a scoop which sells and brings $$$.

Information is what helps people to take a better decision. Information is what helps a debate to evolve. Information helps the people to have a better knowledge of the world we live in. Etc...

This was... quite different. More like a show. The people of l'Île-Verte, including the mayor, told the media to let them alone. And their answer was, in the name of free press, blah, blah, blah... It wasn't free press. Was more like a capitalistic circus. Same happened in Lac Mégantic this last summer.

Anyway, I think we still have a great country we live in, because of the goodness of the people.

But the way the power of money have turned things out, media, school, entertainment, sports, foods, health, etc... It's twisting up and corrupting everything centered on human being for money making and profits. I believe we could find a balance in this.

Aw, come on... Canada DOES in fact have a few things that dont suck...

Gorden Lightfoot, RUSH, Neil Young, The Guess Who, Bachman–Turner Overdrive, (the early part of) Bryan Adams, Dudley Do-Right, The cast of SCTV, William Shatner, Dan Aykroyd and Mike Meyers just to name a few.

The "funniest" part was back in 1995 when Quebec wanted to secede from Canada.. btw.. how did that go guys.? :lol:

Your crack smoking mayor isn't exclusive to Canada, or even original.
