I'm in Canada again, and I've been here for long enough to make this observation. The reason most Canadians are "okay" with their form of government is because 98% of their media reports American news. Would you agree with that statement?

Canada went through a massive restructuring in the 90s. Their economy was was worse than ours at our lowest point. They cut regulation and government spending tremendously and pulled themselves out. Most probably remember those darker days.

For the record, I'm in Saulte Ste. Marie, ON, quite a distance from the Parliament building in Ottawa.

Is your hypothesis that Canadians are too distracted to notice or is it that they see how fükked up things are here and they want no part of it?

No idea... But being produced by and playing content of are two completely different things.

I know exactly what Liberty is talking about and I concur. It's hard to describe, but they're really passive... It's kind of like they're ignorant to the fact their government is out of control, but if they knew, they wouldn't mind anyway....

I thought Canada had laws that a certain percentage of broadcasts had to be produced by Canadians?

It's difficult to describe, but it always just feels like talking to a small child.

Arrogant or not, it doesn't make it any less true. I've been to St. John's, NL, Edmonton, AB, Sault Ste Marie, ON, and Toronto. Their radio and TV dedicate the vast majority of their content to American news.

That, and they're very passive and childlike in their demeanor.
