Following WWII, five thousand real, actual, Jew-killing Nazis escaped to Canada. The Canadian government never prosecuted or deported any of them. Is it reasonable to assume that Canadians, in general, bear anti-Semitic sympathies?

After WW2 the US gave asylum to over 1600 Nazi scientists to be able to have access to their work.

Once a peace treaty is signed, unless one is actually charged with a crime, the war is over for them ... but you (who probably was not alive at the time) want to continue to fight the war at the personal level? Are you going to charge every soldier, medic, cook, etc because they had two choices: the German Army or death? Who are you, or me, or anybody else, to judge the descendants?
I am having a flap — over the constant finger pointing.

You're making a lot of incorrect assumptions about me.

Perhaps. But this type of soft bomb has been lobbed a lot at SOH just to get some petty partisanship rant going.
So, I don’t think I have any misconceptions.

Your comment implied that I want to continue the war on a personal level.

I could not care less about prosecuting wrinkly old men that are already at death's door anyway.

This question is about Canada and Canadians.

If it wasn’t for the US bringing in Nazis at the end of WWII, we wouldn’t have NASA or Planned Parenthood.

Yes. At least in Quebec (almost its own country)

No. That’s an unreasonable assumption.
