Trump has learned THE great lesson from the Revolutonary War. When in doubt, when things look dicey, Invade Canada! We've tried it @ least once, that I recall. Maybe this time the fates will smile upon us ...
i guess trump believes the reason we did not win Canada is because we did not man the skies, control the airports and ram their ramparts like we did the Brits in 1776.

Sorry, I meant to include this.

Lots more in google.
“Canada is strongly opposed to this US proposal and we’ve made that very clear to our US counterparts,” she said. Ms Freeland confirmed that Canadian officials learned of the proposal a few days ago.

In his press conference, Mr Trudeau said “Canada and the US have the longest unmilitarised border in the world, and it is very much in both of our interests for it to remain that way.”


What I don't get is why they're so upset. I believe it is true that Canadians won't leave Canada to come to the U.S. for superior medical care as they so often did before the COVID crises. So what's the problem?

I would rather Canada invaded us and won. Then we would at least look like a civilized first world country again. ;)

Concern that it would inhibit trade.

What's Trump's plan - make them stand six feet apart and watch out for cheese and gin being snuck acroos the border by Covid-19 terrorists?
