no no....criticize away....you just make it very clear that you lack perspective, just as I lack perspective on Canadian politics, although certain themes run throughout politics everywhere....and that, I think we can agree on. Politicians are not there to help you....especially those who make it into the limelight. It's their job to make you believe they are working for you when in reality they are just a drone looking out for party and personal interests. If the whole world accepted this principal, things might be a little bit better. The American and Canadian governments basically hold hands and whisper sweet nothings into each others ears so what's your solution?

oh.....wait. We're on planet earth or some shit.
Health care is not free in Canada.
The Tax Payers of Canada pay for it!
The Government of Canada is funded by the Tax Payers of Canada. The Police Departments are funded by the Tax Payers and so on. Simple but not free.
Nothing is free.
You might want to take a second look and remember that some members on this forum are Canadian and Canadian born. Thank you and have nice day.
