Saturday Morning Confusion: Which is the better place to live: Canada or the USA?

 By Michael Lewis

My girlfriend and I compare living in the U.S. Vs Canada all the time. She lives in the U.S. And I am Canadian. I could write a book on reasons I believe life in Canada is better than in the States, but to be fair, I will quote only those that she has stated. (* we have been together for over a decade)

  • Healthcare: she works in a cancer centre in a hospital so her opinion is very much based on her experience. Single-payer healthcare, as most of the world knows, is much better and fairer than multi-payer systems. She sees too many people who wait until they are stage 4 because they just can't afford treatment, so they leave it until it's too late. Not only that but Canadian healthcare costs 50% less than the US (cost as a % of GDP)
  • Because the Canadian gov’t pays our health insurance, they have a vested interest in keeping us HEALTHY. That's why products that are unhealthy (cigs, liquor, gas, fast food) are taxed more heavily while healthy things (sports, fresh food, etc) are subsidized or have tax deductions.
  • Because of this, 24% of Canadians are obese, compared to 36% of Americans.
  • Canadians live an average of 3 years longer than Americans
  • We have a lower infant mortality rate
  • Another by-product of free healthcare is that it makes it more advantageous for companies to open businesses in Canada; no business needs to include healthcare in their benefits packages.
  • Health care aside:
  • Canada’s populations average net worth is $363,000 higher than Americans
  • New working parents get 50 paid weeks of parental leave vs 12 unpaid weeks in the U.S.
  • It is illegal for Natural Gas and Hydro (electric) utility companies to cut-off services for late payment during the winter months.
  • The US kills and incarcerates more of its own citizens than any other country in the world. In 2016 Canada had incarcerated 114 per 100,000 people (and killed 0); the U.S. Incarcerated 724 per 100,000 and killed 43 prisoners.
  • Canada’s murder rate is 1.73 per 100,000 people compared to 4.7 in the U.S.
  • We have 5 major federal parties that win seats in the House of Commons. The U.S. Has virtually only 2. This means Canadians have more representation in government.
  • Donations to political candidates are capped and $1,550 and can only be made by citizens. No corporate donations, no PACS or SuperPacs
  • The number of wealthy politicians is far lower than in the US. Most Canadian politicians are lawyers, doctors, teachers, journalists, farmers, tradesmen, etc. Nearly 0 millionaires.

This is my shortlist but we believe these are some of the most important.

GO TO NEW BLOG!

 Dear Friends:

As of today Allan's Perspective is no more!

I have decided to go in a slightly different direction  as far as content is concerned and I hope this change meets with your approval.

THE NEW SITE CAN BE ACCESSED HERE:

https://allans-canadian-perspective.blogspot.com/

Saturday, 22 August 2020

Come Labour Day this blog will be no more!

 Dear Friends:

Sometime over Labour Day weekend, this blog will be no more! 

Oh,  now don't get your underwear all in a knot about it kids because I am just going to start a new blog on my own site, instead of on Blogger, with my own stuff because I  want to go in a new direction!

The blog will be called "Allan's Canadian Perspective" and certain observations and understandings have been percolating in the back of my brain for my years now (I could even say decades!) that I would like to address in a new way... on a new site... with a new frame of mind... and a new perception of the human condition!

Basically, boys and girls, I want to get away from observations about events like 'politics, religion, and the social sciences' and concentrate more on WHY we do the things we do!

Sure! It's easy to just explain what someone did about a situation... but I have been more inclined, as of late, to look into the motivation that acts as a catalyst to channel our impulse to do something rather than the physical act itself!

I hope I'm making myself clear about this...  I don't want to talk about what people do anymore... but rather WHY they do what they did... when they did what they do..., when they were trying to: 'Express themselves!'

The way I see it anyway!

They just started to build a wall between Canada and the United States folks!

 A fence that appeared earlier this week just south of 0 Avenue in Abbotsford and Langley is both a road-safety measure and an effort to deal with “bi-national safety concerns,” American officials say.

In an email, a spokesperson for the United States Border Patrol said the fencing was built to keep vehicles from crashing across the border either accidentally or intentionally.

“This safety cable barrier not only protects people in the United States and Canada, but it also aids in securing this portion of the border by deterring illegal vehicle entries in both directions,” Tony Holladay, acting chief patrol agent, said in a statement.

“Locally in our community, trans-national criminal organizations have capitalized on this vulnerable area by smuggling both narcotics and people. The enhancement to this specific border area mitigates the threat posed by these dangerous criminal enterprises.”

The fence is just a metre or so tall and runs nearly 3.8-kilometres in the ditch marking the border between the two countries and separating 0 Avenue in B.C. from East Boundary Road in an unincorporated agricultural area of Washington state’s Whatcom County.

Normally structures aren’t allowed to be built within 10 feet of the border on either side. But J.T. Moore, the deputy commissioner for the U.S. section of the International Boundary Commission (IBC), which maintains the 20-foot wide border “vista” from coast to coast , said construction of the fence was approved in August 2019.

“It’s a retention cable wire that was approved by the commission,” he explained by phone Wednesday from Washington, D.C. “It was co-ordinated with towns and communities along the border to limit traffic incidents along 0 Avenue. It was approved by both U.S. and Canadian commissioners.”

Nonetheless, the fence’s construction came as a surprise to local officials from both sides of the border. A spokesperson from the city of Abbotsford said the city’s engineering department had not heard of the project and Steve Banham, public works director for the city of Lynden, which is just a few kilometres south of where the fence has been built, said he’d not heard about it either.

East Boundary runs between Bender and Northwood roads, and doesn’t get much traffic, Blaine, Washington-based immigration lawyer Len Saunders said but is often visited by families with relatives living in each country who can’t cross the border to meet.

“Lots of families and couples have been meeting there,” Saunders said. “There’s a very little area that you could actually drive across.”

Saunders pointed out this is where a British family drove across the border in the U.S. last October, something the family claimed was an accident. They were eventually deported but not before spending time in detention facilities operated by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, a tale they later related to the British media.

Moore said he couldn’t comment on that incident but did confirm that the new fence is the only section that had been applied for in the area.

Because of the haphazard way the border was drawn in a series of treaties in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, there are a number of buildings that literally sit on the border, especially in Quebec and New England.

In all, there have been 20 treaties over the past two-plus centuries between Canada, the U.S., Britain and Russia that have combined to define the border between the two North American neighbours.

The current boundary commission has a commissioner from Canada and one from the U.S. It was established after the Treaty of 1908, which called for a clear demarcation and maintenance of the border from coast-to-coast, including keeping the so-called vista clear of unapproved structures or barriers.

The border stretches for nearly 9,000 km between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans and is marked on land mostly by simple cairns or monuments, though in recent years the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol has added a variety of electronic monitoring devices.


Conspiracy Theories Just Get Weirder!

Dear Friends:

We did an article a few days ago about how Americans seem to be the most 'conspiracy theory' nuts on the planet... and they will believe just about anything!

The one conspiracy we didn't mention was 'QAnon' since I wanted to talk about this one all by itself... without the distraction of all the other nonsense!

The reason for this is because Donald Trump will not speak ill of them because they happen to like him! (That's the only thing necessary to get in Drumpf's good books kids..., ya just gotta tell people what a swell guy he is!)

SO! Just who is QAnon: 

There is a worldwide cabal of Satan-worshiping pedophiles who essentially rule the world, and they control everything. They control politicians, and they control the media. They control Hollywood, and they cover up their existence! And they would continue ruling the world were it not for the election of President Donald Trump

Donald Trump..., in this theory..., knows all about this evil cabal's wrongdoing. (One of the reasons that Donald Trump was elected was to put an end to them. We would be ignorant of this behind-the-scenes battle were it not for "Q." 

So there ya have it folks... while the Americans have al this neat conspiracy stuff ... all we have is the belief that Santa Claus is, in fact, a Canadian! 

The way I see it anyway!

Now what Donald?

 Dear Friends:

Instead of running the country because of COVID-19..., the Economy..., and the Black Live's Matter issue, Donald Drumpf is involved in a shit-slinging war of words with Goodyear tire company about something or other!

It doesn't even matter what the fucking issue is folks... the United States needs a President who is there in mind as well as body...... and Donald just doesn't seem to be capable of it!

The way I see it anyway!



UFO's?

Dear Friends:

Yesterday we had an article about UFO conspiracy theories floating around [sic] the Internet and your ever faithful reporter has always believed that UFOs weren't real.... or at least not alien craft visiting from the depths of space... but that doesn't necessarily mean I'm right or that they might be something else!

SO!

I'm pleased to announce that our people at the "Perspective Research Department" have obtained a [classified] copy of the latest government report on these objects and from the explanation given there might be something to this whole thing after all!

The way I see it anyway!  😉

Election Outcome!

Stupid Is As Stupid Does!

 Dear Friends:

The longer I think about it the more convinced I am that Americans are fundamentally different from Canadians. (I used to think that we were about the same type of folks....... until Drumpf made me think about just what was going on down there!)

There is something about the Americans that is the result of their wild west attitude, their inflexible and partisan way of thinking about some stuff... or just a general lack of education and sophistication of a large percentage of the population that makes a lot of the things they do rather weird, and/or ill-advised!

Take this headline as an example: Poll: Less than half of Americans say they will get a Covid-19 vaccine once it becomes available!

Now I can tell you that almost every man, woman and child will be in line for a vaccine shot once they become available here in Canada...... but; forty-four percent of American adults say they would get the vaccine, with 22 percent saying they wouldn't and 32 percent saying they aren't sure.

But then again these are the same people that claim we never went to the Moon, JFK was killed by the mob, Paul McCartney died and Elvis is still alive, the New World Order theory, (This states that a group of international elites controls governments, industry, and media organizations, with the goal of establishing global hegemony.)  Freemasons control large parts of the economies or judiciaries of a number of countries, and have alleged Masonic involvement in events surrounding the sinking of the Titanic and the crimes of Jack the Ripper, "The Jews killed Jesus," (Well, truth be told they didn't do the actual killing, but if you believe the bible they ratted him out to the Romans!) The Anti-Christ..... (except that maybe it's Donald Trump!) Islamic takeover of the world, UFO's, Rosswell and Alien abduction, the Illuminatti, Jews, the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, 911 was a conspiracy by the U.S. government, 2012 fatal mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, prompted numerous conspiracy theories, among which is the claim that it was a manufactured event with the aim of promoting gun control. Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke has theorized that Zionists were responsible, vaccinations and fluoridation of water, GLOBAL WARMINGClinton's assassination of political rivals and a pedophile child slave ring operated BY them from the basement of a pizza parlour......, and of course the Deep State!"

While the term is occasionally used as a neutral term to denote a nation's bureaucracy, the conspiratorial notion of a "deep state" has been revived under the Trump presidency. "Deep state" in the latter sense refers to an unidentified "powerful elite" who act in co-ordinated manipulation of a nation's politics and government. Proponents of such theories have included Canadian author Peter Dale Scott, who has promoted the idea in the US since at least the 1990s, as well as Breitbart NewsInfowars and US President Donald Trump. A 2017 poll by ABC News and The Washington Post indicated that 48% of Americans believe in the existence of a conspiratorial "deep state" in the US.[

In the modern era, political conspiracy theories are often spread using fake news on social media. 

A 2017 study of fake news published by the Shorenstein Center found that "misinformation is currently predominantly a pathology of the right."

Meanwhile, here in Canada the only conspiracy theory we have is that Santa Claus (and his workshop) are Canadian... you know..., from the "Great White North!"

The way I see it anyway!
