Canada Is Doomed: Three Signs That The Country Up North Is Screwed Beyond All Recognition

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Business Insider

You might be under the impression that everything is going pretty well in Canada, which had no banking collapse and only a mild recession in 2008-9.

You would be wrong.

The country is beset by political corruption scandals of the sort that people focus on when the economy is good. But it also has a massive ongoing housing bubble, and its economy is being propped up by a global commodities boom that now shows signs of slowing.

Let’s break down the three ominous signs.

First, the scandals:

  • Montreal Mayor Michael Applebaum got arrested this morning, charged with 14 counts including fraud and conspiracy. Applebaum was appointed to replace Gérald Tremblay, who resigned last year after getting caught up in a separate corruption scandal involving kickbacks from construction firms with alleged mafia links.
  • Toronto Mayor Rob Ford may or may not be on video smoking crack; last week, Toronto and Ontario police raided an apartment complex linked to the alleged video and arrested 43 people, including the two pictured on either side of Ford in this photo.
  • The mounties are investigating whether Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s former chief of staff, Nigel Wright, committed a crime when he gave a Conservative senator over $90,000 to pay back expenses that he had improperly claimed.
  • London, Ontario Mayor Joe Fontana is under indictment for allegedly using public money to pay for his son’s wedding reception. London is the 11th largest city in Canada. Fontana is seeking re-election.
  • Laval, Quebec mayor Alexandre Duplessis asked that his city, Canada’s 13th largest, be placed in receivership after “he and almost every sitting municipal politician in the city was linked to illegal political financing by a corruption-inquiry witness,” according to the National Post. His predecessor as mayor has been charged with two counts of “gangsterism.”

      At least they arrest corrupt/criminal politicians, here in the US we reward criminal politicians.

      We have an illegal Marxist negro in office. He is not too smart. Typical negro just goofs, golfs and grins and has a big mouth. He looks a lot like Alfred E Neumann when not BS’ing.

      We should eliminate all forms of human government. The power trip corrupts their already corrupted mind. We should pray while they prey. It is that serious.

      MR Barro all is fine here…..just a few bad eggs and they are being taken care of as we speak……now the amerikans have real problems and with a few smart people in the right places should and could take down a very corrupt government…..good luck as we have some good friends down there and they deserve better than what is going on.

      I live up and dont ever listen to the medias spin on Canada and its affairs by the cointelpro media in the states. This country is COMPLETELY TAKEN OVER by the elite and their agenda and its more in your face then down there. Do not ever think for a minute there is another and different world north of the border, thats what your LIEING media down there paints continually. Also dont ever think for a second whats happening in the US is not happening anywhere else or up here, ITS HAPPENING EVERYWHERE “GLOBALLY”.

      The first sign that the country up north is screwed is; prime minister Harper

      the second sign is; prime minister Harper

      The third sign is; prime minister Harper

      Need I say more?????

      Apfelbaum……………Hmmm I thought Jews are protected by their Scriptures the TALMUD.
      Go read for yourself,as ;long as you cheat a none Jew.http://www.sherryshriner.com/talmud_tidbits.htm
      Jews May Steal from Non-Jews, Baba Mezia 24a . If a Jew finds an object lost by a Gentile (“heathen”) it does not have to be returned. (Affirmed also in Baba Kamma 113b).
      Jews May Rob and Kill Non-Jews, Sanhedrin 57a . When a Jew murders a Gentile (“Cuthean”), there will be no death penalty. What a Jew steals from a Gentile he may keep.
      Very Interesting!
