Why not Canada?
One of the biggest problems that Canada has developed over the years is the reduction of income to the Canadian treasury.
We no longer have a national railroad when we used to have two. We have no longer have a merchant navy fleet. We basically have given away all our commons so carefully built from 1935 to 1974. In itself this is bad, but we have also lost the revenue which they were created to produce. The less the country’s income the more is required of the working poor who cannot afford overseas hidey-holes.
We have idle steel mills in Ontario, idle saw mills and pulp mills in BC and Alberta, we have closed manufacturing plants all across Canada, we have GMO crops that half the world doesn’t want, and we have no real ability to refine our crude oil or even that gunk from Athabasca.
We have coal all over for manufacturing steel but instead we are shipping it off shore and buying the steel back; we have miles and miles of fertile soil in the prairies poisoned by GMO and toxic fertilizers; we have livestock so full of steroids or GMO grains that they are susceptible to disease: we have manufacturing plants dead because we won’t produce things that we buy from overseas using our raw products sold at giveaway prices.. We have lost all the jobs that go with this and we need to get them back.
It is time to look to what we can do not what we have been told we must do to survive in the global market. We have done it before and we can do it again.
This is not protectionism but survival and it is time we stepped up to the plate again. We cannot successfully trade if we have nothing to offer but raw resources which will eventually run out.
Why not nationalize CP and CN again? They must be making money and why are we allowing that money to go abroad. We used to have people traveling by rail from small towns everywhere to market towns , now everyone has a car they can’t really afford and that are costly to maintain and run. Mom and pop stores have been decimated and replaced by big box stores, almost all foreign owned. We are told that this is the only way as it is the way of the global market.
We do not believe it has to be this way.
Canada has so much to offer not only to our own citizens but to the world and we will never be complete and sovereign as long as we do not use what we have. Trade is essential but not at the prices we are being asked to pay.
It is time to say enough is enough and educate our young to work at something other than the texting keyboard on their cell phones. Give them pride in what they can make and accomplish.
We have a huge diversity of ideas and abilities which are being squandered behind the counters of Timmy’s or MacDonalds. We have a work force that is unprepared at this time to do the things we all need. What happens when the baby boomers are replaced with a workforce which does not know which end of a wrench to use, which lever operates the plough, what wood to use for a solid and fire proof door, or how to shingle a roof or even how to use welding torch?
We have the resources and the manpower and they are both going to waste.
Enough is enough and it is time to face the facts that as a nation we are broke, we need work for our young and we need industries and specially infrastructure owned by and for us all.
Mostly what we need is to rekindle the dream called Canada.
The Canadian Action Party knows all this and can and will make it happen. You can join us in this venture or you can sigh and carry on the way you are carrying on now. We would rather you joined us to make that difference in the life of all Canadians, particularly the coming generations.
