Toronto-- Long harboured Canadian resentment of Canada being annexed by the United States took a 90-degree angle on July 1 with Frank McKenna, Canadas Ambassador to the United States, turning the tables. McKenna says he will organize the more than 1 million Canadians in the United States to lecture Americans.
McKenna, whos already sent messages to 6,000 expatriates, intends to get in touch with 100,000 of them by weeks end. The rookie ambassador is pressing the "Canadian diaspora" to arm themselves with facts, to debate Americans and to get out and lobby when Washington makes decisions that can hurt Canadians, says the Toronto Star.
Fighting the U.S. on its own soil, albeit by stealth, McKenna is calling to action Florida snowbirds, northern exiles in Arizona, Hollywood comedians and actors, investment bankers in New York and professors and students at universities across the U.S.

Happy 4th of July! Celebrate freedom twice as hard for us conservatives and libertarians trapped in Canada.
apparently the good ambassador doesnt realize that they are in the US for a reason....
Will the EPA let us heat that much tar all at once?
And do we need a feather permit?
He obviously isn't.
Past time for him to go home.
What you should do is remind your countrymen of the liberal British newspaper that set out to lecture Americans and convince us to vote for John Kerry. Even liberals turned on them.
This will blow up in their face.
yeah if he doesnt like, he CAN go home. We won't stop him. Hell we might even pay for his plane ticket :)
Nah, why bother?
We should just tie him up, throw him in the back of a pickup truck, drive him to the nearest border and *THROW* him back across.
That's quite alright. We're not exactly shaking in our boots at the prospect of being lectured at by a bunch of non-voting leftists. In fact, usually when leftists start a public debate they get more of a debate than they bargained for. That's why they tend not to do too well on talk radio.
we could do that too, but I am a non-violent person ;-)

When was Canada annexed? I must have missed that one.
I know it will. That's what makes this both hilarious and tragic at the same time.
They've been culturally annexed. Except for Quebec, Canada pretty has no national culture of its own. And the rest of Canada isn't too keen about Quebec right now....
Culturally and economically. 76% of Canada's trade is with the US and 25% of the US's trade is with Canada. Other parts of Canada have their own culture, but they're either subdued at the moment, or purely regional/local.
Better they should "lecture" each other ~ after, of course, cutting stout switches from the nearest tree!
Well, maybe not. They'd like that.
This is a joke, right?
*protects his tender backside* Not all of us would. *grabs his shotgun* Now you stay in front of me where i can see you, partner. *narrows eyes* And drop the birch switch.
The ambassador is misinformed: the problem isn't organizing Canadians to lecture Americans, it's getting them to STOP.
No. In other news, I am looking to acquire an American citizenship in about 5-10 years time. Let me the hell out!
*******to get out and lobby when Washington makes decisions that can hurt Canadians,
well, at least it didn't take a 180-degree angle... (sounds like the education system in Canada is no better than the US system!)
