Canadians overwhelmingly support the governments decision to suspend diplomatic relations with Iran, according to a public opinion survey released on Wednesday by pollster Angus Reid.

Our immigration record isn’t that great, but the Gov’t seems to be tightening the noose lately. Canadians are getting sick of letting in questionable people who take advantage of our good will, and who would crap all over us the first chance they get.

That said, I hope our doors are always open to decent hard working Americans. Draft dodgers/AWOL Military people can get stuffed, however. This is just my opinion of course.
