Why are you lot all over the Canucks? I travel to Canada regularly on business. Compared to England, France and Germany, hell, even the United States, their Muslim population is minimal. The US has wot, 6 million muslims? Canada might have a couple hundred thousand at best.
I'll tell you when there's a muslim problem, it's when Northern towns like Leicester, Wrexham and Oldham are swarming with them like we have, that's when there's a problem.
My impression of Canada, like England, is that they are quietly ridding themselves of their problematic influences with regards to Muslims. When I was last there, the Mounties raided several locations and took several into custody, and the press barely, if at all, mentioned it, as far as I recall. Same thing was going on here, at least until that ricin incident.
Remember, the Canucks have a Liberal government, they're concerned about immigrant votes, hence why they're cleaning it up quietly. I wish the government in England would take a similar initiative, as I understand it, Canada has rounded up and deported well over 10,000 illegal asylum seekers since Sept 11th. Our government's done very little. We even have Imams calling for Islamic uprisings and preaching death to Britain, America, and Israel in our own bloody country. The Canucks are so politically correct, they'd never stand for the same occuring there, one thing I'll give them is they're consistent in not tolerating racism, no matter which direction it's coming from.
Sorry if my defence of the Canucks rubs some of you lot the wrong way, but they're hardly as problematic as your media makes them out to be.
The Canadians are not in the fight against terrorism - pure and simple. They are not serious about ridding their country of the sorry bastards with known terrorist connections. Canada is largely anti-American and pro UN. They are rabid socialists and embrace complete nationwide registration of firearms owned by law-abiding citizens. They trade with Fidel Castro and apparently have no quarrel with Saddam Hussein sufficient to want to physically remove him from power. Their government openly insults our president.
Go ahead and keep taking Canadian money. It's only business, right?
From some of the Canadians I have heard from, they would say differently!

You should drive up into Canada from Washington on I-5. As you near the border, the skyline is dominated by the gold domes of mosques - dozens of them. When you get into Vancouver and begin walking around downtown, you have been magically transported to the middle east (yes, I've been there plenty too) - with the only difference being that the architecture is western and the signs aren't in Arabic. If you are white in Vancouver, you're a minority for sure.
I am far more comfortable these days in the Asian communities up north than in the rest of New Tehran, thank you.
Even the mounties have had to alter their dress code for uniforms - turbans are now allowed as headgear. No Muslim influence you say? Bull$hit.

(.308 holes make invisible souls. Belt fed liberal eraser.)
If you feel like you have to apologize and qualify the frogs it seems to me like you are talking to yourself . Do what you want .
Quebeckers and the Canucks are the same people the 5th column in America are . All in due time .
