Any time you mention "Israel" or "Jew" these loonies start squawking
"anti-semite" like a bunch of stuck pigs. They're trained to do it
from birth, doesn't matter what you say that's their automatic
response. Like the merkins that they rule they have no free will.
Your ignorance of geography and business is truly astounding! You are truly
as dumb as a post if you believe that! Better take a look at a map! Canada
has a population of about 30 million people. Windsor, Ontario is the only
sizeable Canadian border town and it has a population of only 304,430
people or 1% of Canada's population. Most Canadian border towns are indeed
very small towns. Toronto, Ontario on the other hand has a population of 4.5
million people and is the largest city in Canada. Toronto is about 80 miles
from the nearest U.S. border crossing. Montreal, Quebec is the second
largest city in Canada with a population of about 2 million. Montreal is
about 90 miles from the nearest U.S. border point. Ottawa, Ontario has a
population of about 1.2 million and is 61 miles from the border. London,
Ontario has a population of 331,000 and is 132 miles from the border.
Vancouver, British Columbia has a population of about 600,000 people and is
about 235 miles from the nearest U.S. border point. Victoria, British
Columbia has a population of about 300,000 and is about 210 miles from the
nearest U.S. border. Edmonton, Alberta has a population of about 800,000
people and is about 633 miles from the nearest U.S. border town. Calgary,
Alberta had a population of about 1 million people and is about 455 miles
from the nearest U.S. border point. Winnipeg, Manitoba has a population of
just over 650,000 and is 69 miles from the U.S. border. From this handful
of 9 random Canadian cities I have shown that 11.4 million people live well
beyond 10 miles of the U.S. border. Do the math - that's about 38% of
Canada's population in 9 cities and all beyond your 10 mile statement. I
would hazard a guess that well less than 5% of Canada's population are
within 10 miles of the U.S. border. Dumbass!!!
As to who they work for, I can only assure you that "most of them" do not
"work for US owned companies." Outside of the auto manufacturers, Canada's
largest employers are Federal and Provincial governments, Canadian Financial
Institutions (which dwarf most U.S. financial institutions!) Canadian
Insurance Institutions, Educational Institutions, Canadian owned and
operated Utility Companies including numerous nuclear power generating
stations, thousands upon thousands of independent business operators and
manufacturers. My friend, I would like to humbly suggest that you are
either a fool or an actor playing a fool!!!
"He" is actually a bipolar housewife from New Jersey -"he" has no life
as such, and spends 24/7 making inane posts to usenet under various
nyms. "He" is currently posting mainly as "Ken Ehrett" and "Sara
Czepiel" with a few extra nyms thrown in.
"Ken" in real life is a bipolar alcoholic. Hope this explains "his"
The last time I was in Orlando, 1/4 of them were there at Disney, Universal,
etc. When I was in Fort La di da, I think I found another fourth. :-)
Then in April, they all go home.
When I worked in Plattsburgh about 20 years ago, I was amazed to find
Montreal was so far away, because there must have been 5 Canadian cars for
every US car in P'burgh. the locals told me that the Canadians come down,
shop, eat, etc, and then drive home on a regular basis.
So I decided to drive to Montreal, since I did want to visit and it had to
be close. Well, I drove and I drove and I drove across a vast nothingness
until I hit the border. I pity those guys commute. Then I drove and I
drove and I drove across another vast nothingness until I finally got to
Montreal. I can't imagine people driving all that way on a regular basis to
Of course, I think I found out why. Do you know how hard it is to order in
a McDonald's in Montreal? :-)
LMAO! Tom, I found that out when my wife and I drove through Montreal with
the kids on our way to the east coast. We didn't make the same mistake on
the way back. We came back state-side through Bangor, Maine where we all
spoke the same language!
Actually that isn't it. It is the same reason they are consuming all
the Portland Cement, Timber, re-bar, and other construction materials
they can get their hands on. They are in the process of building a
series of massive Hydro-Electric projects and cities surrounding them
from scratch. This is so they can build and power the factories that
they do not currently have in order to produce all the components of
the products they mostly only assemble now.
They are also having a tad of a problem with quality in their domestic
car market and aren't making many strides in correcting them. I maybe
a little off but the average all in cost for Japanese auto worker is
~$60 an hour. A Korean's is ~$22, and a Chinese about ~$2. Right
there that ought to tell ya something.
