Canada is a failed state

The middle class got wiped out here in under one decade. Home prices are in the millions for every kind of detached home in large and mid sized cities, even tiny towns too. Rent is off the charts. Wages have dropped in all professions except M.D's and even with them, if they make 300k in one year (of the highest earners) the government takes off 150k (yes really).

Birth rate is practically zero and our population is only propped up with unsustainable levels of immigration. Of course people dislike immigrants because they're usually the pesky ''brown people'' and white's in Canada (and other countries) aren't thrilled over their cities and towns becoming immigrant majority as with culture changes among other things. But the thing is, I fear due to the rapidly declining quality of life in Canada over the things I mentioned I don't even think will be able to get ''Them'' in the coming years. Immigrants who have come to Canada seeking a better life have quickly realized this is not the type country where hard work will get you ahead. Many have left Canada to go to the United States or back home. So what does that mean for Canada's population growth? it's not hard to figure out. They have to get ''temporary foreign workers'' to fill those ''9 dollar an hour'' hard labour jobs as there's not enough people around to do them.

You top that all off with an era of the most corrupt politicians we've ever had and you have a sinking ship.

Cons of annexing Canada:
* it's Canada
* probably have some kind of low-key river war between the Quebecois and the Cajuns down in swamp country at the mouth of the Mississippi river over the language
* more Native tribes to deal with
* constant bickering about the metric system

Pros of annexing Canada:
* some of the leafs are actually allright
* nice place to go during summer if you're from the South (Victoria, B.C. was lovely when I went there in August some years ago)
* poutine

... I'm a fat fuck, so that last one is especially tempting.

If it must fail then let it fail fast and hard, the communist gobbledygook that people spew in defense of socialist programs in the US gets old.
Just make sure when your ship is sinking you don't lie about why, tell the truth so others can save their own boat.
Taxing yourself into prosperity is a fucking stupid concept, and as long as you continue to let people who think it works run your country you're fucked.
Scream loud enough and be a big enough problem that things change, or accept them as they are and suffer for it.

:stress: Guys if our hat collapses our ears will get cold!!!! THIS IS NOT A JOKE SAVE THE LEAFS!!!!!!!!


Jokes aside it seems like there's some sort of calamitous nonsense going on north of the border every other day. If I remember correctly canada is where inflation and supply chain shortages reared their heads first, and now I read the other day one of the (if not the only) major highways spanning the length of canada was shutdown due to a massive landslide destroying a huge section of the road.

That was just Vancouver, which links the second or third largest city to the rest of the country (not great but still).

I'm working my way through a US green card because I see the writing on the wall. Most Canadians are completely oblivious and obedient to the government, which...isn't a great sign for the future. Look up any mainstream article about vaccine passports and you'll see people buying the "the unvaccinated are the problem!" bullshit that was peddled.

Going to split hairs here and say that Vancouver doesn't crack the five largest when it comes to city proper. It goes Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, Ottawa, Edmonton, Mississauga, Winnipeg, and then Van City. It is only when you count the metropolitan area that Vancouver is the third largest in Canada.

That said, I don't think burgerlanders or anyone else in the world know or care how fragmented Canada truly is. Many people in the Windsor-Quebec City corridor and Lower Mainland of B.C. are parochial hicks whose knowledge to the world ends at city limits. There is a small, but growing, separatist sentiment in Alberta and Saskatchewan with some injun bands throwing periodic tantrums because the (hereditary) chief want more money to replace the SUV he drove into a ditch. Most leafs don't want to acknowledge it because it clashes with the utopian delusion of this "country".

Canada also exports electricity down to the states because of how many hydro dams we have. Of course I'm sure we will blow them all up at some point to save the fish populations that we already wiped out fifty years ago.

Yet somehow hydro's still more expensive than gas here...
