It's sometimes pretty clear who want as a "friend"

Apr 4, 2020 | 16:12 1 Ontario Premier Ford had an impressive news update performance today. He continues to tell the public like it is. Not only that but he made it clear whom he felt Ontario could and would rely on into the future. It couldn't have been more clear what he said about the US White House ordering 3M masks (ventilators and medical supplies) to not be sent to Canada specifically. How naive have we been to consider the US president to be any form of "ally". What a dotard.
Now thats the kind of talk that could convince me to vote for a "Conservative" for the first time.

I invite readers to see that frank COVID update that was broadcast about noon today. Look for it as a Youtube video and see the full broadcast. Search Google using "rob ford covid " or similar words to get the link. I'm sure it will also be all over every newscast tonight (well maybe not Fox)

How much more deceit, lies, distraction and ignorace by that dotard is humanity required to endure from a president of the United States; before he totally destroys the world and also the economy? I predict history will not be kind to his term of office; nor will the electorate who blindly follow and support his ideas be seen as anything but his enablers. Reply With Quote

  • Apr 4, 2020 | 16:22 2 I've been impressed with Ford's briefings during this epidemic. Not to take away from some of the other premiers, most are showing a genuine concern for their people. For all the bad press he received I think he has shown a genuine common sense attitude. Considering the dearth of prospective federal conservative leadership candidates he might be a credible alternative.

    Skippy...not so much. Trying to act like royalty addressing his subjects. Reply With Quote

  • Apr 4, 2020 | 16:54 3 I've never expected Trump to do anything for me as a Canadian. He's not my President. I'm not surprised in the least that he is looking out for his citizens. Good for him. I would love to see the same loyalty shown by that little a$$hole in Ottawa to his citizens here in Canada. Would you feed the neighbor kid and let your own children go hungry? Our little potato in charge would. Reply With Quote

  • Apr 4, 2020 | 16:54 4 Skippy Trudeau is going to answer kids questions....ffs...

    They don't vote or pay taxes...

    Maybe I shouldn't be irritated but it pisses me off when I write a letter to any MP..and it takes weeks for a response or an auto response that they have passed on the comments...

    Meanwhile nothing gets done for farmers...but Trudeau can answer a 10 year old's concerns... Reply With Quote

    Apr 4, 2020 | 18:15 8 But how EFFING stupid is it that we don’t make all that stuff right here!!!! Reply With Quote

  • Apr 4, 2020 | 18:16 9 I don't get the outrage with Trump. How can he send supplies out of country when his own people in desperate need.

    Why can't a country of 33 million people that is rich in resources get organized enough to make face masks? Reply With Quote

  • Apr 4, 2020 | 18:19 10 When the USA needs medical supplies Trump tells everyone what they need and at least try’s to act on it

    When Canada needs medical supplies Trudeau says it’s on order, just like the whole world is, good luck. Reply With Quote
    Apr 4, 2020 | 18:39 11 Maybe the principles of aid for foreign countries will change?

    It used to be countries would provide surplus in their country as aid to foreign countries, now the policy is to send cash to those countries so they can buy closer, and at a lower cost, etc. Let those low cost producers produce. Reply With Quote

    Apr 4, 2020 | 18:53 12 Why should Trump allow companies to export much needed supplies from the country he leads. Would it not make more sense for our leader to pick up the phone and discuss a solution with the Trump and make a deal... like we will ramp up shipping of required supplies to 3M to get more output if you can help us with mask supplies. Or can you have 3M send an engineer here to help us retool to produce additional masks here... but I struggle with the fact that we can not rapidly produce masks here without outside help.

    No 🌚 faces solution is to deal with this issue in a public address... for nothing but political posturing.

    I was disappointed with Doug Fords comments but I can give him some slack because he would not have a direct approach option and to me he is operating in the moment not holed up in a cottage...

    You offer Trump a viable solution and he will take it... try and corner him or discredit him and all bets are off. America first - nothing wrong with that; never played a sports game where winning wasn’t the goal.

    Apr 4, 2020 | 19:10 13 It's probably best to give up on people who don't grasp what fair trade entails.
    And it defies rationality for the US president to now default back to his position of two weeks ago about getting businesses back to normal at this instant.
    Delusional of course. Irresponsible to extreme. Where is the rationality.

    This won't end well Reply With Quote

  • Apr 4, 2020 | 19:14 14 Don’t blame Trump for taking care of his own wish our RETARD leader would do the same. Also don’t blame Ford for his disappointment in Trump. Honestly doesn’t surprise me Trump would shit on us just like he has to so many others but wish he would consider our society similar to there’s. This is a true wake up call to all our politicians to start the made in Canada again instead of relying on others for our needs. We as citizens also need to be able to take care of ourselves and not rely so much on government. Reply With Quote

  • Apr 4, 2020 | 19:15 15 I bet dollars to donuts that had Harper or Mulroney or even Cretian been in office now Trump would have taken a different stance. How do you support a prick that back stabs you and makes disparaging remarks about you the moment you turn your back, as was witnessed at G20 conferences etc. Reply With Quote

  • Apr 4, 2020 | 19:39 17 Trudeau thinks he can do whatever he wants and has no regard at all for our neighbour, then he thinks this neighbour is going to put us first, even before his own. Really, get real! You get what you give.we are all paying the price for his flagrant foreign relations with China, India, US. Reply With Quote

    Apr 4, 2020 | 20:11 19 Here's what I see. A "shithole" country with a 360M population out of a world population of some 7.7 billion.

    290,000 positive cases out of now more than 1.2 M worldwide. You do the percentages to see how badly mismanaged this contagion has been in the USA

    In what is claimed to have the best health care system, the strongest economy, the best intelligence system, the most advanced and creative networks and workers, and they get caught pants down with actual grave danger of their health care on verge of collapsing through lack of preparedness, ignoring medical experts warnings and not enough essential medical supplies.

    So the US boss steals or commandeers another countries orders and makes unilateral expropriation that wouldn't have even existed except for a country such as Canada who has always relied on that PRIMARY 3M supplier. OUR BAD!!!!
    Now I'd stand behind what Doug Ford said today. And for those who think it alright for president trump to steal from little Canada I'd suggest a way to get 1000 more Canadian nurses tomorrow morning and the apologizing to the Chinese for detaining a cell phone person on behalf of the US and shutting off pulp and softwood lumber and lifting up every available right hand middle finger. That would be a small start to show we do have a spine.

    We do have to guage the number of collaborators from within etc. Reply With Quote

  • Apr 4, 2020 | 20:36 20 I've got a box of 3M masks that says made in England and CBC gives Trump the finger daily. Canada burnt 56 million dollars worth of slightly out of date masks and and gave 16 tons to China. Liberals probably ordering refurbished Ones as we speak. Reply With Quote

    At least we might stay alive. You socialists would declare economic war on the US over ****ing face masks. The way I would let that play as Trump would be to cut off all trade with Canada and let the CIA start dropping covert shipments of weapons just past the border. Then watch the Canuckistanis tear each other apart. Reply With Quote

    Apr 4, 2020 | 21:37 25 My guess is that there is a little more to this story than what is being reported. It is very likely that we normally source these supplies from china because that is what we do in canuckistan. Unfortunately china's supplies are a little tied up right now because I've heard they have the flu over there. I am like premier Ford a bit disappointed that the president did make the same decision that Germany did when the Italians came knocking. Anyways wondering what premier Ford is planning to do to unleash Ontario manufacturing? They could have done that months ago. Biggest things lower to do is reduce regulation and lower labor cost by firing 1/3 of the civil service. Neither will happen so domestic production of ppe will not happen either. The other issue here is that the US is doing this under war time legislation and appropriately so since the evidence to thinking folk is that we are dealing with a chinese bio terrorism weapon. It was a priority to get the infection spread in the US and that is why there are significantly more infections there rather than canuckistan which is a chinese satellite state. Reply With Quote
    Apr 4, 2020 | 21:39 26 "Trump plans to add $4.832 trillion to the debt in his first term.8 That's a 24% increase from the $20.245 trillion debt at the end of Obama's last budget for FY 2017. If he remains in office for a second term, he plans to add $8.3 trillion for both terms. Trump had promised to eliminate the debt during his campaign."

    Trump knew how to go broke as a business man and it looks like he'll do just fine with the USA as well.

    Trump certainly had lots of practice so it will come easy for him! Reply With Quote

    That's my point We have the materials so why don't we just make the masks and not depend on a foreign country? Reply With Quote

    I saw the head of FEMA talk about the 3M masks.

    They have been on order by FEMA for a month...from 3M... not one delivered to US from US 3M plant... brokers instead selling N95 3M masks to highest bidders outside US. 3M has promised the masks to FEMA for over 2 weeks... said they were in transport to FEMA when in fact they were not. Can understand why FEMA is Angry... Trump had no choice but to call 3M on their dishonesty to FEMA. Trump got the industrial N95 masks quick approval... then 3M shipped to brokers instead of FEMA order. Reply With Quote
