COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY MARK TALIANO IN RUSSIA TODAY

 

Well, many of us in Canada do oppose it, but we also recognize how little ability our government has for independent action in foreign affairs.

We are, as unpleasant as it sounds, almost totally colonized by America.

The US government has many, many options for making us uncomfortable – financial, economic, military, and diplomatic.

It is also true that the pleasant Justin Trudeau does not possess his father’s fiercely independent intelligence, but even father Pierre might face frustration with today’s neo-con Washington, a decidedly more aggressive and unforgiving place.

I wish it were otherwise, but it is important for people abroad to appreciate Canada’s reality, no matter how embarrassing it is for us.
