Canada-US Relations: TBD

Recently when I was poking around on Wikipedia, I found myself reading about a series of bizarre medical conditions. Anything to avoid reading about Kevin O’Leary. Anyway, there I am reading about this very rare psychiatric condition called Capgras Syndrome. Now with Capgras, a person wakes up one morning and they are suddenly  convinced that people they are very familiar with—people they love—have been replaced by identical, unpredictable replicants. And there I was thinking gosh, what a terrible thing. But then I thought hey, that’s exactly how I feel about the United States since Election Day. It’s like the entire country has been replaced by aliens. Or at least 47 percent of them. It’s the only plausible explanation.

Fourteen months ago Canadians were up to our necks in a Federal election. Now we can debate what happened; did the Liberals get elected or were the Tories thrown out? But one thing is certain, the Trudeau campaign was a machine to behold. When it came to public opinion they knew exactly what would pass and what would fail the smell test. Now they’re in power, they’ve lost their sense of smell and they’re losing their sense of balance. The Liberals are about to go head first into a snow bank.
