The Corner

And One From Toronto

For the first time in my life I am ashamed to be Canadian. I agree whole heartedly with Michael Walker’s National Post colum.

Canada’s shame will be complete when the day comes when we need to turn to America for help and the Americans embrace us and provide what it is we need. America will teach us what it means to be a good friend and a good brother.

Please tell your readers that many Canadians are truly ashamed of our government today. The Canadian heart is full of righteousness today. It is fashionable today to be anti-American and Canada has sold out it’s brother for no reason but fashion. We have disgraced ourselves.

With all my humanity, I apologise for the actions of my country.
