Do Barbara Streisand and the wannabe American expats know what they're getting into?

According to the National Post (November 4) and Yahoo.com news, Barbara Striesand and a gang of Class B Hollywood actors are so fed up with America and George Bush's November 2 victory that they plan to emigrate to Canada. The Canadian government claims it takes time - probably not - as with most things in Canada (be it the stock market or the Order of Canada), it's who you know. Why back in 1991 it took Saddam Hussein's ambassador to the U.S., Mohammed Al-Mashat, less than a month to get to stay in Canada for the rest of his life.

But, more importantly, do Streisand and the Hollywood Bs know what they're getting into? Do Ms. Streisand and her Bs know that Canada is not a democracy in the American sense (things are much better right now because we have a minority government)? Do they know that the founders of Canada settled here to oppose the American Declaration of Independence and that they yearned to hang John Adams and George Washington for writing it and signing it. Do they know that Canada does not have a system of checks and balances in government? Do they know that the Canadian Prime Minister, unchecked by the House of Commons, appoints all of Canada's senators and, worse still, all of its judges and that, had the social conservative Canadian Alliance won the 2000 Election, Prime Minister Stockwell Day could have appointed his friend, Nazi lawyer Doug Christie, to the Supreme Court of Canada. Do they know that the regions of Canada have no power in the Federal Government (the power Americans of states large and small have through the U.S. senate). Perhaps they had best read about it in our August 7 story.
