Just a few words about what I thought of the speeches when Pres. Bush visited Halifax in Dec. of 2004.

Re: President Bush Visits Halifax, Nova Scotia (Canada)



As a proud Canadian I sat glued to my television as first our Prime Minister and then your president addressed out nation. As it was the first time I listened to either make a speech before I was quite impressed with both their orations. The leaders of both our countries as the President stated have jobs to do, the U.S. military system is the only real military power that the rebellious countries of the world respect, and Canada is the police force going in afterwards to insure that the rebellious countries remain at peace.


Canada and the United States are like two members of the same family. Like siblings, we don’t always see eye to eye, don’t always want to share our things with each other, often have different friends, and usually do things in different ways from one another.  Like siblings we also know we can count on each other when we need help, when one of us is hurt or under attack we are always there for each other.


As a neighbour I worried and fretted for the past few days that the protestors and peaceniks coming out or the woodwork and pushing the right panic buttons for the press to latch onto would cause the citizens of the United States to think that we are all against Bush, his administration and the military actions going on around the world. This just is not so, though I cannot speak for all Canadians I know I can speak for a great many and these are the ones that don’t believe in breaking the peace just to get their picture on the six o’clock news.


Another good comparison Mr. Bush made was what one of our past Prime Ministers (Mackenzie King), said in defence of sending Canadian troops to Europe to defend democracy during WW II. He said “We must take the war to the enemy not wait till the enemy was at our door…” and the president said this is what we are finally doing in the war on terrorism. When words and negotiation fail action is required and I thank God our American friends have the resources and perseverance to take the upper hand when necessary.


All that being said I congratulate and thank President Bush for visiting our Country and the kind words of praise and thanks he gave to our great country of Canada. If I could not be a Canadian the only other country  I would want to live in would be our big brother…”The United States of America”

And if I could not be a U.S. citizen my first choice would be Canadian. Being border to border it is important for our countries to be there for each other, whether it be during war or at all times.
Both of our leaders gave impressive talks when Mr. Bush was in Canada. It was his way of trying to let the Canadians know that our nation to their south wants to have them for our friends. Karen
