Canada’s security services are making plans to blockade their southern border when the United States collapses into Civil War, according to reports.
On the heels of the latest downgrading of the U.S.A. on the democracy scale in the annual Freedom House rating of the world’s countries, Canada is bracing for the U.S. to fall apart and endanger the entire continent.
“Its democratic institutions have suffered erosion, as reflected in partisan pressure on the electoral process, bias and dysfunction in the criminal justice system, harmful policies on immigration and asylum seekers, and growing disparities in wealth, economic opportunity, and political influence,” Freedom House gravely noted.
The U.S.A. has slipped down eleven spots on the group’s freedom scale in the last decade and is now ranked below Argentina and Mongolia.
Canada is watching America’s slipping carefully.
Per Raw Story:
According to the Canadian Broadcast Corporation (CBC), the government to the north is fearful of what that might mean for them. Former national security advisers and directors at the Center for Strategic and International Studies warned Canada that the U.S. could become a “source of threat and instability” in the coming years.
Writing for CBC, Catharine Tunney cited those experts pondering a reconsideration of the alliance with the U.S.
Citing things like Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, Donald Trump’s attempt to overthrow the government, and the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol, they have a growing list of anti-democratic warnings. Their data gathering comes from top-secret information and a briefed cabinet on emerging threats. It warns that Canada has been complacent and warned it’s time to tackle things like Russia and Chinese espionage.
“The United States is and will remain our closest ally, but it could also become a source of threat and instability,” the report says.
“The ‘democratic backsliding’ in the United States, a rise in cyberattacks and climate change,” are cited as examples in the report.
I have to say, I don’t blame Canada for worrying.
