I know how many here feel about polls. However, it does suggest that the Canadian populace is waking up to reality and may want to do something about it ... maybe.

That's what happens when you have so many socialist/communist immigrants. They bring their cultures with them and pretty soon liberty vanishes down la toilette. What real dangers do Canadians, in fact, face? And is it not possible to deal with them -- if they really do exist -- and still have freedom?
Let us hope for once polls are somewhat indicative of the "national attitude" on this issue. Then let your government take the responsibility of becoming very very unfair, and follow the Brits,French and others to make life miserable at best for any muslim cleric or "leader" to want to even consider grooming future terrorists. And do everything in ones power to first try to figure out how to put them away for very long jail terms on the slightest of charges. And if no loopholes can be found export them to pre-arranged ME countries where the arrangements can be made to turn them into fertilizer. A few years in this mode and we shall see a much improved security condition in our countries. What else is going to work, outside of law breaking actions. Change the laws as required.

I wonder. They've already given Canadian Islamists everything they have asked for. Are they willing to begin scrutinizing CAIR's activities in Canada? Are they willing to send agents into Canadian mosques and madrassahs? Because if they aren't willing, then they remain clueless.

Could it be that Canada's radical left wing has finally worn out its welcome? I hope so!

I think Canada can no longer smugly follow Britain's lead in appeasing Muslim extremists and offering assylum to those who will abuse it.
The London bombings made them understand that they aren't safe either, that these radicals can't be appeased, that they attack for no cause, that you must take action.
I think Blair's recent speeches have knocked some sense into them. Perhaps Canada will come to their senses on the rather hateful way some of their Lefty politicians have addressed this country and President Bush over 9/11 and subsequent events.
If/when Canada gets hit, they're going to find that they're woefully unprepared.
A VERY significant part of the US response, above and beyond the WOT has been military. Ships moved into NY harbor to assist in evacuation and cleanup. Fighters setting up no fly zones. National Guard protecting monuments and other likely targets. NG assisting in the cleanup process.
Is canada's military up to the task? Uh huh.

(Liberal Democrats are liars, cheats and thieves with no morals, scruples, ethics or honor!)
Western "Canada" probably want to fight, Central Canada asks "what problems?", Quebec wants to cut and run, and the Maritimes say "Wherever Central Canada stands we stand, wherever he goes we go" (Borrowing the words coined by Michael Joseph Savage, the WWII era Prime Minister of New Zealand)
Well, maybe we should vision this as what happens in the year 2015:
The War on Terrorism is now in its 14th year. After George W. Bush's presidency and the defeat of US Democratic candidacy of Hillary Clinton and Rod Blagojevich, the US Democrats finally decided to adopt the war on terrorism as their policy platform, particularly as the simultaneous nuclear bomb attacks in San Francisco, Seattle, and Boston in May 2011 had killed 39% of teh Democratic Party base and Washington had the first Republican Senate and Governor for the first time in more than 30 years, while the reconstituted City of San Francisco elected its first ever conservative Republican mayor.
Meanwhile President Owens is busy negotiating with the Federal Republic of the Prairies over coordinating North American missile shield strengthening project and for the first time, the missile shield system will cover areas outside the United States. President Ted Morton had described President Owen as a very valuable friend of the Prairies while Owen remarked that the Prairies is the first nation adjacent to the United States to be serious about the war on terrorism. Following the Prairies' decision to tighten all immigrations and expulaion of all foreign born (including Canadian) inams, the two countries had agreed to form a single labour market by 2018. When it becomes effective, residents from Yellowknife to Victoria, from Vancouver to Winnipeg will effectively be treated as US citizens when they cross the US border.
Meanwhile, relations with the Realm of Canada remained semi-officially frosty. Many in Canada blamed Washington for the terrorist attacks in Toronto in July 2013 and Washington's recognition of the Federal Republic of the Prairies in 2010. The Canadian Prime Minister Dalton McGuinty has not yet met President Owen in any bilateral occasions. Because Canada appeared unconcerned with news that the 2011 terrorist attacks used Canada as their staging point, the United States had decided to inspect all incoming visitors crossing from the International Falls to Calais crossings and reclassified canadian visitors as equal in status as the visa-waiver nations meaning they are required to carry their passports to enter the United States and cannot stay in the United States visa free for more than 90 days. Teams of volunteers have guarded the Canada-US borders since 2013 and they are unconcerned with the ridicule from Canadian press and people.
The Realm of Canada has been losing its population to the Prairies and the United States by 600,000 per year. The Prairies now has the GDP of 70% of Canada, versus 35% 10 years ago. Many of the best researchers have moved to Calgary from Ontario and industrial growth of Canada has been 1.5%. On the other hand, 1/3 of Chinese, Indians, and 90% US draft dodgers in Vancouver have decided to relocate to Canada as they are unhappy with the direction the Prairies is going. Muslims continue to settle freely in Canada - it is now estimated Canada's Middle Eastern and Pakistani Muslim population is five times the nunber in 2005. The four Maritimes provinces are raising the spectre of joining the United States while Quebec separatism remains strong, the Prairies' strong economic performances have convinced the Quebecois that socialism does not work and they intend to go it alone without all the federal payment transfers. Ontario residents blame the developments on "those Yanks and their fifth columnists in the West, who have wrecked our nation!". Even five years after independence, Ottawa still has no official diplomatic relations with Edmonton even when Canadians can cross the Canada-Prairies border freely.
Let's see if this becomes reality? ;-)
