B.C. is catching hell. Aren't you glad we have the buffoon president who doesn't believe in global warming and, ever so boldly and intelligently pulled out of the Paris Agreement. Something like over 180 wild fires raging right now. Understand that we, as Americans can come off as nuts, but understand that most of us aren't anywhere as nuts as trump "fans".
I think British Columbia is one of the most beautiful places on this earth.

The exodus from the states began not long after trump was elected. Most leaving and crossing the border are refugees from the middle east and, currently, haiti who are afraid trump will send them back. There were some who walked through snow and lost parts of their bodies due to frostbite last winter.

White supremacists in Canada are emboldened by the maniacs in the U.S. I watched a short documentary of Charlottesville and one of the nazis said he had come down from Canada (I will post that in the supremacy thread, later).

British Colombia is having the worst wildfire season in recorded history. More than two million five hundred thousand acres have burned--and there will be plenty more. Global warming is a bitch, and it's expensive and very unhealthy.

NAFTA negotiations. Watch out--trump is all about the atr of the deal. He's the master deal maker--just ask him.

A huge, new telescope in Canada is tracking the history of the universe, it's expansion, and then some. Pretty impressive. Pretty neat. Actually, totally awesome.

Now, let's look at what's going on in the good ole U.S. of A.
trump's chief pick to head NASA is from oklahoma, has no formal educated background in science, is a climate denier, was a fighter pilot, likes the moon, and ted cruz supports his nomination (that ought to tell you something).
http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2017/09/04/548472775/trump-picks-oklahoma-congressman-to-head-nasa
and, then another non scientist nominated, by trump, to a top scientist position--this slob, sam clovs.

Ultra-nationalists vs antifa on Canadian border (they're Canadians). All about muslims and sharia law.
