Had a conversation the other day with a person who insisted that Canadians have to be careful about being too smug after the January 6 insurrection. In her words “Canadians need to lose the attitude that it can’t happen here” She went on to point out that no one knows yet who all were behind organizing the trucker convoy back in February. It wasn’t as if a bunch of people just decided to truck across Canada and get together in Ottawa. She added, no one knows yet how much American involvement, particularly Trumper involvement there was. I tried to respond by saying that the convoy was no where close to threatening democracy the way January 6 did. Then I added , sure Ottawa was shut down for three weeks and the borders were closed but… Oh. Ok. I will leave it at that.
