c'mon...50mill is nothing in the grand scheme of things

and everyone knows just because we throw more money at the system doesn't mean it's gonna run smoother

just take a look at how much (or the lack thereof) medical school enrolment has increased to meet the demand of the system and how impossible it is for foreign trained professionals to work here...yep professional self-protection at its best.

Better off donating that money than letting the bloodsucking unions take it.

I don't often donate, but when i do, i make sure its food/water/anything other than money itself. Why? Because i don't know who's pocket it's going into.


We keep sending money, and lo and behold the money just magically disapears and their lives are still just as bad as before. $50 million in reconstructing infrastructure, supplying food,providing jobs and a future for them goes much, much further then just a cheque to do whatever they like, because some of that money will go missing, or put in the wrong use.

So, when you are finished donating all the canned goods, water and blankets and whatever else, those that donate money will pay for the shipping company that is needed to move this shit around for you. Oh, and I'm sure that everyone is an expert on all things, so you the items you donate all stand a 100% chance of being the exact right items that are needed, 100% of the time.

Or, a company can pay for items to be purchased, that are needed, from locations that make sense, and can have those items shipped, in bulk, to the locations that make sense.

What about all the aid we gave the US after hurricane Katrina. Did Cherry say shit?


Don Cherry is a racist who hides behind the Canadian flag and military.

There's no doubt that Cherry has some questionable views when it comes to minorities, a few years ago he didn't want a Sikh war veteran joining a legion because he wore a turban.

The US provided about $466 million in aid to Haiti. This value does NOT include what private US organizations (redcross, worldvision) raised, about another $600 mil(of course a percentage of people around the world donated to that as well). Go on wiki, google, stat sites and you can confirm. They were in a financial drama when all this went down, and of course the right winged conservatives argued it was too much; but the people did not complain about how much money was going toward relief efforts.

I don't even see how this is even an argument, I would compare Don Cherry to Piers Morgan but atleast Piers Morgan is arguing for anti-gun laws which I support.

EDIT: Forgot to mention; ask yourself, how much is BC spending to unify our driver's license and care card again? EXACTLY.

Disasters = payouts for politicians. Look at the mess with super storm Sandy, it's been like 6 weeks and the $60 billion aid package hasn't passed congress yet. I believe they split the bill up and passed the first phase which was $10 billion but one of the reason why the $60 billion package wasn't brought to the floor for a vote was because it was full of pork. Who cares about the people who lost everything and need the aid money, lets instead focus on adding bullshit stuff that had nothing to do with the storm and make these people wait months before they see any help.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for helping people but we're not living in a world run by mother Teresa, most people are corrupt and they use major disasters to line their own pockets especially governments in 3rd world countries so that's why I'm all for sending supplies, I'm not for sending large amounts of money even if it's going to trusted NGO's and UN based groups because at the end of the day you can't monitor the money and the people who actually need the help rarely get it.

Please no more of him on hockey either. He should stick to commercials, and maybe dressing up like a clown on granville st. every other night.

Just how the NWO flooded Mexico with subsidized corn, making them food independent and over tuned many into automobile factory workers...
they also flooded Haiti with dirt cheap rice and destined its people to be sweat shop clothes workers.
People in Haiti eat mud cookies (mud and cooking oil) to fill their stomachs then Canada comes with a band-aid... this is all theater when you can see through the blinds.


I also dont know what to make of Cherry, is he shifting our spending blame here or is he truly making an political statement against the government.

A funny and Don Cherry like rant
