Canadian Forces plane arrives in New Orleans
OTTAWA -- A large Canadian Forces aircraft touched down in New Orleans on Sunday evening, prepared to evacuate "medically vulnerable" individuals from the region threatened by hurricane Gustav.
Way to go Canada, we can show our respect for the American people by providing help when they need it most. The Americans are always the first to arrive with aid to countries hit by natural disasters, now we can do our part.
I am sick of the anti-American idiots here in Canada. They would prefer to sit back and do nothing, all the while yapping about how "those Americans" brought it on themselves. These are sick individuals who care nothing about anyone but themselves.
MacKay said Canada's aid efforts come at "minimal cost." They were prompted both by a specific request for the plane from the U.S. NorthCom commander and also by a bilateral agreement signed February 2007 to support each other in times of need, he said.
"This is a purely humanitarian relief effort, in keeping with the best traditions of our country and I would call it a pre-emptive effort at relief and assistance," MacKay said.
The minister added Canada is ready to provide further assistance if necessary, potentially including more aircraft, HMCS St. John -- already stationed in the region -- or the DART team of engineers, who could provide construction capabilities or water purification.
Canada is back! We have a chance to show our humanitarian side. Let's see what the lefties think about that, nothing good I'm sure. If you can stand it, go and see the disgusting comments at the Globe and Mail about more American troops being deployed to Kandahar to help our troops. I will not link to it, because it just makes the Globe think they are popular.
I still remember the Lebanese complaining about the boats that rescued them, and then six months later they had all left, on our dime. Watch for the lefties to start yapping about the cost of the flights to help disabled Americans. It strikes me that lefties have no souls, that's why they are so negative. Or maybe they are just self involved, heartless and immature.
Good luck my American friends, be safe.
