Canada's hidden environmental problems

Winisk is a former Royal Canadian Air Force radar base nestled on the edge of Northern Ontario's Polar Bear Provincial Park on Hudson Bay, one of the most pristine wilderness areas left on earth. Abandoned by the military 40 years ago, this toxic wasteland has been left to rot, its chemicals leaking into the ground, as federal and provincial authorities bicker over who should pay for a cleanup.

I just can't imagine why Americans have a bad reputation throughout the world. With such well thought out opinions as yours being propagated, one can only wonder why Americans are forced to disguise themselves as Canadians when they travel to other countries. Of course, when the oppressed people of the nations you attempt to 'annex' see you, I hear they greet you as liberators. Oh, wait...

Oh wait... Thanks for reading!
