Complete and utter hogwash. The safe third country agreement between Canada and the US is very explicit. I suggest you read Article I, section 1, subsection a.

What about it?  It's just defining terms:

ARTICLE 1

  1.  In this Agreement,
      a.  “Country of Last Presence” means that country, being either Canada or the United States, in which the refugee claimant was physically present immediately prior to making a refugee status claim at a land border port of entry.

I'm not the genius though.  I saw a picture on the internet a couple years ago and had searched thrift shops and yard sales for flamingos for the last 2 years.  Finally said, Fuck It this year and just ordered from Amazon.

In other related Halloween Culture news, between the boyfriend and I, we've polished off 2 boxes of mini-chocolate bars. So far.   ;D

Hey, that's tantamount to peaking at a Christmas present before am 25th! Do 10 pushups and no candies before supper.

It is a policy to interpret the law to allow refugee applicants to circumvent the safe seco d country rule not any law. That double standard was created by Trudeau. Moon's assertion  is illogical.
...
It is only when you do not make an application at a safe country before coming to Canada you are disqualified from  doing so in Canada until Trudeau chose to arbitrarily refuse to enforce his own laws because he is too gutless to change them.

Complete and utter hogwash. The safe third country agreement between Canada and the US is very explicit. I suggest you read Article I, section 1, subsection a.

Cory Booker might be an option...He's relatively young, has had a fairly high-profile from his appearances on the judiciary committee, and is seen by many as a moderate.

The main complaint against him might be the fact that he's unmarried, which will give the far-right to attack him as being gay, or a pervert, or whatever. (Not that the attacks would be fair, just that they might be effective given a certain portion of the electorate.)

And we can be quite sure there is a portion of that electorate that will eat whatever pablum is put before them. To wit: yon current POTUS.

The Dems need to get their act together and select a good leader to head for 2020. Biden seems to be the best bet so far but then there is the age issue. O'Rourke might be a good choice. Too bad Obama couldn't get back in the game.

It's a joke that the self-styled home of democracy allows such transparently obvious voter suppression tactics to go on.
If it means anything, the U.S. is no longer considered a "full democracy". Instead, its ranked as a 'flawed democracy'.

I thought he was damn Canadian ? 

Ah well...

Probably because he would have a tougher time getting back into the US without his passport, even if he has become a US citizen.
