The Honourable John McCallum,

The Honourable John McCallum,
I’ve read a pair of very disturbing Toronto Star articles this last week:
These both detail an agreement between Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney with United States Homeland security, to allow armed US soldiers to police Canadian locations. I am not surprised to find that this action to attempt to make Canadians more fearful, imposing a police state and police presence that is not justified, is being pushed by Minister Blaney. According to prior correspondence with your office, he was also responsible for tabling bill C-51 in the parliament.
This is objectionable for so many reasons that they are hard to enumerate.
I’d first like to point out that the United States has a long history of military and covert interference in other countries, and frankly, has not demonstrated a historical record of integrity that is sufficient to be trusted with the role of policing other countries. A concise but thorough synopsis of that disgusting history of interference can be found in William Blum’s book “Rogue State: A Guide to the World’s Only Superpower”.
In particular, note that this book also details military actions against Canada and Canadian citizens by psychopaths in the United States establishment that would be called terrorism if they were to occur in this day and age.
In my struggle to attempt to comprehend a claimed rationale for this action against Canada, I can come up with only one real possible justification, but it is only good for the United States, and is no good for Canadians in any way. That justification is a guess that not only have Blaney has negotiated for Canadians to be vassals of United States overlords, but that we will also pay for this privilege. With so much of the United States industrial base now destroyed by globalism made possible by agreements like NAFTA, one of the only remaining exports that they have available is military force and their armaments industry.
How much will Canadians pay for the privilege to be policed by United States military? To station United States military personal in Canada, there will be salary cost, equipment cost, berthing cost, plus costs for expenses such as food. In my opinion, all of these costs provide no conceivable benefit to Canadians in exchange. This role, if it was really required, could also support Canadians instead of the United States military establishment. I would like to know how much of each of these respective costs are Canadians expected to pay for? Are there other expenses that Canadians will be picking up the tab for to facilitate this invasion? How many Canadians will have to be paid to act as liaison between these US soldiers? The cost of the law suits that will occur when one of these soldiers shoots a Canadian without justification are hard for me to imagine. Has there been an estimate made for how much legal expense the Canadian government, and implicitly the Canadian taxpayers, will have to absorb if such an event occurs?
