  1. all the poor people in India Should Sue Canada for all they have
  2. Unbelievable! I had no idea Canada is doing this.... shameful!
  3. Wow WTF Canada!
  4. This guy just referred to Europe as a developed country when it's a continent and not all of it is developed you can't have an idiot like that representing as a smart man in your country.
  5. Is this in revenge for Indian telephone scammers?
  6. This has been going on for a long time, so how about the individuals who have an issue with Canada initiate a movement to send over some protective gear for these workers. I'll be the first to donate if you do.
  7. Now , it's time to Russia for sell asbestos at India. haha
  8. Should be called, "Canada's pointless redundant taxpayer's financed news station".
  9. We are incapable of making these kinds of decisions until we have to. lol better at adapting than evolving 😓 just look at the pollution we cause in china.
  10. Why can't Canada continue to benefit its economy doing something completely legal in India. If Canada was to stop providing them this service another country would sell it tho them.
  11. Yikes. But I resent this report being framed as "Canada", as if all Canadians are responsible for it.

  16. What about the toxic waste they dump in Canadian drinking water, I dare you cucks to report on that one
