Well, obviously, and thankfully, nothing came of it. But I'm sure New York's Finest and the USSC would greatly like to talk to this man.

Seeing that you think Cfalk's comments are serious, I'd say it's you who's gone off the deep end.

But hey, as a person who will vote for Bush, what do I know?

Simple fact of life is that the President of the United States is always going to be in danger. He doesn't have that huge security detail just for looks. That there was apparently a plot to harm him is attention-catching, but hardly surprising.

The NYPD is some of the best in the world, and they'll do whatever needs to be done to provide adequate protection.

This is indicative of his policies. Bush will be in danger for the rest of his life and in my opinion, he has placed all Americans in more danger than before he was "elected".

This doesn't have to be. Canada's Prime Minister doesn't need an enormous security detail. He can be found enjoying a hockey game in regular seats. He can be found strolling the grounds of Parliament, which by the way is completely accessible by the public.

In short, nobody is out to get him it seems except for Bush.

Not necessarily. President William McKinley was assassinated in Buffalo by a mentally disturbed man. Ronald Reagan was shot so John Hinckley could impress Jodie Foster.

He has a really high-profile job.

You've just demonstrated that the US in general is dangerous. Plenty of private non-presidential citizens are injured or killed in fairly arbitrary circumstances. And of course celebrity makes you somewhat of a target as well. Your observations are noted, but I'm not talking about those issues.

Not true. The Cdn PM's security it very tight. He cannot and does not roam around at will. Parliament is like an armed camp with most of it off-limits. In other words, Canadian political security is similar to the US.

What country do you live in YYZ717? Have you actually been to Parliament Hill in Ottawa? I have visited parliament several times including about a month ago. It has never been an "armed camp". Any visitor is free to roam the grounds freely. You can also enter the buildings but of course access to certain offices and areas are restricted. Much of the buildings are accessible on free guided tours but I wasn't talking about the buildings. I was talking about the grounds.

Compared to the average Canadian this may be true. But nowhere near the same concern as the US president.

Your statments are quite misleading.

Canada. In one of the 2 "have" provinces that pays MB's bills.

Have you actually been to Parliament Hill in Ottawa?

Yes, last summer.

Only a tiny portion of the bldgs are accessible on guided tours.

Your statments are quite misleading.

Yours are. You are once again trying to paint a picture that things are TOTALLY DIFFERENT up here in Canada to further your agenda of positioning Canada as being completely different from the US in all ways, cultural, political and economic.

Talk about misleading statements....

You constantly post in terms of province against province. You can barely stand to consider we live in the same country. You constantly base your attacks on Manitoba when you want to debate issues with me.

You avoid debating the real issues by diverting attention to where I live instead of what I said.

What exactly do you plan to achieve by all this besides further convincing us that you really don't want to be here in Canada?

YYZ717, try to stick to the topic and avoid attacking people on the basis of where they live within the federation. It makes no sense.

Manitoba is as much a part of Canada as Ontario Yyz717. That province helps put food on your table.

MB has been a have-not province for over 20 years. It is a fiscal burden on Canada, along with Quebec and Atlantic Canada. ON and AB contribute fiscally to Canada. BC and SK are marginal net recipients of federal aid.

Of course MB is part of Canada but they are not pulling their fiscal weight and are being subsidized by ON and AB. This weakens Canada.

Another example of YYZ717 making noise for the sake of being heard. Why can't you stay on topic? I could sink to your level and start attacking Ontario, but to what end? I have nothing against Ontario or any of the provinces in our great country. Even if it does allows fascists to live there.
Your simplistic view on the economy of this country doesn't seem to support you claim that you are a "Director of Finance".

But I digress to the REAL topic....

Further to comparisons between the protection of leaders, Paul Martin visited Winnipeg yesterday. He walked around with visible albeit minimum security. He made speeches, walked down the street and even walked by protesters without the need for close support from body guards. He shook hands (but I didn't see him kiss any babies) in full view of "God and everyone".

So why the big difference?

I don't think any Canadian PM has ever been assasinated. Forgive me if I am wrong.

On the other side, over here...we'll it's been definitely been more than that. After the assasination of Kennedy, presidential security has become very tight. After that day, future presidents never rode in convertibles.

When you are the leader of currently the most powerful nation in the world, there are going to be a lot of people out there who don't like you. Both in and out of the national borders. Therefore the security is necessary and Bush has nothing to do with it.

BTW: Anna Lindh was assasinated by a lunatic. Does that make Sweeden a dangerous country?

Power makes you unlikable? I would suggest that several leaders of much less powerful nations in the world are in much more danger of being attacked or assasinated than the US president.

As a matter of fact, there are several examples in recent history. So I don't think its "power". I think its "policy".

Then what explains the high security around Presidents like Carter or Clinton. Both were well liked around the world, yet they kept up their guard. I'm sure part of the reason are our policies in the past that have made any president hated, whether or not he's president at the time, but that is not the only factor. Yes I do think power makes someone not as liked as someone who is not as powerful.
