Welcome to Crazy Canadian Comments, a weekly column featuring the most outlandish comments made on popular news sites (mostly the National Post and Globe and Mail, because that’s where all the angry senior citizens are).

You know the drill. Let’s get down to business. First off, an article on the National Post. An MP claimed that Canada needs its own Hawaii. A union with Turks and Caicos, perhaps?

C’mon, this is an old idea. Napoleon. Invasions. Commenters joking back-and-forth. Nothin’ to see here, folks. Your usual self-righteous– wait a minute. A commenter saves the day, by calling out these ignorant Anglos and their racist tendencies. This entire comment thread was an attack against Quebec. They almost got away with it. We are grateful to have this Francophone vigilante by our side.

 

Where next? The Globe and Mail, of course! It’s an article about temporary foreign workers, and Ottawa’s decision to approve many minimum-wage TFW applications.

Of course! Harper’s 2015 election platform features balancing our federal budget, and also bringing Canada’s economic and social conditions to that of a third world country.

 

 

Now to the reliable source of hate-filled people: Sun News! Justin Trudeau’s stance on abortion is controversial, despite claims that the debate should be considered long closed.

Wait, what? Does Trudeau keep a lipstick-stained photograph of Stephen Harper under his pillow? He never said he doesn’t.

 

What’s this? More National Post?! An article about Justin Trudeau’s incompetence. This is going to be fun.

Way to make a direct quote from Conservative attack ads. What’s even funnier is these commenters getting confused by each others’ responses. Old people and technology mix well.

 

The finale…a Sun News post. Ontario election coverage is a great environment for strange anecdotes.

LIEBERALS. AGAIN. ALWAYS THE LIEBERALS. Andy Taylor, Top Commenter and innovative comedian really hit the mark with his LIEberal joke. He also listed all of the crimes against humanity which the Ontario Liberals are responsible for. Y’know, fraud, manslaughter, etc.

 

Always the damn Lieberals.
