Newsweek Praises Canada - Trolls Reacts

The editor of Newsweek has a piece in his latest issue about Canada's good fiscal management, Worthwhile Canadian Initiative. The piece points out our the lack of a banking crisis, a decade long record of of trade, current account and federal government surpluses.

The comments are filled with the kind of badly spelled knee jerk reaction that one can expect on the web. Following are some of the more insightful and stupid comments to this piece.

harrylogy: Frozenbutts,your banks don't fail for the same reason that dwarfs don't fall out of windows...They both r not big enough...

Illiterate and illogical
harrylogy: u pose as a doctor & u cannot even write " colleagues " correctly...

Crazy Anarchism
The real "success" of Canada isn't that they had more regulation, but that they had less government distortion of the market. If Canada had unregulated banks in addition to not distorting the home market they'd be doing even better than they are now. This merely illustrates once again that government isn't the solution to our problems, government is the problem.

Finally a Canadian reaction to being noticed.
weilim: I think the article is a bit overboard with the beaver loving.
