Amid Unprecedented Crisis, The Potential Of FORTRESS CANADA Offers Us Hope
By Spencer Fernando, Exclusive to the National Citizens Coalition
Everyday seems to bring a new disastrous headline:
“Stock market plunges.”
“Number of infected rises.”
“Death toll rises.”
As the China Communist Party Coronavirus spreads around the world, our lives have been upended, our healthcare system is at risk, and the economy is facing devastation.
In this dark and disturbing time, it can be difficult to find hope.
But there is hope.
More and more people are realizing how vulnerable Canada is to what happens around the world, and are realizing that it doesn’t have to be this way.
A key idea growing in the minds of many is the idea of FORTRESS CANADA, a Canada that is self-sufficient, secure, able to defend our people, and is no longer dependent on foreign nations.
When we look at the facts, there is perhaps no other country on earth that has such great potential to be a self-sufficient fortress nation.
Our level of technology is high.
We are surrounded by either water, or a close ally on all our borders.
We have astounding resource wealth.
And the vast majority of our ‘foreign trade’ is with the United States, the world’s most powerful nation.
Simply put, there is zero reason Canada can’t emerge from this time of crisis as a self-sufficient country.
The idea of Fortress Canada means that we no longer import foreign oil, we no longer depend on countries like China for essentials like medical equipment and lifesaving drugs, and we no longer allow massive amounts of unrestricted travel from every corner of the globe.
