Just wondering, because I've read alot of posts about doing just this, but how many of you plan on bugging out to Canada?

As a Canadian I'm interested to know how many could be expected.

Why do that? Everything that happens in the US will also affect Canada. As far as healthcare and government interference, Canada is already "ahead" of us, although we are certainly catching up.
The only advantage I see is that there are many more areas to "get lost" in there. Idaho and Alaska and some other states have that same advantage, however.

I wouldnt mind being in Barre,Ontario or even other parts of Canada as I can think of worse places to be.I remember going into Canada in the 60's(by the locks) when I was a kid and we stopped for lunch and Mom and Dad like to have a beer but only my Dad and Iwere allowed in the bar no woman. We ending up going elsewhere for lunch as Mom was pretty ****ed off.

Yes, the gun laws here rather suck; but in an all out situation, I doubt anyone will be interested in what you have.

In the north are places you could fade completely out of touch with humanity. If you can survive the elements. This is the real deal. No quarter, no mercy. Epic fail here ends up as coyote food.

I doubt most could survive one winter. And frankly, from what I understand from most Canadians, they don't want any more Americans up here than necessary, lol.

well you don't have to worry about me coming. I haven't lost a thing up there in the cold, cold north.

Say, how about keeping all them now birds up there this coming winter.

The way so many of our American cousins seem to turn 99% of all discussions (the original topic doesn't matter, apparently) into liberal vs. conservative ideological debates, I can't imagine how they'd cope up here. Our brand of socialism would have them all apoplectic before they took their second breath. :xeye:

Forget the firearms laws.... :taped:

The main difference between the two IMHO is simple. In parts of the US you WILL have mall ninja, son of Rambos running around with AK-47s and the like. I mean how many threads do we have hear about the required number of guns and ammo? how many threads about "protecting" our stuff? All this to me sounds dangerous as everyday people start firing because they think they are saving the day.

In Canada the stricter gun laws and the outright ban on assault weapons will lessen this effect while still allowing society to remove threats. The more communal culture will also aid in survival as man Americans try to solo the coming hardships and protect their hoardings.

If I had a choice between a southern state and Canada. Throw me a Molson Canadain eh.

Just my 0.02
