USXCanada wrote an interesting post titled: Anti-Americanism in Canada.
So, my point is this:
On Thursday October 5, 2012 the following appeared on page A15 of the National Post:
What do you think of America?
Anti-U.S. sentiment is raging in some Muslim countries, but has take an more subtle tone in the past, even here in Canada.

Here is what I suggest.
1. It would be good to get a number of these off to the National Post; but in addition
2. Why not post 75 word letters as comments here.
The Isaac Brock Society (Petros under his real name) can then send a letter to the National Post that will reference this post and the comments. This may be a way to raise awareness on some of these issues. You might find the following article that appeared in the 2009 National Post to be of interest.
A 2009 article by Graeme Hamilton titled: Can Obama end our anti-Americansism?
General National Post articles on Anti-Americanism are here.
It seems to me that Anti-Americanism is at a fever pitch. It is NOT better under Obama. Now, US citizens abroad have become extremely articulate sources of anti-Americanism. Hardly surprising, given the abuse of US citizens abroad and FATCA. That said, FATCA is an attack on the sovereignty of Canada. This is an issue that should be of interest to all Canadians.
Just a thought, as @Tiger notes, we must find ways to get the story into media. FATCA hurts all Canadians and all freedom loving people everywhere.
To be clear, this should not be a bunch of general anti-Americanism (there is enough of that in other parts of the world). It should focus on the aspects of FATCA and citizenship-based taxation that affect Canada as a whole. Quite, obviously the issue is with the government and not with “amber waves of grain”.
