Michael Moore thinks Canada is the answer to everything, except where to move

What a coincidence that Current TV last night just happened to show Michael Moore’s 2002 film “Bowling for Columbine” (and will rerun it every night, twice each night, for a week). The director was on hand to answer questions via Twitter. Asked which nation should serve as the model for America’s gun control legislation, Moore told his followers that we should look north for guidance in just about all things, aside from how to treat baby seals.

Whoa! It’s not like Moore to get his facts jumbled, but assured that seal control is in full effect, Canada must be perfect, eh? That depends on whom you ask.

What? Moore knows everything about the Canadian health care system. After all, his 2007 film “Sicko” demonstrated just how poorly the United States’ health care system stacks up against Canada, France, the U.K. and even Cuba.

You also don’t see Moore moving to Canada, although his films have many viewers dreaming of relocating to that utopian country, and those already there are rolling out the welcome mat.

So, just what is it about Canada that makes everything better there? According to Moore, it’s that Canadians are raised from birth to think of “we” and not “me.”

If that’s the case, it would be selfish of us not to insist that Moore stop thinking of us for once and selfishly head north where he and the seals can live in harmony.

    You heard your northern brethern, Moore. Renounce your American citizenship and go to Canada. Condition: no visits to the U.S.

            In that case. I know where he can be picked up a couple times a year. I see him in public from time to time.

        You might have to buy him an extra seat on the plane.

    Michael Moore. The living embodiment of:

    “Sometimes it is better to remain quiet and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.”

    Be careful tramping through the woods of the Great White North. I understand Canadians collect and sell whale blubber at a premium.

    @mmflint Have you ever lived in Canada? Received healthcare in dire need? You have no idea of which you speak. The Canadian respondents speak the truth. You should move there permanently.

  • andycanuck

    I don’t like this moving Moore to Canada talk. Please, please stop it. Cuba. That’s where he belongs.

    Well maybe he should go live their, propagandist profiteering hack.

    Missing Women Inquiry Rules That Racism and Bias Caused ‘Critical Police Failures’

    David P. Ball

    December 18, 2012

    Columbia’s Attorney General Shirley Bond has pledged to implement
    “systemic changes” after the release of the highly critical Missing
    Women Commission of Inquiry’s final report, which concluded that police
    bias against indigenous women led to “colossal failure” in investigating
    the province’s largest-ever serial killer case…………http://indiancountrytodaymedianetwork.com/article/missing-women-inquiry-rules-racism-and-bias-caused-critical-police-failures-146406

    Stretched Beyond Human Limits: Death By Poverty in First Nations

    Pamela D Palmater


    Aboriginal policymakers in Canada have been historically based on
    the objective of assimilating the Indigenous population. There has been
    recent movement to create policies that support First Nations’
    self-governance. However, the Indian Act and its related policies have
    not been amended to reflect this change. Thus federal policymakers now
    hover between the two conflicting objectives. One result is chronic
    poverty in First Nations, a worsening problem that has stymied federal

    Historiquement, les décideurs politiques autochtones au Canada ont eu
    pour objectif d’assimiler la population autochtone. Par ailleurs, on a
    récemment pu observer un mouvement visant à créer des politiques
    soutenant l’autonomie gouvernementale des Premières Nations. Cependant,
    la Loi sur les Indiens et les politiques connexes n’ont pas été
    modifiées pour tenir compte de cette évolution. Les décideurs politiques
    fédéraux sont à présent tiraillés entre ces deux objectifs
    contradictoires. L’un des résultats est la pauvreté chronique au sein
    des Premières Nations, dont l’aggravation laisse les décideurs fédéraux
    impuissants. http://pi.library.yorku.ca/ojs/index.php/crsp/article/view/35220


      Cry all you want. Your people refuse to take responsibilty for themselves. You are confusing racism with the notion that everybody pulls their own weight.

  • BeeKaaay

    If he REALLY believed this, he’d move there.

    So he really does not believe what he is saying.

  • Bob Almighty

    Of course Canada is an example to the world, they have a CONSERVATIVE government.


      Amen. Americans seem to think we are all Liberals.

  • George Washington Mclintock

    By all means Tubby, fuck off to Canada and never, ever come back,

    • GaryTheBrave

      Wait til he gets his first tax bill on the incomes his movies make. Tehehehe.

    If only he would move to Canada. Whenever I see Michael Moore speak I want to shove long sharp objects in my ears.

    There are drawbacks to the Canadian medical system . Right now I am awaiting hip replacement surgery but because there are very few private hospitals in Canada I have been placed on a public waiting list. If I had the bucks and was American the operation would be done by now. Secondly Mikey if you smoke taxes on a pack of cigarettes are around $8.50 a pack; free health care dont come free

  • TocksNedlog

    More blubber for the Inuits.

  • v1cious

    All these insults, and yet you can’t dispute anything he said. Also you can’t just move to Canada (Believe me, I would’ve left decades ago), you have to have established residence for at least three years before you can even consider citizenship.

    • TocksNedlog

      Time’s a-wastin’!

    • Steve_J

      Instead of investing 3 years to establish residency decades ago you have remained in a country, you don’t seem to care for, for decades?

      • v1cious

        It’s called having a life and priorities. Some people have stuff to do besides sitting on Twitchy stewing in their anger all day.

        • Steve_J

          I’m not sure what this comment has to do with the fact you weren’t willing to fullfill the residency requirement necessary to become a Canadian citizen.

    • Catchance

      There were a whole bunch of Canadians who disputed everything he said. He just thinks he knows better.

      And if you had really really wanted to move there, you’d have done it. It’s so easy to make convenient excuses like “priorities”. The truth is, they probably wouldn’t take you, anyway, because in order to have all that, they insist that the people who move there actually have a job and can support themselves. From your answer I’m guessing that you’re not acceptable to them.


      Looks like a lot of disputing and facts brought up to me! Canada doesn’t want any more liberals.

    • Tom Bannigan

      Well you have not been reading, typical.
      I sat and watched a woman try to get into Canada once. I was there waiting for the ex wife to finish paper work for her and my boys. She was relocated there to marry the dipshit she left me for. I was driving my boys over, because it was more time with them. Well, the Canadians had this woman in tears. They would not allow her to just come over and stay with friends because she had no job and would not promise to be leaving at any time soon. I thought it was rather funny seeing how it was supposed to be so friendly up there. Then we continually got flipped off driving through the country.

  • TocksNedlog

    Canadians live by the attitude of “we”.
    Translation: Canadians don’t value individual liberty — and that’s the way I like it.


      Canadians never wanted ‘we’. We want our paychecks back, and to stop having to support lazy ass people!

      • TocksNedlog

        Yeah, not surprised that MM speaking on behalf of Canadians is like BO speaking on behalf of black people — they’re both full of shit.


          So true. Thank God for us!

    Soylent Green turn Moore into a cracker he could feed Canada for a week !!

  • Michael Rice

    Typical idiotic liberal. THe people who sit and rot waiting for health care in Canada tell him how bad it is and he seems to think he knows better.
    I thought the abundance of guns was the problem, Now, all of a sudden it is the culture. SO, Moore won’t be backing any more gun laws then, right?
    There is already free health care for poor people, it’s called Medicaid. Most ERs you can walk into, get seen quicker than going to a family doctor and when uyou get the bill, you tell them you can’t pay at that is that.

  • TocksNedlog

    Four hundred pounds of back-bacon.

    • v1cious

      Sheesh, do you guys have anything other than personal attacks? Dispute one thing he said.

  • Kate

    Riddle me this, Mr. Moore- why do so many Canadians in the Windsor area come over to Michigan to receive medical care, or even to work?

    I grew up in Metro Detroit and a lot of the hospitals employed nurses from Canada- because the pay and the demand were both greater here.

  • http://www.vatican.va/ Rulz

    “Canada. That’s my answer for pretty much everything except pipelines and baby seals. They also vote with a pencil and piece of paper. Duh.”

    Canada has a fairly conservative government and there has been a push to get stronger private sector health insurance going as well as repeal of so-called “gay marriage”, which I don’t think will survive the current demographic changes occurring.

    It has its flaws, but it’s heading in the right direction, which is a lot more than I can say for THIS country!


      So true.Canadians who work for a living want the option to have access to private care, with ‘real doctors’.Liberals shoved through gay marriage before they were run out.

  • Steve_J

    Ask the Indians or indigenous people, if you prefer, just who is included in the “we” Moore thinks Canadians are raised with.

  • orringtonmom (D)

    if the question is “if we were to shove that fat ass into a cannon, where should be point it?” then yes, canada is the answer. no, i’m sorry canada… we’ve never fired a weapon of mass stupidity at you, you’ve been a mighty fine neighbor. you really don’t deserve that… aim for cuba. cuba is the answer.

  • ZoriahShepard

    I love when Michael Moore gets schooled. Too bad his ears are too full of his own bullshit to listen.

  • http://www.facebook.com/jmcenanly James McEnanly

    Michael Moore’s ‘Canada’ is to the country that forms our northern Border what Camelot was to 6th Century Wales. There might be some similarities, but a lot of it is a work of imagination

  • Bob Smooper

    We can learn so much from Moore. He really is a fine man. Much better than that D’Souza bloke. I don’t trust him, is he from Iran?


      You really need to educate yourself on the facts.Moore’s Canada is certainly not the Canada I live in.

  • DrSamHerman

    And just where did he get the information that nobody in Canada filed for bankruptcy due to medical expenses last year? Source it Mikey, you obese malingerer.


    Don’t let Moore and Obama steal your liberty from you. You are our last hope.

  • J.N. Ashby

    So move there, you dick.

    Moore is a fat slob, probably has self inflicted diabetes & heart disease & he discussing the cost of healthcare…typical weirdo Liberal
