Well, it’s an interesting theory. But back in the real world, Canadians and others are calling B.S.

First, the poverty rate in Canada is nowhere near 1 percent.

Second, many Canadians do in fact lock their doors.

Crime is a serious problem in Vancouver:

https://twitter.com/GregVancouver/status/308313662240722944

From the linked article:

A new report has given Vancouver a dubious honour: the highest break-in rate of all major Canadian and American cities, nearly four times that of New York City.

Last year, Vancouver recorded more than 1,100 break-ins per 100,000 residents while New York City had just over 300.

The numbers are contained in the annual report by the B.C. Progress Board, which showed Vancouver had the second-highest combined violent and property crime rate among all major cities in Canada and the United States.

As for the notion that poverty causes crime (an argument frequently put forth by the Left), it is not supported by empirical data.

In short, Moore has no idea what he is talking about.

https://twitter.com/brady_cremeens/status/308313284354908160

Update:

Moore now admits he was wrong about pretty much everything.

He corrects his incorrect tweet about the poverty rate:

He acknowledges that crime is a problem in Canada:

And he notes that Canadians do lock their doors:

It’s all Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s fault, of course, which doesn’t really explain why so many Canadians keep electing Conservatives.

    A person has to look long and hard to find anyone in the United States living in desperate poverty.

    • Catchance

      Exactly. I volunteer in a pregnancy care center, where everything we offer (pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, parenting classes, etc.) is free. Our funding comes from local people, businesses, and churches…no government funding. The young women come in have no money and need diapers/clothing/food for their babies. But they all have cell phones; many have iPads, tattoos, expensive running shoes, hair braiding/extensions, and often they will come by taxi (because it’s too difficult to take the time to come by bus). They also wouldn’t dream of living without a TV or the internet.

      (On an unrelated matter, we have a Planned Parenthood facility across the street, that does charge for a pregnancy test ($15) and an ultrasound ($250) unless the client buys an abortion, in which case those items are included in the fee.)

    magically not be poor anymore and then both countries will have no

          Irish Girl, as far as I know, our pot laws are anything but liberal.

        And, if racist reports from certain right-wing quarters are to be believed, Toronto also hosts a growing number of Mohammedan-ruled “No Infidels Allowed” neighborhoods.

    I’m Canadian+usually agree w/u, but don’t believe that stat. +most Canadians do lock their doors. We just dont worry abt being shot

    Nor do the criminals, Ryan, and that’s why you are being robbed. I don’t know the Canadian stats but I know burglary is rampant in the UK, and 80+ % happens when the occupants are home, as opposed to 15% in America. When hoodlums do break into house in the UK, usually by kicking down doors designed to be kicked down for the convenience of the government, the victims are usually beaten in addition to being robbed. Stupid, fat, old, rich (and out of touch), white liberal a**hole.

    • http://www.black-and-right.com/ IceColdTroll

      I’m not going to look up the charts & stats right now — they’re all on Wikipedia anyway — a LOT of the countries with all those wonderful gun control laws STILL have murder rates –YES, MURDER RATES — higher than the US.

    By the way, did anybody tell the fat slob that Canada has a conservative government that recently loosened restrictions on gun ownership? Even their Liberals aren’t always in Moore’s territory – Justin Trudeau certainly doesn’t see eye to eye with the environmentalists over energy policy. Many of our libs and Dems would have a home only in the NDP – a hodgepodge party of moonbats and Quebec separatists.

    Also that first tweet of his sounds all too like something his buddies at MSNBC would call a racist dog whistle if it were uttered by anybody else.

  • RightThinking1

    I am somewhat convinced that Moore and most of Hollywood/Celebrities spew this stuff to earn themselves indulgences.

    Canada’s population below poverty is just under 10% (http://www.indexmundi.com/g/g.aspx?v=69&c=ca&l=en) The rate shot down from just under 16% in 2008 to 2012 – Conservative government came in power in 2008.

    America’s population below poverty is just over 15% (http://www.indexmundi.com/g/g.aspx?v=69&c=us&l=en) Increase from 12% has been occurring since 2004 (continued after 2008).

    Not only are Moore’s stats wrong, but during the first term of George W. Bush (when we were apparently all paranoid), poverty rates were LOWER in America than in Canada. Since 2008, when Conservatives came to power in Canada, that switched. Whoops.

    Michael Moore fancies himself as an intellectual but at the very core, he is nothing more than a carnival barker with an elementary grasp of crime and its root causes. Because he makes a documentary of Columbine, now he’s the “go to” guy on all issues related to poverty, crime, guns, wealth, etc?

    Let me throw you a bone Moore….the root of most crime isn’t people with money…it’s people who lack of it.

    You don’t see many Aston Martins in Detroit pawn shop parking lots and there are very few convenience store robberies involving men wearing London Fog trench coats.

    You bemoan America as if the country itself is somehow preventing its own from being successful but every child eventually develops free will and with each and every imbecilic tweet of yours, you manage to secure your reputation as a liberal apologist who look at criminals and want to blame their crimes on Americans working 80-hrs a week to give their kids a better life than they had themselves.

    Lack of success is always someone else’s fault. The problems of this country are always someone else’s fault. You live in a country that celebrates success but you have this Pavlovian paranoia of it. Perhaps it’s because you know if your party’s base suddenly all became financially successful, who could you sell your malcontent to?

    It must suck to have to wake up each morning with the goal of ignoring the fruits of your country in order to pimp its shortcomings.

    Congrats…with this latest Twitter tirade leveled against your own country, you’ve cemented yourself as the Democratic Debbie Downer.

    Sent off to Moore: @MMFlint You have to be one of the most obtuse and ill informed socialist cretins in the US. Crime lowest since 72 & poverty down in Canada. http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/story/2012/07/24/crime-stats-canada.html

    My mother came from Canada, she was removed from her home and placed in a convent by the Canadian Government and Catholic church during WW2 while her father fought for Canada. He was wounded and the church and government did not release her from the convent until she was 18, her father was wounded and didn’t get home for years after the war. So M. Moore every perfection you think you see has imperfections.

      your story makes no sense – none! Why would she have been removed from her home and placed in a convent?

      Your story has more holes than a sieve.

      • ricsands

        Well she’s dead now so most of what I know came from my father. But I have heard that the Canadian Government and Catholic Church did this to make it easier for her mother to handle raising her much older brother, you have to remember this was during WW2 and the remnants of the great depression.. But the story is either true or my father was a liar. Your choice, oh and he’s dead too.

        The American government was doing basically the same thing to the American Indian tribes up until the 1960’s so why is this so unbelievable?

    And just what is the percentage of minorities in Canada, dipshit? I believe that the largest minority are of Chinese origin. What is the percentage of those of African origin?

    Let’s start with Canadas health system:
    Back in the early 90’s my parents could afford to pay for a private clinic, c-section and generally great care.
    If you can’t afford it then tough shit- you are out of luck. Be sure your water doesn’t break in the hall.

    Does anybody even listen to this twit? I believe him as much as I believe Obama. Which is to say any time they open their mouths I think “here come the lies.” Liberals at best are just ignorant.

    Michael Moore opened his mouth and something stupid came out. How is this news?

    What a dipshit.

    Canada 35,002,447 October 2012 Official estimate

    United States 315,602,000 March 3, 2013 Official population clock

    Comparing the estimated population of each country, I’d say the USA is doing just fine.

    When I lived in Tucson, AZ the company I worked for used another company from Canada as a subcontractor. Every 9 months we would have a rotation of 15 workers from Canada come down for the project they helped with, during that time each one would joke about needing more time for there contribution. After a few weeks we would ask them if they liked our personalities that much, their answer, “No, well yes, but we can carry a gun and get healthcare without waiting on a list”. @Michael Moore paints a rosy picture that doesn’t exist according to the Canadians I know/knew.
