i think Putin is very good at shutting up. Like some other leaders he's doesn't seem to need to comment on everybody's business and poke his stick in every mess that pops up around the world.

I was just reading on the local news that an abattoir and meat processing plant here in town is exporting 1-2 tons of meat per week to Russia. Or they were until yesterday. It's not just manufacturers, but so many small logistics companies with a handful of trucks that operate between Finland and Russia. It's going to hurt bad, I don't know if people realize it yet. The govt is of course saying the sanctions are necessary.

The consequences were very predictable so I can't believe they didn't expect this. 13.gif

Well, I don't know what the Finnish government is planning (or has planned, if anything), but our Canadian government has already set the wheels in motion to export more resources to like-minded countries.

Quote:“The steps Canada has taken have not been made without careful consideration of their potential impact on Canadian business interests abroad and at home,” said press secretary Adam Hodge in an email to Global News. “Sustained, strong and co-ordinated action among like-minded countries is the best way to ensure that our actions have the maximum impact on the Putin regime.”

I guess he had a lot of experience keeping his lips sealed and his eyes closed as well and still now he only sees what he wants to see for when he was a lieutenant colonel in the russian kgb while beating and torturing people he had to be very careful not to get any of their spraying blood spurting into his mouth and eyes...

Yes US, they're already working on things to minimize the damage.

I know from local news that our meat processing plant is having a Chinese delegation over within a few weeks. They're already exporting to Canada and are hoping to increase that. Isn't it lovely, now we can eat each other's bacon. damned.gif

But they're also finding an upside to this crap lmao.gif

Business expert predicts panic buying in Russian stores following the Kremlin’s counter-sanctions on EU and US food products, arguing that wealthier consumers are now more likely to make shopping trips across the border.

Wasn't that in response to Russian troops doubling at the eastern border?

I can't imagine why Canada would get involved. Ukraine is not a NATO member, this will only escalate tensions.

It appears that Canada like other like-minded countries won't just sit idly by and watch, just as the U.S. is now dropping water/food/medical aid to the non-Islamic people hold up on a mountain facing certain death by either staying there or making their way down the mountain.
