Following a failure to pass a budget vote in the Senate, a government shutdown is in effect as of 12.01am this Saturday the 20th of January.

“When a crappy old car grinds to a halt, sometimes it’s better not to sink any more into it.”
Instead, they are in favor of switching over to a Government that is less prone to breaking down.
“Canada has one that never seems to stop working so we’d prefer to use that.”
Though the shutdown affects non-essential federal agencies and workers, an overwhelming majority thinks Congress should go ahead and stop working as well to facilitate a quick transition to an all-Canuck administration.
“And President Trump should stop too, though I’m not sure how we’d know the difference”
