Tells me Australia is LIVIN LARGE. Wouldn't wipe my ass with their plastic shit but its supposedly like our money. I don't like it.
So CANADA you want to kiss China's ring and live like these Australian assholes or do you want to have integrity.
We don't need to tip in our country, we pay a decent wage to start with... well at least it is better than the system you have that if people don't get tipped they don't eat....

You seriously misunderstood what he was saying & you have your facts all mixed up as well. Australia does not halt production & we have no problem whatsoever selling ore, coal etc. to the Chinese.
of course it wont halt when australia needs it for domestic consumption ....it would just almost halt because no one worldwide wants to deal with people who cant supply coal on time due to floods or snow.u mean u USED to have no problem selling ore,coal etc to the chinese.

Article warns CANADA don't be like Australia selling your soul to China.
Wow what a temptation though. Australians are RICH. No recession. They travel and irritate the living shit out of people the worldover.
What article fails to mention HOWEVER is US-Canada relations STRONG. Our people respect each other.
Australia is prochina antiamerican nation. They don't have a problem shaking hands with devil china and stabbing US in back.
Canada DO THE RIGHT THING. Tell China to kiss it.
Australia is NOT anti US..for heavens sake they just encouraged the US to establish a troop base there to send a message to China to lay off! What world do you live in?

Australia does BUSINESS with China, which is what the US also does, and what Canada is TRYING to do! Australia is hardly anti USA having just encouraged the US to set up a troop rotation there and to offer to provide port facilities for US warships. NO MENTION of allowing CHINESE to do the same - what world do people live in who make these claims?

You must have been selective with your currency conversion dates - it's NOT par today ole bud! I would encourage you to learn more and say less. At current trend rates, the Australian economy ( with 50% LESS population than Canada) would seem to be capable of overtaking the Canadian economy within 5 years.

Australia's domestic consumption with 20 mill people is miniscule. It isn't about that but it is about supplying the rest of the world. EXAMPLE with new LNG fields coming on line Australia is set to jump form No 7 supplier in the world
to No 1 supplier. Did you know that manufactured aircraft AND spacecraft is actually shipped from made in Australia to the USA?? There is a lot that people who don't do research who just do not know.

Fact is , Australian coal is the best in the world.It produces more energy at a lower cost because of this fact, but if China doesn't want it no problem....we'll just leave it in the ground...we have plenty of other things besides mining to keep us busy........(lol)
