Many Canadians are giddy at the prospect that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle could be moving to Canada, injecting some razzle dazzle to the sprawling, bone-chillingly cold country. https://t.co/3HH575a6EK— New York Times World (@nytimesworld) January 11, 2020
For decades, if not a century+, Canada has provided protection for eminent persons visiting Canada. Ex-US Presidents, European royalty, etc. The political right either has amnesia or thinks Harry and Meghan are a great distraction from their boring leadership contest. #cdnpoli— Diane Marie (@DianeMariePosts) January 13, 2020

I like the fact that marrying a hard working black woman gave Harry the stones to get off the dole and work.— Blahblah, something holiday, Cipher (@snarkylicious) January 8, 2020

Well, the British papers uniformly dunned Corbyn as an anti-Semite and thus enabled a sociopath to be elected as PM. No wonder Harry wants out. I was born in England and cannot believe the BS that the place has become. It took five years back in the early '60s before even a Brit immigrant could apply to be a Canadian citizen, and then you recite a pledge of allegiance to the Queen, which was superfluous in my family's case and cause of much mirth even for the County Registrar in those days before Citizenship Court.
As for Harry and Meghan, meh. The New York Times World knows bugger all about Canada, like all Americans. They have no idea we have right wing governments in most provinces and call us socialists. Just as uninformed as in my youth. Standing in the lineup at Expo 67 venues, Americans complained of the heat, only 50 miles from the US border and clueless about climate or geography. So who cares what they think? I don't.
In my out and abouting this past weekend, not a soul brought up Harry and Meghan. I suppose if they decide to move here, it'll be like Conrad Black back from prison. Moved to the front of the immigration lineup and throw away the rulebook. Special treatment all the way while dumb as hedgehog Brit paparazzi haunt their new backyard for candid shots to emblazon on the front pages of the Sun and the Mirror.

My own feeling is that the tabs won't bother to stalk Harry and Meghan anymore - they are too cheap to send anyone here over on a regular basis. I hope the Royals will quietly disappear into a quiet Canadian life in some upscale gated neighbourhood, while Meghan supports the family doing Disney voiceovers and American TV guestshots.
