It doesn't surprise me that people don't think Canada has internet and they assume you will be cut off from social media.
You would not believe some of the questions/comments I heard while living in the US. You would think Canadians ere living in the 1700s, had no electricity or running water, no modern electronics, our country was a frozen wasteland 100% of the year and we had no concept of holidays like Christmas, Mothers' Day etc....🤦

Media coverage of Republicans stampeding to NYC to attack Trump's trial as illegit is marred by euphemism. This isn't just "currying favor" w Trump or "expressing loyalty" or auditioning to be his VP. It's placing Trump over rule of law

Rs are attacking judge, witnesses, prosecutors & trial as illegitimate. This isn't just helping Trump evade the gag order. The point is also to display in spectacle form that their fealty is to him over the rules that make the system function

He won an Emmy in 1987 for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or a Special for his role Sworn to Silence, but was nominated six times.

"a lot of produce doesn’t make it to grocery store shelves when fruits and vegetables are considered to be misshapen, not the right size or slightly damaged.
.... the problem of oversupply, when too much of one food item is grown or distributed and doesn’t match market demand"- it is dumped!!

All I have to say to you is this,
With Biden you can protest freely and it's likely he will change his mind. He has already paused arms.
With Trump- you see what you are facing. And, seriously, I doubt he will simply send you into exile--he would consider that a waste of money.
Read up on history. What is the record of dictators when faced with civil unrest?
Look at Hitler, he didn't exile people. Trump has made it clear he likes violence.
