You are on your own with the Harper Government

People are starting to realize the conservative government is not reaching out to help people as they expect. A Canadian man convicted in a perhaps corrupt country (Indonesia) yet the Canadian government won't intervene to make them aware they are concerned. Not interfering, but making sure Jakarta realizes they are being watched.

The US government has done more.

So now people realize they are on their own.  Locked up abroad? Your problem. No job? Not their job.  Crumbling infrastructure? Patch it yourself.

If it involves bombing someone they will spare no expense. But if it's a normal responsibility they are always finding ways to not do their job.

This is a very mean spirited form of national identity.  When most Canadians will naturally roll up their sleeves and help without question.  This is a stark contrast.
