There are many websites on the World Wide Web that deal with preparedness and survival. However, most of them stem from the United States, and as such, aren’t equipped to meet the needs of the average Canadian.
As much as we love our neighbours to the south, we are surprisingly different. Not just in our laws, but in our social mores, cultures, and general outlook on life. Some of the stereotypes about Canadians are true to some degree. Generally, we are more reserved, quieter in our patriotism and, although there are enough rifles in Canada that everyone of us could have one, we are much less inclined toward carrying firearms. For good or for bad, that’s the way we generally are.
All those things make the prospect of being prepared a slightly different process for us. I hope to address some of these different needs and attitudes and help Canadians interested in preparedness and modern survivalism to prepare for life, no matter what happens.
I am not a guru of preparedness, but I think my life can definitely serve as a caution to those who aren’t prepared! I have served in our military, grew up in a military family, have a family, lived in the east and the west, large cities and small hamlets. I work with electronics, computers, electrical systems, solar systems and natural gas production. I’ll share what I have learned with you, if you’ll share what you have learned with others here.
I am not a tin-hatter! Okay, I’m a little bit of a tin-hatter. I prefer to not think of myself as paranoid, just well informed. In all seriousness, I see the same problems in the world that you see. Nothing less, nothing more. But we’ll still have some fun with the conspiracy world here!
If you are one of our American cousins, I strongly recommend going to Jack Spirko’s site TheSurvivalPodcast.com. I personally recommend his podcasts and his site and I endorse him by being a supporting member of his site. Credit where due, as befits a Canadian, Jack is my inspiration to create CanadaPrepared.com. If a lot of what I am doing seems to be a lot like what Jack is doing, it is not a coincidence. What he does, works. I want to help Canadians prepare for anything, so I’m going to do what is already proven to work to get that message out to you. Jack, if you read this, I hope you approve.
Thanks for dropping by. I hope you enjoy the scuttlebutt.
