Yeah, it just seems blatantly bizarre that the Harper government is going out of their way to have the nation not be involved with the IBE and expo's in general in any shape or form.

And as for the US..... Well they kind of have less of an excuse XD Since their economy is ten times as big (so membership is like a microscopic drop in a tanker), and they don't have to bid for hosting a world expo. The Economics excuse of not holding membership falls flat on its face since it's entirely optional if you want to host the world expo.
