1.     Summary and Background

As a result of the change in government in the United States, the Government of Canada (GoC) finds it necessary to take unusual measures to protect its frontier with the U.S. from incursions by U.S. citizens who:

  • Espouse similar views to the new President-elect
  • Are members of the National Rifle Association
  • Are named “Newt”

To this end, the GoC is requesting Proposals from qualified Canadian firms to construct two (2) separate walls along its borders.

2.     Proposal Guidelines

This Request for Proposal represents the requirements for an open and competitive process. Proposals will be accepted until 11:59 pm EST January 31, 2017.  Any proposals received after this date and time will be returned to the sender.  All proposals must be signed by an official agent or representative of the company submitting the proposal.

If the organization submitting a proposal must outsource or contract any work to meet the requirements contained herein, this must be clearly stated in the proposal. Additionally, all costs included in proposals must be all-inclusive to include any outsourced or contracted work.  Any proposals which call for outsourcing or contracting work must include a name and description of the organizations being contracted.

All costs must be itemized to include an explanation of all fees and costs.

Contract terms and conditions will be negotiated upon selection of the winning bidder for this RFP. All contractual terms and conditions will be subject to review by Ace Consulting legal department and will include scope, budget, schedule, and other necessary items pertaining to the project.

3.     Project Purpose and Description

The purpose of this project is as follows:

To build a Wall to keep out undesirable U.S. citizens in order to prevent them from spreading their hate, misogynistic, gun-happy and racist ideas north of the border (or east, in the case of Alaska).

Project Description:

The Government of Canada is looking for interested and qualified parties to submit a comprehensive and costed proposal to build two walls – total length of 6,786 kilometre –  along the borders of Canada and the United States. One along its southern contiguous border and one along the border with the State of Alaska.

Specifications.

  1. Wall must be constructed of materials that are long lasting, sustainable and durable.
  2. Height – no less than 8 metres at any point along the length of the wall.
  3. Thickness – no less than 1 metre.
  4. Access points – one every 100 kilometres. Design of access points must include provisions for guard station and passport, visa and security check facilities.

 4.     Project Scope

The scope of this project includes all design, development, building and quality testing, of Canada’s new Wall.

The selected bidder will be responsible for planning and conducting a thorough environmental and hydrogeological study of the immediate area where the Wall will be located. However, the GoC is committed to carry forward with this project even if Red-tailed hawks and rare tortoises are found nesting on the sites. All easements from First Nation Communities, municipalities, utilities and private landowners have already been obtained by the GoC (given the reason for the Wall, this process was remarkable quick and simple). 

5.     Request for Proposal and Project Timeline

Key dates:

  1. RFPs must be received at the date above by 11:59 pm, January 31, EST
  2. RFPs will be assessed by April 1, 2017 and successful proposal submission will be announced the following day.
  3. Construction must begin by November 8, 2017 and must conclude by November 8, 2019

    “Request for Proposal (RFP) Canada Wall Project”

    Prevention is a better route..

    Do what will make it so walls aren’t needed…

    Create it in this thread.. one step at a time, till it works…

    Show me your ideas.. and I’ll kick them up a few rungs…

  2. DonaldJ says:

    Yo trashy.. is that what you meant by ‘raising the board’..?

    There be hundreds more board levels..
    Does humanity have any timeframe when it might be ready to embrace some reality..?

  3. rww says:

    You forgot to include the provision

    As per rules established by the new President of the United States all costs of border walls will be borne by the state south of the border wall.

    The winning bid will be required to send all bills to the Government of the United States, or alternatively to the Trump Corporation.

  4. DonaldJ says:

    Mr. Trump.. If you do what you publicized you will do to the economy, it will kill the global economy, by killing and extincting Money…
    We don’t want you to destroy all that humanity has worked for these past few millennium.. Many of us rely on religion’s money invention to survive.. We don’t want to die.. We want to live life.. We live here too.. This is our world too.. We like it how it is, and we would like things to only evolve to the better, not into massive progressive meticulous global destruction and fall..

    Our world’s leadership is mostly coke-heads.. They can’t think.. They can’t process thought.. All they’ve got left of thinking and the mind and spirit, is a hand-full of basic emotions, and reactions to emotion, and to regurgitate predetermined fear and glory based opinions.. The sensitive people of humanity feels it like you’re bunch is literally/actually ‘pulling us into hell’.. We do Not want to go to hell sir.. With all due respect, You’re Fired Sir…

    OR.. Be a good king for humanity.. Learn all about love.. Show us love, and we will reciprocate, loving you more than you can handle dear brother..
    Show us that much love, and we will build exquisite luxurious palaces all around the world to gift to you, to surprise you with, to be your servants your majesty…

    This can be your life.. (If you make a TV show on this theme, it’s my call and coin.. pay for the theme.. themes aren’t free ya know..) How much does an ounce of honesty weigh, in troy ounces..?

    OR.. Quoting the News: “What happens when Trump’s careless elitist bullish policies hit the most vulnerable American and global consumers?”..

    _____________________________________________________

    Off the top, the answer is just too easy..

    Consumers stop buying.. Businesses stop getting the consumers money.. Businesses can’t pay their bills, and they and their support go bankrupt.. Business people get sick and die and/or suicide.. The whole retail industry becomes a buyers market, where prices must drop or items just don’t sell, and become obsolete and/or rot on the shelves…
    In other words, the American economy collapses, and the Poor initiate and implement Barter to survive and to live, while money, money caches, bank accounts, and money handling, all progressively dry-up as Money dies and goes extinct.. All because of one man’s silly little game of thrones and gold…

    The irony of it is that Trump will literally kill Money globally in trying to save and make a little money for himself, for his games, and for his money-hungry associates..

    After a couple decade of global wars, the fragile unstable global economy just needs Trump’s foolish little push to drive the whole global economy mess right over the edge.. Trump doesn’t seem to see and feel it probably because he has always had more than enough of everything, high-end.. He doesn’t know what it’s like to have to go cold, hungry, sick, and scorned, just because you don’t have enough basic money to survive and be well and be liked.. He doesn’t know the reality hurt-plague 3/4’s of the human race lives in, on this dying little world.. He’s an almighty elitist with a full tummy and satisfied spiteful grin.. He’ll try to run America for the wealthy and the elitists, and will ruin America and the world for poor people and for all humanity, and all life..

    We watched Trump’s antics on TV during the campaign.. “There isn’t any love in that guy, only hate”, is what many Americans are saying..
    Americans are saying in internet blogs “the devil just took America”.. I wager that incidence of American and global suicides will begin to skyrocket, soon after Trump begins to murder Money globally, and that America’s new civil war will probably start to begin to rebirth and flare-up some time next week.. He doesn’t seem to care about the billions of lives he’ll be hurting, crushing, and destroying, in playing his kill the global economy bored-game.. I think it was a big mistake electing Trump.. I think he was just playing a joke.. We and you will wish you never voted for Trump’s little joke, nor even heard of Trump, and America will-so have its next civil war, and in the middle of it Trump will probably packup and run away and hide in South America in a secret safe quiet place on the eastern coast near Venezuela.. And some rogue American general loose-cannon will probably accidentally launch a couple of powerful cruises that a way, proving that political vandalism in the first world does not pay, and that being a true leader most definitely requires love, honesty, and keen thinking as job description prerequisite, and that big money always turns on its master the moment it can, like war and food-poisoning always does…

    This note seems to be an epitaph as much as it seems to be a seer’s forecast of things to come.. It’s probably both.. Condense it into less words for a fancydancy richman’s tombstone.. “I came, I saw, I conquered, I destroyed the whole world’s economy in a day of elitist fun”..

    _______________________________________

    It’s been only half a day since Trump was elected.. Stock markets all around the world are slowly crashing.. Money markets are failing.. Businesses are closing early, or just not opening.. People are freaking-out everywhere all around the world.. and now I’m seeing in the News, Americans are out in the streets in cities all across America in large numbers angrily protesting against Trump.. I never thought this would nor could happen.. Seems the American people aren’t gonna let that guy lead their nation into a disturbing economic hell, not even for a day, minute, nor a second.. President for a day, then maybe impeached, or just kicked out of America, or worse.. That can’t be fun.. Today IS SO the first hint of very start of the second installment of the prophesied rebirth of the American Civil War.. All hell is breaking loose in America right now.. Millions of Americans are very angry, and for good reason.. I wonder if Trump will get through it unscathed..? It’s gonna get much more weirder and more dangerous there.. Glad we aren’t there.. Lock up the southern and northern borders.. God save us from America.. Hide your daughters.. Bar the windows.. Buy, hire, and build protection.. Make condom usage be mandatory law for all Americans in Canada, with sexually active penises.. Less would be better…

    After the tea party, America got hooked on morphine in the wild west days..
    a way of life that holds only a dead-end.. Does humanity want to repair its damaged trajectory..? or is hell really your acceptable trajectory, path, and destination..? You’re on a bad road people.. I know how to steer us onto a better road.. A road that holds immortality as its trajectory and destination.. You choose.. heaven? or hell?

    Your ball your majesties..
