  1. I have to laugh at this post. Many years ago, we had just bought a new and quite expensive piece of equipment for our business, and my wife had been asking to think about a larger car for her as our 2 kids she hauled all over the place were becoming teens and were quite tall. We thought that we would look at a minivan because, what the heck, everyone else has one. Went to local Chrysler store and asked to see a loaded up AWD Grand Caravan - and they had one in off of lease with low miles. They gave it to us for weekend, and we left them telling that we would need to finance for a couple m

  3. While I don't agree with the anti-vaxers and the anti-Covid crowd, I still believe Canadians have freedom of speech. This guy Chris Sky has just been put on the no-fly list for being an anti-vaxer, anti-Covid protestor/speaker for exercising his right to freedom speech. The government appears to be shutting him down and preventing him from travel so he cannot go to protest rallies and speak. This while a convicted terrorist, who killed someone when he was fighting for al Qaida in Afghanistan, received 10.5 million dollars and an apology, is not on the no fly list and is free to fly. This is

  4. Now I don't feel competent to argue the science of climate change. But University of Ottawa Professor Ian Clark doesn't focus mainly on that but on the sheer physical impossibility of meeting the goals Trudeau has set with his "net zero" policy. That is, how many wind turbines and solar farms and nuclear power plants would it take, and where would the rare earths which go into the first two come from. Not to mention the cost. His conclusion is that it's not physically possible to build enough power stations to do it without going mass nuclear. And by mass he means forty new power plants with t

  8. And yet, Canada is begging for covid vaccines from other nations, including the U.S. and India, because it did not develop, test, or manufacture covid vaccine domestically, or maintain the capability to do so. Economics 101.

  9. It is little wonder that some Canadians are skeptical about getting a covid vaccine shot given the way that procurment was badly bungled by the Trudeau government, and the resulting desperation caused by supply shortages prompting health officials to stagger dosage intervals up to 16 weeks and even mixing vaccine types in Quebec. These vaccines were hastily approved for emergency use during the pandemic, and Canada was not even part of the phase testing trials for Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, AZ, or J&J. Not following the manufacturers recommended and approved dosing protocols logicall

  10. I don't think we can legally keep Canadians from entering. Nor do we need to. We CAN force them into real, supervised quarantine in safe facilities for fourteen days while they take repeated tests. We can limit those who are exempt from this. We can force even truck drivers crossing the US border to be tested. But we're not.

  24. Come on Aristedes. You post links to CNN and their flunkies who use anonymous sources for bold headlines and then just make nearly invisible retractions weeks or months later, if ever. Do you really consider a precious CNN link to be more useful than a comment from a person with thousands of posts here? Also, this wasn't hard to find Aristedes: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/safety/adverse-events.html . I just googled "covid vaccination deaths" and it was the top hit. I get that people need to post links with incredible claims that are hard to verif

  25. I can't buy into your tinfoil hat conspiracy theories, but you DO hit on one key point quite accurately Canada is stuck in the no-man's land between the "everything is business" neighbour to the South and Uncle Karl;s "means of production" all belonging "to the people. But, being in that position, we need to learn what should be business and what should be public and social service. Sick care and health care are two of those that really need to be seen for what they are (or SHOULD be) - social service. This is a unique opportunity, since we can look at what others have done and choose

  26. How can the federal government abuse public funds to the tune of $300 million to support the divisive and inflammatory "critical race theory" that most Canadians would never support? How did the Liberals become so compromised that they'll ignore the oppressive incarceration of Uighurs in China yet promulgate a controversial perspective from the U.S. context? This government is pathetic. They can't acquire vaccines, but they have no shortage of attention and public money for dubious causes. https://apple.news/AqH6OFAGsSwqJSklupc76Rg

  27. The Kyoto accord was 30 years ago (more or less). The above was the song and dance back then. You've had 30 years to make this idea make sense that China just needed to catch up. In the meantime we all would show them how it could be done. It was BS then and it's BS now. If China and India aren't cutting back nothing anybody else does would matter anyway. That's assuming you actually believe an apocalypse of too much nice weather is coming because your civilization got advanced.

  30. Global Affairs has always been a bastion of far left liberal ideology. This is the group which cheered Trudeau's arrival like groupies at a rock concert, so ecstatic were they to have someone 'like us'. There are few if any conservative types at that department. They wouldn't be hired, and if they were, accidentally, they wouldn't be promoted and would be frozen out.

  31. 1. It's "smoke and mirrors". 2. I guess you didn't realize that a pandemic has been going on for a year or so and people were desperate. 3. I guess you didn't know the FP is a conservative paper ? You are just this close to realizing you are out of step with the rest of Canada, and yet you call everyone else wrong. Here's a clue: NOBODY loves the Liberal party. Even in blood red Toronto they complain about him, but the alternatives aren't very good. Let's see what O'Toole can do. I have hope, but the conservative true believers seem to have given up on him.

You can believe what you want, but we both know that I am 100% correct in saying that their track record is o-fer. FYI climate alarmism is one of the oldest scams known to man.

  34. The problem that the Conservatives face is that the MSM is a bunch of radicalized socialists who will obliterate the Conservatives for forgetting to dot an i or cross a t, while the PM can wear blackface and call the Japanese ambassador Chinese all day long. The PCs have to play the game the way the media lets them play it or they are finished. I was really hoping that Dr Lewis would win the leadership of the Conservatives because she's the only person in the party right now who can say intelligent, meaningful things without being branded as a racist Nazi slaveowner by the CBC and CTV.

  36. A wide segment of the public has weakened and become used to government handouts. While much support was needed early on, the Trudeau government seems to want to make mass welfare permanent rather than take on the important and courageous task of transitioning the public back to work. In the end it has to pay off for people to bother putting away the weed and collecting the pogey. My biggest problem with this government is they don't make hard and careful choices. They just borrow and spend and saddle future generations with debt. They rely on immigration to grow the tax base (vastly incr

If you cut the hair of 10,000 people, how does that translate into your ability to buy a car that was made in Japan, Cougar? Do you think that communist and socialist countries get by without a form of currency? Do you think that the lea

  45. Adding a political aggravator to a no-fly list because you don't like his speech is a pretty serious thing to do. If this is why he was on the no-fly list this should be a front-page national story. Maybe there's more to him than we know.

  48. Seems you don't understand what freedom of expression in the Charter of Rights means and you don't understand that governments don't get involved in using the full power, lawyers, and resources of government to shut down a citizen's freedom of speech because they don't like his views. Using the power of state to control speech or silence citizens is Marxist or Communist style of government.
