  1. https://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/economy/study-recommends-canada-remove-all-trade-tariffs/article18598773/ I'll side with professional economists on this one.

  2. It is happening to the country not just toronto. The left wing have some weird obsession with Islam and feel a need to hand the country over to them or the sikhs. In 20 yrs if this is not stopped ,we will not recognize this country at all. Islam needs to be on its own, not forcing its beliefs on other countries.

  3. Who cares, this government is a breath of fresh air and every day is more good news. Yes there are some tough decisions coming, but they will be about getting this province back on track. Not sucking up to the unions and hiring people for the sake of hiring people. I love it.

  4. Of course it is so. Lancastrians are predominantly white, after all. I have English pride, and Yorkshire pride, but no white pride. That said, I have no white guilt either, and if I have any white privilege, it's not my fault, so I don't care.

  5. ....Once again, I reiterate I have proposed my solution which is change must be initiated by people....I have said this several times now! Unfortunately, there is no solution and quick fix to your liking and you are not receptive to other people's opinion and suggestions. One wrong decision to achieve democracy will have far greater consequences. I guess if you had your family members or loved ones inside Iran you wouldn't want them to becomes pawns in the military strikes.... The Tudeh elements of MEK are the same cults that advocated communism known by Shah as 'reds' and islamists 'blac

  6. Free trade is a subset of Fair trade. All free trade is fair trade. Free trade is "we don't put trade barriers on you, and you don't put trade barriers on us". Pretty fair. Another form of fair trade is no trade. Out of the set of fair trade, free trade is the most desirable.

  7. How timely. We were just discussing this very thing at lunch today. One of my now deceased friends and director of one of our US companies was a key man (actually THE key man) for an international institution in Moscow when Garby opened things up. I got to vicariously experience Russia for the first 5 years of perestroika and glasnost and have some sense of just how badly Russians regarded Kruschev screwing around with the Crimea in the first place. It was seen as a sign of extreme weakness and betrayal to yield territory. I have also been for a while running all over Ukraine in those y

  8. My solution is to go forward with open market and trade. Look at the transformation in China. The more people are able to create connections with others through trade and other means, the less power these tyrannical governments will have. Iran has a large well-educated young population which is ready to burst onto the world stage. By not isolating Iran, Iranians will be able to begin trading all over the world and creating connections all around the world. When you isolate a country and its people through sanctions and through the market, then you create the perfect atmosphere for t

  9. OK, but Canada (and Mexico) get far more out of the relationship while contributing far less. Canada gets access to the largest market/economy in the world...but is less than California's in return. Canada can continue being not just a NATO deadbeat, but also a research and development deadbeat, worker productivity deadbeat, IP theft deadbeat, etc. Democracy in Canada seems to mean continuing the same old love-hate relationship....LOVE the American economy and innovation...HATE American foreign/domestic policies.

  10. FAIR Trade. Not free trade. Not sure what is so hard to understand about this concept. Let's give that a shot!

  12. None of the above. Pursue free trade, but do so reciprocally.

  14. The world seems to be getting more dangerous because of US Policy under Trump. So far in his term, he's threatened war against N Korea and now Venezuela, and he's called Canada a security risk. He's spent considerable time alienating the allies you want to contribute to his war efforts, while cozying up to those who we were previously allied against. I don't see how we can bolster our collective effort to save the world from war, unless it's all of us (Canada, Europe, China etc.) against the US and Russia.

  15. The only country that could invade Canada is the US. Like that is going to happen. We belong to NATO to protect Western Europe, not Canada or the US. Where was the US from 1939 - 1942? Where was the US from 1914 to 1917? This is not to say that when the US finally entered the WW2, they did not contribute, but it could be said the US was the dead-beat while we spent our blood and treasure. I don't agree with that, but is is one arguement. Why does the US need such a huge military? I agree with Bush-Cheney, the US should put a big chunk of it's Defence budget into healthcare. As

  16. The epitome of missing the point is two people arguing about which skin colour is to blame for world problems.
