  1. The Liberals have been imposing carbon tax on all provinces, despite push-back from several Premiers, who says that the feds have no business imposing this on their province! As a rebuttal, how many times have I heard Catherine Mckenna - the Minister of Environment and Climate Change - say on tv.... ....."CLIMATE CHANGE KNOWS NO BORDERS!" well, duh? Obviously, THIS climate change, does respect borders!

  4. I agree, I do think they should do it and I don't know why it never happened, even after they received a settlement in 1985 from the Feds and the Company that bought out the pulp and Paper Company; why at that time it was never removed from the water. Trudeau did promised to act on it but never did and of course chose to belittle a protester and of course the Ontario Liberals promised to act on it, but never did. I don't know why it was never done.

  8. JWR herself said no laws were broken by the Libs. Was the pressure from the PMO inappropriate? Yes. Was JWR inappropriate in her attempt to make a mountain out of a molehill with this whole drawn out and very public ordeal? Yes. JWR referenced "speaking truth to power" and the "Saturday Night Massacre", a reference to Watergate. What was she playing at? She turned impropriety into a major scandal that will likely turn the leadership of the country over to the Conservatives. Trudeau had to let her and Philpotts go. The caucus are worried about their employment and wanted them out. Wha

  13. Nobody has said that the U.S. is the same as China, but clearly there are parallels that Canada has chosen to ignore for economic survival, and that includes capital punishment. It is because of Canada's perceived safety with 75% exports going to the USA, American capital investment, and post WW2 frameworks that some righteous Canadian leaders think they can take on China for "human rights violations". Well guess what, that all changes when the United States will no longer have your back on such matters because it also has to choose nation state interests over virtue signaling. The

  14. Obviously she couldn't stay after inappropriately secretly recording her colleagues' phone calls and prodding them to say things that ultimately proved to be a whole lot of nothing. If the CPC/Liberal roles in this scandal were switched, the liberals would be all aghast as the conservatives here are, and the conservatives would be spouting how DPAs help protect Canadian jobs and are standard practice in the world and how it just shows how the liberals are anti-business. In other words, political hacks and shills are annoying.

  16. I think the party can handle it. And if they air it out, then we can work to fix whatever is wrong. But the way Trudeau is doing it is really hurting his standing among Canadians, and among the Liberal Party. Trudeau is the one that cannot handle the dissent. It does in fact look like a cover up from the government that they allowed SNC to get away with LOTS of corruption and blackmail. Not just here in Canada, but as we have seen , abroad in places like Libya. Trudeau needs to go. And not just from the PM's office, he needs to be removed from the Liberal party as well.

  17. A lot of people don't realize that China also has a "Never Again" attitude about loss of sovereignty, invasion, and occupation that stems from Japanese imperialism and civil war between the nationalists and communists (Stalin actually supported the nationalists in quirky pre-WW2 alignments). Even as a backward nation, China was very important in the Pacific theatre as it engaged and tied up Japanese resources. Over 14 million Chinese nationals died. The UN found this out during the Korean War. Fast forward to today.....China is never going to let that happen again.

  18. JWR and Canadian talking heads have made reference to this being a "Saturday Night Massacre", pointing to what happened with Nixon and his AG staff during the Watergate scandal in October, 1973. I don't know if JWR has any legal recourse, but what she most certainly doesn't have is backup from her caucus, as they fear for their MP jobs as well should any hint of "disloyalty" and loss of "trust" be seen by Justin Trudeau. Also interesting that such parallels would be drawn to something that happened almost 50 years ago. This is just another example of how much unchecked power a Canadi

  21. Don't fool yourself....the United States (government) spies on every nation, allied or not, and has been doing so far longer than China. If challenging your anti-China (and anti-American) biases doesn't meet your approval, then go back to hiding in the sand (ignore).

  22. China throws people into prison by the hundreds of thousands for being the member of the wrong ethnic group. It executes people for protesting against Tibet, or the slaughter in Tienanmen square. It throws people into labour camps for talking about Democracy. And you want to compare that to the US putting people in prison for terrorism? Get the f**k out of here.

I think egghead hit the nail on the head, to many Canadians have picked their parties long ago, and regardless of who is at the helm they will recklessly vote the way they have always....On the other hand a lot of liberals still can not see what Justin and company have done nothing wrong...everything is coming up rainbows and unicorns...Canada has gone a long time since a charismatic , knowledgeable leader showed up one that knows how to govern, when to act in the best interest of the country, and when to act on popular ideas. If Canadians can not pick the best man for the job, then they fall

  27. The Liberal MPs are out in full force, trying to make it so that it's Raybould who's got no principle to stand on (Wayne Easter said that).....for secretly recording that conversation. Did Wayne even stop to ponder why Raybould was driven to that extent? One male MP (can't recall his name) said that, "that's normal conversation between them." How conveniently they try to blurry the point: it's not normal because Raybould was the Justice Minister. They shouldn't be having that kind of conversation. "She shouldn't have recorded that. It's an erosion of trust," t

I THINK (no real measure) the people have finally seen the JWR and Phil are the good guys (OK, gals, but this is a politically correct administration, so I can't be sexist or even gender biased) and the Liberal buffoons are showing their true colours.

  30. How dare you reduce people to their race. People are people and deserve the same level of services and taxation across the board. Reparations to level the playing field for past wrongs is one thing, and difficult enough. Permanent dependence is a form of enslavement because it kills any sense of personal investment and control Autonomy is psychologically healthy.

  31. Aboriginals already HAVE their own country: Canada. What they need is to be treated equally, not at some level of very, very special privilege. Obligations for wrongdoing are legitimate - but only for those actually wronged. I believe we owe their descendants absolutely nothing that every other Canadian is not also able to access. Race based anything is not only highly discriminatory, it is also just plain wrong.

  35. That is what I have been asking. You earlier suggestion doesn't account for the billions which have gone towards indigenes. BTW they aren't indigenes, the came from Asia. Every north american "native" has Asian DNA. If they can be indigenes just for being born here, so can everyone else.

  36. Open your eyes. They have been given billions and there still is many without clean water. Why do natives live in extreme poverty while right up the road the chief living in a mansion driving a caddy. Telling everyone who will listen how the white man is fucking them. Liberals are so goddamn blind when it comes to these votes. Well guess what, the natives will not be backing trudeau this time. He lied to them even more then other governments.

  37. You literally have no idea what you are saying. This is not Turkey where we slaughter our minorities, it is a fantastically wealthy country where we give our aboriginal population huge privileges that are not available to the tax paying population. We are not trying to kill them off (nor has any European immigrant) we are trying to get them off their privileged ass to stand on their own two feet as equals.

  41. Far, far more money has been paid out by IAF in whatever name they have used for every status Indian in this country to live in the very lap of luxury. We did a study of that once, and found (25 years ago) that about $22k a year was budgeted to IAF for every man, woman and child in Canada with a treaty number. BUT: maybe 20% of that money ever saw a living, breathing aboriginal - and then the vast majority of what did ended up going sideways at the band council level. The big bux go to those "consultants" who are in favour of the IAF bureaucrats - and you can guess just what it takes to buy

  42. I don’t think that assistance to Indigenous peoples should be a permanent arrangement. It should have a scale-back mechanism that kicks in once a self-sustainability plan is in place, gradually reducing to zero as employment and resource development improves. This is what should happen. What do I actually think will happen? Taxpayers continue to fund Indigenous affairs such that many Indigenous peoples don’t have an incentive to work in and contribute to the wider economy or even the local Indigenous economy. Those who leave the reserve tend to be more successful. There are some succ

  43. The issue here is one of "where did/does the money go?" Since the Indian Act was first brought in 10's of billions of dollars have been spent on the indigenes. Enough so that not one single person should be without good housing, indoor plumbing, potable water. Yet many of these immigrants from Asia live in squalor. So, where has the money gone? One might be forgiven for wondering about offshore accounts in the name of certain bureaucrats and politicians. Furthermore, why will the media not investigate this? I have put this to a number of high profile so-called investigative reporter over the y

  44. China, Huawei, are currently being dealt with under Trump. Canada would do well to follow the US model. It doesn't help to complain about unfairness of the illegal Chinese business deals when our own PM is covering up for similar things. But the specific issue is what he did in regards to interference, under Canadian law. This has nothing to do with China.

  45. See that’s where I get off the inquisition boat. There are ways to penalize the guilty parties without hurting thousands of innocent workers and deep sixing the company. So why not consider those options? It makes me wonder what other points of principle JWR would make in a position of authority and who would pay the price.

  46. Why don’t you recommend that one or both of them run for the party leadership and see where it goes? What a joke. Party politics is like a game of Hearts: Don’t start plotting and undermining the party leadership unless you really think you can get all the hearts and total control. I actually think JWR thinks or thought she could do this. Again, let the party membership decide and then let the country decide. My guess is that the Libs are gone in the next election. Scheer should at least send JWR a thank you card.
