    ...then ridings would  not pick their own MP's....been there done that with you experts on reform...you are never happy until someone you vote for has the most seats....since your boy Trudeau won enjoy...you know why he won... 

    I have never shown any support for Trudeau, never liked him and I have never voted for him.

    Our 'democracy' is already fairly tenuous.

    The party already has too much control over which candidates get accepted. In addition to having unelected people determine who is acceptable and who is not, to run in the nomination process, the party can also ignore the internal election, and simply appoint someone to run in the riding.

    That's an interesting thought.

    The whole purpose of PR in the Canadian context is as another weapon to be used against the west.

    PR is the imperative of the leftists in the east, because it would ensure that the western bloc could never achieve a majority again over the eastern bloc.

    It's not healthy to be so paranoid and negative.

    PR is a way to make each vote equal.

    What do you suggest we should have? Are you even in favour of voting? What makes you happy Dougie?

    Bigot means a person who is intolerant of other people's opinions, so technically, you're the bigot.

    Bigot - a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices especially : one who regards or treats the members of a group (such as a racial or ethnic group) with hatred and intolerance.

    Argus is a bigot.

    So you can't even challenge the factual basis of my statement. You can't point out exactly who it's racist to. But you're still gonna throw in that old "R-word" because that's all you got.

    There is no factual basis in calling a group of people goat herders, you bigot.

    So it has nothing to do with PPC. Extreme elements are not even a large portion of PPC voters, the media just tries to smear the PPC by finding the obvious outliers and pretending they are the base of the party and pretending real conservatives are just "White Supremacist Nazi's". You are falling for obvious propaganda and projecting the views of vocal minorities on the PPC.

    How do you know what the percentage of 'extreme elements' are?

    Two of the most vocal supporters of PPC on this forum are racist and bigoted: Argus and taxme.

    PPC did split the vote and gave a riding to the Liberals  in at least two ridings I know of.  In  Richmond Hill. the difference was 112 votes with PPC receiving 507 votes.  Also Kitchener Conestoga, -  783 votes for PPC. Harold Albrecht lost by 273.

     I have read elsewhere that the PPC actually cost the CPC 8 seats which would have resulted in a much weaker Liberal minority.    

    You're reaching really hard. The PPC was a non-factor.

    The problem for Bernier is that any new good ideas that the PPC might have, including on immigration, are overshadowed by a handful of extreme elements.  

    Like this?

    Muslims are like communists. They both can never be trusted in what they say. They will both lie to your face without any hesitation and when your back is turned towards them they will give you the finger.

    Or this?

    Oh yes, if only we facilitated them more, we'd have no drug filled slums full of an "underclass" no ethnic street gangs, no drive-bys, no growing squalor and poverty! It's all our fault for not properly aclimating the goat herders the federal government lets in!

    I despise Canada, but contempt is not anger, you're the one whose angry

    because you can't realize your dreams and schemes in a fake country with no national interest and no unity.

    I've already realized my dreams, I already won the life lottery, I ain't mad at Canada just because I piss on it.  It's just a little piss, don't be so sensitive,  boy.

    I'm definitely not mad nor have I shown any anger. I'm also not sensitive. I also don't piss on Canada. I see no point in doing it. I accept it for its limitations and understand that it's a very large piece of land with a small sprawling population. Unity will only be displayed when Canada plays hockey in the Olympics or if the Raptors win. Otherwise, there is very little unifying features and conditions between people in different parts of Canada. It's just how it is. You can't change that.

    Your life lottery was that you were born in this part of the world. You have a platform that most others will never realize. Be happy about that.

     I have no Canadian failures, I don't invest in Canada at all, wouldn't invest here because it's a clown show.

    I invest and I make money. Perhaps you don't know how to invest correctly.

    I said refining gasoline is not a role of government, which is stating the obvious, you told me to shut up cause Trudeau or something about him, I rightly told you to gfy.

    I never mentioned Trudeau and I wasn't talking to you. I was talking about the many Albertans who play the victim card.

    Canada is a joke,  fake country, you can't get anything done in Canada, but don't brame me roundeye, it's your problem not mine.

    Canada is young with a small population. What do you expect it to do? It's a teenager in an awkward phase. It has no defining character. It's not Britain, it's not U.S. and it's not anything. It's a rapidly changing country and no one can stop it. Stop being so mad at Canada.

    They've always been sell outs, from the beginning. They were never not sell outs. They are Liberals with a different name and different gang colors, fake opposition.

    Fair. I accept that they're not any different than the Liberals. What does this mean? Are the PPC the real conservatives? Why did they not get any support? People were scared to support them due to labels? Why did Trump receive support down South? Maxime had very similar ideas and talking points as Trump. Yet, Maxime failed.

    I don't manage anything in Canada, [email protected] Canada and [email protected] you too you dick sucking partisan hack.

    Calm down you angry old man. You're frothing. Projecting your own failures onto others won't get you anywhere. I have 0 affiliation with any parties and have never once advocated for any of them. Old age has rotted your receptors.

    Advocating for Venezuela North, while fronting like he's advocating for Norway West, to sell Venezuela North. That's marcus for you.

    That's quite the statement. Your tunnel vision prevents you from understanding what people advocate. Why don't you surprise people for once and try to go just one day without pigeonholing everything and everyone.

    Doubling down on oil would not have saved Alberta. Building refineries is not diversifying. Government intervention is not the answer to Alberta's woes, and neither is tunnel visioning on oil. More central planning equals more mismanagement, not less, you are pushing them to be more incompetent with your proposals.

    My comments are more about the past and their failure to take that step. 

    I do wonder why refineries were never pushed or talked about by the Alberta government. I guess when you have money pouring in, you just sit back and not think about what if this ends. 

    Now that those days are gone, instead of looking at how to fix the issues, they are doubling down and flogging a dead horse. You can't make Alberta great again like this.


  14. Just now, Dougie93 said:

    Because that's dumb too, don't intervene to prop oilsands, don't intervene to nationalize refineries, stop trying to central plan it, refining gasoline is not a role of government.

    Who is going to pay $10 billion to build a refinery? The Alberta government had a chance to do it at one point. Now they want to play the victim card. Trudeau this. Commies that. Blah fucking blah. Shut up and own up to your own mismanagement. 


  15. Just now, Yzermandius19 said:

    Because the oilsands oil sucks, and we better off importing a better product for much cheaper. Economic nationalism is for rubes.

    Then leave them be. Why try to milk a cow that's giving you sour milk?

    Use the low taxes to attract companies outside of the energy sector. Bring in U.S. tech companies that are looking for a new home. Why are they moving to Vancouver and Toronto and not to Calgary and Edmonton? Invest more in other sectors, instead of being a one-trick pony. 

    Alberta did it all wrong. They didn't save any of their earnings from the glory days. Look at that pinko-commie country Norway. They did it right. They invested their money in a variety of industries, including renewables. Now they're thriving and have more than just their oil industry. Unlike Alberta. 


  16. Dirtying our planet aside, the oilsands are bad business. Cut your losses and run. Just let it go already. Stop trying to sell low grade oil to foreign countries, in a market where it's difficult to have a margin. Is it not worth it to have our own refineries and use our resources for ourselves? Why does no one talk about refining our own oil and using it in our own country, instead of having them shipped from all over the world?

    It was an obvious failure from the beginning. Classical Liberal Conservatism doesn't fly in Canada, they are just labeled as "White Supremacist Nazi's" by the media, and the rubes eat it up. The PPC was always merely a protest vote against CPC cuckery.

    The PPC was a vanity project by Maxime.

    How is the CPC selling out?

    If you go back and look at Mulroney's party and its policies, you'll see that they were actually closer to the centre than the current CPC party. They actually took steps to protect and conserve the environment. Mulroney led the way in the world with policies to heal the ozone layer, from damage caused by aerosol sprays and coolants.

    The fear being displayed by some conservatives right now has nothing to do with changes in the policies of the CPC, because their policies have not changed much. Those who are mad at the CPC are mad because the party refuses to pull a suicidal act, like Bernier did, to appease a loud minority, by denouncing immigration and immigrants.

    How do you figure that?

    We all know that Trudeau will go to any length to protect and promote Quebec jobs, but what has he done to help Alberta?

    It's neither Trudeau or Kenny. It's the price of oil. Especially tar sand oil.

    What Alberta needs to do is to invest in and build a refinery. I don't understand why they don't do that. Why not sell our own fuel in Canada, instead of having them shipped over from South America, Africa and Saudi Arabia. 


  19. So much noise from a loud minority and at the end, a major failure.

    It just goes to show that this kind of "populism" has very little support in Canada.

    I would be surprised if the PPC or Maxime Bernier, who couldn't even win in his own riding, will try to make any comebacks.

    Good riddance.
