    You going to deny that Conservatives and western Canadians don't despise and dislike Quebec?

    Have you not read his denials in the Quebec thread....

    We here in the West may not agree with Quebec politics but I for one am not about to throw an entire province under the bus simply because of politics.  There are millions of wonderful people living in that province, my relatives among them.

    So you're saying centuries of gay-unfriendliness is actually the fault of liberals and Islamic homophobes are progressive?

    Who knew?

    So your main arguments rely on age old happenings that have no application today.  Right.

    Calling Meghan Murphy alt-right is ludicrous. She isn't even conservative. She's always been over on the Left of the political spectrum and very much typical of the feminist radical with deep suspicion of men.

    "Murphy, a self-described socialist and radical feminist, has been an outspoken critic of the transgender activist movement, claiming that it has an outsized sociopolitical influence, especially in her native Canada."

    It's when stupid righties associate a handful of lame lefties with millions if not billions of normal lefties around the world that's at issue. Problem being there's little to no recognition of what a normal lefty is and to your ilk they're all lame.  You see the same thing when trying to point out normal Muslims to you people - there simply are none in your stupid universe.

    It is just as stupid when the left associates a handful of right wing yahoos with every single Conservative. Truth is there are blow-hards and whingers on both sides of many issues in Canada today.  Unfortunately, these disparate vocal entities get all the press. 

     

     

     


  6. I had my septic tank pumped out on Canada Day.  Considering the sad state of our nation, getting rid of some shit seemed like a fitting thing to do.  I'll celebrate the day again when this country gets back on track, boots the current government down the road and once again represents something to be proud of as right now it doesn't.

    Who are we to criticize others? All countries have ongoing human rights issues. It's the UN Conventions, and the collective approach of the UN that is important:

    https://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2018/05/11/un-human-rights-council-canada-indigenous_a_23432906/

    OTTAWA — Members of the United Nations Human Rights Council are urging Canada to improve its treatment of Indigenous people, in particular women and girls. 

    So Canadians don't have the right to question or criticize a supposed human rights commission that is composed of some countries whose own human rights record is absolutely appalling.  Give your head  shake.

    You don't realize the discussion has encompassed talking about an international commission do you?

    These are some of the countries that currently occupy a seat on the UN Human Rights Commission

    China

    Nigeria

    Iraq

    Afghanistan

    Somalia

    Pakistan

    Democratic Republic of the Congo

    Every single one of them has the ignominious honor of winning a spot on the list of 10 ten countries with the WORST human rights records in the World.  And, it is of long-standing.

    And we Canadians are supposed to take what this body says seriously?

    I guess it's always tempting to try to micromanage other people's business, but First Nations Band Councils are accountable to their Band members for uses of own-source revenues. That's how self-government works.

    Our obligation is to fulfill our Treaty and other legal obligations. So you might instead try holding our federal government accountable for the previous revenues of Indigenous Nations that disappeared into Canada's General Revenues and were used for the benefit of all Canadians instead.

    The "transfer of income", revenues from use of the land, went from Indigenous Trust Funds to Canada's General Revenues for 150 years. There is still some just "lip service" from our governments about more equitable revenue-sharing, but there is also some real movement to improvement, as in the Impact-Benefit Agreements you posted earlier. 

    Anybody mouthing stupidity like "from earners to non-earners" just chooses to disrespect Canada's reality, likely for personal gain - eg, to manipulate precarious people into fearing the Indigenous 'other', keep them down and scared and angry at 'somebody else', so they don't figure out that it is really the bloodsucking corporate predators cleaning out their pockets, just the same as they've done to Indigenous Peoples.   Lol

    You misunderstood: UNemployment is low, meaning Employment is high.

    And among millennials, Self-employment is increasing. Their entrepreneurial spirit is evident and welcome. But self-employment is often a roller-coaster ride, so we can expect to hear continuing complaining but their prospects in the long run may be quite good. Employment in Public Service was more the norm for Baby Boomers, providing the comfortable upbringing that millenials are now missing. But the way to real riches is via self-employment, owning a business, so it will be interesting to see how millennials make out over the longer term.

    Trump is a predator (and a white supremacist) of course, fanning fear of 'the other', posing himself as 'the saviour' ... always for personal gain, ego or otherwise. They say 'you have to hit bottom ...' and I'd say the US is there. Lol 

    AOC seems a very sensible person, well-intentioned. We'll see how that holds up. 

    In Canada, the only one who stands out is Elizabeth May, both sensible and innovative at the same time.

    No idea what you're getting at here. Maybe an example would clarify?

    But again, Elizabeth May seems a good model for sensible, data-driven decision-making.

    I'm very impressed, for example, with the Greens common-sense "Mission Possible' plan to ... 

    12 - Complete a national building retrofit

    Create millions of new, well-paying jobs in the trades by retrofitting every building in Canada – residential, commercial, and institutional – to be carbon neutral by 2030.

    https://www.greenparty.ca/en/mission-possible

    We're doing fairly well with residential, conserving energy by sealing our houses, etc. But 41% of Canada's GHG emissions come from 'large facilities', manufacturing, resource extraction, etc., a good place to start.

    https://www.canada.ca/en/environment-climate-change/services/environmental-indicators/greenhouse-gas-emissions/large-facilities.html

    "We must, as a community of nations, ensure that global average temperature does not rise more than 1.5 degrees C over pre-Industrial Revolution levels."

    Laudable goal.  It will be interesting to see how this will be achievable considering the utter lack of interest on the part of some of the world's biggest polluters - because without them onside nothing will be achieved. Canada can spend billions going to a green economy losings thousands and thousands of jobs in the process as we watch the temperatures continue to rise and deadly weather events become more frequent.

    As I mentioned before, it is because of all the terrible things the white man had done.

    All races have done terrible things over the millennia and to some extent a few still are but no, it is only the White person who deserves shaming and blaming.  What a farcical idiotic illogical notion.

    As above ^^

    Is there ever a time when someone refuses to be a victim, refuses to view themselves as a victim, refuses to play the part of a victim . . . 

    Generations of natives with no direction, no concept of how to look after themselves, no work ethic, no skills, no need to do anything . . . there is no amount of money that will 'fix' this.

    With a little bit of initiative and enthusiasm, most anyone can make their life better . . . .

    They can but as long as the activist types hold sway we can forget that they will ever even try.

    As opposed to idiots using over blown hyperbole and rhetoric because they don't like the fact the stats don't bear out the "Blame Whitey" bullshit narrative? Tell us oh great adjective spewer, how exactly does male Natives murdering female Natives constitute "genocide"? Why is a 17% unsolved rate for non-Native women not even newsworthy but a 19% unsolved rate for Native women is an abomination? The simple fact is, there have been studies on this very subject before and they all came to the same conclusion.  There was even an independent study on murdered and missing women in general  in Canada and across all racial groups, the vast majority of women are murdered by men from the same racial group. This latest MMIW crap is just another example of leftists (and various elements in the Native community who can't resist playing the identity politics game) refusing to accept reality.

    But then what can you expect from a group of worthless troglodytes who  scream "NAZI!!!!!!" every time someone rejects their morally and emotionally relativistic ideology while believing the Natives were caretakers of the Earth and lived in some Kum By Yah fantasy world.

    If nothing else this crap report has managed to wake many Canadians up to the idiocy of the native activists continuous demands and refusal to take responsibility for themselves.

  14. What a great victory for the Vice-Admiral!  Best move he made was to hire Marie - if anyone could bring this case to an end it would be her.  However, weenies that they are, the Crown did not 'drop' the charges today.  They 'stayed' them which means they have an entire year in which to decide whether to exonerate Mark Norman completely or bring forth actual, factual evidence against him.  After listening to a couple of lawyers comments on this today, there is zero chance that they will proceed with the case especially as they have dragged their feet on submitting the necessary documents Marie requested - over 6 months ago.

    Personally, I am really happy that the Vice-Admiral has been vindicated but the drawback is that Canadians may never know the truth behind the false allegations or just how much political interference there was in this case.

    More amazing that Scheer says "Vote for me! I'm an ultra-Christian Nazi with dimples!"

    And the answer is obvious ... vote for neither of the idiots. 

    Please provide a link to the story/article that this quote is taken from else you be proved nothing less than a liar unable to make sensible arguments on the topic instead making up your own false quotes.

    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau road tested his campaign strategy Friday, lumping Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer with Ontario Premier Doug Ford and other right-of-centre politicians who deny climate change, vilify immigrants and tolerate white nationalists.

    So it's obvious that this morally and intellectually bankrupt government is not so much going to defend its record of governing but make the election a smear campaign against the Conservatives (even though they promised never to do that). We've seen hints of that already from Freeland, Hussein and Blair. This 'vilify immigrants' thing is spoken by a guy who just introduced a legal change in an omnibus bill(which he said were undemocratic and promised never to use) which would basically removes the right of asylum seekers to a hearing if they had either come from a safe third country or had applied for refugee status anywhere else. Not only that but it would deport them not to the other country they applied for asylum in but to their original country of origin! If Scheer had the balls to even suggest that a few months ago Trudeau and his Libs would have been screaming insults from morning to midnight.

    This is a truly desperate government not interested in running on its record, and even less interested in honesty or integrity.

    To be honest, Argus - the little potato doesn't have much of, if any, record worth mentioning unless it is one of failure, contempt for Canadians and a litany of lies.  Thus he left to the age-old liberal tactics of attacking the opposition.

    Is anyone else alarmed that Notley's NDP still won 24 seats? WTF were people thinking? We hate jobs?

     

    After decades of one party rule, Alberta finally broke the trend when Rachel's NDP government was elected.  She had no easy job and I give her some credit for trying to stand up for the provinces interests.  The die was cast against her for many reasons not the least of which was a back-lash against the anti-oil antics of the little potato's government.  My friends in Alberta who voted UCP told me they did so more as rebuttal of the Feds then as a full-out support of the UCP.

    1. Justin Trudeau is like his mother. Well-intentioned, beautiful - but an original idiot.

    2. With his name, many ambitious people got close to him - and screwed him over.

    3. After Dion, Ignatieff - the federal Liberal Party was desperate for a winner. (Many voters choose beautiful blue eyes, not so now.)   

    ====

    I still think that the federal Liberal Party has a place in Canada.

    I agree with all the points except for the 'well-intentioned' bit, Argus.  Idiots aren't known to have many intentions - good or otherwise -  being that they have a difficult time even trying to form a single coherent thought.

    After watching him perform for over 3 years now, I am of the opinion that he is shallow, narcissistic, given to huge flights of fancy and sorely lacking in leadership ability.  His niche politics approach to governing and championing of social justice initiatives over and above the common good has been divisive and corrosive. 

     


  19. Christie Blatchford: After the way Trudeau treated them, why do they even still want to be Liberals?

    " For God’s sakes, why are those other people — the muscled-out and muzzled Jody Wilson-Raybould, the booted and betrayed Jane Philpott, the deeply confused members of Philpott’s riding association in Markham-Stouffville, Ont., — all still proclaiming themselves to be proud Liberals? "
