  1. Spanish flu occurred over a hundred years ago, before twitter, facebook, youtube, etc. etc. I'm not too concerned with contracting the coronavirus, I'm very concerned, however about the public's reaction to it. Society has put all its trust in the fragile systems that keep things stable and keep us alive. People's perspectives change when shelves at the grocery stores are empty and their investments are in the tank. I fully expect in his clueless, tone-deaf way, for Trudeau to announce and bring in his gun ban anytime...that ought to calm things down. I've noticed that this government
  2. Leaders are just getting back from break, they have a very busy agenda ahead of them of kicking around a new trade deal, figuring out how to creatively stall or deep six a new AB oilsands mine without further pissing off a province full of already unhappy westerners, and banning legal possessions from lawful Canadians. Priorities. Also, Trudeau's new beard apparently hasn't made him more astute, same guy...might be wise not to get your expectations up.
  3. 600 million and a bowl of poutine should about cover it. Haven't you heard?? Trudeau's not running squat anymore. Chrystia Freeland is now the minister for almost everything Why work?? that's s what he has strong, obedient women on his "team" for. Really, it's win-win for him....he can step back from all that annoying work stuff and focus more on his surfing and international travel....and and he can polish up his feminist facade at the same time. It seems to have grown a bit tarnished lately.
  4. First off, what is the Liberal definition of an assault rifle? The term "assault rifle" is generally defined as a selective fire rifle chambered in a medium caliber which is magazine fed. If this is the agreed term, I have great news for the Liberals...these weapons are already prohibited. Of course Trudeau already knows this, so that leaves us with one of two possibilities regarding what his agenda might be. Either Trudeau Liberals are pandering to Canadians who are uneducated about gun classification and actually plan on doing nothing, or they are planning to modify the definition to acc
  5. I wonder what defines an "assualt" rifle... Caliber?  colour?  Maybe the plan is to just take all center-fire semi-autos since that will be easiest.  And lets face it and drop the bullshit...that's the Liberals end game anyhow.

      I think it is,  but correct me if I'm wrong here.   I don't believe there is an official Canadian definition for “assault rifle”,   but we  define assault rifles as having fully automatic capability. Sales and possession of such firearms have been banned in Canada since the 70s.

      So, essentially, they intend to ban hunting rifles and sport-shooting rifles, which they've termed as 'military-style assault rifles'. Actual assault rifles are already banned, so the rifles that they're referring to are ones currently classified as 'prohibited'. As the name implies, they're not easy to get, and the licences and background checks to get them are very strict. 

      They chose to make their announcement in Toronto's Greektown, the site of a horrific shooting last year. Their announcement targets law-abiding gun owners, but it's important to note: the shooting in Greektown was perpetrated with a gun illegally obtained after being smuggled into Canada.

  6. I see this as maybe the biggest problem for Trudeau. He and his war room spent the last several weeks searching, micro-analyzing and weaponizing past comments, associations, and actions of his opponents and attacking them on social media and elsewhere with constant accusations of racist, white supremacist, homophobe, etc. based on actions of the past...knowing the whole time this was in his past and that it may possibly come out. He inferred continuously that people don't change their past views. This lays bare and exposes his monumentally shallow hypocrisy, and complete and total lack of
  7. Vote however you want, that's how democracy works. Nowhere did I say our country is being destroyed..but I do think his policies and positions, particularly on our resource sector, have done deep and sustained damage to our economy that will take decades to repair. It may not be obvious right now, but it will become painfully obvious in the future. We've hobbled ourselves with tanker bans,anti pipeline policies, and new laws and bills that will affect more than just the oil and gas sector, causing major self-inflicted damage to all areas of our resource development in a compet
  8. Projection and cynicism of future leadership is a pathetic excuse for accepting current corruption. People who engage in this earn exactly the leadership they deserve. Unfortunately, the rest of us who actually care are dragged along for the ride. As I have said previously, last election Trudeau was a relative unknown to some who weren't paying attention and their ignorance could maybe be understood. Not this time, however...this time we know precisely who Trudeau is. If Canada decides to elect this fool, it's on us....this time ignorance cannot be used as a credible excuse.
  9. I think either Michelle Rempel, or Lisa Raitt would be very solid in the leadership role for the party. I also think someone like Pierre Poilievre would be a good choice. It is incomprehensible to me that Trudeau has any support left in this country. I don't see this as so much a reflection of Trudeau's incompetence, or even of Scheer's, as much as it is a result of the apparent acceptance of corruption and incompetence by Canadian voters. It's very disappointing, and actually worrisome that Canadian voters can place such a low value on ethics and performance, and be swayed so easily
  10. He used to be, until he went from representing the people in his riding in SK, to representing Trudeau's brand and pushing his idealistic garbage on an unappreciative constituency of people he represented.
  11. Finally, a coherant point that you and I can agree on.
  12. If that's the case, maybe the GG needs to sit down with Trudeau and explain this in words that he will understand before he goes and invites any more "subjects of the British Crown" turned terrorists into the country. I'm sure Goodale would appreciate it....as would the rest of us.
  13. In a statement released by Goodale's office... "There is no legal obligation to facilitate their return," the statement read. "We are not able to comment on specific cases or national security operational matters." Sounds like Trudeau is going to need to reign Ralph in and sit him down and explain the Liberal perspective to him. We can't have Goodale going around "devaluing citizenship for all Canadians". Trudeau says Bill C-24 makes citizenship conditional upon 'good behaviour' “The Liberal Party believes that terrorists should get to keep their Canadian citizenship ... because
  14. “I disagree with the ethic’s commissioner's findings, but I accept the report.”

    “I take the ethics commissioner’s report very seriously, and we will be moving forward to make sure this never happens again…under any government in this country. “

    “But at the same time, I can’t apologize for standing up for Canadian jobs.”

      Can't stand watching him stammer out his defensive nonsense, as if he knows what he was talking about. Let's call it like we see it here... incompetent PM.

  15. Not unprecedented...as you aptly point out, this is not the first time Trudeau has violated provisions in the Conflict of Interest Act. I'm not sure what's more bewildering, Trudeau's willful contempt for moral integrity and dismal ethical standard, or the voters who are still defending his actions and supporting him despite such corruption. One thing's for sure, if Canadians vote to give him another mandate, its' not on Trudeau....it's on Canadian voters. Can't plead ignorance this time around.
