  1. 1. If you look at real estate as 'housing' then sure. I am not saying you should or shouldn't do that. (You should, definitely.) But there are other aspects: Tourism, development, Air BnB and that whole ball of fun... It drives economic activity 2. Should we employ a "General Happiness Quotient" or somesuch ? I love such conversations... preferably had on a hill in summertime,with bongos playing and shirtless women passing a doob around. Me in my tweed suit and Starbucks just taking it all in. 3. If the powerful want money to move then it will be moved by the movers, and the poor wil
  2. 1. Regardless of whether you agree with the idea, it is bought into by business and economic orthodoxy, so this is to me what is driving immigration. 2. A lot won't agree with you here. I would say that having cosmopolitan ideas, and especially entrepreneurship is something we can use,though.
  3. Ok well religious clubs in school, or prayer rooms... the parents won't accept those being banned and I doubt you would survive a court challenge for that.
  4. Source ? According to the 2011 National Household Survey, the largest religion in Canada was Christianity. About 22.1 million people—or just over two-thirds (67.3%) of the population—reported that they were affiliated with a Christian religion. Catholics were the largest Christian religious group in 2011, at 12.8 million people. https://www150.statcan.gc.ca/n1/pub/91-003-x/2014001/section03/33-eng.htm
  5. 1. Why not though ? Because why ? I think any subgroup that is socially acceptable should be allowed to have a 'club' and that effectively is what school prayer is today. 2. Of school ? I don't know that they teach anything like that but ... you know I live with a teacher so maybe I should ask ?
  6. Yet more NDP talking points... so strange to me. I would be glad if the government put a pin in the balloon of real estate prices but that's a huge economic driver. With resources in decline, international trade in the crosshairs ... what exactly will be left is anyone's guess. The table is being set for actual Marxism, not Trudeauism.... and these types of posts help the cause IMO
  7. 1. It's refreshing to meet someone who doesn't support divorce, if anachronistic. 2. Luckily for you the foundations of this country guarantee that your religious rights will be protected, although I would say they are encroached upon. Moreover, the conventionality of your metaphysical views are more or less welcomed by a broad public in this country.
  8. 1. Why do Canadian banks want votes then ? The part that is missing from this entire conversation, and that makes it feel like an uninformed conspiracy-type conversation is that nobody is talking about the obvious benefits of immigration as identified by conventional economics: increased economic activity. The premise seems to be that there is a fixed economy, and more people means less to go around. That is not how it works. The exception to this view is Argus - perhaps the only critic of immigration I have read on here, or anywhere, who at least appreciates the economic orthodoxy and h
  9. We should be teaching our Canadian values: honesty, hard work, pragmatism, tolerance, and community. Things like that. Christianity has drifted so far from its principles that it's almost irredeemable at this point. Just extract the principles and fumigate the brainless Jesus worship part.
  10. Of course there are Christian prayers in school. They even had the Lord's Prayer on the speakers only a few years ago. Let's stop feeding hysteria. If people want a Christian nation they can move to one.
  11. You can say that Canada was founded in Christian 'principles', but to then pivot and say what that was about was intolerance, and anti-abortion is incorrect at best. All good ideas, such as Christianity and Buddhism, which is related, are built upon and... yes... progress. For example, we have divorce now.
  12. Fft. Trump didn't do anything about the trade deficit either. The difference between him and the others is he lies and says he's taking on China. I guess that counts for something.
