  1. no Bryan, the ones I have with "Conservative" on them, are actually government paid mailers....Not all of them, but a good many. The Conserative Mailers are in Colour, the Mailers from the MPs sent into the region with are Black and White. Again, I had thousands of them... It was quite embarrassing, and no doubt an abuse of the system. Yes, Having stopped because of a majority, doesn't make what you did when you had a minority ok. And even the ones without hte Conservative logo, are still PURE PROPOGANDA... Constant Election Mode, paid by the taxpayer...
  2. That is my understanding to of how the system used to work and how it should work and how it should be interpreted. You couldn t have said it any clearer/ So.. Has there been an increase in abuse? That may be teh question. Interns are complaining, some are using words that exagerrate the abuse. Slave Labour is a throwaway term and is not helpful to the argument. THere has been a recent increase in "slave labour" found throughout Canada of recent, but it has not been Interns, its been, immigrant, migrant adn foreign temp, victimized by human traffickers.
  3. I recall from 2006 till 2011 being carpet bombed, sometimes 2 to 3 PER WEEK, of these mailings from the Conservatives. Of the Hundreds upon hundreds I had collected, numerous ones had CONSERVATIVE written on them. I even got some from the no gone and forgotten Rob Anders. Well I got lots from him. I started keeping them until I had 3 BLUE BOXES Full. They Used to attack DION, and have 3 empty boxes and one CHECKMARKED box beside Harpers Name. All with some Conservative Campaign slogan. and some accusation against the Liberal Leader, be it DION or later Ignatieff. I believe I started or eng
  4. NFLD really seems to eat up leaders of all parties... must be some rough and tumble politics. I really liked Danny Williams I liked that Little women that the NDP rebelled against. I didn't know much about Dunderdale, but apparently a bitter pill... So, why does nobody seem to want to be premier of a HAVE province lol
  5. Very Strange, considering Tim Hudak and the PCs prevented local candidates from challenging their hand picked Openly Gay Toronto residing candidate. A former MPP and Cabinet minister and having the help of Gays in the Federal Caucus. This Gay thing is such a non issue, with regards to the piss poor PC campaign and its mathematically challenged platform of hope. Perhaps you missed it, but Rob Ford Wouldn't vote for Tim Hudak , because he supports Gays and Gay Pride, and the Flag. Ironically, I am not sure if Rob managed a vote from rehab, but he doesn't get to select Tim Hudak, he would have
  6. The NDP took 2 Seats from the Liberals. How many seats did the PCs take from the Liberals? The NDP took seats in Working Class Ridings, All 3 seat pickups were in working class ridings. The NDP lost seats in Toronto ridings where the Liberals were targeting their seats with a campaign that said... IF YOU WANT TO STOP TIM HUDAK VOTE LIBERAL!!!! The counter to that attack was if you want to stop Tim Hudak, vote NDP.... Unfortuneately for everyone, the PCs ran a SHIT campaign with an incompetent and mathematically challenged goof who appeared DANGEROUS to everyone , including many PC voting
  7. "Harper Government Spending more money on vets then ever" Lets see the proof...
  8. A change in government is needed. A house cleaning has been long overdue.
  9. Conservatives seem to be driven by entitlement What is interesting is how quickly they turn on one another when exposed. I also like the deflect that those Conservatives are "NOT" conservatives, lmao.. sure tell it to Conrad Black.. another entitled Liberal lol.
  10. Not saying you are wrong or right, merely its a choice the Provinces elected officials make based on the will and desire of the public. Alberta still has 4Million people to go before equaling Quebecs Population. And Alberta has major infrastructure challenges to meet that growth. When Alberta can sustain 8 million people is yet to be determined. So, to be clear, I agree with what you are implying. but the outcome remains unclear. As Albertas wealth is in natural resources, which no matter how long they last, there is a finite timeline, which lower taxes will not cure nor will higher taxes.
  11. Federal Taxes from Quebec support Farm subsidies in Alberta. All Canadians pay into the same pot. Regardless..... it is also untrue that equalization allows Quebec to afford services that are impossibly generous for Alberta. The equalization formula tells us that the Alberta government could collect twice as much revenue as Quebec (including its equalization payments) if both provinces had identical tax rates. In other words, Alberta could easily afford tuition rates lower than those in Quebec, and plenty more besides, if it was willing to pay for them. Can we eliminate this “injustice?” S
  12. How much Quebec receives in transfer payments and how much it is in debt/ deficit are mutually exclusive. Quebec could run a budget surplus and still receive transfer payments. "Fiscal capacity and fiscal need are not equivalent to measures of fiscal revenue and expenditure, as making them so would induce perverse incentives to subnational governments to reduce fiscal effort." Transfer Payments have been explained many times I don't intend to repeat either myself or Smallc, who has posted on this topic for many many many years on this forum regarding transfer payments. No Province in Canad
  13. Great discussion, makes me happy to see the MLW posters attack this subject with healthy debate rationall thought and yes opinion too... Tim G. I agree with both your posts, and your link uses the same data i was viewing from stats can, in the report. SmallC, yes 2009 would skew most anyones data, however, I must say, Ontario will continue on a long slow steady decline, unfortuneately as it has been economically rudderless for years and I don't see that changing. Westguy, No I am not suggesting that Quebec is the only Province that makes "excessive contributions" your words. I am saying Que
