  1. Biden keeps Trump's U.S. covid travel restrictions in place.

  2. Rota: Trudeau/Liberal government violated parliamentary privilege with redacted lab documents.

  3. Biden keeps border travel restrictions for Canada and Mexico..."too risky".

      ...For people coming into the COVID infested country. 

  4. New details have emerged concerning Canada's role in Haiti's 2004 coup, specifically the conspiracy to plan and kidnap Haiti's then democratically elected president, President Jean-Bertrand Aristide. Even more interesting is the Liberal government's rationalization for the "Ottawa Initiative on Haiti" given the context of a reluctance for the invasion of Iraq (2003) and its own "Responsibility to Protect" rationalization for interventions (e.g. 1999 Kosovo War), now widely discredited by many UN member nations as "humanitarian imperialism". Haiti has been purposely destabilized for over 100 years by American, Canadian, French, and other interests. The latest assassination just continues the legacy of corruption, violence, and international complicity.
  5. Corrupt Trudeau/Liberals block testimony about MP campaign budgets and U.S. analytics firm.

      Sounds kind of like American collusion.

  6. Maybe less so because of limited R&D investment, but government institutions in Canada have developed several important technologies (e.g. insulin (Univ of Toronto), atomic energy (fission labs), etc.). Canada's National Research Council (NRC) has provided things like the artificial pacemaker, canola/rapeseed, and the cesium atomic clock, which U.S. submarines used on patrol during much of the Cold War.
  7. Sorry, but this is a generalization that simply is not true. Government R&D investment in universities and agencies has often resulted in applied science and technological innovation. Yes, there is plenty of pure science only...but I know from personal experience that some technologies never would come to market were it not for the direct role of government funding and applied science institutions. This is true for sectors like defence, agriculture, transportation, health care, energy, etc.
  8. "Western Canada thanks Tampa Bay"... for defeating Habs (Stanley Cup 2021).

      Ontario too haha.

      I'm kinda glad Cory Perry didn't get a Stanley cup. He's not a nice man.

      Pretty much all of Canada other than Quebec.  Kucherov is my new favourite player.  I loved how he ripped Montreal fans!

      Not this Western Canadian.

  9. I don't know why you are focusing so much on conservatives or Christians...this is an issue for many different people from a wide spectrum of social, political, and religious backgrounds. I know from personal experience with a 6" 9", 320lb transgender woman in the workplace that most women did not want to permit "them" access to the female rest rooms or on-site locker room. With notice, HR had to clear out the rest room and prevent other women from entering while "they" used the facilities. "They" refused to limit their use to the existing unisex rest room in order to press the issue and agenda. It got to the point where women would go the rest room in pairs or more to make sure they wouldn't have to deal with "them" alone.
  10. All men in society do not have a natural urge to rape or get a pass to do so...that is a ridiculous assertion. It is women (and minors) from all backgrounds who can demand that their safety be assured from such threats regardless of the sex/gender source.
  11. But it is not just religious conservatives who object to the circumstances of this incident. Women (and girls) of many different religious/political stripes should not be forced to feel "safe" around transgender people under such circumstances. This story has been played out many times in California...I specifically recall lawsuits against women's only gyms that exclude males. Some states have passed legislation protecting same sex/gender businesses and public accommodation that has been challenged in the courts. If you have ever been a parent with small children changing in pool locker rooms for swim lessons then the issue becomes more than just a debate on web forums.
  12. But it is not just stupidity...voting fraud is a felony for a reason.
  13. I have never understood this perspective and dismissal of any voting fraud because it may not have impacted the outcome of an election. Doesn't make any sense...as if voting fraud is to be tolerated at any level.
  14. Supreme Court backs Arizona voting restrictions....
  15. Doesn't matter....still voter fraud either way.
  16. CBC/Wherry op-ed gushes about George Floyd murder...no mention of children's unmarked graves in Canada.

      Are they comparable? 

  17. Canada and Catholic Church:  People see thousands of unmarked First Nations' graves differently.

      By and large, the Catholic Church is a shameful institution.

      American has its own residential native schools and graveyards. It just doesn't care.

    3. OftenWrong

      We are better than the US... we care!  

  18. Correct...America is not so confused about its past or present. It is so influential that social and economic dynamics easily cross the Canadian border, as if filling a void that some Canadians refuse to fill themselves. Canadians know about the U.S. Fed, CDC, FDA, NASA, NOAA, FAA, and a host of other alphabet federal agencies...because they want to. Canada intervenes in other nations as well, but pretends it is a "responsibility to protect"...for oil services, mining, infrastructure projects, etc. (including any requisite bribes). You can denounce all that by not looking to America to provide you with "solutions", that will only happen when it benefits...America. We put the war into "class war".
  19. The same thing that leads you to believe the USA is your driver for solutions to class warfare and income inequality. If you had focused this thread on Canada instead, I would have passed it by. Wall Street is not in Toronto...and France will not save you either.
  20. Already explained years ago....the forum engine is American...site was hosted for years in America...and U.S. content abounds, even in threads about Canada. It is very common in many forms of Canadian media, but most Americans have no idea how much it drives the Canadian narrative. I am here...because America is here...in spades. America will not save you with a "solution", and is more likely to bury you.
  21. Yes...a Canadian forum with some members who are obsessed with a foreign country (USA) and believe it matters more than their own. Strange... The working class has winners and losers...be a winner.
  22. People still have opportunities to succeed...and fail. It has always been thus, and will not be changing anytime soon by a magic "solution". Economics does not care. Worrying about what is happening in another nation (USA) over your own speaks volumes about the power you have already given up. I and many others refuse to do that...refuse to play the victim. Nobody is going to give you a "solution"...so you have to make your own.
  23. The "deep sh*t" is not any deeper or more concerning than before, and is in many ways less "deeper". Your perceptions are your own, and do not necessarily translate to any more concern than before. So yes, there will be another economic and social cycle just like before, and then there will be another and another down the road. This is the reality then, now, and into the future. There is strength and perseverance to be found in knowing and understanding the past to see how groups and nations survived and even thrived. What is it that you expect to be done ?
