  1. Just one more example of what low life lying sacks of shit make up the Conservative party. Anyone defending this is pathetic worm.
  2. If his cabinet responsibilities relate to a knowledge of science, like an "evironment minister", I damn well would. Then when our minister of state for "science" belives that the world is a mere 6000 years old this certainly doesn't surprise me as much as it should. disgusts me, yes...surprises me....not so much. I guarantee that the NDP environment "critic" damn well knows what ozone is. pretty shallow talent pool in the "harper government" I guess.
  3. His sword? Your Conservative hero worship has gone to far when you capitalize "his". Isn't that reserved for someone a little more important than lyin brian? Just a typo I'm sure.
  4. Says you? Supply chain management is what keeps the family farm and fishery alive. It helps spread the wealth in the industry between more people, giving more families spending power. Removing these protections will only result in more wealth being concentrated in fewer hands.
  5. No actually that is not true. You can apply for a liscence to sell outside the board, you just cant sell a fish that is marketed by Freshwater into a market that is serviced by Freshwater. Most of the fishers support Freshwater, there is a small minority of fishers who are angry at Freshwater over a dispute with their liscence to sell mullet, because they broke their contract by selling mullet into the New York Kosher market. This market pays the most for mullet so by by-passing Freshwater these people can get a higher price for their mullet. The problem is that the higher prices in this m
  6. The provincial justice ministers could just tell the cops and crowns not to enforce certain laws just like they did with the gun registry. Also provincial governments could play hardball by reducing the ammount in police budgets by the same ammount those police agencies cost the provinces by enforcing stupid laws like pot prohibition. That would be great, but I doubt it will happen. It would be nice to see the provinces opt out of using the RCMP and have their own police agencies so the province can direct them as to its law enforcement priorities.
  7. You'll find that anyone not bowing down to Harper as the new Messiah and parroting the CPC talking points loudly enough is soon branded a "commie" and worse by some on this forum. Ignore the idiots though, and you can have a pretty meaningful political discussion here. I'd list them here for you to save you time and frustration, but they will reveal themselves quickly enough. Jack's letter to Canadians brought tears to my eyes, and I am really not in the mood to argue with fools right now. Welcome to the forum.
  8. My family is devastated to hear the news, we all knew and loved Jack very much. He will be missed.
  9. It is the message that the government is sending to all workers, not just the posties, that the owning class, will be favoured over the "working" class. They are basically telling the worker to go sit down at the back of the bus and shut the fawk up. Accept that your rulers make the rules and be happy for whatever scraps fall off their table. Do what you are told or be ready to live in one of the megaprisons we are building for the unruly. I hope that the workers of this country will unite and crush these assholes with a general strike.
  10. Nope I'll admit that I was minimalizing CP's lossess, just like they have been exagerating them.
  11. The NDP has been very good for Manitoba. We have had huge improvements in our infrastructure after years of neglect by the Filmon Tories. We also remember Filmon's promise not to sell MTS that he broke. We remember that screwy hughy was Filmon's right hand man at the time too. I don't think Manitobans are going to give Hugh a chance to steal Manitoba Hydro too. We also like that our public auto insurance actually repays us if it turns out they collected more in premiums than they needed to settle insurance claims. The NDP has invested in our health care instead of laying off thousands of
  12. Well that's kind of the point of a strike isn't it? To make the owners realize that they need the workers? If striking didn't affect the company, what would be the point? This is what gives the workers leverage when collectively bargaining for better work conditions.
  13. People just started sending stuff by purolator, which Canada Post owns, so in reality Canada post was not really losing much at all. Harper made sure to support the owners by stopping the slaves from being able to collectively bargain for their rights.
  14. Why microphones in people's homes, when we can just allow the government surveillance of our internet activity with no need for warrants like Harper is already planning to do?
  15. What about the Conservative way of pushing their faith on others through legislation?
  16. CJOB, the extreme right wing talk radio channel had Sellinger and McFayden debate on thursday morning (or was it friday) The radio station did a poll and about 70% said that Sellinger won... For those results to come in on such a right wing propaganda station, it shows that a lot of Manitobans still think huey is screwy. We would like to keep our Hydro publicly owned, not have it stolen by the Cons like MTS was. Also most of us realize that our public insurance keeps our rates lower than other provinces, and we even get rebates if the insurer makes more money than projected. Why would we
  17. Yet Conservatives seem to think that's just fine for choosing the fate of the whole country?
  18. You mean he would respect the outcome of a majority vote of the people of Quebec to determine their own future? Shocking! Thing is that it is Harper federal policies that will drive the people of quebec to vote for seperation, while the NDP policies that are much more in line with quebec's values would encourage them to want to remain Canadian. Harper is the real traitor for constantly playing the politics of division.
  19. Its called a nomination. In our party the people in the riding, not the party leader, get to pick their candidate. Even though the Conservatives don't allow them(nomination meetings) in ridings where they have an incumbant, the other parties do. The NDP members in the riding of Churchill VOTED desjarlais out. you know that little idea where the people get to pick their representative? Again I'll remind you that desjarlais who lost the nomination to Niki ran as an independent and came in third just before the other party that voted against SSM, the Conservatives. The Liberals Tina Keeper, a
  20. How many times are you going to repeat this lie? I am positive I have corrected you several times already on this issue. Desjarlais was never "ousted" from the NDP. She lost her parliamentary critic status as she should have for voting against party policy. People vote for the party's policy as much as they do for the representative. Desjarlais herself said she voted the way she did because of her religious convictions, not because she believed her constituents wanted her to vote against same sex marriage. The people in her riding did not vote for Bev Desjarlais religious viewpoints, the
  21. What's really pathetic are the Conservative party booster club members, calling down this young lady with names like "stupid bitch" for some percieved violation of parliamentary procedure. These are the same "stupid bitches" that have defended Harper for every breach of parliamentary ethics and procedure he has made over the last 5 years. Prorogue parliament to avoid a condfidence motion, no problem,...fixed election date? what fixed election date?....fundraising letters sent out of a minister's office? no problem, lying to parliament and altering signed documents? A problem...^NOT^. So
  22. Yes, and they were given the right of a free vote to do so. Ashton was re-elected, Malloway was not, what exactly is your point?
