  1. We can't even have fair and equitable trade with other provinces how do we expect to have fair trade deals with other nations...
  2. Will they be cut off from tide water ? , BC would have the opposite problem being cut off from the rest of Canada would it not ....and being forced to either pay for goods from the US, or pay the additional taxes Alberta applies to them to pass through Alberta, I mean really what does Alberta owe BC any ways..... I think BC would be quick to compromise some how....Lets not forget that if Alberta's goes, Saskatchewan is not far behind them, together they could always sell oil to the states, while losing money but then again delivering no taxes to Ottawa...who loses then ….this will also forcing Ontario , Quebec and NB, PEI to buy more Saudi oil....or paying top dollar to NFLD their oil and gas...this would be a great time for NFLD to stick it to Quebec over the Hydro project that Quebec screwed them on, and make them pay the highest fuel costs that the market would bear... No one really wins, except the west will begin prospering a lot faster than the east....and ROC will be forced to start producing their own resources to survive...just wondering what Quebec would do with out that extra 12 plus bil , not to mention the ROC who sucks on those western tits as well ...
  3. Yes but how many can process Alberta bitumen ? the Irving refinery would have to under go a massive upgrade to process this oil...don't get me wrong NB would love to have that pipe line , and the upgrades , but Quebec is not going to play ball, because there is nothing in it for them...and some how they've all changed into environmentalists over night...
  4. What do you want me to say yes,the city of Kabul was beautiful in the 1970's, it was , but then so was Berlin prior to WWII, so was most of France prior to WWI, Afghanistan's corrupt government and the Russians turned all that around....It happens when there is conflict....There has been tribal warfare in Afghanistan through out time, well before the Russians and well before the Americans came ...to bad you didn't read up on the entire history....And nobody is calling them animals thats your words not mine..the Taliban , and the rest of the many terrorist groups that roamed freely in that country were made up of mostly foreign Muslims...fighting the great Jihad... they deserved much more than NATO could give them... Ya google what these Taliban / and terrorist did to the people of Afghanistan nd then tell me that these scumbags deserved any mercy... while on patrol I had shared a part of my lunch with a young girl who's father had been killed in front of her, her mother raped and beaten, and once that was done they cut both her hands off, and left her to die...she was only 8 years old at the time...Her crime was going to school...The Russians had nothing to do with that.....on another occasion we talked to a village elder about digging a well for his village, the next morning when we came back he was staked out on the ground at the entrance to the village in the morning sun, the Taliban had skinned him alive, and left him to bake in the morning sun...he died several hours later in our care... I got many more stories, that these scumbags did to their own people, ....Don't give me this bullshit that we did this, we turned them into scumbags....Every man and women is responsible for his own actions...for carving out there own destiny in this world.... The day after 9/11 was when their regime and days of terror came to an end....an attack on one allied is an attack on all of them....it makes up one of the largest defensive pacts our nation signed on to....that day over 60 Canadians were killed in those towers....save your tears for those guys...So to answer your statement Yes we Attacked them, during Op Medusa with everything we had and a little bit more...It would be the last attack that the Taliban stayed and fought us in one location...ALLAH had his hands full that week trying to find virgins for all those dedicated terrorist who should have been ducking instead of weaving …
  5. Your giving Chretien way to much credit, It was the military that shut him down, we were not manned or equipped enough for Afghanistan what would make you think we could handle Iraq, which was equipped better than we were, but that is a source of pride in Canada..... that was the Ongoing joke we could always use capture equipment to bring home.... ....It was Chretien that had to save face, and against being advised to stay out of Afghanistan as well due to lack of training and proper equipment he sent us anyways, and it cost more than a few lives in the process...Martin is another liberal that wanted to be the military's friend....He moved us to Kandahar , the home of the Taliban, and we were smack in the middle of it, because it was where we could make the most difference the government said.......I spent 3 tours in that shit hole as an Infanteer and I can tell you the Taliban did not care who you where, every coalition soldier had a price on their heads including Canadians , You had to be aggressive to survive, read OP medusa...and tell me thats not aggressive.. like I said we were sent by our government to close with and destroy the bad guys, ALL of the bad guys, we even had the support of the people back home then....then you guys got bored shortly after and we started to pay for that lack of support with our lives.. A lot of the euro nations could not or did not get involved in the fighting....it was all political...we pushed the Taliban out of the Kandahar area , not by handing out blankets and teddy bears, but by putting them in the ground...It was during this time that most of Canadians back home lost interest, sure most of them bought those bumper stickers ,,,, but thats were the support stopped... Afghanistan went from a Canadian mission to a DND mission it was up to our military members to carry this mission, the entire mission costs came out of DND budget, meaning it ran in the red , routine training in Canada was stopped, if you we not training to go over to Afghanistan there was no training dollars, no ammo, no nothing no equipment , no training , unless it was free, and today even getting someone opinion cost money.......what DND did not cover, we the soldiers took out of our pockets , to build fire halls , hospitals , schools, etc all of it paid by our donations...SO when you attack someone , one of the few that supported soldiers , they tend to get defensive...Don Cherry knew all to well the score, he visited the trauma center in Kandahar which was constantly filled...with soldiers in various battle field wounds, he listened to soldiers stories.. For some one dimensional clown, he was passionate about bragging up soldiers, showing support, shaking hands , listening to every soldier story, more than I can say about the majority of Canadians.. He has already said he should have chosen his words differently, and if he had to do it over he would....
  6. your making a lot of assumptions here, jumping to i'm not sure where....I think Webster's should be contacted and we should change the definition of you people to be clearly brown, black anyone that is non white....
  7. Not even sure WTF this has to do with Don cherry at all, your quick to point out that it was harper who was the chicken hawk, and yet you give Mr. Chretien a free pass, I mean it was Mr Chretien who threw up his hand to send troops to Afghanistan in the first place, because he wanted nothing to do with the coalition going into Iraq, He did so against the military advice as we were not trained or equipped for this mission....he sent those troops in light , to hump the mountains to hunt down the Taliban and destroy what they could....not hand out blankets and teddy bears...why because he wanted his picture in the media.... Are you suggesting that if you have not worn a uniform you can't support the troops ? What are you going on about here ? You talk as if you had served during this time, not sure what it has to do with my post but sure give er …. as for the rest of the post Just doing the basics, if humping through the mountains killing every Taliban and terrorist they could is the basics then ya your right....but you skipped over that part and jumped to when we were in Kabul....when we patrolled in soft skin vehs , hunting down the Taliban where ever they were within the city....but hey WTF do I know...you can try and blame every on harper, but the decision to send in tanks was Chretien's, it takes time to refurb them with the new armor , train the crews, prepare them for shipment, find some one to fly them over.... It was however Harpers watch that upgraded those 40 year old tanks with new LEO IIA6M....In spring 2005 officials announced that the Canadian Forces would move back to the volatile Kandahar Province another liberal decision....to move us into one of the most contested zones of Afghanistan....onc e again with out the troops or right equipment. If that is a plug on towards me, your free to think what ever you want, I personally do give a f$$$k what you think, or how many movies you think I seen....what I do know is it was people like you with your attitude that left us high and dry in Afghanistan , without the manpower or the right equipment to do the job, and only when enough soldiers had died would we get some equipment but not enough to make a difference. Atleast we knew where don cherry stood, atleast he had the balls to risk his life to visit Canadians soldiers , he was'nt selling us any bullshit, he just want to see his troops...
  8. He was one of the few Canadians that supported the troops during the Afghanistan conflict, He's always had our backs...through thick and thin....he made trips there on several occasions I traveled 6 hours in the Back of LAV III in plus 50 weather just to meet the man, in Afghanistan....He did not disappoint, so I guess it is all in the eye of the beholder...
  9. It is also illegal to fire a person due to age alone is it not. So as long as he meets his conditions of employment then he should be fine. I think what all the snowflakes are missing here is Don Cherry has been a huge contributor to the NHL and the Game itself, and is one of the Icons of the sport, I can't think of anyone you has done more, he's had played, coached, produced instructional hockey camps for kids that was on TV for years, produced rock em sock em tapes that highlighted the best hits, goals saves, and plays that year had to offer, anyone who did not get atleast one of these tapes for Xmas is a lair, coaches corner has highlighted the good, bad and ugly in the games, for all to learn off of... He has done all this for most of his life...given to the game...and we are so quick to throw him to the dogs over something he has already said he did not articulate very well... but screw that, this is 2019 baby, get the rope some white boy is using them words again Martha….and the words "you people" means your directing it at brown people, because Toronto apparently has no other colors...when seconds ago in his conversation he was talking about the majority of people in Toronto and some other city in Ontario.... What the snowflakes also missed was NOV 11 was about remembering our nations soldiers, it's a day set aside for Canadian citizens to thank or pay tribute to it's military members, yes all of them white, brown, black the entire rainbow, even the purple ones with warts on their d*cks , just in case I forgot anyone ,or any color... ....it comes by only once a year...I get it we all lead busy lives, no time to spare....either can't find poppies or can't afford to buy a poppy or don't care....or the thousands of other reasons you have...You do what you do best .... Vets also know that Canada is not very concerned with anything military, or honoring it's citizens that picked up our nations call... But there is the other side of the coin.. there are still lots of people who do take this paying of tribute seriously, Don Cherry was one of them...he never missed a chance to shake a soldiers hand and say thanks, he visited Afghanistan on several occasions to once again pay tribute...perhaps he was over zealous in his attempt to get more people YES "you people " those that did not wear a poppy, whether your black, brown, white, pink with green strips, "everyone" (can I use that it's not racist is it) to feel the way he did....and this is the way we repay him...sometimes I think this nation is a little ungrateful.... This is what made the main news feed on NOV 11... To those Canadians that did wear a poppy , or attended a ceremony, or payed tribute in your own way.... I want to thank you, for your time and effort and for giving me the honor to serve this great nation. I spent the day with 8 of my good friends, talking , laughing, even crying , telling war stories about comrades no longer here.. drinking way to much...it's our way to keep our promise to never forget them or their sacrifice...
  10. Yes , I've seen 2 media columns on this already, both have taken it as far as you have , they actually said it was directed towards brown people....I might not be the brightest bulb in the pack but how does you people translate into brown people....or as you have pointed out people of color....is there a liberal dictionary out there , or some secret handshake we need to know so we don't trigger any more snow flakes...
  11. say it is not so Bubber….a liberal and a jets fan, thats got to be two strikes....
  12. Man Quebec has changed use to be the party capital of Canada, good looking strippers, real good looking girls at the clubs....now their calling for castrations….what is happening over there....Next you'll be telling us Poutine is banned or something...
  13. Was it not you who said He's 85 should have been fired a long time ago....you got something against old people Jacee… I thought you lefty's love all people....
  14. Sadly it is not all taken care off, the vet hospital we normally go to is in Fredericton, this year we went to ST John a much larger city so more vets....The legion funding is separated into two groups poppy fund and regular legion funds, the poppy fund can not be used to directly support vets in hospitals for things like furniture, tvs, entertainment, travel expenses for vets for treatments, etc etc ...and regular funding for legions well there's not much left due to the lack of members... our government pays for other things like facilities "sometimes" medical staff some times, pensions, etc etc ....thats why we do some raising of some funds normally sell tickets for wild turkeys " 40 oz or Texas Mickie's" or have a show and shine for cars and trucks the normal stuff, or just going around and getting donations from people we know....we normally do it once a year, go down donate something chat it up with the vets, in Fredricton they all have there bios on the outside of their rooms, what they did where they did it what medals and honors they have...it's a living history and they love to talk, don't bring your wife , you'll be there forever....they love the attention.. remember these guys are in the last years of their lives, not making much cash, most of what they do earn is going to pay for treatment or care, so even a good size tv is like a bar of gold to them....I will have to warn you sometimes your not going to like what you see, not that the care is bad or anything but they are there because they can not live by themselves anymore. some of these guys are in rough shape...the staff will let you know who is who.... Then we take a couple trips to the hospitals talk to staff and vets see what they want, raise some more funds then deliver it, and while it not always possible to rise large amounts of cash, the vets do appreciate anything we can give... to them your time is more valuable than cash gifts...for the most part but who does not like a new TV...
