I think a majority of Canadians are more worried about their homes and jobs to be concerned with environmental topics right now.

I hold nothing against the Brits, but I find stereotypes of all cultures and people absolute comedic gold, even Anti-Canadian jokes are funny if they are well-made.

But I don't "mean it". It's not to offend, it's to laugh.


Who's supposed to find that funny?
I'm a Brit and I didn't find it funny. And my teeth are rather nice.
Did you find it funny?

Awwe look, the racist redneck chicken doesn't understand the difference between making a crack at a stereotype and just being an all around racist farm animal. :)

*shakes head*

I hate people who can't laugh at their own culture.

Did I find what funny? My joke? Well, it was mild at best. A small crack. Something that one really would LOL at, but might smile.

Good luck with your search.

Maybe not Jack, but the chick who wears the pants in the Layton clan did and does.

So Olivia Chow and the Green Party both support copyright reform with fair use in mind, and that somehow is equivalent to the NDP supporting May and the green party? Try again.

Goes hand in hand.. the environmental issue will create jobs... jobs polluted it and jobs are needed to clean it up.. many people are worried about the environment and the future for their children and grandchildren.. We have to start somewhere and not encouraging the use of oil is one of them..

true, all that environmental pollution from the now defunct manufacturing industry in southern Ontario really needs to be cleaned up. We could put the 1 million unemployed Ontarian's to work by cleaning up the mess :P

There's a difference between "encouraging" and "relying" on oil. But RUEZ is right on. People are more concerned of the economy than of environment at the moment.

It'll definitely be interesting to see what happens to their vote share in the next election, if the economy is still in the tank.

It's Mazlow's Hierarchy of Needs. You don't worry about the big picture items like the environment when you are struggling to make ends meet. But the environment as an issue has been in a downswing for a long time. Canadians just like to hear that they are environemtnally friendly now, when in fact our laws tend to be much more lax than big bad US laws.

I'll call bullshit on that one.

You got some facts and figures in laymans terms Zip?
Show me how Canada has less regulation and due diligence then the states.
You cant take a piss off a road without a permit in the oilfields and you have to do habitat mitigation anywhere in Canada which is some of the best in the world.

I think that food is right up there on Maslows theory.. If we live in a polluted environment where we cant grow crops or eat the meat from animals we are SOL..
Housing and jobs are important too for self actualization but many jobs can be created cleaning up the environment and developing methods to protect the earth for future generations. . No point having a job if you cant buy food,,,you have to fuel the body first before anything else would have meaning. not to mention clean air to breath and fresh clean water to drink.. take another look at Maslows pyramid..
food, water, air are right up there..
