The other thing Conservatives need to remember is that, unlike the NDP (and they’re not even that consistent anymore), the Liberals are not an anti-business party. They’re an anti-business-without-connections-to-the-party party. They’re the referee who shows preference for certain teams, and this in...

So I think that's where a lot of the appeal of conservatism can come from. Making it more difficult to caricature them as Canada's answer to Bible Belt Republicans goes a long way towards broadening their appeal, too. Let's not forget Stephen Harper and Jason Kenney's success at reaching out to mor...

Obesity's always been regarded as a moral/personal failing where the individual with the problem gets to be bullied mercilessly by the pretty people, and all with society's full approval. It's only been in the last several decades where the genetic/medical/brain dispositions towards being overweigh...

On the other hand, Trudeau is backing Kinder Morgan at a significant political cost to himself and the Liberals. He’s playing a longer game than the B.C. government is. He’s “fighting” just hard enough to convince the average Canadian that he’s not his father when it comes to Alberta. Imagine if th...

The federal government is playing this pretty well. I’m wondering if Trudeau’s (sorry, Butts’) plan isn’t to let B.C. continue to block pipelines while giving measured support to Alberta, culminating in a conversation something like this. NOTLEY: Justin, you have to do something. BC’s being complete...

Conservatism is in a crisis. The “big shift” turned out to be an aberration, and the Laurentian elites are back in control. Oil is out, and Bombardier is in. The victory the Reform Party and its successors had won in challenging Central Canadian statism has turned out to be short-lived, and Millenni...

Hmm, suddenly this thread seems a lot more relevant. ;) Seriously though, you know it’s bad when a Trudeau has to come in and take Alberta’s side (or at least appear to). It’s a bit of a cynical move on his part. Be seen as supporting Notley and the oilsands in an attempt to keep big bad Jason Kenne...

Food studies though have a major drawback. In any study, you have to give one population the thing you are trying to study, and another population something else, called a 'control'. In a 'double blind' study, even the people carrying out the tests don't know which population gets which. This way t...

Throw in that climate is like most other science, in that it's subject to change if better data comes along, and people see it. Good point. You see this especially in food-related science. This week’s miracle food becomes next week’s poison (or at least loses it’s shine). Caffeine has gone from vil...

What if the climate change taking place was not man-made, but rather a completely natural occurrence? How would our response to it differ if humans weren’t “at fault”? The answer, of course is - we would try to see if there were a technological fix or an easy behavioural change that would avoid the ...

Straw man nonsense. I oppose the excesses of left-wing identity politics, and reject the doctrine of collective guilt, and that makes me indistinguishable in your eyes from a white supremacist or a Christian theocrat? For one thing, I’m an atheist. And secondly, I am an individualist. I don’t consi...

Meanwhile ultra-conservatives such as yourself resent the existence of everyone not willing to accept the inherent supremacy of a conservative straight white Christian male. The difference is that liberal belief in diversity means they tolerate even the people they resent; whereas conservatives bel...

Contrary to the popular perception, many on the Canadian left are not opposed to bigotry. They are simply selective about the types of bigotry they endorse, specifically, that against Western Canadians (especially in the prairie provinces), rural Canadians and the overtly (non-closeted) Christian. B...
