Right? But at least our weather service and maintenance departments still work. In a way, we're lucky that one of the biggest issues on disaster relief in this country is arguing whether the military should really be involved in it. Of course, that's just what ivory tower eggheads like me are argui...

....I was a semi-pro musician for years..... See if your current garage band can do this one. You might have a reasonable facsimile of an Ashcroft in your group but I don't think any of you will be able to go full Nick McCabe wit' teh ghee-tar...... :mrgreen:

 Forum: Canadian Politics   Topic: Are Politicians' Lives Public Or Private?

One of the biggest stories in Canadian politics this summer was Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s separation from his wife Sophie. Ironically, much of the commentary has been about commentary itself, namely how the Canadian media pays a lot less private attention to politicians’ private lives than its...

I wonder if the problem with housing is kind of the same as healthcare-the provinces have primary responsibility for these things, but instead of actually doing their jobs better the premiers would rather just blame Trudeau. And if Trudeau and the feds actually did try and intervene more directly, m...

I'm surprised they didn't say anything about the Candice Bergen ad campaign. Those commercials were everywhere in the early 90s.

I wonder if the overturning of Roe Vs. Wade will go down as one of the biggest examples of "Be careful what you wish for!" in American history. The anti-abortion activists wanted this to be decided by the states themselves... ...and they are. Scape's video cites Republican activst Patrick ...

"Hey Canadian, you are standing on stolen land." Exsqueeze me? I baking powder? Every human being on this planet is standing on stolen land. I'm 100% behind the reconciliation agenda, but let's not kid ourselves that this was some uniquely abhorrent crime unprecedented in the annals of hu...

It's rather ironic for anyone to make an announcement like this on social media for all to see then ask for privacy... :roll: If Trudeau didn't do it that way, about a million other people would've done it for him. Sadly, he had to get in front of this. And social media is just a commonly accepted ...

No less than four of the Cabinet ministers Trudeau shipped off to the backbenches have already said they're not running again. It's just good sense to let them wind their careers down and give some fresher talent a chance to develop their skills. Some of the Cabinet members also had to be tossed bec...

Yeesh, just do a cheesy announcement on social media. There are plenty of graphical emojis, captions and other stuff that you can use for that. If you want to get together with other people in person, just have a house party or a picnic in a local park with no pyrotechnics.
