"you want quebecer be at your knees??" Jesus optimum, are you serious?? The whole intent of these debates and this forum is to reenforce the basic priciple and idea that WE'RE ALL EQUAL AND ALWAYS HAVE BEEN. We're all answerable to each other here and exposed to getting trolled. See the po...

Ah there's nothing like a slow day at work. Oh ya. The nation thing? No you're not. See how that works? It's called propaganda. Just because you had some shmoe stand up on stage (elected or no) and tell you one thing doesn't mean it's so. It's kind of like the internet in that sense, I guess. It's d...

huh. I gotta check these things more often. Amazing what a slow day at work and a location next to the coffe machine will do. fire_I: Don't mistake my contempt to the separtists as being one sided. I have plenty of contempt for the federalists, too. They contain xenophobic whackos, people from Ottaw...

If this stuff was in place when I went to elementry school my friends and I would have been in a lot of trouble. Air guns? What are they going to do next, ban rubber bands & tape? The two can be made to construct a projectile & launcher! Hide the scotch tape! The kiddies might get the wrong ...

Brenda, I say either pick one that will enhance our trade prospects (that's easy to learn) or simply pick a native language. We could speak it anywhere and nobody would know what the hell we were saying - not too practical maybe, but it could on occasion be hilarous. I work with guys from all across...

I like it the way it is. Why? There's some deal making required and some real blood on the ice whenever somebody wants a motion passed. You want your representation to matter? A minority government will do it as long as your representative can be the holdout on an item or two. The rep gets what his ...

NATO committment aside it would make sense to define the word "victory" here wouldn't it? Establish some meaningful(?) benchmarks for Canada as a mission, meet them, declare victory and leave. Certain highways repaved, schools rebuilt, government infrastructure operations established, poli...

Nah, strictly caffiene paired with trying to post a work. The point is that while the House of Commons is painted as a "strictly" represenation - by-population setup it obviously isn't so and can't be. For any province that small to be convinced that they are part of a country they have to...

Is that the best you can do? I thought I'd ask before berating you... Ah, why bother... OK dumnut, since I can't get you a book with big pictures and pop ups I'll do my best to explain using really, really small words. The next time you're out stealing stereos around the trailer park, look in the gl...

I really don't think that the US is going to be too thrilled with the idea. Really, with the Queen and our prime ministers all over their money? Kind of mocks their civil war, don't you think? 1.) Control over our economy. With 10% of the population of the US we would effectively be surrendering our...

Anyone who figures this is a good idea needs to take a look around. Alberta has sucked cash out of the east for decades before this, and now people want to run? I'd have to say that's the epitome of greed & stupidity. Accepting the fact that you're part of something bigger than your province is ...

"That's a lame argument. One can learn ALL of the above and a lot more without joining the military! I did however learn how to make some very serious weapons out of some rather innocuous materials." True, but were you any good at it? If you want to be really good at these sorts of things,...

A.) The more I read on these threads the more I think that the Bloc supporters fall into 2 general groups: 1.) people who don't think that current federal parties represent what they want; solution - pick one, load it with candidates that support your views. Believe it: Harper and Dion are waiting f...

" In the States we have Universities that specialize in agriculture. What are the Canadian counterparts?" University of Guelph (it started as an ag college), U of Sask., U of Alberta, plus a pile of regional colleges (off the top of my head). Not sure about the east coast, but I'm sure the...
