Read the fucking article. And find out WTF they're referring to. They don't . The article does say... The committee on the elimination of racial discrimination monitors a convention to end racial discrimination signed by countries including Canada, and is calling for a suspension of the Trans Mount...

First, Northern Gateway would have gone through indigenous land that was never ceded to the crown. We can't take more land from them. Cancelling that was a good decision. Trans Mountain Pipeline expansion is a pipe beside an existing oil pipeline, there is no new impact. And the oil terminal will be...

Weak and stupid. Actress Jennifer Lawrence had nude photos released to the internet. Embarrassing but she continued. Quitting her job is a betrayal of all those campaign volunteers who worked to get her elected, and campaign donors who provided money. She has an obligation to all of them. Quitting i...

The map keeps reminding me of Judy Klassen. I was there after the AGM in Manitoba when she announced she was running federally. That was a very bad thing. The provincial party just barely had achieved party status. The first time since Sharon Carstairs 1988-1995. Dougald Lamont had one the 4th seat ...

Trudeau just finished a press conference. He repeated TMX will be built. Period. Good thing, some pundits keep repeating it would be cancelled. If it were cancelled, expect Alberta to proceed with separation. It's that important. But no worry, Trudeau gets it, this will be built. (grumble grumble gr...

And I love your optimism. ;) MPs will never pass recall legislation, any more than they are going to get rid of FPTP.

Minority government would be the perfect time to do it.

BC passed provincial recall legislation in 1990. This demonstrates it can be done.

I was talking Proportional Representation. You are talking ranked ballots. You made my point for me. ;) If the CPC got 45% of the popular vote in PR, they would have 45% of the seats. They don't. I thought ranked ballots/STV were a form of PR. [huh] Single Transferable vote is one form of Proportio...

Quebec in 1867 is not what Quebec is today ... I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure 1905 Alberta is the same as today True, but Alberta is not what it was when it was created as a district of the Northwest Territories in 1882. If you argue Quebec should give up Ungava, that same argument could dem...

I sent an email to Alberta Premier Rachel Notley about using the Portland pipeline. I got a canned response, obviously she didn't read it. It was during the Alberta provincial election. So after the election, I sent a similar message to the office of Jason Kenney. I received a response from a staffe...

Didn't know you ran! Kudos for trying! Thanks. I tried again this year, we had a contested nomination. But starting this election the Liberal party requires a $1,500 fee for every contestant for the nomination. If there's more than one, they all have to pay. It's non-refundable. I lost my job as a ...

If Canada had PR, we’d probably see more coalitions and the likely combinations would not include the Tories unless they got an outright majority. They are quite different from the other parties in their policies. Traditionally Liberals and Progressive Conservatives have both been in the centre. Bo...

My first reaction: we spent months campaigning, a lot of people put in a hell of a lot of work, and we spent copious quantities of cash, yet the final result was what I could have predicted a year ago! What have we accomplished? Judy Klassen quit as a provincial MLA in Manitoba to run federally in t...

Today is Election Day. I hope everyone is going to vote. I got a job as an election official so can't say how I'll vote. The location where I work happens to be the same place where I vote, so at some point in the day I'll walk over to the next table to vote.

Vote! It gives you the right to complain.
