And the Charlottetown Accord. That one also recognized Quebec as a "distinct society". Voters rejected it in the referendum. Quebec is one province among 10, each province has it's own unique culture and character, the original constitution of 1867 gave provinces the authority and responsi...

Your graph shows global temperatures have gone up with CO2. The chart shows mean temperature ahs increased by 0.5-0.6°C about 1930 to 2005. That's 75 years to heat something as large as our planet. The most dramatic increase has been from 1987. This coincides with CO2 increase, there is an effect. T...

This is so petty! I expected elected officials to behave as adults when in the House of Commons. Yelling over a minister while she's giving a speech is neither acceptable nor forgivable. We need some basic decorum in the chamber. The individuals yelling were of both the Liberal and Conservative part...

This chart gives a strong corelation between CO2 and temperature, shown over the last 150,000+ years. Methane is also charted, and shows CO2 and methane moving together. http://pubs.acs.org/hotartcl/est/99/apr/0043-99scho1.ev.gif It comes from Learning From Polar Core Ice Researc...

I'll have to look this up and get back to you, I have to get back to work now, but grainfedprairieboy I am impressed. I'm known as a bit of a brain on one message board that has members from all over t...

CO2 isn't the strongest greenhouse gas, it's just the one for which we have measured concentrations over multiple ice ages. Did you know that ice cores from the Greenland ice field show weather went from the temperature climate we have today to a full ice age in just 10 years? Many scientists though...

Oops. People stopped posting. Don't let me stop you, I really want to hear what you have to say. I feel the debt can be paid in a reasonable time, then we can completely eliminate one major tax; which tax is the question. But what do you think? As for only paying down to 25% of the current debt leve...

The Conservative plan deals entire with vehicles. They don't contribute the majority of pollution. What about all those coal burning power plants in Alberta? I worked for TransAlta from November 1995 through June 1996. They produced all the power for southern and central Alberta, including Calgary a...

The GST is not even being used to pay down the debt solely. It has itself tied in other programmes. GST takes in about 28 billion dollars every year. So when we have this so called surplus which was this year what 13.2 billion going down towards our debt? Where is the other 15 billion going? If GST...

You've forgotten the Capital Gains tax, good sir. :) Capital Gains tax is a line item on your Income tax. If you eliminate Income tax, you eliminate Capital Gains tax. From the Department of Finance website: capital gain An increase in the money value of a capital asset such as a share, bond, parce...

I set a limit of 30 days for this poll. Let's stay on target, the fourth option is to slowly pay down the debt while slowly reducing tax. This won't free much money because tax reductions mean there won't be much available to make payments to the debt, and slow debt reduction mean the interest won't...

Assume for the moment that the government was able to completely pay off the debt. Which tax would you eliminate? There are 3 major federal taxes: Personal Income tax, Corporate Income tax, GST. Once the debt is gone you can get rid of one, but not two and certainly not all three. The government nee...
