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...

DrCaleb DrCaleb:
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.

Saskanna Saskanna:
I also have trouble not believing that this security threat is just another of Trudeau's fantasies? The victim vote. A bit of Trudeau theatre which he is famous for.

My guess is the bullet-proof vest and RCMP tactical squad was in response to someone throwing an egg.

Wasn't it a LIBERAL government that ran on the policy of never implementing the GST but once elected, GST? I believe that was Jean Chretien. Liberals have been liars as long as I've been on earth. That's quite some time. Close but not quite. Mulroney replaced the FST with GST. We had FST since conf...

No, nothing can escape an event horizon once it's crossed, which is the key. If it hasn't been crossed, then yes, something with virtually infinite thrust and fuel can escape a black hole. No amount of thrust or fuel will allow for it to exit the event horizon because one needs to travel faster tha...

Wacko. It doesn't have to be that hard. Yes, space-time is warped. Gravity is not a force, it's an effect caused by warped space-time. But his explanation is demented. Yes, a spacecraft can escape an event horizon. Just apply enough thrust with enough fuel. The event horizon is the distance where es...
