Wada, I tend to agree with you. Doing away with political parties is a better option than entrenching rigid partisan group think. Currently, the discussion of electoral change is centred squarely on proportional representation, which I see as a move away from the focus on the candidate's accountabil...

Yes, mtbr, I have been elected as a non partisan public School Trustee three times 1992, 1995 and 1998. I was a card carrying progressive conservative who voted against the "union" with the Reform-Alliance party. After Stephen Harper began to employ the tactics, I describe as in opposition...

I just read a piece by Frances Russell from today's Winnipeg Free Press. In it she(?) details the growing gender gap in support between Liberals and Conservatives. She cites many examples of behavior and decisions of the Conservatives, including Stephen Harper, that she think contributed to women's ...

Scape the original Refooorrm Party of Canada members were definately not Liberals. They were very well intentioned citizens who believed that political power should reside in the grassroots. Somewhere along the way the power seeking indiviuals began to gain control and the end result is Stephen Harp...

What I notice on this forum, and others, is that some participants are not using the opportunity to flog their values, issues, concerns or opinions but they are posting strategically to drown out others voices. It has the effect of shutting down discussion or simplistically polarizing the communicat...

FYI hockey fans this has some relevance to the game Stephen Harper was born in Toronto and attended school in the Etobicoke area. He first came to Alberta in 1978. From Wikipedia He(Harper) is an avid fan of ice hockey and of the Calgary Flames, although on a October 4, 2006 Toronto Maple Leafs game...

mtbr It is a fact that this new conservative government is an entirely different fish than the progressive conservative party. That is the point, not mud slinging. To my mind the removal of the photos of the previous conservative Prime Ministers, including Sir John A, and replacing them with many ph...

Born in New Brunswick. My four children were all born and raised in Calgary. My guess is that you may support the Reform Party. I am basing that on your style of communication. For the rest of the country, the Progressive Conservative party was a great national party that did focus on the economy an...

I first came to Calgary in 1966. I left the PC party to join the LPC in 2005. Left the Habs fan section and joined the Flames in 1980 I have been red all along, my political party was devoured and I am still mourning the loss. I supported Dion because I believed and still do that he can and will cha...

Sorry guys I thought I was posting in the intros section.
But it looks like mtbr is right Flames are off to San Jose.

Does that mean you are transplanted from Edmonton?
