Good God all we need is join the United States. Entertainment Tonight qualifies for prime time news with those people. I would never want to be an American and I sure as hell wouldn't want to incorperate millions of people here to change our way of live. Oh we seem to be doing that on our own aren't...

In WW11 Germany was able to take the Balkans, and much of Eastern Europe. They controlled the cities in many cases, but the underground kept their freedom alive. Yugoslavia ruled a group of nations for decades, as a country of compromise and today, the nations have regained their rightful place on t...

Oh hell it all comes down to the heat of the moment and all this will be forgotten in a very short time. It should be remembered the Tories also tried to make deals with the Bloc to oust then PM Martin. The coalition is not a bad idea actually as long as they keep it Liberal NDP. The Bloc is not par...

Actually it was legal to put the motion forward, stupid but legal. It was also legal for the opposition to form a coalition and in a parliamentary democracy, it is constitutional to do what they did. The way they did it was stupid but legal. The opposition should have formed their alliance and said ...

You are kidding right, if they had more votes they would have a majority. Little matter, the opposition has the power to rid ourselves of the Conservative agenda and Harper knows he screwed it up and now the game is about up, The opposition parties have been waiting for a reason and he gave them one...

This stuff is silly to say the least. Immigration is the life blood of this country, my family came here from Scotland a couple of centuries ago and I don't feel threatened by anyone. I suppose its because I have made friends with people from all over the world. What do immigrants want, a better edu...

What is great about this is that the conservatives can only seem to gather a minority, with the strength of the Bloc in Quebec. Therefore Tories can elect who ever they want, and as soon as they introduce the right wing stuff we can dispose of them with a coalition, works for me. This has only happe...

I would not want to have the American system that is for sure. And I don't mind paying for what we have at all. People always get upset about taxes, but cheap taxes or tax reductions are not a good thing at all. The reason, eventually we have to pay for the services that were cut previously. All the...

The system of stv will never work for one very good reason, political people will simply mark one name on the ballot and leave the rest blank The same system is used in municipal voting we have 8 votes with 32 people running. I will only vote for 3 and deprive others from my vote. The stv system or ...

Diefenbaker was the worst, he was a mean spirited little man with not much for a brain. The problem with Pierre, is that he was too far ahead of his time, and likely one if not the best we had. Lyin' Brian, was not much either, he sold us out but he wasn't the worst I don't know of any Conservative ...

Regardless of who is sort of right, the fact is in rich voting land, Quebec and Ontario the Tories are starting to sag as is the Block. In short we are looking at decided voters here, and the undecideds will determine the outcome of any eventual vote. I don't like the proposed carbon tax or any carb...

To start with some wars are necessary due to the makeup of the world at the time in history. The Second World War is a prime example. The Afghan conflict is also on the road of doing the right thing. Iraq however is another matter. This war was brought on soley on the belief system of the Republican...

Why should it be we have only a western view? Over the years the western powers did a hell of a lot more nasty things to the Arabs than they did to us. In fact the reason we are having trouble now is revenge for what has happened over the past several decades. I don't like the terrorists anymore tha...

I for one have always supported the concept of ICBC and I hope they never allow the private companies back in here in any measure. At least when I have a problem I get my money without having to go through a series of private insurance scavengers like I did before government insurance came into bein...

The spirit that made them legal was simply, its the womans right to chose and apparently they are chosing not to have children. There was no ideal under what conditions, it came down to a legal ruling by the supreme court and a free vote in parliament god know how long ago. In the context of the rul...
