Doubt it, the issue has been going on for far longer, weathering both good relations and bad.

Hope there are some MPs or friends-of reading this: - Canadians ought to be able to borrow tax-free from their own RRSP to implement any recommendations from a home energy audit, in the same way the HBP allows borrowing from your RRSP towards principle in your first home purchase. - Canadians ought ...

Some astounding quotations in a newspaper of record: "Ms. Carney believes that Ottawa should order a freeze on all American investments in Canadian energy companies, claiming it is in the interest of national security." "“There is a strong case to be made that when you're dealing with...

"This doesn't include idiocies like growing bananas in hothouses. " People in florida eat Ontario hothouse tomatoes, dare to dream, Ed! :-) What if fuel and transportation costs operated according to something remotely resembling an actual free market? What if foreign banana growers were s...

First, a somewhat cynical question for historians: to what extent was King George's Royal Proclamation philosophical in nature, and to what degree was it coerced by the empire's financial situation? Ideas, enlightened and otherwise, abound in any society which is reasonably free. I might cynically p...

"That's what protectionism is about - screwing over ourselves as consumers for the benefit of us as employees." No, that's cronyism or oligarchy. "Protectionism" (applied in the proper spirit) is about applying domestic laws equally to foreign producers, or in lieu of the ability...

OK, first, I forgot to log in, sorry, not anon. Second, I keep getting called a "neo-con", and I need to figure out why. I just posted a message which clearly contests the very fabric of our "free" trade agreement, using the argument that such agreements are really less "fre...

First, some questions in general, based on the letter from the minister: "Canada enjoyed a surplus in its bilateral merchandise trade with the U.S. of $139.3 billion on total Canadian merchandise exports of $348.2 billion. Moreover, the flow of direct U.S. investment brings with it new technolo...

I'll be clearer: as long as the federal government is legally required to reimburse all valid medical claims (plus cost-to-carry), and as long as government is legally required to be the lender-of-last-resort in financing medical expenses, who cares if the actual service provider is public or privat...

Yes, the protectionist, statist, monopolist, public-invests-then-winner-gets-sold-to-a-foreign-owner cronyism that characterizes Canada SINCE free trade is muuucch better. Now we get to treat the new, foreign "cronies" as Canadian nationals where *their* interests are concerned, but we hav...

I do agree with the above post in one respect: a Canadian citizen should *never* be LEGALLY PREVENTED from acquiring timely access to otherwise available doctor-ordered care because 1) the insurer refuses to pay; or 2) the provider is unable to provide. Public or otherwise. This suggests a possible ...

I certainly don't want to admit defeat to the corporations, but the strategy for public health care must be mindful of the lengths to which they will go to promote their interests. Always assume there are politicians in each major party sympathetic to their agenda. Some of these corporations, especi...
