Who issues the bonds? I don't think the feds should be in bed with industry/resource initiatives at all, that's how we got to where we are now. Definitely where Crown lands or resources are involved, the price of use (drilling, stumpage) should go up. Maybe we should just switch things around: The p...

"No country with resources needs any foreign investment. " Ed, while I'm generally sympathetic to your point of view I have to challenge here. Canada was built on foreign investment, or at least foreign lending. MacDonald borrowed massively to build the railroad west, else it could not hav...

"U.S. producers have claimed for decades Canadian exports are subsidized by low Crown timber-cutting fees and other policies, launching four trade actions since the early 1980s." Exactly how low are our stumpage fees? Trade wars aside, is the Canadian taxpayer being played for a sucker? Mo...

Man, I've heard this exact speech since the 1970's. Exactly how long does hell-in-a-handbasket take, anyway?

Bilateral agreements, especially short-term ones, will be worse! All the rules-are-for-the-weak nations (like the current U.S., notice I said "current") will just violate them at will and wait out the expiry. The principle is not to enter into such agreements with rules-are-for-the-weak na...

"Incidentally, the Alberta Conservatives are not considered “far to the right”. In Alberta they are considered centralist in policy and are often accused of being red Tory." Same goes for rural Ontario. If all those counties were a contiguous block they'd probably be agitiating to take the...

Why not put even a little bit of confidence in what the overwhelming majority of climate change scientists are suggesting, not just from computer models but also from empirical evidence like the Siberian thaw discussed in the article? How about even a fraction of the confidence that's placed in the ...

Is there not some clause in NAFTA that automatically triggers (at least) renegotiation if one party formally refuses to accept a panel ruling?

If not, we're the fools for, apparently unilaterally, binding ourselves to the NATFD (the North American Free Trade Disagreement).

Who are "the six"?

Do they have counterparts in the U.S.? (making their wealth portable from that country)

"Health risks" are a red herring, it's a shame some contributors fixate on it because that's exactly what the industry wants. There is only one question here: If your planting drifts and corrupts somebody's crop who doesn't want to grow GM canola, can they sue you? No, it's not the same as...

"Hence they offer excuses such as "it would cost too much"." A simple allocation survey included and required with your annual T1 to CCRA would suffice? Full referenda are indeed expensive, but if a government, forced to gather and publish this survey in exchange for getting our ...

There are two main issues with GMOs, health and environment are secondary:<br /> <br /> 1) government collaboration with big industry to create and maintain a market that, under honest competition, would not be able to support itself. Big Government regulation and approval is not maligne...

"How about coming up with some plausible evil corporate conspiracy theories?" OK, for the sake of argument, screw the health issue, and screw the environment issue. Are we to support efforts world-wide for a handful of mega-corporations, and a handful of national governments, to work toget...

Now you've got me alllll figured out. I also enjoy maple syrup, gave up both front teeth to a puck, and I greet people with "good day, eh?". "Like lemmings you accept whatever filters waaay down out of academia as “truth” without ever really bothering to question it or examine the “un...
