  3. I don't share your negative outlook. When I was a child, living in British Columbia, racism was accepted. First Nations people did not have the right to vote. People of African, Japanese and Chinese descent were decriminated against and that was seen as okay. Jews were denied entry to many clubs, restaurants and businesses. In the area I lived in in the west Kootenays, Doukhobors were shunned. Can you imagine that a community like that who are devoted to peace and devotion were looked down on by their neighbours. In 1975, a student at the U of S came out as gay and the Faculty Association executive met to have him expelled. Fortunately, the President of the Faculty Association spoke up and explained if the student was forced to leave for being a homosexual, so would he, for the same reason. Crime is down. Racism still exists but it has undergone a dramatic decline since I was a kid. We are living in a country that is blessed with the bounty God gave us. We live in peace. Our standard of living is incredible, compared to any other country. Our spiritual life is evolving, but God doesn't give a rat's pajamas how you lable yourself. It only cares that you treat others in the manner you would wish to be treated.

  4. https://edition.cnn.com/2023/05/15/politics/read-durham-report/index.html Well we'll well...the FBI had no cause to investigate Trump and the Great Russia Collusion Hoax. And now...Wray thinks he can slime his way out of this by tossing Comey under the bus. What a pack of dirt bags the US FBI and CIA are. Not to mention Barry and Ol" Joe, who it now appears knew this was all horseshit to begin with. Libbies...this is your leadership. Your media...you Libbies can be held responsible for truly warping the law and destruction of democracy. Not "MAGA"...not Trump...not even Tucker Carlson. You are responsible for this filth. I hope you all choke on it.

  6. "Woke" doesn't mean anything. It's a buzzword that right-wing politicians use. The closest definition that "wokeness" has is just anything conservatives don't like, which they were already against before they started calling it "wokeness." What this poll really shows is that modern conservative voters don't care about the issues. They care about Trump and "owning the libs." The Right has always been wrong on the issues, but today's Right is just psychotic. And just in case you're thinking that some of them care about guns, Trump banned bump stocks. His supporters only claim he was pro-gun because he claims he is. It's really just a cult at this point.

  7. Tony Keller lays it all out pretty clearly in this Globe and Mail column. Canada's emissions constitute 1.5% and falling. China's emissions have been increasing at the rate of Canada's ENTIRE emissions every two years. Think about that, those so anxious about the oilsands emissions. The oilsands represent 11% of Canada's emissions. So China alone is adding almost 5 of them every single year! Five new oilsands pop up in China every year! And China isn't alone. Throughout the developing world other countries, India, Malaysia, and Vietnam, all of them are increasing their emissions. The developing world now represents 70% of CO2 emissions and they are not slowing down. They're growing them as fast as possible, adding more coal plants every year. We're going to bankrupt ourselves making our energy ever more expensive, punishing Canadians and Canadian corporations, punishing Canadian manufacturers so they move to places with no carbon taxes and cheap energy like uh, Vietnam and China and India and Malaysia - while the rest of the world is building coal plants. We're putting every roadblock we can in the way of developing and exporting natural gas that could cause some of those countries to ditch coal while seeking to close down as much of our energy industry as possible. For what? It's not going to help a goddam thing. All it is is virtue signaling. It's so Trudeau can stand on a stage, lift his chin and look smug and noble. Take China. It is now the biggest polluter, by far. Its emissions more than doubled between 2002 and 2010, as Canada’s flatlined. China’s emissions grew at a pace equivalent to adding an extra Canada’s worth of carbon into the atmosphere each year, for eight years in a row. China’s growth has since slowed; it’s now adding new carbon emissions at rate of one Canada every two years. China produces a third of the world’s emissions, more than all of the developed world. That’s more than 20 times Canada’s carbon output. And China has company. India’s emissions, barely higher than Canada’s in 1990, now equal those of the EU. Indonesia, whose emissions were a third of Canada’s in 1990, is now a bigger polluter than us. Or consider Vietnam. I travelled the country for a few dollars a day in the 1990s when its official name, the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, still meant something. There were no bank machines, the national airline flew Soviet jets inherited from defunct East Germany, cars were a rarity and electricity demand was minimal. In 1990, Britain’s carbon output was more than 2,500 per cent larger than Vietnam’s. By 2021, the two countries were level – because Britain nearly halved its emissions, while Vietnam’s carbon output increased 16-fold. https://archive.is/xMAEs

  9. I am going to propose a solution that might be laughable to the everyday political man and woman out there, however here it is: 4 divisions of sports: 1. men's 2. women's 3. trans men's 4. trans women's. Then, if people care about their identity as trans, do the work there and slowly bring forward your ideas, if one drives a fast train into society, then the reaction comes, is just the reality.

  11. The Justice Department investigated Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation for four full years, from the time of Trump’s inauguration until the end of 2016. This was discovered as the result of information just released from a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. Despite four years of investigation, no grand juries or indictments resulted. So next time you hear Trumpers whining about “political witch hunts,” remember that Trump ran his own witch hunt for four solid years. https://www.nytimes.com/2023/05/22/us/politics/fbi-clinton-foundation.html?smid=nytcore-ios-share&referringSource=articleShare

  12. Gerald Butts advised Trudeau that this is the most effective way to appeal to those simple minds that think a tax can change the weather. Trudeau's arrogance does not allow him to give a rats ass about the economic consequences, so long as he can stay in power.

  13. You can't spam the board with 30+ posts a day and then accuse anyone of following you. Not only are you near-impossible to avoid on account of your shitting up the whole forum all day, how could I possibly keep on top of all of it when I can (apparently?) only type with two fingers? 🤔 I jumped into a conversation where you were already engaged in a fight...which is the majority of the threads you post in, which also happens to be the majority of the threads on this forum. That bolded part is incoherent nonsense. I would have loved to be in your head when you typed out that gem.

  14. Let me echo the hard fact that George Santos is a criminal and a serial liar. He is unfit to serve in Congress. The Constitution allows people like him to be removed, but the GOP would rather keep a criminal in their midst than demonstrate integrity.

  16. David Johson, whose lifelong fascination with China, his eagerness to forge closer ties with them, his complete lack of concern for their authoritarian government, his lifelong friendship with Trudeau, and his membership in the Trudeau foundation made him the perfect "unbiased" candidate to investigate possible Chinese interference and Liberal wrongdoing today announced that everything is wonderful, no member of the government had any knowledge of anything, and by the way, visit China! It's a great tourist destination! Oh, he did express deep concern about the information from CSIS getting out to the grimy public, and said the government must work hard at finding the dastardly traitor who seeks to damage the harmonious relationship between Canada and his beloved China. He will, however, conduct 'public hearings' where people chosen for their proper views will get to make those views known while he listens and looks thoughtful while conducting further fat paycheques. https://nationalpost.com/news/canada/no-public-inquiry-david-johnston-to-instead-conduct-public-hearings-on-foreign-interference

  25. Doubt it. The church and its clergy have been intolerant pricks for a lot longer than they've been sensitive and caring. In my mother's time, you could hear a gentle sermon from one church and thundering denunciations and threats of eternal damnation in another. Depends on the mindset of the priest.

  26. Well we know from the Freedom Convoy that this government will toss out our rights and introduce martial law if the opposition gets too vocal. Canada is riding on the coattails of the past generations who built this country and its democratic institutions, while also denigrating these ancestors and tearing down their statues. Even the greatest unifying achievements like Vimy are being erased by the cultural revolutionaries. A weak-minded wannabe actor and supply teacher is dividing Canadians against each other and claiming to rescue Canada from a shameful past. The truth is that Canada has gone downhill since the Trudeau Liberals came to power, really downhill.

It is the gayest form of written communication, after all.🙄 But seriously, Republican presidential candidate DeSantis is doing his damnedest to create a state in which ideas outside of white, heteronormative, heterodoxy cannot be spoken in schools. Small government, and all...

  29. Loss of life for covid under Biden wasn't much better. Biden had a vaccine to work with. Trudeau caused underlying issues. Trumps were blatant. One thing he did not cause, was unnecessary panic. Trudeau caused unnecessary crises with all the lockdowns and fear mongering, from unprecedented levels of drug overdoses, homelessness and women seeking shelter further alienated in abusive relationships. Trump is a bull in a China shop. Trudeau is a clumsy kid running with a box of eggs. Only difference, is one is better at hiding the damage that they have done. What you also won't know until later, are all the people with cancer, who stopped screening not due to shortages, but due to guilt. Fear. Doctors were pleading. The amount of people with serious mental health issues, exacerbated by Trudeaus policies. I have seen several people I know, who are now homeless. Had jobs prior to the pandemic.

  33. You have it backwards Michael. Western society is not built on a "pluralistic confederation" specifically. Western society was built on Judeo-Christian civilization and culture. That is where democracy and human rights came from. We don't need this diversity-inclusion nonsense as if something new is being invented. Simple go back to basic Christian principles of love for thy neighbour and respect for individuals. Everyone should be treated the same, with respect. No need to single out one group for special treatment as they are doing now. Just teach respect and love for every individual.

  34. I don't understand how I need to fly a flag to state I won't discriminate. My workplace has a zero tolerance approach to bullying and discrimination. I don't understand how one must fly an LGBTQ flag to say this. Teach kids to respect each other. One doesn't need to be force fed sexuality and the like, to be a decent human.

  35. Trudeau couldn't have prevented covid, nor prevented damage from it. I think any leader would have struggled during such unprecedented times. Where I feel we are worst off, is Trudeau's deliberate divisiveness. I have never seen a more divided country in my entire life. Things are slowly getting back to normal, but I don't think there ever will be a fully normal ever again. I see a nation that has only up to go. The current leadership isn't the right one for that task.

  46. Here is a reality that none seem to be wrap their minds around... A people, tribe, nation, etc. will ALWAYS prefer the inferior rule of themselves to the possibly (superior) rule of another. Colonialism may have brought certain nations out of the past and so you would think that these nations would be grateful. The first statement shows why they are not and hence why they fight for independence.

  47. 1) There really was a Covid pandemic 2) The vaccines really were tested and they really are effective. The only problem is you can’t handle math past the second grade level. 3) Breaking a window AND bear-spraying police officers AND beating police officers with spears AND overrunning active sessions of Congress in order to stop a Presidential election from being carried out is sedition. 4) The shooting of Michael Brown was every bit as justifiable as the shooting of Ashlii Babbit. So put that in your pipe and smoke it. 5) Tucker Carlson is definitely a racist.
