  1. agreed but it's still shocking that they went into cover up mode while people were still being gunned down like I was an armed agent for the Canadian state but no bureaucratic directive would have stopped me from driving up & down warning people on the loudspeakers mission command, take the initiative, is how I was indoctrinated

  2. The system evolved that way because the government was sensitive to criticism by the mass media. In time that became more important than actually serving citizens. Providing good service to a single person probably won't even result in one vote, but ensuring good media coverage might earn you 1% in the election. There are structural reasons why Canada would be in a good position to fix this, as well as cultural ones. But has to stop is for citizens to combine politics with managing of our services. Politics should determine the high level approach and strategy to things, but services and focus on people needs to happen beyond the politics.

  3. this can have devastating consequences take for example this mass shooting down in Nova Scotia the level of incompetence by the RCMP is truly shocking like simple, common sense things they could have done, would have saved many lives there was no great barrier preventing them from saving people it was just bureaucratic inertia, and so many people died who could have easily been saved it's a tiny little town, they could have easily taken control of that situation people getting gunned down on the street, simply because the RCMP chose not to warn them a mass murderer driving around in a fake cop car and the RCMP decided that they shouldn't tell anybody about it that is the ethos of the Canadian bureaucracy the government is opaque, and they don't want to tell you what is going on, even to save your life

  4. The atmosphere has no boundaries. Coal is the worst thing you can burn to make power, not just for CO2 but for every toxic emission. Just because you can’t see something doesn’t mean it isn’t killing you. Even oil is better.

  5. Me too. Dale Carnegie is an influence on me. I get the most resistance from my team and managers though. We have 'internal' customers, meaning we are a service that deals with fellow employees. Too many don't take it seriously.

  6. my American side also takes pride in providing elite service I do quite well as a salesman in Canada, because I pull out all the stops I provide the service that I would want I treat you, the client or customer, as the most important person in the world, while we are doing business because you are the most important person in the world at that time, literally my livelihood that's my business ethic if a customer is unhappy because I have let them down, it bothers me, I lose sleep over it

  7. Canada has an archaic and unresponsive management culture. It follows from our fealty to the crown.... Never question, never discuss, never improve.

  8. it must be pretty bad, because it's un-Canadian to get riled up about bad service Americans get riled up about bad service, it's permissible in American culture but it is the Canadian culture that you just sit there and take it you can grumble to the guy next to you maybe but it's not Canadian to walk up to the counter and start telling them what for I actually do it all the time, but that's my American side and it surely ruffles the feathers in Canada Canadians are meek, submissive, they sell themselves short, they let themselves get walked on if you're an American, you think are a somebody and thus you deserve good service, you demand it and in fact, service is generally way better in America, it's expected in America

  9. well I know your instinct is to try to reason with people but what you are dealing with here is a mass formation psychosis inciting a civilizational collapse so you have about as much chance of reasoning with the left as you would trying to reason with the Third Reich

  10. It's in the news everyday that our healthcare system is struggling. Long wait times due to short staffs - and now, our government is actually inviting US abortion seekers to come to Canada! To jump the line? Everything we see on the news is bad news as far as Canada is concerned. It's unbelievable how fast this country is going down the drain!

  12. Sounds fascinating and I have heard the concepts in one shape and form or another. "Mining" coins by asking a computer to solve puzzles? C'mon! The computer solves what we can solve, only much faster. Then who is supposed to generate those new tasks for the coins to be mined, the computer is not generating them by itself?? In all honesty, I think it is a lot of mumbo-jumbo with technical concepts thrown in to baffle our brains. The realities are much simpler. And This is What I Think --------------------------------------------------------------------- "Well, then," said the fox, "You're quite sure you want to go home? Go then, and so much the worse for you." "So much the worse for you." repeated the cat "Think well of it Pinocchio, for you are throwing away a fortune." "A fortune" repeated the cat "Between today and tomorrow your five gold pieces would have become two thousand." "Two thousand" repeated the cat "But how is it possible that they will become so many?" asked Pinocchio, his mouth open wide in astonishment "I'll explain it to you at once." said the fox "You must know that in the Land of Fools there is a sacred field called the Field of Miracles. In this field you dig a little hole and you put into it, we'll say one gold piece. You then cover up the hole with a little dirt, water it with two pails of water from the fountain, sprinkle it with two pinches of salt, and then, when night comes, you go quietly to bed. During the night the gold piece will grow and flower, and in the morning, when you get up and return to the field, what will you find? You'll find a beautiful tree laden with as many gold pieces as a fine car of corn has kernels in the month of July" "Suppose," said Pinocchio more and more bewildered, "that I buried my five gold pieces in that field. How many would I find the following morning?" "That is an exceedingly easy calculation," replied the fox " a calculation that you can make on the ends of your fingers. Figure that every gold piece gives you an increase of five hundred. Multiply five hundred by five, and the following morning you would find two thousand five hundred shiny new gold pieces in your pocket." "Oh! How delightful!" cried Pinocchio dancing for joy "As soon as I've collected those gold pieces I will keep two thousand for myself and make a present of the other five hundred to both of you." "A present to us?" cried the fox sounding much offended. "Don't be absurd!" "Don't be absurd!" repeated the cat "We don't work for our own gains." said the fox. "We work only to enrich the lives of others." "Others" repeated the cat "What good people" thought Pinocchio. And instantly forgetting his father, the new coat, the spelling book and all his good resolutions, he said to the fox and the cat, "Let's be off at once! I will go with you." ---------------------------------------------------------------------

  14. There's just one flag we could fly over everyone that covers everything called universal human rights but since the phrase universal human rights = communism to you idiots everyone's had to get a little militant to keep you off their backs. It a real fucking chore too. You people really like going out of your way to make everything suck.

  15. One of the consequences of an extreme bureaucracy such as Canada has is the long lineups when arriving at an airport from outside Canada. They have something called the ArriveCan app which you must have on your smart phone (if you have one). This is a bureaucratic requirement which you must use when you arrive. It has been found to contribute to the slow processing of people arriving from outside Canada. The government refuses to remove it even though countless mayors and other authorities have been begging for the government to remove it so travelers can move at a more normal rate. Another example of bureaucratic bungling is the rescuing of Afghan refugees who worked for the Canadian Forces. The government claimed they would take in 40,000 Afghan refugees but so far it is only a fraction of that. There have been endless reports of very slow government processing of paperwork and difficulty of Afghans obtaining a VISA. Of course we see the horrendous problems people are having trying to get passports where they have been lined up for days at a passport office. Another example of bureaucratic bungling and inability to adapt the system to the circumstances.

  17. There are alternatives to burning coal for power in the US. This suit was brought by the coal industry. Go to fucking Beijing and then tell me wanting to get rid of coal is virtue signaling.

  18. I don't know if its actually an improvement but we don't make fun of Newfies anymore because when I was a boy, Newfies were still like foreigners every joke was a Newfie joke, we picked on the Newfies relentlessly we were still picking on them in the army back in the 90's but the idea that Newfies are a bunch of foreigners seems to have evolved out of existence I haven't heard a Newfie joke for many years now

  21. I never actually embraced the Liberal Party of Canada flag I've always thought it was silly the American, British, Australian, New Zealand colours all steeped in history, the story of their people then here comes the goofy Liberal flag it has no history to it at all it was picked by a committee in a mail in contest back in 1965 same thing with the Liberal Party of Canada song they just changed the words to make it woke, arbitrary decision of the leftist lunatic Liberals it's not your anthem, it's the anthem of the Liberal Party of Canada

  22. Not a pretty picture at all. I’ve mostly ignored crypto currency, bitcoins and the like. I heard that Trump does not favour bitcoin, and I wondered why, but at least I looked it up. I could not really understand how it was made or valued, so I stayed away, never tried to invest in it. I think that’s a maxim of sorts, only invest in industry or business that you are knowledgeable about? Anyway, I started to favour precious metals. In these times many things are uncertain. I don’t possess the knowledge that some of you have, but silver and gold are not as complicated as Bitcoin. Unless I am missing something!

  23. People complain about the destruction of civilian buildings in Ukraine, and they praise Zelenski's civilian 'freedom fighters', but they don't understand that when people fire at uniformed troops from schools, hospitals, etc, they're actually committing war crimes, and forcing the Russians to fire back at them. The fact that the Ukrainians are using ambulances to move their Nazi soldiers around isn't surprising.
