    Why do you hate freedom ?  People can dress how they want.  We're not the Talliban.  I'm tired of rightista snowflake sentiments being put out all the time without a response.

    If our PM wants to wear a dress, and thinks he can get away with it he can go ahead.  If somebody wants to wear a kippah I'm not going to have you tell them that they're not allowed to work for the civil service..

    Can we please get past this reactionary mode of politics ?  

    "When in Rome . . . "  Of course people can dress how they want. It's just that a leader should act/dress like a 'leader' . . .

    The sad fact is that Justin Trudeau (Mr. Dress-up) is not really recognized for his fabulous mind when he's dressed up in feathers or an outfit from India. Is he gaining respect as a 'world' leader when he's prancing around like a fool . . . 

    Nice deflection attempt leftista . . . .

    In an election, if your hardcore base doesn't show up, you're dead.

       *  Bernier has the core of real conservatives. 

    Scheer will have to leave asap, and I hope he gets shamed for what he has done to the Conservative Party. 

    Bernier has the core of real 'eastern' conservatives . . . .

    Sadly, the west no longer trusts any politician with a French background or accent.  

    If Bernier lived in Swift Currant, and spoke without a French accent . . . he'd kick Trudeau's sorry ass to the curb in a heartbeat.

    Scheer is a non-entity . . .

    Elizabeth May is a Connecticut Yankee, dictionary definition of.

    Protege of Hillary Clinton.

    The leader of the Green Party in Ontario, Mike Schreiner, another Yankee, this one from Kansas.

    The Green Party are carpetbaggers for the Democrat Party.

    They couldn't get elected in America, so they set off to dupe the useful idiots in Canada.

    She 'may' have an IQ off the top of the scale . . . but can't grasp the concept that the left shoe goes on the left foot.  Dumb as a stump !

    Oh, I know they can shorten this turnaround to 30 years and all wood goes for pulp; no problem.

    The problem is that this is not a replacement of the original tree / ecosystem.   First you have to wait for 50 years to get a tree of decent size; then this tree has to be left there for another 100 years to fulfill its purpose.

    The way we do it; we take away those 150-200 year old trees ; plant the shrubbery and in 45 years just when we are  about to have a forest, we remove it again.    No, this doesn't work for the climate and the environment.

    You have no clue as to modern logging practices . . . or forest ecology. It's pointless discussing forestry with folks like you.  Carry on!

    The tree you cut today can be 'replaced' by an identical tree in 100 years (if what you cut was 100 years old).  Just putting a few seeds in the ground that grow into a little bush in a few years is not a replacement.


    The 'turnaround on coastal Douglas fir is about 45 years.  On large logging claims like on Vancouver Island, you can log most of the year and never run out of wood.

  6. A very disturbing trend in Canada now is that Justin Trudeau's behavior and lies have become 'acceptable' . . . more disturbing yet is his cabinet of brain-dead penguins have accepted his criminal behavior and have surrounded and support him. Those same brain-dead penguins have a lesser grasp of 'ethics' than their leader . . . . this country is in deep shit.

    Bear in mind it was not the British who gave her the name Iron Lady.

    It was the Soviets who named her that, they were the ones who saw her steel first.

    The British at the time called her The Grocers Daughter.  

    Which she of course wore as a badge of honour, she never actually referred to herself as the Iron Lady, she was proudly The Grocers Daughter.

    She was more of a man than our PM.  Selfies with Maggie ? . . . . I don't think so.

    Liked her.

    Sure, let's have rules and norms about exaggerating... but 'the other side' is always expected to go first.  

    Careful now Michael . . . you're risking the 'Wrath of Chuckie' with your reply above.  Sarcasm, humour, and the 'give & take' comments between concerned Canadians is strictly forbidden.

    Would have put a few emoji faces in this post, but that would imply that this post was in fact meant to be humorous . . . . and thus another suspension.

    Happy Labour Day to my fellow Canadians . . . be safe, and have fun.

    October 21st is fast approaching . . . be involved, please vote !

  9. So Quebec threatens to separate . . . 

    The northern First Immigrants (FI) will never let that happen . . . everything is locked up in land claims, and they know that the money faucet will slow to a drip because the separated Quebec'ers have been 'no visible means of support'  for them to tap into.

    Quebec was a strip along the St. Lawrence when it became a province, territory, pain in the ass, whatever . . . that should be what they leave with.

    What have they ever contributed to the welfare of this country . . . . it's best if the rest of the country 'helps' them leave . . . just like the rest of the country has paid to have them stay. 

    Quebec is just a bad investment . . . Ontario a little less so.

    Again, in the information age, Ontario is the source of wealth and power, Alberta beef is worth less all the time, as less people are eating beef all the time.

    The Canadian industrial economy is transitioning into irrelevance, but as the industrial workers are laid off in Oshawa, information workers are being hired in Mississauga, so it's all good,

    Again, Ontario produces nothing that can't be done elsewhere in Canada . . .

    Completely immaterial point.  There's no exception for enriching yourself based on salary.

    If President Trump were to donate all monies spent at the G7, say to crippled children  . . . hypothetical scenario. Would that be ok with you, or would you bitch about that too?

    1. Wait, are you saying Ontario produces close to nothing?

    2. Which Invaders?  Who do you think owns the oil companies, Albertans ?

    Ontario produces nothing that can't be done elsewhere in Canada . . .

    Other than a pile of politicians (Alberta beef leave piles too) and a real shitty hockey team, what does Ontario really have?  Oh, pardon me . . . Ontario has you and Dougie93 !   :rolleyes:

  13. Trudeau spends my tax dollars to rehabilitate ISIS shit-heads back into the Canadian 'cultural fabric' . . . . the USA next door, ISIS shit-heads here.  Would there be a connection ?

    It's quite enjoyable to watch the obvious contempt (words & actions) that Trump displays toward that pathetic clown in Ottawa.  

    'Go to Jail' . . . go directly to jail. Do not pass 'GO' . . . . 

  14. As mentioned before . . .

    Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia, Yukon, and northern territories . . . . viable country with Asian and European access. All the food and fuel to get it done.

    Quebec and Ontario need the west more than the west needs them. Who gives a rat's ass about them anyway ?

    So here is why I think Ontario (mostly the GTA) where most Ontarian live is not worth the high score.

    1) overpopulation - If you are in Toronto, Mississauga, Ajax etc., it would take you hours to get out of the city.   The rest is farmland and private property.  When I was there I could not get to the banks of creeks and rivers because the owners thought it was only them who were supposed to enjoy that.

    2) climate - high humidity that is almost unbearable in hot or cold conditions ; extreme cold weather in the winter (occasionally) with high wind chill factors

    3) scenery - there is the Niagara escarpment and the valleys of a few creeks with  a few parks around the place, nothing impressive.  Niagara Falls is congested during the season that the positives of seeing the place are outweighed by the negatives of getting there, finding a parking spot, fighting the crowds and paying high prices.   Fishing the Niagara river even in the coldest winter days can be busy.

    4) jobs - too many people, too much competition.  There are all those Temp labor agencies thriving on new comers; exploiting them to the max, to the benefit of the company owners and the government.

    There are probably more factors, but the above were enough for me to kiss the place good bye for good.

    Can't imagine living in a place like that . . .

    Relatively low elevation sump. Unbearable humidity . . . everything just drips. Not good for the respiratory system or your joints. Can't see any distance, also can't see anywhere that hasn't been 'fixed' by man. No long vistas, no pristine mountains, no wild coastal environment, no dry grasslands, no G-bears, no Mule deer, the list is long. But, the one thing that Ontario does have  . . . Dougie93 and Michael Hardner.  Lucky you ! B)

    So what if they are?

    The British are immigrants to Britain, come from North Germany, Norway and France.

    The Franks are immigrants to France, come from where Poland is to set up on the river Seine

    The Russians are immigrants to Russia, the Rus came from where Finland is, by way of Kiev.

    The Romans were immigrants to Rome, they were Greeks who set up a trading post at Ostia.

    No one is calling into question First Immigrants 'right' to a piece of the pie . . .

    "So what if they are?" . . . doesn't bother me, obviously bothers you . . .

    You refer to them as 'Indians' . . . . I refer to them as 'First Immigrants'. . . . they refer to themselves as 'First Nations' . . . . no big deal.

    Ontario may be the best place to live . . . enjoy your life there . . .

    I worked too many years in the rain.  I hate rain now.

    Perhaps not overpriced by global standards, but too pricey for me.

    BC is also seedy just under the Lotus Land facade of hippie dippie blah, blah, blah.

    BC is a little bit bigger than Greater Vancouver . . . rain on the coast in winter, sage brush/bunch grass, mountains, high plateaus . . . . few trees here and there.

    Maybe best that you stay where you're comfortable . . .
