  1. What part of the bill is unconstitutional?
  2. It should when the other parties each have less than 40% of the vote. Regardless, even if you see FPTP as unacceptable, that shouldn't equate with the idea that our methods of elective democracy are broken. Broken means they no longer function.
  3. They are? Where's responsible government?
  4. Obama is not "non-white". How that relates to a comment about non-"white" war heroes no longer being ignored because the president is now non-"white" is self-evident. I hope that's the end of that.
  5. .........Did you read the post I was responding to? No, he doesn't. No, it's not. Well, if you consider the silliness of "white" and "black", then, yes, it's a bit silly. But, otherwise, no. [ed.: +]
  6. Yet, the part of the (apparent, since there's no link) article you quoted spoke specifically about the 150th anniversary of Confederation and then a vague, general reference to events, including "six year's worth of military commemorations". You brought up the War of 1812. There's no way to tell yet what these "military commemorations" will be or what they'll cost. The claim they'll "have significant resource implications for DND organizations and CF units" isn't clear on how "significant" and comes from the DND, which obviously (and understandably) has self-interests.
  7. Mmm.. Wouldn't that be the "let's build subways before we know how to pay for them" train she's not jumping on, rather than the "a downtown relief line is needed" one? If she's saying one's needed but how it'll be funded must be considered, then, that makes sense to me. But, I don' t know right now that that is what she's saying. Admittedly, I haven't looked... [ed.: c/e]
  8. Could be. Based on the fact Perth to Kuala Lumpur is a 5.5 hour flight, I estimate flying from where the plane did its U-turn (50 minutes into its flight) to Perth is approximately 6.5 hours; so, out to the southern Indian Ocean would be about 7. That's apparently how long the fuel that was on board would last for and how much time passed between the plane moving out of radar range and its last known communication with a satellite. But, why fly a plane as far as it would go out into essentially nothing?
  9. Well, RoFo is definitely off my list. But, who among the others seems most appealing is hard to determine. I'm wary of Chow's priorities and the associated financing, but am reserving definite judgment until I see more of her platform (assuming more is coming). That subway "relief line" is an absolute necessity, though.
  10. He said something, alright: "gravy train". Aaaaaannd... that was it. I don't trust your son. [ed.: +]
  11. You should tell that to the people who were at them.
  12. Putting aside the matter of national anniversaries, in what way was Confederation a war? Perhaps you're mixing Canada up with the US?
  13. Well, he's actually half "white". People really seem to (want to?) forget that.
  14. Er, no. There were many BNA acts. These (and other constitutional laws) were patriated via the proclamation of the Constitution Act 1982, which is what EIIR and PET signed on 17 April. We are a democracy. Period.
