I am not too young.

What I remember and know, is that Mike Duffy lived in Ottawa for over 30 years and in order to be a senator from PEI he had to get property there. So he bought a cabin. He still lived in Ottawa yet claimed he lived in PEI and got more money.

There were several others as well and they got off too. Mac Harb and I cannot remember the other ones. The whole thing was a scam and it would have done too much damage to the senate to prosecute them. They all should have been punished.

Dude, just getting paid for being a senator and getting that massive pension for all that they accomplished during the years of 1900-2021 was a crime if you think about. 

People have been appointed to the Senate at 74.5 years, served half a year as a "senator" but never had to actually do anything official, and then got 6-figure pensions. 

The amount of money that has been wasted on senators over the years is criminal, but at least they did something this year.

Logical to ignore facts? Typical.

It was logical to ignore you. And yes, that is fairly typical.

There is a big difference between not caring about the past and not knowing it.

If you knew the significance of it, you'd care.

You're a fascist sympathizer so you don't think that their crimes were all that bad, and you're ready to move on. I get it, 100%.

In the future, if another PM decides that you have to take a vax or lose your human rights maybe you won't see it the same way. Maybe you'll object to having your bank accounts frozen, or getting beaten by police when you join a protest against all the things that are happening to you. But in the end, you'll have to be ok with it, because you're busy setting the precedent for how our gov't can behave in the future.

Senate appointments are lifelong, with mandatory retirements and big fat pensions at 75, as I mentioned before. 

If you didn't know you could have just asked me instead of babbling. 

 

So, not lifelong.

Except they have to serve 6 years before getting a pension.  
 

Once again, you show a complete ignorance to how the parliament operates.  It must be very freeing to never have to actually know what you’re talking about….  To have absolutely zero care about shamelessly spewing nonsense seems liberating.

Just get Alberta out. The international community and world court will not allow it to be landlocked.

Canada, ultimately is screwed.

Canada is not a signatory to that particular treaty. LOL

Besides, why would Canada follow the globalist agenda of the UN?  You Albertans can go cry to WEF, the UN or whomever you wish.  Canada will remain free of such globalist tyranny.

Wow, could it be said any simpler and to the point? When, where paper was the main problem? If our main problems were some papers wouldn't we be living in a perfect world, or very near.

So like an illusion remedy as the rational for indefinite status quo? When the monarch interfered in anything what exactly could they do? No we like to put imaginary dreams ahead and before any reality. That much is pretty clear.

the point is simply that Canadians on the aggregate want the Prime Minister to be dictator

the UK has the same parliamentary system, but with a very different political culture

in the United Kingdom, they fire Prime Ministers regularly, they check the power of their PM's

but in Canada, the Prime Minister is almost never brought down by the MP's

bear in mind the origin of dictatorship

most people think of it as being some sort of military overthrow of a democratic government

but actually, Dictator was an ancient Roman office, and the process was democratic

the Roman Senate would appoint a Dictator for a period of time, to deal with crises

the thing about Canada, it is constantly in crisis, Confederation ever on the brink of breaking up

so Canadians look to the Prime Minister to be dictator, ostensibly to hold the Confederation together

traditionally in the face of Quebec secession, but now Western secession is also being invoked

Hey, you are preaching  to the converted. The Canadian senate is and has been a "reward" post for political buddies. A political gravy train for all parties.

A senator must serve 6 years for a pension by the way.

The Canadian senate, a requirement that ties to the monarchy (the commons and the house of lords crap).

Do you grasp math and the vast numbers involved? The world court has to be involved. You will lose.

I lived in Alberta for 10 years.

Albertans are like Quebecers. Always whining and it is all someone elses fault that they are in the position they are in.

As normal on this forum, the topic has been lost.

Has anyone actually been following what is going on and being said at the commission?  :)

Well let's just say it's like me threatening to quite the Conservative Party that I never joined in the first place.

So how do you quit Confederation when it made you in the first place. No distinct language. No distinct culture. No history as a sovereign entity. Just the imaginary dream of a few extra bucks in your pocket. What a majestic nationalist ideal. Just so honourable.

And as pointed out the ignorant idea that you'd build pipes easier if you were a foreign country. Laughable.

I’m surprised the Liberals didn’t sign such a treaty.  They love international treaties that force the government to make concessions and give handouts to groups, especially if it means calling the country colonial and oppressive.  I think we need to spend billions on a Royal Commission Inquiry as to why our government broke with stupid past practices.  I’m not used to this.

Why would we sign it? Canada isn't landlocked, it has coasts on three oceans.

It appears that the people with the lifelong appointments actually still care for democracy

That is a weakest form of checks and it's far from functional. Just recall how many scandals were dismissed singlehandedly by PMO with no public knowledge or accountability. Without institutions and traditions of robust independent checks this is the flimsiest of a threads that even a shell of democracy hangs in this country. Every time, a guessing game, flip of a coin. 99.9% of Libs looked the other way on SNCL. 100% on mandates and Emergency. No, not even close. Getting there.
