“No point in remembering irrelevant drivelled nonsense.”

“1) You're unaware of a fact so you doubt its existence, presumably because it goes against your internal narrative.
2) I provide you with a relevant example that could illuminate the discussion.
3) You dismiss evidence because "Any praise from the UN undoubtedly came with a sizable (sic) kickback by our found (sic) Chretien Liberal Government."
Tell me - are you at all interested in working with the truth or are you satisfied with making up and dismissing facts at will, simply to cover the gaping holes in your argument? If so, isn’t there another website that better suits your level of intellectual curiosity?”

“Corporations create jobs not unions nor are they sustainable through ever expanding government bureaucracies. The Conservative Government of Canada presented and implemented the largest and broadest tax cuts to the Canadian taxpayer in history. If you want to look at where your tax dollars went try provincial and municipals governments. Those are the facts.”
Mr Woo on Aug 22, 2014 at 02:16:43
“Corporations do not create jobs, they create profit. Corporate Canada has the highest percentage of 'dead cash' of the G8 nations and 'coincidentally' they also enjoy the lowest tax rate of any G8 nation. Corporations seek to serve THEMSELVES and no one or nothing else. If someone else (other than the shareholders and Board members) benefits from the existence of a corporation it is simply a fortunate circumstance. Your long held theory of lower tax rates resulting in 'investment' by corporations has been shattered YET AGAIN by --- the actions of corporations, who do not invest and who do not hire, but simply bank the money (in other countries) and say "thanks suckers, got any more?" Read the report by the World Bank, re: G8 nations with the highest % percentage of dead cash. I'll give you a hint. Canada. NUMBER ONE. Thanks for the money. Suckers.”

“Clarify? You mean the smallest deficit to GDP % ration in the G7 and a balance budget to boot.”
Mr Woo on Aug 20, 2014 at 17:40:38
“No, as in for the first time in Canadian history, individual taxpayers are paying more than 50% of the revenue to the government's coffers. Harper has reduced the corporate tax rate to nothing more than a token, the lowest in the G8, and 'we' are footing the bill for all the 'profit'. As one RC employee stated, if your company is even paying the 15%, the accountants should be fired'. And what do we get for all that? Jobs galore? Pay raises from all the cash rich corporations? Nope. Not a dime. Only a fool would believe that given free money a corporation is going to spend it on employing people or helping the country in any way. The only people who would believe that are the type that vote for charlatans like Mr. Harper. If it wasn't for oil prices going through the roof, Canada's 'strong economy' would be toast. Need proof? Look at Ireland, they were the toast of the (conservative) town a few years ago with a single digit corporate tax rate and a 'booming' economy. Now they're broke and any kind of social safety nets are gone because the businesses left and there's no money because they collected nearly nothing during the boom times because of the ridiculously low corporate tax rate (~5%). Basically, business took the money and ran and they'll do the same thing here. As for balanced budgets, you could have everyone starving in the streets and still 'balance the budget'.”

“So we have Liberal MP Frank Valeriote's convicted in Guelph for robocalls and a low level Conservative campaign assistant. There in ends the nothing scandal.
By the way nothing more than a fine and a slap on the wrist.”

“Harper has hired 1500 “communications staff” all funded by the Canadian taxpayer.
Many of these “staffers” come from Trinity Western University and other fundamentalist religious schools.
Harper is using these “staffers” to overwhelm comment boards such as this one in an effort to unduly sway public opinion.

“Sorry broken back mountain. It was the furrier named Paul Magder who challenged Sunday shopping. Can you not get one fact right. Liberal HQ didn't provide your scripts today?
Quote Toronto Star.
The Paul Magder of yore, the champion of the Sunday Shopper, is the furrier who famously battled with the province over the right to keep his business open for Sunday shopping.
Deep Diver on Aug 14, 2014 at 03:10:39
“See, the problem with you Reg, is that you dismiss all evidence that does not support your very narrow way of thinking.
Paul Magder and Marc Emery worked together on the issue. Marc Emery was actually jailed. The two knew each other and actually worked for the same political party namely, the Freedom Party of Ontario.
"On April 21, 1987, Freedom Party held its Paul Magder dinner at the (then) Holiday Inn at 89 Chestnut Street in Toronto. The event included speeches by Freedom Party president Robert Metz, Douglas Devnich (Seventh Day Adventist Church), Marc Emery (then Action Director of Freedom Party and the proprietor of City Lights Bookshop in London, Ontario), and Toronto furrier Paul Magder. Emery and Magder each (as a matter of civil disobedience) had been charged, numerous times, for opening their respective stores on Sundays contrary to Ontario’s Retail Business Holidays Act."
See, that's the difference between you and I. You say something and I admit to the parts that are correct and give you credit for them; however, you on the other hand dismiss everything that anyone else says that doesn't fit your narrative. Open your mind to reality.”
Will Webster on Aug 13, 2014 at 23:38:43
“Sorry Reg, but only when you start getting facts right will you be able to challenge others fact sharing with any sort of legitimacy.”

“To late to close the barn door on alcohol. Why make the same mistake with weed.
Schizophrenia is well documented in the use of weed and apparently you are a fine example of said medical case.”
Deep Diver on Aug 14, 2014 at 03:21:23
“Again, you're lying. Harvard Medical School researched the myth can concluded the following:
"“The results of the current study suggest that having an increased familial morbid risk for schizophrenia may be the underlying basis for schizophrenia in cannabis users and not cannabis use by itself,” note the researchers."
So, who should I believe, a juvenile troll who never get's any of his facts straight and keeps being disproved, or Harvard Medical School that actually uses science and has their findings published in peer reviewed journals?
Aug 13, 2014 at 19:37:01
“The prove is in, based upon investigative reports by both CNN and CBS. The black market in Colorado operates without impunity and youth sales as well as the direct undercutting of the legal distribution of weed is rampant. In addition accidental ingestion and hospitalization of infants is up 100 fold. Those are the facts.”
Simon Wagstaff on Aug 14, 2014 at 08:12:24
“the black market always acted this way... it is only news because it is now legal to buy it ...”
Deep Diver on Aug 13, 2014 at 20:18:54
“The reason people laugh at you is because you and the Conservative party which pays you to troll these sites are suffering from cognitive dissonance.
Alcohol is far worse than marijuana yet that's okay. Fatal alcohol syndrome.... No problem. Most county music songs revolve around drinking. Yet that doesn't bother you one bit. But marijuana, that's entirely different... it's evil.
If you wanted to be consistent, you would argue one of two points. Make marijuana as legal as alcohol or make alcohol as illegal as marijuana.”

“Nice try broken back mountain. She was not underage. Hence, it was a private matter between the police and the individual involved.”

“This is the second "broken back mountain" slur you've used. Its a homophobic slur, apparently.
If you think it helps your already bogus argument, you're only fooling yourself.
Fact is, a teenager was taken from 24 Sussex with a serious case of alcohol poisoning and you're defending it.”
Deep Diver on Aug 13, 2014 at 19:36:57
“The girl was 18. 24 Sussex is in Ontario. The legal drinking age in Ontario is 19. 18 is under 19, ergo she was underage.
I'm sorry if you deny facts, but the reality is that she was underage and she was forced to go to the hospital for alcohol poisoning.”

“Again there are no net new Correctional Facilities. The North East Nova Scotia facility is replacing the aging Antigonish and Cumberland facilities, the new facility will service the courthouses in Truro, Amherst, New Glasgow, Pictou, Antigonish, and, to some extent, Port Hawkesbury. The facility is run by Corrections Canada and not a private entity
Sorry.. society bares the burden and moral maze of saving you from yourself.”

“Explain to me how the media cameras and Union representatives were present at a private meeting ? It was nothing more than a complete setup, an entrapment of out of context sound bites played over and over in the left wing media party. Fantino was high jacked into no win scenario and you are being disingenuous to suggest otherwise.”
Aug 12, 2014 at 14:14:39
“The learned parallels are valid and Trudeau and his party often sites the Colorado model. There is nothing unique or enlighten nor innovative regarding Trudeau's weed policy. In fact it is nothing more than juvenal sound bites and pandering.
On another note the laws surrounding alcohol possession and age of consent to use in the USA (not to be confused with the distribution and availability in convenience stores) are far stricter than Canada. You have no moral high ground to suggest Canada position in handling alcohol through false superior values hold true.”
KL-MTL on Aug 12, 2014 at 16:20:32
“You wrote..."You have no moral high ground to suggest Canada position in handling alcohol through false superior values hold true."
WoW! I thought we were commenting on an an approach to legalizing marijuana use, and I sure didn't think that my morals nor values were in question...but then again...personal attacks are the ultimate defence for a Con.”

“Elbridge has no contract for a prison in Nova Scotia. A complete falsehood and blatant attempt at misinformation to distract from your failed ideology.
The openness of out free society allowed the Black Block to exploit Canadian citizens and there commitment to free speech through perpetrating their violence.
That will not happen in China nor would they dare.”
DoctorHorror on Aug 12, 2014 at 14:30:03
“And we do not have free society, if we did then I could grow as much marijuana in my backyard without any worries of the police invading and stealing my property. Your idea of free society is a myth and a lie.
The North East Nova Scotia Correctional Facility is the first of numerous multi-million prison projects expected under Bill C-10, the Conservative government’s flagship tough-on-crime legislation. The bill passed into a new law, the deceptively-named Safe Streets and Communities Act, in Parliament in March. Bill C-10 is a suite of crime legislation that will radically stir the Canadian justice system away from the prevention and restorative measures which have proven to be more humane, effective and cheaper for Canada, towards billion-dollar vindictive and exclusionary measures. It favors punishment over compassion and rehabilitation.”
