“Please elaborate - what makes it your favourite?”

“It is in a class of its own, it was once described to me as New York crossed with San Fransisco without the dirt and the crime and a little history & culture for good measure ,”

“You repeat the words diverse, diversity of opinion, range of voices - I for one am not interested in the voices of the right - Pierre Polievre, Baird and the neanderthal Toews which is setting back correctional policy to Dickensian times and the rest of that gang talk nonsense in my opionion and don't need this site to promulgate their ideology. I suspect you have been given marching orders to try to broaden the base but we aren't interested.”

“hey, thats the thang aint it? you can leave, no problem, and btw, no judgements either,,.from our POV, you are not ready,, yet!,.. soon though,, you bet LOL.”

“if you! negate the "voices of the right", then what are you left with?.. think about it,..POV is important, all of them,, the right, the wrong, we, none of us was born oracles,were we?.. it is a learning curve, and thatsa fact jack!”

“Speak for yourself. I think strong voices from the left and the right are what makes this site great.

And a warm welcome to you, Marni. I don't always agree with you, but like the way you write and think.”

Big Retailers Face New Language Rules In Quebec

Big Retailers Face New Language Rules In Quebec

“I think this is an over-reaction skizziks. Quebec is an integral part of what makes us who we are and to come to the defence of big American multi-nationals is misplaced priority. Without french language rules, which aren't that onerous in my opinion, Quebec would look like Ontario or Ohio. The face of Montreal should reflect the predominant language of the province.”

skizziks on Oct 14, 2012 at 07:48:34

“Cultural fascism is an integral part of Quebec. I have lived it, and know first hand of what I speak. I voted with my feet after the second referendum, and after being on the short end of numerous anti-English racist incidents. Quebec is not a part of who we are, it is a black hole into which we throw endless money. Time for the bleeding to stop. If Quebec wants to be a nation, then it's time to grow up, and pay it's own way.”

“They are no more important than any other four seats whether they are scattered across the country or in one province, right?”

Bobo Macoute on Sep 2, 2012 at 07:25:09

“You only have to pay off 1/4 the amount of voters to win these seats....and with other people's money too. What could be more natural for a politician?”

“Time and corresponding population growth is resolving the problem without having to re-open the constitution - PEI's four seats are less and less important as a percentage of all seats in the House.”

Bobo Macoute on Aug 28, 2012 at 09:11:17

“When trying for a majority, these 4 seats become the most important in the country. All politicians pander to these 4 seats.”

“I think Ms Coyne is absolutely correct in her dissection of the Conservatives (Harpo anyways, maybe not all the others). I give her full marks for standing back and looking at the big picture on this national forum instead of targeting individual initiatives such as the ill-conceived policies on prisons, the military and so many others - plenty of time to recommend alternative approaches in the time ahead. I would say that her approach is the right one for a leadership hopeful intending to attract the eyes and ears of Canadians. I can't imagine she wouldn't be one hundred percent better than the incumbent prime minister but that wouldn't be hard to do (sigh).”

Why the LCBO Doesn't Want You Buying From Wineries

Commented Jul 1, 2012 at 08:21:35 in Canada Politics

“Of course it is a great source of revenue - every time I visit my doctor or drive on a highway I can see the benefit of the taxes raised by buying a bottle of wine at the LCBO. This keeps down the general income tax rate which would be higher if the Ontario didn't earn the sales tax from alcohol, and profit generated in the LCBOs (over $1 billion over and above taxes collected).”
