Tom Mulcair: Canadians Want Balanced And Principled Approach To Mideast Conflict

Tom Mulcair: Canadians Want Balanced And Principled Approach To Mideast Conflict

Commented Aug 11, 2014 at 17:25:06 in Canada Politics

“Seems like Thomas Mulcair might have woken up to his constituents disgust at the ongoing onslaught on innocent Palestinian civilians...way too little way too late...and kind of hypocritical to take a political pot-shot at Harper when they share very similar views about the "right" of a government to "self-defense"...”

Justin Trudeau Vows To Scrap First Nations Financial Transparency Act

“I don't believe that Trudeau gets why First Nations don't appreciate the ineffectiveness, intrusion (have to report on non-fed income??) hypocrisy and troll-baiting nature of the Act. There is a presumption in the Act that First Nations aren't to be trusted, that we're sneaky and incompetent (and many of the comments on this story prove the ignorance of many Cdns on this issue). It ignores most of the proactive solutions put forward by FNs in favor of perpetuating the ineffectiveness of AANDC and the federal gov when it comes to policy design of FN programs and laws.

But what else can we say? Nobody wants to know the realities...they're comfy in their little bubbles, safe in their belief that they are above the pettiness of successive federal governments who cater to mega-corps at their expense...when its their turn, I will try not to be too smug...”

Why don't you post your tax returns online - or your hospital bills, etc.?

“The US has demonstrated consisted growth for the past 8 years....their job numbers are better than canada's...”

GJBowman on Aug 5, 2014 at 17:40:51

“The US has only just gotten back to the employment levels seen prior to the financial crisis of 2008/2009. And that doesn't take into account population growth. The US has been growing its labour market faster than Canada for the last two years, but that is probably more a function of having fallen harder, so now having a larget capacity to grow back.
Still -- the US is doing better than Europe. With the southern European basket case economies, it is one step forward, one step backwards.
Canada, by comparison to Europe and the US over the last 6 years, has been the economic stalwart.”

Charles the Great on Aug 5, 2014 at 17:13:17

“Their job numbers was a result of different counting and nothing more and if it was counted as it was in Canada it would be 7.2%. That is all Obama did was change the method on how it is counted and "job numbers" are only base on those looking for work and the real number is around the 40% areas since there is over 100,000,000 Working aged Americans who have no Job.

“Yes they are free to do as they please and vote that way too. Essentially they're now independent and will get no support from the Liberal Party. The Senate as a body will even get to decide what to do with the former Liberal Senate leader's budget now that he's out of a job.

Basically Justin has removed The Liberal Party from having representation in the Senate with the hope that Canada, can move towards having a non-partisan Senate.”

“Free education? You are totally uninformed and therefore wrong - we do not receive free post-grad education...we are subsidized though...to the tune of @2,700 per year for tuition and other amounts for other expenses...the communities and the students (families) make up the difference...my daughter's last tuition bill was $6,700/year....thankfully, the community used own-source revenues to supplement her federal subsidy and we paid off the rest...”

ScottinOttawa on Jan 7, 2014 at 16:56:56

“Maybe I wrote it incorrectly...I was not going after first nations people or saying there is a free ride...my point was that we, as a Canadian society, by backing first nations into a corner and demanding they adapt to Anglo European culture, have made it very difficult for members of the first nations to grow up with a strong sense of self worth and dignity and have thereby made it very challenging to achieve success (in education or otherwise).”

“Membertou??? Google it....

I live in Listuguj and we have ppl with great ideas, and then we have ppl with great ideas who do whatever it takes to bring them to reality...they don't just submit plans and cross their fingers...they hustle and do whatever they have to to move forward...

As for lack of capital, speak to those FNs who own businesses, apartments, houses and such off reserve...what did they do? They succeeded and get to come home to to their community (reserve) which will always be "theirs" (in a non-western, collective sense) because they'll never allow for it to be privatized (a Cdn pipe dream fueled by a unproven sense of western superiority and a firm belief in assimilation), when there's lots of lovely private property to be had nearby (most of which is on unceeded FN traditional territory)...is this the proper place to speak about a flourishing and hidden underground economy?

Nothing but the best of luck to Eric and his community...but maybe its time to hustle a bit...his ancestors managed - and with their spirit and values, I'm sure he can/will too...

And if journalists want to further the many negative FN stereotypes - keep up the superficial reporting!! Always a treat!”
