“This is absolutely right Douglas. Doing as Molari suggests, and voting Liberal no matter what, especially in riding the Liberals can't win, will only put Harper back in power.”

Douglas Sinclair on Aug 18, 2014 at 12:57:44

“Right, And in other cases voting NDP or Green. But its a harder choice for some Lib and NDP supporters in ridings where a Con is the dark horse who could come up the middle. I personally don't like majorities (even NDP ones).”

“Like many are saying, Trudeau is nothing but Harper with a smile. More likeable, less mean spirited, and perhaps a little more Canadian in his persona, but nonetheless, Harper with a smile.
Anyone who believes Mr. Trudeau will bring about any substantive change, other than with the pot laws and with the way his govt speaks to the people, is fooling his or her self.”

“Trudeau has made it clear he will not be ending the oil sands and supports the pipelines, so you're with the wrong party.
This country was founded on tariffs. From the start we were protectionist about our resources, which was what gave us the strong manufacturing sector in the 50s and early 60s, where one lone worker could feed, house, save for the future, finance the kids' education and retire comfortably.
Since those tariffs have been removed and the multitude of free trade agreements introduced, our manufacturing sector has died and our wages have no kept pace with the cost of living. Now a family of two with two working parents cannot do what a family with one bread winner could do before.
Your really need to rethink both your support for Trudeau and your approach to national protectionism.”

“When did I say anyone should subsidize any industry?
I didn't.
And if you're so concerned about industry subsidies, what about the billions being poured, by Harper, into Oil and Banking.
Love how you Harper apologists rant on about govt subsidies and such, but never say a word when Harper engages in just that.”

JUSTBAKERS135 on Aug 18, 2014 at 09:19:30

“First, I'm a Liberal, so I would never apologize for Harper. I truly believe that we need to end oil sands development completely. I will yell about ending government subsidies for oil & gas.

If you keep tariff protections and import limits for dairy that's a subsidy.”

“Rubbish. All we'd have to do to restart our manufacturing sector is require all raw resources to undergo at least one refining or manufacturing step prior to export. That would create at least four jobs for every one currently in the sector. We could also remove the GST and HST from all Canadian made goods.
But no, the big corporate interests that are behind both the CONs and the LIBs will have none of it.
As for the direct subject matter, look what our wine producers are saying this will do to them.
Heaven forbid the CONs or the LIBs, who are up to their eye balls in the pockets of multinationals, should ever listen to the people who are actually producing goods in this county.”

“You know as well as I do the dairy market is not the only market to be put at a disadvantage by this deal.
Fact is, we have nothing but raw resources to sell. Meanwhile, the EU still has its manufacturing sector. We will be doing with them like we're doing with the US, selling our resources cheaply, and buying them back at extravagant costs.
Its what killed out manufacturing sector in the first place.

But thanks for letting us know the Liberals are little more than Harper with a smile.”

JUSTBAKERS135 on Aug 15, 2014 at 08:45:24

“Canada's economy is 70% service sector. My friend all work in tech, or construction services, or app development (although I do live in Toronto).

I think this idea that manufacturing is a good job is a misnomer from another era. That bolt screwing job that went to Mexico or China will be leaving there soon as robots take over manufacturing. It would be the worst industry to invest resources into.

Add to the fact that no 20-something wants a job on an assembly line. It's not the 50s.”

“Love how the CON supporters are using this excuse to sell out our rights.
This deal will seriously harm Canadian dairy producers, and that's why your party and govt are keeping the details from both the people and the provinces.
One must be blind not to see it.”

“I'm a Liberal supporter. I support Trudeau. He would advocate EU free trade deal (maybe not now bc of politics).

I just don't understand why preserving a monopoly and price fixing is needed in the dairy industry? That's what the futures market is for.

That's ONE industry....think about the benefits of a $17T market! Big picture!”

“No, its known as giving in to get a deal done so it can be used in an election campaign to make the claim something got done.
When you "compromise" just to get a deal done, whether you hurt your own country or not, its known as "capitulation".”

JUSTBAKERS135 on Aug 14, 2014 at 09:41:52

“So, the few issues: our dairy controls, patents, buy local, pharma, are going to hold up a deal that will grant Canada access to $17T market.

Call it "capitulation" on these issues, but the EU had the power, not us!

I've negotiated a few deals in my day (in business). Everyone capitulates on something: that's what I call compromise.”

“Deflect and change the subject.
Fact: The Conservative govt is making false statements to people, both about what Trudeau said and about what his party is advocating.
They are also outrightly ignoring the decades of information coming out of places like Holland and other coutnries where legalization has been proven to have no role in increasing distribution to minors.
They are also ignoring Prohibition here in the Americas, and what happened when it was repealed.”

The real cheap shot here is the one Harper has aimed at you. He's got you convinced, despite a worldwide plethora of evidence, that somehow a sane legalization approach to cannabis will result in more cannabis use. He also has you convinced that Trudeau said something he didn't.
Maybe you should actually read what Trudeau has actually said on this matter before you accuse other people of cheap shooting.
The only cheap shots around here are coming from you side of the aisle.”

“I know Jodie is smart and articulate, but both her and Marc are out to lunch if they think voting Liberal is going to fix the problems in this country.
Also, voting Liberal in a riding where they don't have a chance to win is just going to put the Tories back in power.
The Emerys would be far better off pouring their substantial financial wherewithal into the ABC movement, and into efforts regarding strategic voting, and getting the vote out, rather than putting it all behind the Liberals.”
