“Your privacy rights are not as secure in Canada as you think.”

“What boggles my mind is if the five eyes all have laws forbidding them from spying on their own citizens but are allowed to spy on all other nations and share this information with these nations doesn't that mean the US could just hand over my metadata to CSIS, as long as CSIS isn't the originator does that makes its legal.”

“Chances are quite high that these comments are not stored on servers on Canadian soil. Even if information is stored on Canadian soil, US authorities have agreements with Canada that would allow them access to any information sought.”

“Comments and personal information are two very different things.. Comments are made to be public. Information being sought for a criminal investigation not just for fun.”

“The shift to the right by all political parties is a direct function of globalization and global corporatism. These movements have restricted what national governments of all political stripes from all over the world can do. To call Obama a "socialist" is a joke given how upset American progressives have been with him. We basically still live in a world created by Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher.

While the world continues to globalize, Canada we never been more fragmented than it is today - First Nations, the French, Central Canada, the West or the Maritimes. What we lack in our political leaders is a truly national vision that reflects the common value of all Canadians - if indeed such common values exist.”

“The Mulroney Tories were hardly neo-cons and the Auto Pact and branch system existed way before NAFTA. The US was Canada's #1 trading partner way before NAFTA.”

“Everyone is a hypocrit when it comes to money. There's no escaping it. For years the rest of Canada suffered from a low dollar while the manufacturing sector in Ontario profited from it. Now that the tables are turned, the premier of Ontario cries foul. For decades the Ontario failed to diversify its markets, relying solely on exports to the US. When the US economy tanked so did that of Ontario. But hey it's more expedient politically to blame Alberta rather than your own bad management. Over 11,000 sq. km of wilderness and native land were flooded by the James Bay hydro projects but now the hydro power is touted as environmentally friendly. Much of the power from James Bay II was to be sold to the US.”

“Government wise international trade is a federal responsibility so the prime minister of Alberta (I mean Stephen Harper) will have to take some responsibility for that. But as Alberta and Albertan's generally make quite clear oil and gas is Alberta's deal. Oh and talk about an undiversified economy, look no further than Alberta, one of the least diversified economies anywhere. God forbid oil and gas prices collapse for any number of reasons; Alberta would be an epic basket case. All of these predictions are just that, predictions that assume no breakthrough technologies in energy sources or use and no discoveries of cheaper conventional oil outside Alberta.”

“Who did you think Ontario would trade with? It was the neo-cons who brought us NAFTA.”

“John, what your sister has done may not be your idea of a balanced life, but if your sister is doing what she loves and is good at and she has no regrets - who are we to criticize the path she's taken.”

“What a ridiculous argument. It doesn't just take 10,000 hours to master something. The crux of the "10,000-Hour Rule" is that success in any field is, to a large extent, a matter of practicing a specific task for a total of around 10,000 hours. I'm sure the author was not focused on her business every waking hour.”

“What a ridiculous lack of reading comprehension on your part. The whole 'point' of the author's article is that she's been so focused on her business to the exclusion of all else, that she doesn't have time add balance to her life. She, herself, claims to be THAT focused, ALL the time. I don't believe her, either, but was tongue-in-cheek giving a rough calculation of how someone who sleeps, takes one day off a week and an annual vacation would still have enough time pursue non-business interests, and successfully pursue their career aspirations. Going by her assertion that her business is that all-consuming, she's a failure at it. If she's into her second decade (!) at it, and it's still all-business, all the time, she's not gleaning any rewards that can compare to the time and lost opportunity-cost that she has sacrificed in other areas. That lost-opportunity cost is not limited to non-business aspects life, either; she likely would have have numerous career path opportunities that would have been more rewarding in both business and non-business spheres had she not been chasing a carrot on stick and congratulating herself along the way about how successful she is in being a failure.
BTW, the 10000 hour rule isn't restricted to single or specific tasks. Being able to master piano would take 10 000 hours, but wouldn't mean the pianist is restricted to 10000 hours of mastering a single composition”

“This argument is nonsense - 60% of Canadians may not have voted for Harper but an even larger percentage of Canadians did not vote for the Liberals, NDs and Greens.”
