“Yup, you got it spot on. I live in Stephen Joseph Harper's riding - lucky me :P. I have been inundated with municipal polling calls that are so completely obviously from the "Manning Centre for Building Democracy" that it's nuts. As a bonus, I also get to read Danielle Smith's rants daily in the Herald! Yay!) This "Calgary" school of economics and conservatism needs to go... I went to U of C, I've had Tom Flanagan as a prof and anyone who believes this garbage has no business minding my dog, let alone my country :P
P.S. Fun Fact! I almost bought the house EzRAT was selling when Stevie took away his riding!”
“Yeah, one line of this parody mentions castration....care to compare the number of sexually assaulted women, women who are actual victims of domestic violence and the women actually killed by their partners to the ACTUAL act of castration in the world? "Womens rights" (sic) are also known as human rights. Your ignorance is not helping your "cause".”

“No Human rights are known as human rights, period. Calling men bigots, calling for mens castration is sexism not human rights. Calling me ignorant doesn't disguise your lack of argument. Your histrionics are also not disguising your misandry.”

“Seriously? Why start reading and watching the whole story now? Apparently you already know everything you need too! Are you okay with the euthanasia points as well? Would that be okay, if the boy was in a chair? Anyone who can read that letter or watch that story and think, "it's not without its points" is disgusting.”

“It matters if he's in a chair because it would make the reason he's outside more understandable.
The mother plants the boy out there and could go back inside for something and not supervise the noise.
If not, he's out there of his own volition and is making noise before she knows he's out there.”

“Well, the news report I saw said that the letter was mailed to Max's grandmother, as that is where he spends his mornings. Apparently the address was hand written and the letter only was printed. Hugs to your friend, I sincerely hope this terrible story doesn't cause any pain for the families we all know affected by autism.”

“Thank you for your kind thoughts. I doubt there is much that surprises parents of special needs kids. Just more of the same old same old, I'm afraid.”

“Actually, no, the guns were not "confiscated" they were taken to a secure facility and locked down. Every owner can pick them up with no questions when the state of emergency is over. The RCMP were securing an empty, evacuated town and trying to keep the guns secure.... try again with your outrage please...”

“They entered their home and took the guns to a safe location. To me that it unlawful search and seizure at least by American law.”
mariodinky661 on Jun 30, 2013 at 12:35:01
“The article I read said the guns were confiscated and many guns were found lying around the house which is against candanian laws and the only way to get your guns back was to prove you bought them legally, ie: receipt.”

RE: your statement:
" Every owner can pick them up with no questions when the state of emergency
is over. "
.........with NO questions.........
FROM the link above:
" The guns will be returned to owners after residents are allowed back in town and they provide proof of ownership, Topham added. "
.........they provide PROOF of ownership...........
Sooooo....what if their "proof of ownership" is destroyed in the flood ???
“So what? So most people don't care if women die under life threatening conditions in pregnancy... nice for them but it matters not for those women's human rights:) Have a nice day and try and read up on these things next time.”
“The Americans wanting only American money is my all time fav! My sister and I once stood in a line at a linen shop in Gibraltar for 10 minutes while an American women argued over the 15 pence she had gotten in change....she was mad they wouldn't give her change in US cents.....”

“Sounds about right. On the flip side, I was working in New York for the Canadian Government in New York and I went to a major bank across the street to convert some Canadian money to U.S. They told me that they didn't handle foreign currency, that I would have to go to a particular bank on Wall Street, no ifs, ands or buts.”
John David Payne on Mar 7, 2013 at 23:31:32
“My friend runs the only Barber Shop in our town and we have many visitors from the States. He has a sign that says "We do not accept US funds...this is Canada" and he won;'t he simply tells them to go to the bank down the street”

“I would be interested in that study, however abortions sought is a different issue than abortion attitudes. It's tricky to accurately measure when societal pressures may cause underreporting. I do think your original point stands above other markers - religious beliefs probably are a big part.”

“I agree, and I would add education levels also matter. The more education a person receives the more likely they are to see variance in the world. Less education is correlated with a more rigid world view.”
Terran on Nov 19, 2012 at 23:25:13
“priests, pastors and religious are very educated. any reason why they still hang on to faith in spite of education?”
CanadianSkeptic on Nov 19, 2012 at 21:04:43
“I thought that might be a possibility too, but I saw a study recently that found no difference in the number of abortions sought by education level.”

“Nicely said AuntiFascist! You are so right...the same folks that shake their heads over Canada turning back boats of Jewish refugee now cheerfully deny oppressed boats full of the most vulnerable citizens of the world refuge here... Just the victims are new.”

“Actually, we seem to have more in common than differences:) I used to counsel women in crisis in a shelter and have also seen and heard too many stories to make that decision for any one but myself. No one is pro abortion. I wish that the need for abortion did not exist, but I know that it does. Rona Ambrose can hold any opinion on abortion that she feels fit, as does every Canadian. Imposing that opinion is another story.”

“You are a liar. Any women requesting an abortion the day before her due date will be met with a mental health evaluation, not a full term abortion and you know it. Less than 1 percent of all abortions in Canada happen before 20 weeks and the rest are due to horrible complications, the likes of which I wish on no one. Abortion is unregulated, sorry UNREGULATED, in Canada because it is a medical decision between a women and her doctor.
If you believe that "the act is barbaric", by all means please exercise your right not to have one.”

“Exactly. She is, in fact, the Minister for Pro Choice because she is the Minister for the Status of Women. Women, sad that we need to keep reminding people or this, are HUMAN BEINGS. As human beings we enjoy the right to security of our persons. Rona Ambrose is fully entitled to believe whatever she wants about abortion, and I will completely defend her right to believe it. I will never defend her right to impose her belief on the rest of the country. Ever. My daughter deserves every right to security of her person as every man in this country.”
