“The coup in Kiev was orchestrated by the west. and its going to backfire badly.
Our self important PM has decided to once again to provoke the situation on behalf of his American handlers. The Russians are right in wondering why Canada would be so antagonistic, but then they realized that Harper is a bought and paid for lap dog posing as a world leader, and they laughed.”

“Don’t be ridiculous, this bill is a joke! your either uninformed about the bill or would like others to be uninformed.
There is a long list of serious irregularities within this pile of crap bill , that is again another instance of Conservatives copying policy invented by US republicans to suppress voters.
New ID laws that require photo id corroborated with address.
Huge campaign financing loopholes
Partisan oversight during elections
Loss of proper investigative capabilities for elections Canada.
There is a Massive groundswell of hatred growing against this party. What kind of contempt for Canadians do Conservatives have when their party is under investigation for electoral fraud ( not to mention the cases where they were found guilty ) and yet is attempting to change the laws surrounding the abilities to properly investigate their actions?
Let's face it. This is about money. If they seriously wanted to stop it, they could target seal licence holders and pay them some serious money to retire the licences. the seal hunt may be a paycheck for a sealer, but it's a cash cow for animal rights groups.”

“Good insight. The publicized hoopla is almost always BS. The roots of an issue are usually hidden behind a curtain of sensationalism. Good comment. I'm a fan.”

“70% of our economy relies on retail sales. As middle wages jobs are lost so are the customers who buy those goods. Without them, the economy collapses. What is especially brilliant is while a lot of manufacturing companies are beholden to the almighty shareholder, by shaving their labour force of decent paying jobs they are in fact contributing to their own demise.
Globalization is a fact, you either invest in an educated work force that can produce high quality goods while making a liveable salary like Germany, or you watch those jobs go elsewhere, and your economy slowly die.”

“It has nothing to do with educated, It has to do with Corporations ditching well Educated People for cheap labor through Free trade, If the Government had any sense they would make sure before a company can ship anything here they have to Ensure a percentage is Produced here, We gave them a free ticket to export every thing.”

“We all know Ontario will not do this, given all they want is low wage manufacturing jobs. If they followed Germany's example they would not be in this mess. Given they act like Blacberry”

“The government pays an incentive to doctors who practice rurally. If it wasn’t for socialized medicine there would probably be less doctors in Slave lake than there is now.”
Rick Papineau on Mar 7, 2014 at 12:02:28
“I'm aware... that's kind of the point I'm trying to make is that Mr. Moen's implication that socialization (i.e. government control over health care) is what's caused the lower number of doctors in Slave Lake is complete and utter bunk.”

“Because only government should be able to pay doctors...”

“typo sorry, The government (CMHC) had to purchase 69 billion in mortgages from the banks.”

“who are you trying to kid - the Canadian banks bought very few risky derivatives - CMHC bought none - and the Canadian govt does not bail out the banks nor do they 'back' them - and CDIC insures the deposits”

“Your really going to try and tell us that “the capitalist bankers themselves” are what sheltered us from the 2008 collapse? Thats got to be one of the most ignorant things I’ve read on these boards in 5 years.
Bankers are allowed to do business within the confines of something called “the Bank Act”… hello anybody home?
Everybody knows one of the main, and most important reasons that Canadian banks never collapsed like so many banks around the world is:
Canadian bank regulators are, unlike in the US , not allowed to be lobbied by bankers themselves.”
CLARITAS on Jan 25, 2014 at 09:07:50
“in fact, the bankers themselves made the decisions not to get into the derivatives that were a part of the meltdown - the govt had no input in these decisions - hello, anybody home? get a kid to do some research for you”
