I swear I follow and discuss American politics online waaay more than Canadian. This group will be good for me get me more informed about our Canadian political affairs. I must say, I am disappointed in liberals both at the provincial and federal levels and would have to go for NDP or Greens. NEVER the darn cons. :/

Canadians follow American politics because when the elephant to the south sneezes we Canadian mice catch a cold. Canadians are much more aware of American politics because of the effect it has on our daily lives but Americans tend to be blissfully ignorant of Canada and most other nations in the world, often they are ignorant of things going on outside of their own state.

Not to mention, US-centrism is a helluva thing. And too many Muricans do not have passports nor have they ever left their own country their entire lives. They live in their tiny bubbles!

@demifeministgal To be honest there are lots of Americans that do travel and resist the America First programming that is everywhere in the US but to be completely honest there are even more Amuricans that don't travel, don't own a passport and I think that's a good thing. 😉

@Surfpirate Well I was thinking about the research I read a number of times recently that showed more Americans than not do not have passports. They out number the travellers. And with their health costs soo damn expensive leading to debt sentences and their min wage being pathetically low and limited maternity leave, it makes sense why.

I’ve voted Liberal my whole adult life. The conservatives can piss off. Their rule over Manitoba in the 90’s is the reason why myself and so many others had to look elsewhere for work.

@ToolGuy I didn’t lose a job, I worked for the province while I was in university. Upon graduating the options for RN’s were extremely limited, forcing a move to America.
I get that you’re on the NDP train and that’s your right completely. I voted for them on a local level occasionally. I did vote NDP when Doer became premier.
I can only vote in federal elections, expats cannot vote in municipal elections.

Jane and Jody have a lot more to tell according to them. I heard this on CBC last night: "If they are speaking in the House, or in a committee proceeding, they are absolutely protected by the law of parliamentary privilege and no legal proceedings of any kind can be brought against them based on what they say in the House or in House committee proceedings," Rob Walsh told host Vassy Kapelos today in an interview with CBC News Network's Power & Politics.
So how come they are not talking?

Maybe there's nothing to talk about.

@Arouet then they have some splaining to do.

@Holiday 'splaining' would mean there is something to talk about, but if there is nothing to talk about....? I'm not sure where your comment takes us.

@ToolGuy Meh. Tempest in a teapot. No laws broken. No envelopes stuffed with cash. No planes blown up. This whole affair has become merely an opportunity for the PCs to act like demented preschoolers, in order to cover up the fact that they have no policies, no ideas, no leadership, and no brains. As for he NDP's "pubic inquiry" idea, that is simply a more elegant way of keeping the pot boiling in the hopes of picking up a few outrage votes. Nothing to do with the good of the country.

@ToolGuy I know that by posing all those questions, you would like us to infer that where there is smoke, there must be fire. The is is a fishing expedition whose only purpose is to create doubt without adding any new information. There really isn't even much smoke. Is Trump a Soviet era mole forgotten by the KGB? Have Martians eaten Justin's brains? Is Jack Layton alive and hiding in Brazil? I prefer to keep my eye on the ball: job one is to make sure the PCs don't get elected for anything. And before you hit the block button, you need to know that I am committed NDP: I worked on the Federal campaign last time around and I'm up to my ears working to get Rachel reelected this time. I am, however, a realist. Bimbo boy is a better choice for PM than whatever cretin the PCs come up with. Federally the NDP has no chance. None.

splitting votes can help to elect the cons . . . just a point not an endorsement

I voted liberal in my provincial elections and it didn't do shitall to keep the canadian trump from power here. At least if I had voted NDP I would have been satisfied I voted for the party I wanted to. Strategic voting doesn't always work, it seems. -_-

@demifeministgal agreed but working against the larger issue has costs too . . those who voted green instead of HIillary contributed to the environmental disaster that is #individual1

The Liberals have always been a poor choice for me they are just conservatives pretending to be liberals.

Anyone who thinks there is no difference between Liberals and Conservatives has never heard of Steven Harper.

@Arouet Trudeau? The guy who bought a pipeline?!

@ToolGuy Two sides of the same coin.

Posted by bookofmoronsheard that nonsense from the local and Ottawa tantrum convoy at least a dozen times. If you're gonna "overthrow the government", you should at least know which country you're in.

Posted by SnowyOwlSoon the occupiers who feel privileged will realize that privileges are not rights and hopefully leave and go home.

Posted by SnowyOwlIt's easy to believe that you are in the majority when you live in an echo chamber.

Posted by actofdogNinety percent of Canadian truckers are vaccinated so the ''freedom convoy'' is useless and has no end game, plus it is illegal now they only had a two day permit.
