Tranchat.

It's that, or I'm selling a piece of furniture for $25, and they want to haggle me down by $5. Urgh. Do we seriously have to do this?

Can he do anything right? /s

I'm afraid Trudeau is too scared to get involved with this in the middle of NAFTA and with an election a year away. He has to be stronger here, this is a horrible precedent.

Actually, I think this could turn to his advantage given that Scheer is giving Ford the green light to keep on trucking.

Does Scheer have any power over Ford? I don't think Ford is taking any directions from him.

No, the leader of the opposition has no power over the Premier.

If the Premier abuses his authority (say, e.g., indefinitely delay provincial elections), however, it's reasonable to think the PM can do something about it, but this is uncharted territory.

It would have been nice if Justin Trudeau didn't run on a platform of election reform and then refuse to do it.

That was really anti-democratic and slimey.

Federal election reform and provincial election reform are completely unrelated.

If the federal method of election changed, and people were happy with the results, it's almost guaranteed you'd see the provinces follow suit within a couple election cycles. Some of the biggest barriers is people's unfamiliarity of other election systems, and worry that changing it will make the situation worse. So they're not completely unrelated.

Your faith in provincial governments is heart-warming.

I think a lot of decent Americans don't agree with the current crazyness going on with their government. I hope they find a way to change that asap as the world is becoming a much more dangerous place with such inhuman bully governments...

US has consistently opposed the ICC since its inception.

This is just another instance of the general belief among Americans that they are above the rules set by non-Americans.

America is sovereign and as such is not subservient to the whims of any foreign court. Not even the ICC.

Yep, Americans torturing non-Americans without repercussions is totally cool.

Also, Americans are the good guys.

Quality of life is proportional to PER CAPITA economic growth and PER CAPITA disposable income. While immigration can help with those, it isn't a sure thing by any means, and can hurt it.

Excuse me if I reject the premise that we should have a race to the bottom.

Man I saw a dude play Federer a few days ago that was cussing, slamming his racquet down on the ground, and being as poor a sport as can be and not once was he penalized for it.

So that umpire should have shown his spine and penalized him too.

I mean, what's the point we're making? That we should have a race to the bottom in which everyone can gleefully be assholes to umpires?

Oh yeah, that's the good stuff.

The Anglo-Quebecois will obviously have their rights respected, as per the Law 101. Now, it's a bit more complicated to know when it comes to English Canadians from out of province... I would guess they would naturally fall in that category...

No it isn't.

I mean, sure - he could send a nuclear missile into Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver 10 times over, he could could easily invade us and take all of our assets and turn us to slaves, etc.

But what kind of a psychopath says "I could kill you if I want to" to a friendly neighbour? What does it say about the others living with that psychopath when they shrug their collective shoulders?

I think the title attempts to get the folowing point across:

It's people who are on the left who want to tear down statues, but it turns out a huge portion of the left, Liberals, don't want the statues taken down. The group of proponents is far smaller than you think.

It's people who are on the left who want to tear down statues,

I have no idea where this notion comes from. Outside of the Victoria city council, who has been calling for the removal of MacDonald's statues?

Crawl out from under your rock and google it. Victoria council didn't wake up and just decide to take the statue down.

Actually they kind of did.

What does populism mean in this context?

The dictionary just says related to populist, which is defined as:

a member of a political party claiming to represent the common people;

Is that the definition they use? If not, what?

This isn't surprising because US-Canada relations are strained.

Hyperpartisanship in the states means the Democrats assume the sitting, Republican government is wrong and disagree with them, while Republicans do the opposite.

If Clinton were president an in the same situation you could pretty reliably flip the results over.

If Clinton were president an in the same situation you could pretty reliably flip the results over.

This assumes that Clinton and Trump would have taken the same steps in regards to NAFTA, and in the general relationship between the two countries.

Yes. It does. Hence why it says Clinton in the same situation

That's what you and your downvote brigade don't seem to realize - to compare with a Clinton presidency that doesn't exist you have to make certain assumptions.

But she had a platform we can draw from. At no time did she say she would withdraw from NAFTA or push for a renegotiation.
