    As for the lady with the piercings, politics in our ill-informed, under-educated, and increasing lack of fellow-feeling democracy, such appearances matter. It's a fucking popularity contest. The only reason the system doesn't collapse is that the bureaucracy, as bloated and cumbersome as it is, actually has some smart people all through the ranks, that keep the ship on an even keel despite the ineptitudes of our elected leaders. And remember, when money or policy is moving really fast in government systems as large as our western democracies take a good hard look at the process - there be corruption in there somewhere.

    I can't get past the face piercing in anybody without seeing Vince ask the question

    but I am probably a little more accepting than the average nartherner so how does shit-in-face play if she knocks on a door to ask for a vote even tho she is actualy well spoken ?

    Taylor wears really nice suits, rides a cargo bike wearing a white helmet, kind of a Justin trudeau knockoff fashion wise, which I think drove the local conservatives wild when he was mayor

    buddy was a pretty good telemarker, but mostly he is working insted of skiing cuz In a riding the size of bulkley/ stikine the job is 90 hrs a week almost half that is traveling up/down/ sideway and to ottawa

    I'm sorry but that has to be one of the dumber things about Canada posted on TGR. Every ranking of political system puts Canada near the top better than 90% of countries with PR. PR has merits but its very complex , exit polling in Germany showed that the majority of people didn't have an understanding of what their 2nd vote really did. For PR to work you need smarter people, for democracy to work better you need smarter people. PR will not make anyone's dick bigger or their ass smaller so don't believe the crap that Fair Vote Canada tell you. Its too bad that this election more than others seems to be very South Parkesk between a giant douche , a shit sandwich ( but with O'Toole moving to centre maybe less so) and what do I call Singh? lying cunt who knows almost all of his posturing is lying BS. But he will never be PM and so his promises of populist BS are meaningless. Don't get me wrong the BC NDP are doing a pretty good job.

    I haven't been following this thread lately and I'm sorry if this was covered but this 24 hr turnaround by Kenney is something you don't see every day

    https://globalnews.ca/video/8194570/...d-19-decisions

    https://edmonton.ctvnews.ca/i-apolog...plan-1.5587497

    even the shittiest canadian pols are so much better than down south it's pretty amazing and yet my republican dad will send me every dumb article he can find about how the metric system sucks. thanks, dad.

    Anyway, picked up the MIL from the airport, she was barely off the plane from Edmonton before launching into a tirade about it being sheer pandemonium over there (she's a retired nurse).

    I hope it gets better for everyone, and especially her old coworkers.

    Calgary mayyor Nanshi just roasted that blowhard kenney pretty hard. The mayor is a class act and not prone to attacks near as blunt. He said he's worked with 6 different premiers in his stint as cowtown mayor and the kenndy govt is the most incompetent he's ever seen. Mayors pulling no punches and he's ususlly quite measured and diplomatic

    And Dougie calls another lock down in 5...4...3...argggghhhh! How are your kids getting along with this? I fear the fallout of school back in with Delta running amuck.

    Maybe a road trip to New Hampshire next year? I'm not getting any younger.

    If Dougie calls a lockdown it'll spell the end for him.
    If they close schools again - the same.

    Kids are fine - they wear their masks, they follow the rules, and every day they say they had a great day. In-person school has got to be a billion times better than online. We cannot go back to that shit. "outbreak" declared at my kids' school yesterday, but that just means they suspect there was transmission from one positive case to another person in the same cohort. Those students are isolating and doing whatever it is public health says to do. Everyone else carries on. Same thing happened last year a few times, it is what it is but please Dougie keep the schools open at all costs.

    We just need to hang on until what - December? That's when Pfizer should be approved for 5+? I hope they bring nurses and needles right in to the gyms on Day 1.

    Once kids are vaxxed we will probably head to VT for a few days. There are people there I miss.

    Doug needs to limit the size of indoor gatherings and sell it in the name of keeping schools and businesses open.

    If he could do from two weeks ago, that would be great.

    The new cases numbers seemed to have peaked and are now going back down. Hopefully that trend continues.

    Hey at least he flip-flopped on the most obvious vaccine passport thing that everyone wanted him to do, and that starts Wednesday. Once he could #BlameTrudeau, of course.

    Sharp jump in tests (probably school related), lower positivity rate, slight increase in cases, 7-day average cases is lower, hospitalizations and ICUs continue to remain flat. What does it all mean!

    ...I think it means the vaccines are working.

    That's what I thought too. Trudeau wins covid, wins election, border opens. Guess not.

    So far Covid has not behaved as expected, why would it do so now ?

    Hopefully after trying everything else the people in charge will do the right thing and listen to science

    which is not infalible but its > politicians chasing money & votes

    Trudeau is on record as saying that the one country that he admires most other than his own country, is China. But it is worse than that: unlike other G7 countries Canada refuses to prevent Huawei from becoming Canada's 5g provider.

    Indeed, Canada under the Trudeau Liberals is a security threat to our closest neighbours and allies.

    I had just got the NDP flier that day. Homes we can afford- really how you going to do that other fund affordable, Better jobs with higher wages - how do the Feds do that? or anyone in power, Tackling the climate crisis NOW- really yes Canada should do its part but is a global issue with global action required , I've Singh dance around a lot of hard questions not come close to answering being told he didn't answer and repeat the same. They were hard questions granted. But he guy is outwardly delusional. But he didn't promise to make everyone's dick bigger.

    Lying cunt was a bit strong as I couldn't come up with a third to giant douche and trud sandwich . I voted for Mulcair , I have voted for every party. But Singh lately is losing a lot of my respect playing to the moronic NDP base which goes wild for BS promises. It doesn't help that in my riding that the NDP guy is dead from the neck up. The Con is not a winner either but meh.

    Trudeau's big problem is that he is the PM

    The best place to be in Canadian politics is elected to the opposition with almost zero chance of forming a gov CUZ it pays I beleive 186k per year, hang in for a few terms and get the great pension

    and you can say almost anything and never have to worry about delivering, does anybody really believe the housing issue which took decades to happen or anything else they promise can be solved in 4 yrs ... give yer head a shake

    they could do something about the Fentynal crisis which is actualy killing more people than COVID but I doubt it
