    And that matters why Al? I talked to her at length last election and she was well spoken, informed on the issues and was an entrepreneur who started her own business and was successful at it. Yeah, she has some piercings but who under 30 doesn't these days. Remember the old "judging a book by it's cover" proverb here dude. You're being pretty fucking judgemental harping on the chick's face metal. But whatev man, it's your vote.

    No going out on a limb at all by saying this. The NDP has been elected here since Nathan came to town. And, what has that got us up here. I really really liked Nathan, and still do. Voted for him more than once, but seriously - continuous voting in of opposition parties (in our current first past the post system, which I believe is FUCKED) does your riding nothing. Other than voting in a nice man, or woman... who may or may not have telemarked, or have a face piercing or two.

    Our political system is broken and we can do better.

    After watching Vince on pulp fiction I think that same thing anytime I see facewear

    but seriuosly the NDP candidate is the most likely to win

    And at least he is not a snow boarder

    you should probably put me on ignore just on principle

    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.
    They got a name for the winners in the world

    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.

    This has to be the dumbest thing ever posted on TGR. You call Singh a liar, but nothing about O'Toole who has been talking out of both sides of his mouth this whole election.

    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.
