Long video so you get a long comment First, I like the direction you’re heading so far
I have tried, as I did through my campaign last year, to strike a balance between opinions. Not a compromise, not a defeat, it is an acceptance. It’s like drivers licenses, I agree in the education and licensing of gun owners. I’ve expressed this opinion on my website. Extremism has always and will continue to fail as a tactic for change.
I’ve been on the fence with the CBC. Either defund it entirely and turn it into PBS, or, sell off the News division (it’s not like they cover much Canadian news anyways) and focus on the Entertainment side of CBC. This would eventually lead to private funding or collapse based on their quality. The News should not be directly connected to or funded by the government, the problem with the alternative is these big media conglomerates which are, censorship wise, no better than the government of the day.
Is Derek Sloan going to end up like Max Bernier? Stay on for a year and eventually be pushed out of the CPC? And then what, will he run for the PPC?
The argument I used about global warming was, back in the 80s we fought “acid rain” and “CFCs”. Now the developed world did end up banning CFCs but what about acid rain? Did it just go away? I don’t remember the #CCPV19 virus curing acid rain like it has climate change (reflective of the massive drop of the words “climate change” in every single weather related event on my planet).We didn’t fail you Greta, we stopped acid rain! What have you done lately?
I believe we should have calmly and intelligently encouraged mask usage back in January. Today it makes no sense, but as I said to someone the other day I don’t oppose the strategic use of masks but being “forced” to wear one is the problem. And everyone I say that to just does not seem to ‘get it’.I checked the #CCPV19 stats the other day. LESS people have tested positive for Covid-19 in Canada than die from H1N1 each year. I think in Ontario it was something like 40,000 positive out of 2 MILLION tests (not exact stats but that crazy small a percentage). Covid is nasty but it’s just like the flu for risk. But you are absolutely right and have been. Duck and cover!
I’ll be honest, I live in fear of losing part of my sight because of the substantial backup and delays of surgeries here in Ontario. Fortunately I’m at a point where things are pretty stable, but I’m at home on disability waiting for life to get back to somewhat normal. I feel for those people not as fortunate as me who have serious health issues and they’re basically being told to ‘take a number’.
Isn’t it interesting that back in January or so teachers were striking for smaller classroom sizes and more pay. I guess they’re lucky #CCPV19 came along eh? The ridiculous thing I heard the other day though, I think it was the teachers union, on the radio whining once again. This time they were ranting about Ford downloading covid measures to schools boards. The radio spot was declaring that the Ford government should be responsible for planning. Aren’t the school boards the so called “front line” people who should know the best way to introduce covid procedures in schools? Does the school board do anything except pick up a paycheque?
It took, what was it, 25 Years to develop a vaccine for the Spanish flu? And we’ll have a CCPV19 one in a year? Umm NO.
Obama, didn’t he win the Nobel Peace prize and then months later start a war in the Middle East (one of many conflicts)?
I said it with the CONservatives, and the same applies to the Liberals. Tear it down to the foundations, rebuild it, and then I might consider it. I don’t find myself “traditionally conservative”, I don’t really like labels. I think you should stand for what you believe in and what you feel will be the best course for Canada. Whichever Party that might be, that’s why I went PPC, hoping for change.
An argument I’ve tried to make when people say that Trudeau is a “traitor”. Maybe, but our government system allows him to do and say the things that have happened. I think we need changes in our Parliamentary system and should adopt some Republic ideals. If I had been elected Elections Canada was going to be the first department I was going after for reformation and change.
China has all of these little towns and then they build massive ghost cities where millions could live but no one goes. It’s crazy the way China has developed, it’s a model to the need for strategic sustainable planning.
The NDP wants a nice Spring bonus from the Liberals. The next election might come next Fall, but only if the CPC shifts the minds of Liberals against their leaders, or, and somewhat of a fantasy here, the Max Benier’s of the nation stand for the People and not their next Paycheque.
This website section uses a lot of satire and sarcasm to get points across. if you don't like it why are you reading this website at all?
