Canada? The country with a good economy, comparatively low unemployment, no dipshiat culture wars, a wealthy populace, and a functional government?

Pfft. Who would want something like that.

That's the way Canada is now, Harper wants to change all of that according to the headline. He didn't say that though, I Imagine saying something like that would be political suicide. I don't think too many people outside of the US admire the Republican party. Or inside it really.

Canada is doing reasonably well, yet apparently Harper still needs to slash our research centres and destroy decades of valuable data.

Because firing scientists, closing our archives, and throwing out knowledge of things like our lakes' water quality, our fish stocks, and arctic environmental data could in no way come back to bite us in the ass.

it is a bloodbath now for Government scientists in the Federal Government. Very sad to see people dedicating their life to science kicked out on the street at 50+ years old. Not many options for environmental scientists with principles out there.

Now, when the industry scientists tell us that there is no risk in fracking or other such shiat, we will just have to take their word for it.

Side note, if you think CO2 is bad, wait for the Canadian the tundra to thaw and release methane into the atmosphere. Methane is 72 times more potent than CO2 in terms of green house effect. It would be nice if we had scientists to keep an eye on this but a Conservative government is why we can't have nice things.

The American goal is obviously to be more like Pakistan. People pay virtually no taxes - if you can afford it, you buy it yourself. You get your own private security for safety, send your kids to private school, fly them to the best doctors in Europe, and have your own generators for electricity. A wall around your home will help too, so you're protected from the 99% of the population that is too poor and lazy to have any of these things.

The only role government should have is to make sure the state religion is upheld, and to keep the military super strong.

You libtards want a middle class go join a labor union in Germany. The rest of us will be moving this country along to join the rest of the first world like Pakistan and Costa Rica.

Good economy due to the liberals in the 90s
Canada's unemployment rate is 7.3, U.S.A's is 8.3..is that a big difference? I'm not sure

We don't have culture wars like the U.S but we have Quebec that always threatens to secede, Alberta who's wanted to put a firewall around them, and our provincial bickering puts the US state bickering to shame Everyone who doesn't live in Ontario hates Ontario,. Same with Alberta now and Quebec.
We all think the Newfies are weirdos and the British Columbians are hippies.
Wealthy populace? Not so much. Our middle class is disappearing just like the U,S.
Functional government? We've had like 4 federal elections in the last 6 years.

don't take Tylenol 24 hours before or after drinking alcohol, it will cause liver disease. Stick to advil if you drink regularly. Seeing as you are a Farker, I'm playing the percentages here.

We'll see what the courts do with the robocalls thing. 7 ridings are being challenged in a court case that takes place in December. Might be a new election before 2015.

He was the most sincere politician we had, probably ever. He was a martyr though.He should have rested and took care of himself instead of traveling all over the country during the election. I think he tired himself out, weakened his body a lot more and then the cancer took him.

I'm not sure who this was meant for... but Tylenol PM has Benadryl mixed in, while the Tylenol muscle relaxant has methocarbamol. Codeine is codeine. 

Oh, and Shopper's Drug Mart has allergy medicine with pseudoephedrine available without restriction.

Not originally, they fixed the budget mess the NDP/Cons left us with. Further the corruption was rampant. This last term it is, well - Power Corrupts.

I was on a flight to Vancouver from Toronto and he showed up late, delaying the flight. He took first class while his assistant went coach. This was in November 09 and it ruined my opinion of him as a working man. He was just like the rest of them, but with more charisma.
