    A thread for Canadian politics.

    A catch all thread for Canadian topics, mostly politics.

    Serious discussions preferred.

    Anyone who votes NDP is at least half retarded. The liberals under Trudeau are cucking the fuck out of Canada.

    The only real solution is Maxime Bernier in 2019.

    I liked jack, thought he was a decent human that wanted good things for the country and would've voted for him if he had lived but the Ndp kinda blow goats in general. That being said, Harper was a fascist (and since Ambrose left today the pc have no leader) and Justin's so fucking into making gender pronouns a legally punishable issue that I want to strangle him with one of his fathers capes.

    Canadian politics may be nicer mr speaker but they're still fucked right up.

    Trudeau violated conflict guidelines amid KPMG probe, ethics advocacy group says
    Trudeau is again violated his own conflict of interest rules, this seems a lot more serious than the free Bahamas vacation.

    Someone who has experience with Canada's efforts to improve our relationship with and the opportunities for Aboriginal / First Nations people in Canada.

    If we had a head of RCMP who was First Nations, it would be huge for Canada's current move towards righting the wrongs done to our First Nations people through our history of colonization.

    Right, shoehorn a minority in a position of power so us corny white folk can feel better about ourselves (yawn). Head of the RCMP needs to be impartial, not someone who's going in with a chip on his shoulder or is going to be pressured into advocating more for a particular group.

    First Nations people have been wronged, but they have a lot of work they need to do within their own community first. A lot of problems that only they can solve, that can't be washed away with a tax-dollar shower.

    Wanting to hire someone based on gender, race, or sexual orientation is discrimination in its most base form. They should be appointing someone that will address the departments incredible history of corruption period end of story. The RCMP needs an enema, but this government seems more than okay with them turning Canada into a police state.

    On a related note. I realize Trudeau's way of firing people has been by letting them resign or "shuffling' them off to some new role, but guys like Sajjan and Paulson need to be fired. The Canadian public needs to shown by its leader that gross incompetence and damaging negligence will not be tolerated.

    Anyone here foolish enough to think we'll pay less for our dairy/poultry without supply management?
