    Out of curiosity, how do you observe Remembrance Day?

    Are you sure I haven't?

    Yup.

    Out of curiosity, do you?

    Since you're working, do you not get to honor your vets at their local service? Have a moment of silence? Attend a parade? Spend time thinking about your grandfather who served his country during the war? How does that work if you dont get the day off?

    If you have, good on you. If you haven't, I am not sure whats sadder... Not having already petitioned Ford or insinuating you already had.

    That's not really an answer to the question of "how".

    When we're not working my wife and I will usually go to the War Memorial.

    No.

    Yes.

    Not applicable.

    You get the shaft.

    The 'how' followed the 'confirmation'.

    So your observance of Remembrance Day is dependent upon both you and your wife having the day off work? What a shame.

    No, that was a bunch of questions.

    So basically when it falls on a Saturday or Sunday.

    It's almost like the feds should have told the provinces/territories to shut the fuck up when they opted out.

    Lol only you could turn the good news of a new stat holiday into a bicker-fest.

    Remembrance Day is a Federal stat holiday.

    And hell yes to another stat holiday in September.

    Not sure how it works in backwards ass Ontario but that will bring my yearly stat holidays up to 12. An average of 1 per month, fuck ya.

    I was ponting that it would be better if we observed actual important days before we start enacting made up ones in hopes of a re-election.

    The bickering was all you when you decided running down Ontario was the path you were going to take.

    I guess this scandal will be great news for Scheer and Bernier.

    Potentially good for Scheer and Singh. No one's going to be voting for Bernier though.

    Good for Scheer.

    I dont see Singh even meeting traditional NDP numbers. I respect the guy but I just dont see him as the leader of Canada.

    I've hilariously watched it since the day he was named leader. NDP'ers are looking for every excuse they can to not have to throw their support behind the turban wearing, brown guy come election day.

    Its got nothing to do with a turban. I grew up in a northern mill town, I am very comfortable with turban wearing brown guys as are most of northern industrial communities through our immigration policies and temporary foreign worker programs. I think the lack of leadership abilities, experience and policy specifics is what turns off many NDP supporters.

    But those weren't concerns when he was named party leader. Weird, right?

    I did enjoy your "I'm not racist, I have a lot of black friends" explanation though, lol.

    Go fuck yourself with that I have black friends bullshit.

    Im in a mixed race relationship with a mixed race child. I didnt think Singh was the best choice from the get go.

    That's odd. I don't remember you expressing that sentiment at the time.

    Feel free to prove me wrong.

    Any example of me stating Singh would be the best choice for NDP leader would suffice.

    I support the guy as their choice but I dont think he was the best choice.

    I don't remember you have a stated opinion of him one way or the other. If memory serves it was something vague along the lines of "I guess we'll see how it goes."

    I agree. I really wanted him to win the CPC leadership race. I think he'll struggle in his own party in a lot of ridings.

    Exactly, so your whole soap box rant about having black friends seems a little silly now doesn't it.
