    I feel the opposite. Especially with Harper. I found him to be terribly dishonest, and condescending to the people. And Mulroney was just as sleazy as they come. His law firm went out of business under a cloud of allegations of "billing irregularities", to the surprise of no one on Bay...

    I'd settle for ethical and competent with a large dose of common sense. Mulroney had charisma up the ying yang, but was an incompetent fool

    But the thing you choose to go and on about is how much you personally dislike him. I really interested in what policies you think the Conservatives are going to do better in, given that they failed miserably under Harper and O'Toole hasn't told us anything, other than he's going to create a...

    #Canada150 (Canadian politics and related issues)

    I'm more concerned what he saying than how he says it. This focus on looks, likeability and anything OTHER than issues and platform, is a distraction from what really matters. I've also never noted a "condescending tone", which quite frankly may be YOU projected your dislike of Trudeau. I...

    He won't take a tested and scientifically proven safe and effective vaccine that would have saved his life, but he'll take untested, unproven animal wormer that some guy on the internet is promoting.

    I've participated in LOTS of polls. Every election cycle I get calls, sometimes more than one. I've also participated in political focus groups when I lived in Toronto. A free dinner and $50. Sure, I'll take part in your focus group.

    We can lay the early vaccine shortages on Donald Trump's doorstep. Canada was to get their Pfizer supplies from their factory in upstate New York, but after the US approved the Pfizer vaccine for use in the USA, Donald Trump signed and executive order that no American pharmaceutical...

    Not true, incompetent governance based on populist rhetoric, not practicalities is "something". It's not something I'd ever vote for, but it you can't say they have "nothing".

    #Canada150 (Canadian politics and related issues)

    Trudeau has really managed the whole ********* fight brilliantly. We always had good supplies of PPE. Testing ramped up quickly and well, and the public was kept well informed. But most of all, it's embarrassing how much vaccine we have. We're swimming in it. God bless everyone who has gotten...

    Communism: 100 Years of dictatorship, gulags and mass murder in the tens of millions

    You conflate socialism and communism. Yes, you do have to cite Haynes, Hollander and Lyons, because I have neither heard of nor read ANY of them. I even searched Amazon and came up empty on ANYTHING related to politics. But your recollections, and apparently these authors you cite, seem to...

    Communism: 100 Years of dictatorship, gulags and mass murder in the tens of millions

    I hadn't noticed any Gulags in Canada, Norway, or Great Britain, or any other socialist democracy. The gulags existed only in Communist Russia, and no one has every denied their existence. Your reading is simply "bias confirmation". Communism died in 1989. And there were never commies under...

    They not doing anything of the kind. Why do conservatives continually misrepresent the leftist policies?

    No concerts, no fire works, and too early for beaches. But it was beautiful and sunny and people were out in the parks.

    Why Does This Keep Happening: The Police Thread

    George Floyd wasn't resisting. Orlando Castille wasn't resisting. The black man who flagged down the police in the breakdown lane, and ended up dead, wasn't even under arrest - he was asking for help, but they shot him too. The list of black men shot in the back while running away, is endless...

    Eric Radford and Vanessa James to compete in pairs together for Canada

    And how would you know how Megan deals with people inside and outside skating? Do you know her personally? Do you know anyone who has every worked or trained with her?
