Talking Canadian Politics... Such As It Is :p

Well, I'm sure it will never get the traction that the U.S. Political thread does... but us Canadians are quite used to that after living next to the 800-pound gorilla for our entire existence

Still, I thought we should have a suppository repository for all things Canadian in politics. I'm sure most people find our political scene very quaint, especially in relation to others throughout the world and if you want to poke fun of it here, then have at 'er... Canadians "generally" have a good sense of humour

If you want to discuss other countries though, create your own thread or find the appropriate existing one, if you please.

Just to show an example of the difference in our political landscape, here is the latest tweet from the "Canada" twitter account...


Dayana Yastremska, Félix Auger-Aliassime, Fedex, The Stanimal, Naomi Osaka, The Dog Dolgopolov, Petr Korda, The Borg, Ana Ivanovic

and, of course, her majesty, la reine

The best site to learn about Canadian politics: The Rebel

This is how easy it's to legally switch gender in Canada:

I cannot name a single Canadian politician unless some of the ex-hockey players have gone to politics?

WTA players that have brought me the most joy: Belinda Bencic Martina Hingis Serena Williams BiancaNaochi Aļona Ostapenko Дарья Касаткина Lucie Šafářová

My motto is simple:

ABC - Anything But Conservative

Actually add Green to that list as well - they are the most ridiculous party in Canada and exist only to split the votes on the left. A vote for them is a vote for Conservatives.

Yup, some have in the past... Ken Dryden, Frank Mahovlich, Red Kelly, Syl Apps, etc. Jean Beliveau even turned down the job of Governor General... being a hockey personality is MUCH more important than being a politician in Canada

Here is our current Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau...

Except you never give examples.

If you really want to talk about raping and pillaging, tell the readers what the Liberals have done to Ontarians' cost of living with the BILLIONS of dollars of taxpayer money they flushed down the toilet in attempts to hold onto a couple of seats. And then had someone come in and smash all the computer hard drives with an axe in an attempt to cover up the evidence. Hillary could learn a thing or two from the Ontario Liberals.

Tell the readers about the expense accounts of all those people that went with Trudeau to the last climate conference. Tell the readers about the minister that spent thousands of dollars to have a professional photographer follow her around Paris, so that we peasants back in Canada could see her at work.

Tell the readers about the Ontario Liberal who spent thousands being swanned around Toronto in a limousine that was owned by a friend.

TLDR... I assume it is some lame attempt to deflect from the good work that Justin did with the Cancer Foundation

No, just wondering what example you might give.

Have to admit though that I did not expect you to give NONE.

You are like the Libertarian presidential candidate.
