  1. Yes, I understand the sentiment but I would need further convincing that disenfranchising some portion of the citizenry and denying them the right of representation they are currently guaranteed under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms would go any distance in lighting a fire under the butts of undefined 'non-contributors'. Who qualifies/who doesn't - there's a bureaucracy in the making. One person-One vote is a long sought goal around the world - why would we choose to go backwards?
  2. I'm sure the stay at home moms (and dads) would say 'that's about right, go for it'.
  3. Oh Hilary, please say yes - the country needs you! “Well, you know, I’d never say never to anything,”
  4. and few safe places these day for those that do....
  5. 'Don't take a chance, dump your stash,' says lawyer after Air Canada flight diverted to U.S. 'a passenger refused entry into a country because of cannabis possession is responsible for the consequences, including payment for the return trip home.'
  6. Think you were closer on your first kick at it - 'On June 28, 2019, Alberta Bill 3, the Job Creation Tax Cut (Alberta Corporate Tax Amendment) Act, was signed into law resulting in a reduction of the Alberta corporate tax rate from 12 percent to 11 percent effective July 1, 2019, with further one percent rate reductions to take effect every year on January 1 until the general corporate tax rate is eight percent on January 1, 2022. During the nine months ended September 30, 2019, the deferred tax expense of $140 million includes an adjustment of $55 million resulting from the re-measurement of the Company's deferred tax positions due to the Alberta tax rate reduction.' Oh well, Donald will appreciate the new payroll taxes from the high earning HQ jobs relocated to the US
  7. 'North99 advances progressive policies and ideas through media, advocacy, and campaigns'. No argument there.
  8. High Risk - 5 years in prison vs Low Reward - average $50/ea Four flight attendants arrested for smuggling thousands of dollars to ‘a known person,’ police say Wed Oct. 23, 2019 - The Washington Post By Lateshia Beachum A typical customs check at Miami International Airport turned into an arrest on money laundering charges for four American Airlines flight attendants Monday. Carlos Alberto Munoz-Moyano, 40; Maria Isabel Wilson-Ossandon, 48; Miaria Delpilar Roman-Strick, 55; and Maria Beatriz Pasten-Cuzmar are facing felony charges of money laundering and unauthorized money transmitting between $300 and $20,000, according to the Miami Herald. Alarm bells went off for a Customs and Border Patrol agent when Munoz-Moyano claimed to have only $100 on him after arriving from a Chile flight. The agent, however, found that Munoz-Moyano actually had $9,000. The discrepancy in the amounts caused Customs and Border Patrol agents to search the other flight attendants, the Miami Herald reported. Wilson-Ossadon had $6,371 on her and Roman-Strick had $7,300, leading agents to uncover $22,671 in total, according to CNN’s review of the police report. It’s unclear whether Pasten-Cuzmar had any money on her, but authorities said they did find out that she had plotted with the other three flight attendants to deliver the money to a “known person,” according to the Miami Herald. The four told law enforcement that they were supposed to get a 1 percent cut of the money that was found on them, according to the Miami Herald. American Airlines told the Miami Herald that the company takes the matter seriously and that it’s cooperating with law enforcement. If found guilty on money laundering charges, the flight attendants could face up to five years in prison.
  9. CNN beats Fox News by one important metric, but it may not want to brag about it 'news consumers are increasingly living in parallel universes of different, often conflicting information streams'
  10. Going for a hat trick - endorsed Hillary & Brexit No side
  11. One person, one vote? In Canada, it’s not even close The Fractured Right to Vote
  12. Poor form certainly, but don't think it meets the threshold to be considered a war crime.
  13. What actions under his command do you feel would constitute a war crime?
