51  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: NH close to becoming 19th state to abolish the death penalty on: April 13, 2014, 02:03:07 am
Totally unrelated:

NH has a House with 400 members ?

In a state with only 1 Mio. people ?

Tongue

It has a wonderful ratio of 1/3300 (using single and multi-member seats, from 1 to 11).

Dorgan and Conrad aren't in the senate anymore? Who the eff are North Dakota's senators?

They retired in 2010 and 2012.

My reaction is meh. On one hand no more Anders, on the other a Red replacing a Blue in Alberta. So hoping for a Blue challenge in '19.

Must I remember than Conservatives automatically reselected incumbents in the last elections (this time, it's only because of redistricting)?

Well, let's me honest, it's not Liepert winning, it's Anders losing.

Now, we have CBC Calgary twitter feed, too (but, with the cuts, they probably covering it by reading Twitter).
56  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Canada General Discussion 1.5: The Countdown Begins on: April 12, 2014, 10:39:50 pm
But Calgary Herald is saying than Liepert won.
57  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Canada General Discussion 1.5: The Countdown Begins on: April 12, 2014, 10:33:37 pm
The rumor is than delays are caused by recount(s).
58  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Canada General Discussion 1.5: The Countdown Begins on: April 12, 2014, 07:58:32 pm
Later tonight, we should know if Conservative MP Rob Anders is reselected for Calgary-Signal Hill. He faces an high-profile PC MLA.

It's called a race between the two wings of the Alberta CPC, but Rob Anders issues should be kept in mind (falling asleep, calling Mandela a terrorist, saying than Mulcair caused the death of Layton....)

Either it's government, either it's Turkey.

Euan Blair looking at Bootle apparently.

He's hoping to ride in on Cherie's "local roots". Roll Eyes

Some people are speculating it's false and than it was invented by the MP, who just lost its automatic reselection, in hope than the party members will choose to keep him, fearing Euan possibility.

What's happening in the Québec City area? A Péquiste in the city centre, and Liberals around it. I know Lévis was the Canadian Alliance's strongest riding at federal level, so the CAQ vote is not surprising on the south shore.

Probably due to the candidate. At the 2003 by-election, they finished 6th, behind the green and almost tied with Marijuana Party.

I wonder if Flaherty's wife will run?

It must be shock to suddenly lose a spouse like this - I wonder more whether she might not run federally OR provincially (given that if there is an Ontario election this spring she'd have to run for re-election)

It wouldn't be the first time a wife ran to fill her husband's seat after he dies.

His wife is alreayd the MPP for Whitby-Oshawa and deputy PC leader (and a sure minister if Hudak win). I don't see why she would do that.
63  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Which kitchen would you prefer? on: April 10, 2014, 11:34:36 pm
Good job! I didn't pick up on your use of parody until your comment about those stools with the thick cushions, as being uncomfortable. I should have realised earlier, in hindsight, describing cramped as "functional" should have been something of a giveaway, especially when the first kitchen has so much prepatory space, and also your reference to a cluttered pile of unwashed dishes in the sink as something desirable, rather than as a hygiene issue.

The microwave in the second picture is also a safety hazard - completely insane to heat, for example, a bowl of soup in the microwave - and then burn your fingers and let go of the bowl... while it is over your head.

As for the skillet and olive oil, as MaxQue said - the olive oil is probably in the cupboard next to the stove, and the skillet is probably in the deep drawer below the stove top. That other kitchen is so cluttered it would be a challenge finding anything. The neat order of the first kitchen is much easier to navigate.

What is it like being awful ?

My apologies, I didn't mean for you to take it that way. I didn't expect you to take my criticism of the second kitchen so personally. I'm sorry for any offence I caused.

I'm led to believe than it's a picture of his kitchen.

I could totally see the culprit as one of the many Hillary haters on this forum.

No, since it's a woman. We don't have women here.

Thanks. I hope PKP runs and they elect him leader.

On that point, I obviously disagree with you.

I can't support that enemy or labor and workers. He was a terrible and oppressive boss at Quebecor and is still the owner of Sun News, home of Quebec-bashing.

I can't neither support Bernard Drainville, the father of the Charte.

Given RB's opinion of PQ, I suspect he wants him to be elected leader due to the damage it would cause the party. I could be misinterpretting, though.

Well, I'm pretty sure than Péladeau could be an asset to get back some CAQ voters (at the price of a leakage to QS). I suppose than RB likes him because he is the one the most likely to support right-wing economics.

No, rather whats happen when we let the insanes rule the asylum.
69  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Canada General Discussion 1.5: The Countdown Begins on: April 10, 2014, 01:45:33 pm
I'm very shocked by that event, obviously. Reminds me of Claude Béchard, a few years ago.

I pretty much never agreed with him, but, death is always a sad thing. No doubt he always did what he thought was the best for Canada and his legacy will continue to affect Canada for a long moment.

RIP.

He can't. Interim leader can't run for leadership.
Plus, election is tonight, and he isn't a candidate. Through, Bédard is rumored to be a proxy for him.

The caucus will vote until one gets 50%.

Too bad than saying stupid things like him doesn't cause him to be a poor person.

And it doesn't look like if someone will get a majority, but I'm not on the ground, so, I might be biaised.
74  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Ontario election, Spring 2014? on: April 09, 2014, 05:37:25 pm
I see than Hudak continues to be an liability.
75  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Quebec: April 7, 2014 on: April 08, 2014, 10:21:04 pm
I have sat through many election nights.  The longest was 2000 Bush v. Gore; the shortest was the 2003 Toronto municipal election - 80% of the polls reported by 8:05 while I was still in my car.

But I have never seen anything comparable to what happened to the CAQ last night.  With half of the ridings reporting around 8:30pm, the CAQ was leading in just one seat (according to the CBC).  When all the results were tallied, the CAQ managed to win 22 ridings.  Sometimes you get bizarre preliminary results when elections stretch across five time zones, but I haven't seen such an extreme case.

To reduce delays, election offices are also to start counting early voting at 6PM. So, these results were early voting.
