David Frum's sister. What a deplorable family.

Also, I do find it amusing though that we have our own little birther controversy.  As pointless as it is.

Deutschland Deutschland über alles.
if you got caught saying that in germany, you'd probably get arrested ^^

Singing the German national anthem in Germany gets you arrested? Huh

That particular verse is quite frowned upon. But I'd imagine any sign of nationalism is frowned upon in Germany, unless it's at a soccer game.

Frowned upon =/= felony. Tongue

Thanks for the legal advice!

Only a fool would pass on the opportunity to elect the greatest artist of all time to the highest office in the land.

Ahh, another Springsteen vote?

Easy vote for Kanye.

Ha!

I get it though, there is, at least historically, a strong connection between the Maritimes and New England.  During the Great Depression, impoverished Maritimers would head south to find work. Today though, they tend to head west. The U.S. is not necessarily seen as the best option for a better life.

lol! The Bruins are not the most popular team in Atlantic Canada. They are a distant 3rd behind the Habs and the Leafs (I've done polling to back this up). And the Red Sox are only popular with olds. Overall, I'd say there are still more Jays fans.

Will need a bit more information for this fantasy timeline.

What happened to Trudeau?
Who are the leaders of the other parties?
Who is in government?
What electoral system is in use?

Oh, and we don't call them "Native Americans".

Anyways, I know I correctly predicted Justin Trudeau would become Prime Minister a whole 8 years before it happened (see this thread if you don't believe me: http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=66990.0), but I can't choose without more information. What I think is more likely to happen is that Trudeau will still be Prime Minister in 8 years.

The French in Maine are very different from the French in Louisiana...

Remember that LePage is 100% French Canadian. His first language is even French.
Bobby Jindal is Catholic.

Ahh, but Piyush's parents were Hindus.

Anyways, I'm expecting a 3-way fight in the provincial by-election, especially considering the Liberals will likely pick someone no one has ever head of.  They'll still win of course, but not in the usual landslide fashion.

Federally, the Liberals will come close to 60% (or more), especially if they pick someone like Mathieu Fluery. And then that will spark a municipal by-election and hopefully someone more progressive can replace him on city council. (Ottawa City Council is dominated by bureaucratic centrists Watsonites like Fleury)

"Labrador and Newfoundland" Huh

Scotland
England
Nova Scotia
Ireland

Watch the idiot mafia come and vote up BC, literally the worst province in Canada. (although I do adore the Selkirk mountains)

What exactly is wrong with BC? I've never heard anyone call it the worst province in Canada before. It has tonnes of natural beauty, and is neither the most left or right wing province.

Ottawa-Vanier. Vanier itself makes up only 15% of the riding.

Speaking of Native Americans, would this analogy be better if it were the 1600s, and the skittles were White people?

How well known is Pierre Ducasse in Quebec? It's really weird that he has been out of the spotlight over the last 5 years.

So, Brown basically won the Tory leadership by exploiting the sensibilities of activist so con group in a campaign that was never really exposed by the media (we all thought Elliott would win, right?); so now that he's the leader he can pivot and moderate himself.

A cynic's very definition of chameleon politician.

I do feel sorry for the socons. They're probably the most manipulated political group in the country. They're desperate to vote for that one pro-life candidate so they can feel good about not supporting a 'pro-murder' candidate.
22  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Canada General Discussion: Trudeau II on: September 19, 2016, 02:18:53 pm
The socons are the only thing stopping him from winning a landslide at this point.

Young people don't answer polls; I'd imagine their numbers would've been weighted up.

If the NDP pivots to the left in the next campaign, they should have no problems coming in 2nd place. Progressives will flock to them when they realize that the Liberals are too unpopular to be able to win again.

Of course, if the NDP runs another populist campaign against the inevitable blue tide, then the Tory landslide is going to be gross.

I know the Liberals have been predicted to lose the last few elections and haven't... but I think this time they are just too toxic.

Always nice to get a reminder of how radical some of you all are.

Being upset that armed thugs are murdering innocent civilians is radical now?
