I'd be wondering why a trade PAC would give me money in the first place, considering the kind of campaign I'd wage.

Another question- Are Toronto Wards simply half-ridings?

Yes. Also, I would suppose than there will be a rewarding before 2018 elections.

Probably. They're done more haphazardly in Ontario, we don't change them every 4 years like in Quebec.

We don't change them every 4 years. Yes, they must be reviewed every 4 years, but no change is usually done if the numbers are good enough. We also had cases where the city kept its map, but it was refused by Elections Quebec.


OK, a review must happen every 4 years. That doesn't happen in Ontario. Ottawa last changed its boundaries in 2006, and Toronto in 2000.

If you're young and you live in a Trinity-Spadina condo, you live there to be close to the night life, or at least you go there being tolerant of it.

Do you still think Horwath pulls the trigger?

I haven't heard anything different.

I'm 22. Wanting children would make an insane person.
This is the correct answer. Maybe it'll happen at some point, but it's certainly not something I have any interest in now.
There are pros and cons for having kids young, probably more cons overall, but the pro of being young enough to enjoy life after they leave is a huge one.  It seems like it would suck to be in your 60s when your last kid leaves the house.  It's probably best to wait though.

I was 24 when I had my daughter. It was a totally an unexpected and life changing experience. Maybe it would be nice to "have my old life back", but my life has purpose now. The main purpose in life is to reproduce, everything else in life is finding ways to sustain your life so that you can reproduce. So, I feel like I've done my duty to the human race.

Another thing about having children young is that biologically, we're supposed to have children at a young age. You also have enough energy to look after it properly.

I have one. I do not want another until she is much older. Since we're such young parents, we could easily have another child when she is 18. (My partner would be 38).

I think it's much preferable to space them out like that Smiley  So to answer the question, maybe 2?

Alright, let me clarify, this is an American Forum, and when I type the British way, the red squiggly line shows that it is incorrect, me, not wanting to seem like I've misspelled, I right click on the word and change it to the American spelling, it is annoying and a pain in the a**e but I hate that bloody squiggly line so much!

Blasphemy! No true Brit.. make that no true Commonwealth citizen would ever not spell the "British way". Unless they're French. Most people who use US spelling in Canada are French, somewhat ironically.

They usually have no clue than they are doing so, too.

It's amusing when a French Canadian spells it "center" considering the way it's spelled in French is also the commonwealth spelling. Same with defence/defense.

State full of white people doesn't see the need to repeal laws that are only enforced against brown people, more at eleven.

Not the most "responsible" comment ever written, but nevertheless your post made me laugh. Smiley

It's also quite true. Which makes it not really funny.

Whites and Blacks both use marijuana at the same rate, but guess which race is more likely to be incarcerated for it? And it's not even close.
