I was watching videos from around the world, take a look to Canada and !!! I'm so clueless about Sikhs as MPs. And even the conservatives have at least one member! Someone knows some article or book of sikh integration in Canadian politics? Sorry for my English, I'm quite drunk.

Don't know of anything Sikh specific, but here's a quick general analysis:

Canadian politics is somewhat different than other Western nations in part because the main right wing party actually does ok with immigrants. In fact, the Tories did better with immigrants than natives last time.

Img


Canadian politics is better understood by viewing each ethnic/religious group individually, rather than looking at a white vs. minority divide. For example, Jews & Chinese tend to vote Conservative, Arabs tend to vote Liberal, and I believe Aboriginals mostly vote NDP.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think Sikh's are somewhere in the middle.

South Asians tend to vote NDP or Liberal depending on where they live. They even vote Conservative... in Alberta, just like everyone else (where their Sikh MP is from). BTW, you only saw him because parties like to keep their white males in seats that are normally off camera.

Good news for anybody who dreams of living vicariously as a crooked, elderly Senator: Mike Duffy's fastidious diary has been made public.

I particularly am baffed about why Duffy was contracted to write jokes for the leader of the Scottish Democrats.

One surprising thing from his diary is that he "only" weighs 260 lbs. That's less than ODF!

Hatman, RogueBeaver, and all other aficionados of Canadian politics, question:

Has the bloom come off the Trudeau rose?

From sources I have read, Harper is back on top in leadership questions and polls are showing the Conservatives would take more seats than the Liberals.

Your take?

Yes to both questions. Though Harper had almost always led on PPM and economic management. We Quebecers know Justin far too well, it was an Ontarian fling.

There's still a bit of bloom. We won't see the anti-Harper vote shift much until the campaign. Then it's anybody's guess.

It was a western/atlantic fling as well. The liberals at times were projected to have a higher percent of western seats than under Chretien's majorities. But now the liberals have gone from 1st to 3rd in BC in the last few polls. Trudeaumania has been confined to the GTA and Atlantic for now.

Senate Speaker Pierre-Claude Nolin died last night. RIP. Harper will have to name a replacement.

In light of Bevan-Baker's recent win, what strategy should to expand their beachheads federally and in NB/PEI?

I doubt the federal Greens can win in those ridings. They are too large for personal campaigns to break through. Nonetheless, the Greens will be focusing their vote like they did NB/PEI, albeit in different parts of the country like Victoria. I don't think any Atlantic ridings are high enough on their radar yet.

Fredericton South was a good fit for the Greens, but I don't know anything about Bevan-Baker's district. Is it any more inclined to support the Greens than somewhere else on the island?

From Monacle Radio's 'The Entrepreneurs':
A special episode featuring an in-depth look at the entrepreneurship scene in Montreal and the business minds on a mission to reclaim the glory of Quebec’s largest city.

Included was a segment on Montreal's thriving small retail shop scene and a segment on PKP.

Wow. I'm watching it now and it is one of the worst things I've ever seen. What is it with Green Party leaders?

The Tories are contemplating allowing voluntary contributions to CPP.

I'm glad to see them come around on this issue. I only wish it was mandatory Tongue

It was a trial balloon so no details yet... but yeah I'd assume that.
