Is a previously unheard-of First Nation just Canada’s latest Pretendian case?
  • Alongside banners commemorating missing and murdered Indigenous women and the victims of Canada’s residential school system, Confederate flags flap gently in the wind.

    Wow, I hate everything about that.

    With a little research these culture vultures could have used an actual local "rebel" flag, this one:

    Picture of the Metis Flag

    Red River Resistance

    But of course they appropriate a white supremacist flag from American history.

  • 'This is a Crime Ahainst Humanity': 600,000 Children in Line of Fire as IDF Moves on Rafah
  • You are putting the responsibility for those murders entirely on Hamas rather than the government currently perpetrating them, thus justifying that government's actions. You could have just as easily made your opening comment, "Man, if only Israel cared about international law." Please stop insulting my intelligence.

  • Grind rule
  • Emphasis on the sometimes. If you regularly put 80+ hours a week in even doing something you enjoy, eventually you will burn yourself out and there's a good chance you won't enjoy the thing anymore on the other side of that. Not for a long while, at any rate. Burnout is no joke.

  • Canada’s unions are united: Want our votes? Enhance our rights! | Canadian Labour Congress
  • Historically this isn't the case. Current polling does have Poilievre as the most popular choice among union members, however still at a lower rate than the Canadian average. So it seems like unions are stemming the growth of his support among its members somewhat, within the context of an overall upswell of Con support in Canada generally.

    A few drinks in, and I immediately start talking about the inevitable collapse of humanity in the hands of capitalism.
  • Yes, of course. Banning short term rentals for example is a regulation that would put downward pressure on housing prices. Banning investment companies such as Blackrock, Blackstone, etc from purchasing single family homes, duplexes, 4-plexes and the like would do the same. Whereas the lack of regulation around these things has contributed to home price inflation. The idea that people are unable to afford homes because there is too much regulation holds water like a sieve.

  • A few drinks in, and I immediately start talking about the inevitable collapse of humanity in the hands of capitalism.
  • Our current economic situation is the product of decades of regulation cutting supply side (aka neoclassical) economics championed by the likes of Thatcher and Reagan, which still dominates today. You know where housing is not unaffordable? Vienna, Austria. A place where better than half the residents live in social housing. The product of a strong government and regulation.

  • A few drinks in, and I immediately start talking about the inevitable collapse of humanity in the hands of capitalism.
  • Regulations help protect people from corporations. This libertarian take is total nonsense. What makes competition difficult for new entrants is the overwhelming size of modern day multinational corporations and the capital investment required to wage any sort of real competition which is something that is only going to be fronted by other extremely wealthy interests. So, yes, we do need bigger, stronger governments in relation to those very powerful corporations, specifically strong enough to break them up. Or ideally nationalize them entirely.

    NDP backs Tory push for national carbon price ‘emergency meeting’
  • The federal carbon price is not the “be-all, end-all” of climate policy, and New Democrats are open to alternative plans presented by premiers, NDP environment critic Laurel Collins said Wednesday.

    I mean, okay, but when those alternatives are developing LNG extraction and exporting, maybe those aren't good faith proposals.

  • B.C.’s credit rating takes 2 high-profile hits on the same day
  • “We believe that the province’s commitment to fiscal discipline and stability has wavered in recent years as B.C. has materially increased its spending for both operations and capital investment to unparalleled levels, while economic growth is slowing,” S&P said in its analysis.

    So, punishment for Keynesianism? Is this that foreign interference I've been hearing about?

    Surely Moody's would never utilize it's credit ratings dishonestly.
