Poilievre Could ‘Drop Hard and Fast’
  • Not wanting to vote for any of them doesn't mean I won't vote, I will absolutely vote.

    I've liked Trudeau for a long time, I just don't think he's a winner right now. The liberals were the only party that could have gotten Canada through the Trump years, and they did a good job during the pandemic. They're a good steady state party that has done decent foreign policy, and decent economic policy, and they've had a long run.

    But on other issues they've been very middle of the road when we have really needed policy change, housing being the biggest one where action was clearly needed 2018, before the pandemic. Adding the mortgage stress test was a good step, but the first time home buyer plan and savings accounts did nothing, all their policy did was push demand without anything robust pushing supply.

    I actually like the carbon tax, but I wish they hadn't folded on home hearing oil, they should have managed that better.

  • Yes, I miss Layton

    I don't know why the NDP hasn't come out swinging with a platform of no tax increases for the middle class, we're going to bolster healthcare and take it off the hands of small businesses to turn it into a real benefit of doing business in Canada, and make it easier for small businesses to start up and compete, so your jobs aren't going away.

    Give the average Joe job security, health security, and real opportunity, and then see how excited people can get.

  • Seasoned pollster Nik Nanos says he has never seen a political landscape quite like the one in Canada right now.

    For months, the Conservatives have enjoyed a double-digit lead over the Liberals. Does that mean it is a slam dunk that Pierre Poilievre will be Canada’s next prime minister?

    “Absolutely not,” Nanos says. “If Pierre Poilievre makes a mistake, his drop will be hard and fast. And that is true if anyone next to him makes a mistake. I think the Conservatives have to realize that it’s not that they’re winning, it’s that the Liberals are losing. It is not a validation of Conservative policy.”

    As for the NDP, Nanos thinks that with their numbers dropping in every byelection since their deal to support the Liberals, the deal will soon come to a close. That’s because the party will need a “six-month cooling off period,” to establish their own identity before voters next head to the polls.

    I'm inclined to agree. None of the parties are running anyone I remotely want to vote for, which is kind of insane.

    Dump Trudeau at this point. I think he thinks he's falling on his sword, but he's dooming the party. The OLP lost party status, I honestly could see that kind of result happen to the LP. If rather another Ignatief or Stephan Dion placeholder who you wouldn't question as opposition leader than the party to get wiped out.

    Dump Singh, have you ever seen a less inspiring leader? He's rich and doesn't connect with the blue collar workers that the NDP should lean on. The NDP should be able to put forward a worker first platform that attracts a lot of southern and northern Ontario, easy, and probably appeal to Quebecors and environmentalists. .

    Dump Polloevre, or don't, I'm not Conservative anyways. But Otoole was at least palatable to this lowercase liberal. Polluevre is a human shit stain wholly say anything to anyone to win. I don't trust him, I don't like his politics, I don't like his policy. The Construction needs to stop yelling freedom and pretending their the Republicans, because it's not a healthy position here in Canada.

  • Andy Samberg Reflects on Walking Away From ‘SNL’: “It Was Taking a Heavy Toll on Me”
  • I’m not his biggest fan, but good for him getting out when it felt like it was time to move on. B99 was great, he’s a very funny guy!

    There’s a watched a show called The Dark Side of Comedy and SNL sounds like it can just chew up a comedian.

  • sometimes means every time
  • I don't like that news... It doesn't sound wholly wrong but I do focus too much, daydream (it's more getting lost in my own thoughts than dreaming), and I'm very bad at finding things in looking for.

  • That’ll be Why the Median is Barely Over 40
  • I lament statements like this because I work with statistics and you can't just make them say anything. I hate that people use this to dismiss real facts.

    You always have to look at the distribution, which is hard to do well. Simple statistics and averages hide so much detail, it's often ineptitude more than outright deceit.

  • How come Data has rights but not the legacy EMH?

    I just watched Measure of a Man, they rule Data has the right to choose. But in Voyager the EMH gets relegated to forced servitude. Why? Doesn’t that violate precedent?

    Poilievre says 'biological males' should be banned from women's sports, change rooms and bathrooms

    Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre stepped into the debate over trans rights on Wednesday, saying "biological males" should be banned from women's sports, change rooms and bathrooms.

    "Female spaces should be exclusively for females, not for biological males," Poilievre said in Kitchener, Ont.

    The Conservative leader made the comments after being asked if, as prime minister, he would introduce legislation to prevent "transgender women" or "biological men" from participating in female sports or entering female prisons and shelters.

    "A lot of the spaces … are provincially and municipally controlled, so it is unclear ... what reach federal legislation would have to change them," Poilievre said.

    "But obviously female sports, female change rooms, female bathrooms should be for females, not for biological males," he added.
