Canadian Politics / Re: The national debt is approaching...
« on: October 15, 2015, 01:58:40 PM »
Well people, get Liberals into government and the debt will be much higher.
Do we really want to do that?

Canadian Politics / Re: Mandatory voting

I agree, forcing people to vote is not a democratic way of running the country.
But the government should do whatever possible to make people go to the polls voluntarily, because they want to be involved. Getting the younger population to vote is also very important.

Let's get back to a more interesting question like how many seats the Liberal government will have after the 19th.
I hope as few liberals get into parliament as possible. I hate too see this country getting into more debt. It just means that regular taxpayers will have to pay it off in the future. Do we really want to make lives of our children and grandchildren miserable?
They say they will create jobs with the money they borrow? What kind of jobs and how many?
They always create Tim Horton type of jobs with minimum pay, not a well paying manufacturing jobs.
I will not vote for Liberal government, prefer to stay the safe route with government that took us through major recession almost untouched while the US and most of the world struggled.
That is my take on it.

I think you should be fine.

All of Canada / Gender neutral washrooms, they are coming!
« on: March 28, 2014, 09:56:16 AM »
BC is working on implementing gender neutral washrooms in public buildings and parks. It comes after complains from transgendered individual about harassment in the regular bathrooms. This type of bathrooms are already installed or about to be installed in Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan and Alberta. Now they are asking public what sign should be used for these bathrooms, I am attaching two suggestions being considered.
What do you think about this trend in Canada?

All of Canada / Re: Prison population at all times high in Canada
« on: March 28, 2014, 09:49:19 AM »
I am not sure if the size of current prison population is justified but I think that there are other methods of punishment which cost less and are benefiting the rest of community where the damage has been done, like voluntary work.
And prisoners who are locked up should be working anyways to help support the cost of running the prison system. The work should be mandatory and I am sure the government can hire knowledgeable people who can find niche for businesses which can employ convicts and profit. If you just think of the many various items used in government offices every day even supplying them with prison workforce instead of buying them from regular distributors would yield big savings and would help to offset the cost of running prisons.

Newfoundland and Labrador / Cape St Mary Ecological Reserve
« on: March 24, 2014, 01:51:43 PM »
Just looked up some info about Cape St Mary Ecological Reserve in Newfoundland. It seems like a great destination. No wonder, Newfoundland is great place to admire Canadian landscape. It might be one of the best destinations to visit in Canada.
Do you have your favourite destination? Would you share it with the rest of us?
Summer is coming and road trips are one of Canadian favourites.

BC / Alice Munro to be on Canadian Mint silver coin.
« on: March 24, 2014, 01:39:52 PM »
Alice Munro, renowned Canadian writer and Nobel Prize laureate will be honoured with a silver collector coin.
She was first Canadian woman to win Nobel literature prize and only second Canadian to win Nobel Prize in this category.
Citing her poor health she sent her daughter to Stockholm last December to accept the Nobel Prize on her behalf.

The one Super Dave used?
I guess they will have to be imported since Saskatchewan is land locked:)

I am not big on movies but just recently I have seen "Machine Gun Preacher" which came out last year.
I think it is a great movie showing some horrible African reality.

Canadian Financial Trends / Re: Who are your bullion dealers?
« on: December 24, 2012, 12:29:47 PM »
I have never really tried investing in gold or any other precious metals. I guess you would have to buy the bigger bars/stock to make it worth the trouble? Not sure how this works but if you or anyone familiar with this type of investments would like to share some info it would be great.

General Discussion / Re: What province are you guys from?

I am from Ontario, and this year the old man winter seems to treat us very gentle yet again, wonder for how much longer?

All of Canada / Re: Best Christmas Wishes
« on: December 24, 2012, 11:34:52 AM »
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.

It is crazy with all the mass shootings down south becoming more frequent. I just do not understand the idea that every regular citizen needs the option to own a fire arm. I mean if you are so desperate to shoot guns you can get enlisted in US Army, go to Afghanistan and shoot as much as you ever wanted.
I have recently read that since Australia introduced new gun laws in late 90s  after the Port Arthur Massacre there was no large scale gun killing in that country. Whoever wants to own a gun has to get permit and the gun is registered to him/her with serial number. I think it is about US introduced some similar laws, otherwise with no serious control over guns it will next to impossible to change anything.

Canadian Politics / Re: Should Canadians be able to vote online?
« on: December 20, 2012, 07:44:06 AM »
I agree that it is very important to vote. I think that choosing the party to vote for is extremely hard with so many broken election promises the faith in them has been broken. Instead of tackling the true problems they more often than not create artificial issues to take the pressure off items that really should be taken care of. And the problem is they are all doing this stuff. So who do you choose?
On the other hand getting McGuinty elected second time after breaking most of his promises and rising taxes shows that we like being lied to, at least almost half of us enjoys it.
