Just Not ready

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

Just Not ready

Post by Topper »

.......so much for electoral reform - thank Christ

During the Election
We are committed to ensuring that 2015 will be the last federal election conducted under the first-past-the-post voting system.
Today
A new mandate letter issued to Minister of Democratic Institutions Karina Gould, released publicly on Wednesday, says "changing the electoral system will not be in your mandate."
LOL

Finally figured out Canadians want no part of any contrived proportional ballot.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

Cover of the Rolling Stone is a song about the Trudeau family.

The funniest is when someone speculated that Margy was awfully friendly with comrade castro around conception time and the striking resemblance our right honourable pie minister shares with him.

Good thing Justin packed so many changes of spiffy pajamas for his family vacation in India.

I wonder how he sleeps knowing he invited a convicted terrorist to dinner?

That's him stepping off the plane this morning.

Someone suggested he should have stepped off a half-hour earlier.

That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for peoplekind.

The Gripen seems almost built for Canada. Lower operating cost, capable of operating from austere conditions, yet performance to rival "the big boys". Like the Canadian military, the Gripen can "punch above its weight".

If that was not enough, Saab offers impressive industrial offsets to buyers. The recent deal with Brazil resulted in local assembly and transfer of technology.

Yeah, what can I say? The similarities between Canada and Sweden are many.
Cold. Sparesly populated. Pulling above its weight. Big agressive bully next door... :wink:

Canada had already decided on the F-35. A change of government in both countries has scuttled that.

Typical in Canadian military procurement, contracts are abandoned when there is a change in government and manufacturers kickbacks need to be re routed to new constituents.

Then there was the endless Canadian government bailouts of Quebec based Bombardier with it's struggling commercial passenger aircraft competing with similar efforts of F-35 maker Boeing combined with a new US regime that looks less favourably at foreign governments subsidizing competing businesses.

Bombarier ends up selling off it's aircraft efforts to Airbus, Canada still buys a Boeing product albeit an aged used product that will have similar maintenance issues as Canada's existing fleet.

Canada still doesn't have a modern aircraft to replace the F-18.

I'll get back to this when i have more time.
Long and short; The new, (newer) versions of the F-18 are still the best for Canada's needs.

Nobody has commented on the new changes to impaired driving laws the Liberals snuck in. I think it’s disgusting and a complete erosion of our rights
