What we're they saying?

Oh c'mon Ka el, you know I can't really read that well ,but ya...I've looked into it once or twice.
What Canadian federal political party registered or deregistered do you hate the most Kael ?

Some may view my above politically incorrect opinions as 'harsh' and may even be offended by them. Some think political correctness will be our undoing. Save the planet, spay or neuter your kids.

Hmmm. I'd never given that question much thought. I do know that with our FPTP system we are unlikely to have members from the Christian Heritage Party, Communist Party or Marxist-Lenin Party having a voice in Parliament - unlike the more populist system of proportional representation. I personally believe we are better off with a less divisive political system.
You know our educational system is failing us when we have posters who
think liberals are “far left”, and conservatives are “kind of in the middle”
