LOL of course, once the government opens up the vault, now everything should be "free".
Bunch more wanted oil subsidies to end( they don't have direct production subsidies) and give that money to people to use for electric heat.
Yes, always babbling about "oil subsidies" - without knowing what subsidies even are. It's like saying "we want to the rich to pay their fair share" - what does that even mean?
Just glad the majority voters recognize the NDP as a tax and spend party.
And recognize that it's just a party chocker-block full of really really bad ideas.
Epistemic insouciance is a casual lack of concern about the facts or an indifference to whether one's statements have any basis in reality. From now on the Liberal Party of Canada will be known as the "Epistemic Insouciance Party of Canada".

Imagine, a Conservative leader surprising the party by announcing he'd give us a carbon tax, just like the Liberals or NDP. And he did this without a policy convention, where a brawl would have broken out over a carbon tax.
Imagine, if you will, party conventions where policy is decided by brawl...

:topic: I'll be interested to see what deals Singh cuts with Trudeau over the next little while.
Me too. Considering that Singh is actually governing in good faith with the Liberals and implementing good social policies. Whereas the conservatives are fixated and distracted by Trudeau. And that is perfect for the Liberals. They can continue their mandate while the official opposition chases a laser (Trudeau) all over the place like a cat.

LOL - that one made me laugh, pretty hard. There is no "good faith" when dealing with the Liberals, and neither party is capable of generating even mediocre social policies. They're just both far far too dense.

Great post nucksRnum1, and so true! Sadly many - mostly those on the right - are far too dense to figure it out.
If you took time on Christmas Day to yell about politics on the internet you're a special kind of loser, and truly just the absolute worst.
