People need to learn how our system works.
Yes. Somehow some truly evil people, Justin and Jagmeet, have been allowed to usurp power. Truly a terrible day in Canada's history, to have such disgusting people able to make decisions on our behalf. Be gone you two scumbags! You are a blight on our country!!
That is a remarkably apt illustration of the Liberal’s point about not understanding how our democracy works. Also, darn fine example of hateful, divisive and unproductive rhetoric.

I’m confused why Merry and others are claiming there’s no timeline for the dental plan when there 100% absolutely is.

I’m also confused why people are claiming there aren’t enough details about said plan when a plethora of details have already been provided.

Confused still at people not being excited about this plan. Do that many people actually have employer-paid plans? I’ve never had a plan and literally no one I know has ever had a plan. Kudos to all of you who have been living high on the hog without paying $500 for a freakin’ root canal or like $200 for a simple cleaning and check with a dentist. It must be nice to not have to consider whether rent should be paid or a prolonged dental issue should finally checked and fixed.

Today, is an Opposition Day in Parliament. The NDP are proposing a motion that will remove all federal petroleum targeted tax subsidies and public subsidies (eg: government financing, loans, tax deferrals, etc.).The motion also includes a sections that would divert the savings over the next four years into an increase the implementation of green technologies and reduction of GHG.

It will be interesting to see how much support the motion receives. During the poorly attended debate, the NDP members pointed out that the petroleum companies are making record profits, still taking the subsidies, and yet dragging their feet on environmental improvements. Mr. Singh has pointed out that this motion shows that the the NDP in Opposition does not unconditionally support the government.

That is true, almost all Liberals have no clue how democracy works. And that's why we are stuck with such utter scum running our government now. As for my comments being "hateful", that's just freaking dumb to even go there.

This is insanely stupid, and incredibly hurtful to our economy. The NDP are a disease, and a blight on this country.

Let's hope Zero support. This is garbage.

Which will be whenever Justin thinks he has enough support to knife his new found cowardly pal Jagmeet in the back and roll the dice again on trying to get a majority. Hey, it's on $600 million of taxpayer money, well worth the risk.

Then the gas companies will just add on those loses of revenue back directly to the consumers.
Any way this plays out in this country, with the lack of policies, guidelines, controlled government environments, the consumers will just pay the price tag.

Great post Erin. The NDP are certainly conducting themselves as an effective opposition party, from which the CPC could learn a thing or two. Perhaps with the ever-crumbling CPC becoming less relevant by the day we will see the NDP become the official opposition in the next election.
Conservatives who spend all day, every day arguing with strangers on the internet are such embarrassing losers and truly just so dumb.

Yep. The NDP are brainless clods. Such utter fools.

Peterborough mayor calls on political leaders to condemn ‘unacceptable attack’ on Jagmeet Singh

Peterborough Mayor Diane Therrien calls on all political leaders to condemn the actions of protesters who harassed federal NDP leader Jagmeet Singh during his visit to the city last week.

Singh visited the city on May 10 to endorse provincial NDP candidate Jen Deck at her campaign office. Singh was met with a group of angry, abrasive protesters while entering and exiting the George Street office. Videos show some yelling profanities, giving Singh the middle finger and shouting, “You’re a f–king piece of s–t” and “You lying piece of s–t” and “traitor.”

Singh called it one of the “most intense, threatening, insulting” experiences in his political career noting he heard shouts of “I hope you die.”

A number of politicians have publicly condemned the attack while the Peterborough Police Service — which says it was not aware of Singh’s visit — is investigating the incident. RCMP officers are also reviewing the incident.

On Tuesday morning outside city hall, Therrien called it an “unacceptable attack” on Singh, saying it has been “one of many” in the community and others in recent months. She was joined by councillors Stephen Wright, Kemi Akapo, Kim Zippel, Keith Riel and Henry Clarke.

On Sunday, the day after Biden called Putin a butcher and said he could not remain in power, French president Emmanuel Macron warned against the use of inflammatory language in an already volatile situation. Britain also distanced itself from the US comments.

In Canada, all businesses can deduct certain expenses and the natural gas and oil industry is no different. Tax measures are not subsidies. A true subsidy confers a benefit on one sector or company that is not available to others.

Legitimate tax measures are available to all industries. The government’s goal is to ensure the neutrality of the tax system between sectors that differ in their capital intensity, revenue stream generation, and production lifecycle, thereby removing any tax bias against them.
Under Canada’s current tax system, all businesses can deduct capital costs, so categorizing the natural gas and oil sector as subsidized implies that all industrial sectors are subsidized.

So what exactly does the NDP want to abolish so the government can subsidize weather dependent windy /solar projects?
