We should probably put in some episodes of "Due South" (which was a fantastic series. I'm gonna have to revist that in another 5-10 years.) and Trailer Park Boys.
Never said you were Liberal. I was just pointing out the stats. For me, the old Reform now CPC seems to hold closest to my views.
They could roll the CRTC stuff into Industry Canada, ditch the political crap, and everyone would be happier. And I suspect more would get done.
For what it's worth, losing the Canadian market would be roughly the equivalent to losing the California market for them as far as population goes. From a regulatory perspective, it'd be even easier.
Will it also fix that attitude of his?
When you consider that this is actually fairly typical of the returns in any Canadian federal election since the 1950s, then I can make the same claim of many Liberal governments as well, except for the bias towards Ontario in those cases. The west votes Conservative for some very good reasons (NEP and CWB for starters).
>The most telling artefact of CanCon is still the radio though, try listening to a rock station for more than a day in a row without hearing at least one Rush, Guess Who or Nickelback (ugh) track. I don't mind some of it but you can tell when it's Canadian percentile block time and you'll want to shoot yourself in the face with a 22
Crap like that is the reason I don't listen to domestic music radio. Ever. Period. I listen to the local news/traffic station and the rest of the time, it's satellite radio.
As for the 22, I'll need to see your firearms permit before you discharge that firearm.
They tried this a few years back out east. Needless to say, they kinda had to back off due to the backlash. I'm sure they'll try again though.
Clothing is tarriffed on import. I know, I got nailed with that when I came back from India a few years back.
There is no real "canadian culture" where mass media is concerned. As for the definition of Canadian Culture, I think the best one I've heard is, "It's not american".
My nickel (now that we no longer have pennies).
It's a good start, but alternators are terribly inefficient so you'll want to learn to wind your own generators.
One solution would be to rearrange the cells in new prisons to allow them to communicate with a small group of other prisoners even while isolated. Perhaps if they were placed in such a way as to allow them to physically interact at even a distant level so they can play cards or board games.
The current system is complete isolation but it may not be necessary. Just high isolation may be enough to keep the danger level down but the mental health of the prisoners up.
We have them already. They're called "hoodies".
France really isn't. They don't perceive any sort of attack on their culture and every one of their neighbours speaks a different language (except Belgium, which speaks French). Quebec, on the other hand, is smack dab in the middle of an English speaking CONTINENT. All their neighbours speak English and they perceive any anglo encroachment as an attack on their culture. The Supreme Court of Canada has ruled Bill 101 and other language laws as unconstitutional, but by invoking the Notwithstanding Clause they are able to ignore that ruling.
Personally, I think all anglos should run, not walk, to an english speaking jurisdiction. Let Quebec die under the weight of their language storm troopers.
As someone who is from, and living in, B.C., I can confirm that more people speak Mandarin than French here.
