Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
[Canadian Politics] And now in Alberta... Unfortunate Acronyms
Status: Liberal Majority, Rt. Hon. Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister
Opposition party status:
Conservatives: Interim Leader, Rona Ambrose. Leadership race in progress. Candidates range from Progressive Conservative to Holy Crap You Really Want to Be Hitler!
NDP: So they don't want Thomas Mulcair to be their leader anymore, but nobody else seems to want to be leader either... and actually I have no idea what's going on with the NDP right now. Mulcair for now it is!
Everybody Else: Uh, the Bloc has an interim leader, and Liz May is still in Parliament for the Greens. So basically...
Current Government Projects: Marijuana legalization in 2017, backing down from electoral reform (boo), thinking about maybe having a national drug plan someday, creating pipeline policy that neither side likes (does that mean it's good?), figuring out WTF to do about US relations and Trump (I presume).
Premiers are angry about the environment and health care. I'm sure they're mad about transfer payments too. Alberta's governed by the NDP right now... will it last? BC's got an electon coming up in 2017. Ontario is not very fond of the Wynne Liberals, but the Conservatives keep electing the least likeable leaders possible. Quebec is busy watching the Denis Coderre Show. The prairies will get back to us when they thaw out in the spring. I tried to find out what's up in Atlantic Canada but all I got was stories about moose rescues and road washouts.
Territorial Status: Cold, with natural resources.
First Nations Status: Slightly less fucked-up than under Harper? Maybe?
