    The reactions to that chart are kind of amazing. I started seeing it bouncing around a couple of days ago, and the number of people I've seen claiming the CBC endorses political candidates - or that their favorite paper on that list doesn't - is pretty ridiculous.

    I really, really, really can't wait for the "facts don't matter" fad to start dying out.

    Unfortunately politics everywhere seem to be veering away from who has the best platform and who can make the best argument and towards who can make voters feel good about them.

    Ford didn’t even have a platform other than “Liberals are bad” and he won. Trump won on a platform of “I hate people you hate and also trust me on everything”, beating out someone with loads of experience and a well thought out platform.

    We need a return to evidence based politics real soon... I’m just not sure the pendulum is swinging the right way for that to happen atm

    Bit of good news.

    Singh says he won't prop up a con minority.

    https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/singh-scheer-minority-1.5256647


    "The resurfacing of Andrew Scheer's disgusting prejudice against LGBTQI2S+ people and families is very painful for many Canadians," Singh said in his statement.

    "This is exactly why, if Canadians deliver a minority government in October, I will not prop up Andrew Scheer and the Conservatives. We can't trust Mr. Scheer or his caucus to champion the fundamental rights of Canadians."

    Heh, look what popped up related to this:

    I can't find the actual poll link itself right now but things are so fucked in Ontario voter sentiment has swung 25! Points from con to liberal.

    Doug Ford is Fucking the chances of the national Conservatives in just an amazing way.

    Gah. Outside of Albertan conservatives parties polling in the high forties isn't a thing that's supposed to happen in this country.

    I mean, I'll take it in this case, but I'm still boggling at that kind of a jump.

  • EntriechEntriech Registered User regular
    I mean, if I'm not mistaken the last week of news has basically been that the Ford government is moving ahead with a variety of cuts and pushing costs down to the municipal level, and the best they've had to say about it is that there'll be some interim funding to cover 'adjustment'. I'm not surprised the response has been overall negative.

  • ZibblsnrtZibblsnrt Registered User regular
    So the company which put up that PPC billboard issued a statement around noon today basically saying "we're not breaking the law therefore this is fine," followed about an hour ago by another statement basically saying "oh hey people hate us now for this, maybe we should take the thing down after all."

    Amazing what a few local businesses promising to set an advertising company's finances on fire can do.

    There's a catwalk along the bottom of the sign, you just need to get up there with a telescoping pole with a paint roller on it. It wouldn't be that hard.

    This is the main problem with that billboard. Because the Assman is cool and the PPC is incapable of that.

    Meanwhile, following Patterson's removal of the pro-PPC hate signs, Bernier declared he is the victim of a totalitarian left pack. The exact term he used in French, a "meute", is filled with projection since the Meute is a Quebec alt-right hate-group solidly aligned with the PPC in ideology.

    Meanwhile, every news agency I've seen report on the signs has included a picture of them and in most cases a detailed written description of them, giving the PPC a free pan-Canadian headline-level publicity boost.

    I don’t like that they phrased it that way. None of the parties is advocating for ‘mass immigration’. Some want more, some want less. So now the alt right can claim that most Canadians agree with them, while implying that anyone left of them is totally for ‘mass immigration’

    In a victory for reality over rhetoric, New Brunswick's conservative government has released a plan to increase immigration to the province.

    It's because NB is actually shrinking.

  • TubularLuggageTubularLuggage Registered User regular
    NB's population growth at the moment is basically entirely thanks to immigration. To the point that even their conservative government has to admit that immigration is a good thing.

    Is NB shrinking more due to lower birth rates and higher death rates or people leaving the province for work/education/other opportunities?
